Since Chianti Dan and Bonehead Block have completely failed to coordinate any type of community among Bruin alumni I wanted to plan a Bruin Viewing Party for the UCLA Opener in Rice on August 30
Like many others in this community, I have not renewed my Basketball and Football season tickets. I did not renew my UCLA Alumni Membership. I boycotted the UCLA Store and purchases of UCLA merchandise. I called Bonehead Block's office three times a week. I wrote letters, emails, and explained to every telemarketer for the The Wooden Athletic Fund why I would not participate any further as long as these two men were stewarding my beloved university toward obscurity.
During my time at UCLA Chianti Dan failed to generate excitement around UCLA Athletics. He abdicated his responsibility. Bonehead Block clearly wants to make UCLA a place where Athletics are irrelevant. In these times of economic hardship, the failure to bring UCLA friends and family together is atrocious. The facts have been repeated on this site many times by many people.
I will not stand by and watch these men destroy what I am so proud of. I will continue my boycott of Chianti Dan and Bonehead Block. But I will not abandon the Bruins. I live and work in DTLA and hope other members of the Bruin community can join me on August 30.
