Today’s main activity was to go to the Computer History Museum and lead a tour. Although this was the second time (see 3.062) since the pandemic, and the second time with my new, slimmed-down talk, it was a first in that the Museum is now really open and the tourists were real visitors. It went well, and again I finished in 50 minutes. I think I can add back a couple of things.
On return it was time to watch the Stanford women play Oregon. Stew had organized an 11th floor watch party and it was only 1:15 so I’d only missed the first quarter if that, so instead of watching my DVR I went up there. Which was fun, watching the game with half a dozen other fans.
Stanford looked like they were suffering an emotional let-down after Friday’s game, where they clinched the PAC-12 regular season championship. They trailed from the start, behind from 5 to 12 points the whole way into the 4th quarter. With 5 minutes to go they got some defensive stops and a few points and the game was tied60-60 with two minutes to go. It remained tied for another minute and a half. Only with 36 seconds left did Stanford get a bucket-and-one. The Ducks just couldn’t get their last couple of shots to go in, and Stanford squeaked out a win. They are 15-0 in PAC12 play with 2 games to go.
