UCLA men's basketball takes their Bruin Road Show to the Honda Center in Orange County today at 4pm to face Pennsylvania. It's the first of four games at the splendid OC venue.
UCLA should get on the horn and see what they need to do to have newly-signed Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim player Albert Pujols make an appearance at one of the Bruin games at Honda Center.
It's been a rough start for the Bruins, so who can blame me if I'm thinking Pujols might help the Bruins snap out of their funk during a 2-5 start?
Of course, Angel fans will have to wait until Opening Day of baseball season to celebrate their new addition. In the meantime, Bruin fans who are travelling to Anaheim shouldn't be faulted if they make a quick stop to Disneyland to find Tinker Bell.
For those who think spinning Tea Cups and slam dunks don't mix, here are a few other ideas of how to enjoy the OC.
* Skip Splash Mountain and head to Downtown Disney, which includes loads of entertainment and shopping. Plus, there's three hours of free parking, so you'll have some fun before watching the Bruins take the court.
* Bring your credit card and patience before braving the holiday crowds at OC shopping mecca South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa (and just off the 405 freeway).
* Not ready to break the bank? Then go hit up the Orange County Market Place and people watch while finding something unusual and cheap to bring back after the game.
