Let’s Get Lefty in the Hall of Fame!
I went to Lefty O’Doul’s restaurant the other day, ordered an O’Doul’s and sat down to interview Tom O’Doul, Lefty’s cousin. Is that triple déjà vu or what? Right now, there is a movement to get Lefty elected to the Hall of Fame. The Buck O'Neil Lifetime Achievement Award will be awarded to people who were ambassadors to the game and have promoted the game of baseball during their lifetime. Frank "Lefty" O'Doul did this and was certainly an ambassador, mentor and promoter of the game during his lifetime. If you would like to help in our letter writing... Read More
Sports fans in Washington, D.C. finally have some hope that the future for their major sports franchises will be better than the recent past. Except for the Washington Capitals hockey team, the other 3 major sports teams – the Redskins, Wizards and Nationals have been bottom dwellers in the standings. Now with the prospect of new, young and star level talent on the horizon, there is hope anew.
The latest stroke of potential good fortune is with the Washington Wizards having the winning ping pong ball in this month’s lottery for the top pick in the NBA. With the odds against them, the... Read More
They called him “Coach”
A San Francisco football coaching legend, Vince Tringali, died on March 31. He was 81. Tringali grew up in North Beach and played nose guard on the fabled "glory team" of USF (1951-52), on a defensive line that included the likes of Gino Marchetti, Dick Stanfel, and Bob St. Clair, all of whom went on to become stars in the NFL. The ’51 USF team went undefeated, but wasn’t invited to play in any bowls, because the team refused to leave two black teammates (including Ollie Matson) at home. They’re known forever as the “unbeaten, untied and uninvited” team and could... Read More
I located this endearing story by accident. Right here in San Francisco, there’s a third-grader named Andy Finch. People are calling him a curling phenomenon and a future star. He’s won six state and regional tournaments in his age group and he’s already training for the 2018 Winter Olympics. His parents Amy and Alan Finch are very proud of their son and more than happy to help Andy in his pursuit for gold and fame.
"Andy is a curler, plain and simple," Alan Finch said. "We let him try all the sports and it came down to either NASCAR or curling. Since he doesn't have his drivers license,... Read More
The San Francisco Giants will celebrate the tenth anniversary of their first game at AT&T Park on April 9th versus the Atlanta Braves.
Wow, it’s already been ten years since this ballpark opened and it has seen a World Series, a plethora of home run records courtesy of Barry Bonds, an All-Star Game, a no-hitter, and two consecutive Cy Young seasons courtesy of Tim Lincecum.
It’s been a great decade for Pacific Bell Park (named until 2003), SBC Park (until 2005), and finally AT&T Park, as it was renamed on March 3, 2006. The AT&T is always in the top rankings when... Read More
More and more people are tired of living in California. Folks don’t want to live in a broke state full of high prices, foreclosures and layoffs. And sports fans in the formerly Golden State are also a disgruntled bunch, because the teams we’re watching are mostly terrible.
I should say first that the L.A. Lakers, L.A. Kings, the San Diego Chargers, the Anaheim Ducks, the San Jose Sharks and the S.F. Giants probably don’t belong in this discussion…for now. The Lakers are the reigning NBA Champs and could repeat this year. The team has an incredible track record and the organization has... Read More

I’ll say this for Josh McDaniels: when he was named head coach of the Denver Broncos this offseason after Bronco Collapse v1.0, he inherited a Kiddie Corral full of immature, unruly players. Jay Cutler’s public foot-stamping upon hearing his name discussed in trade talks... Read More
