In 2017, It Shall Be Known As Hollyweed

The high-minded folks at CBS Los Angeles have been kind enough to live-stream what's going at Mount Lee. Of course, the government narcs are restoring the sign to its old name. But don't fear. This isn't the first time vandals have done god's work at Mount Lee. The vandal's art recalls a famous incident from New Years Day 1976 when a student at Cal State Northridge named Danny Finegood pulled the same stunt. -- Gizmodo

Merry pranksters changed famed Hollywood sign to read "Hollyweed"

Hikers and tourists in the hills spent the morning snapping photos of themselves in front of the altered sign before park rangers began removing the tarps. "But hey it's OK with me!" It was first changed to "Hollyweed" on the New Year day of 1976, when a California State University, Northridge student hung curtains over some of the letters to change the sign. -- Equilibrio Informativo

The Broncos (7-4) close out the non-conference portion of their schedule winners of three straight.

A silver and gold chip on the shoulder

Boise State’s 79-62 win over Cal State Northridge last night looks like a nice one on the surface. But it was an odd one. The first half was all Broncos. They went on an early 15-0 run and led by 26 points at the half. But the second half turned into a foul fest. For the game, referees whistled 57 fouls, resulting in a whopping 78 free throws, 29 more than in any other Boise State game this season. Fun. The Broncos made 33 of their 43 attempts, offsetting 36 percent shooting. The positive was defense, as they held a Matadors team that was averaging 80.7 points to just 62 (and seven of them came in garbage time in the final minute). -- NWCN
