The San Francisco Giant's First Shortstop: Ed Bressoud

By Ed Attanasio, published on Apr 30, 2008

...Antonelli—that club was absolutely loaded with talent. The only problem was that the National League was a powerhouse full of great clubs back then. Milwaukee, Brooklyn, Pittsburgh—those were some good teams. We didn’t play particularly well that year and then in 1958 the team left New York and moved to San Francisco. I remember seeing signs from the fans that said ‘Please Don’t Go.’ I never thought we’d move to the West Coast, but we did. It was kind of sad.”

Can The Lakers Get By Without Bynum?

By Ed Attanasio, published on Apr 27, 2008

...man in the middle, and it will be tough without a large body to put up against a true center.

For those who aren’t familiar with the situation, Bynum injured his knee on January 13th when he landed on a teammate’s foot going for a rebound. He went to a knee specialist in New York on April 17th, but still hasn’t been cleared to practice.

The Lakers won’t comment on Bynum’s status and have been mysteriously quiet about the whole thing.

At this point, it might just be a better idea to leave Bynum out for the remainder of the season. To... (more)

A minute later the Naked Cowboy picked up the two tots, where they straddled his thighs while their Mother giddily snapped photos. What has New York come to?

The Naked Cowboy. He's clad in plum smugglin' man panties, rubs his bulbous yogurt cannon on children and the elderly. He will unabashedly tweak your Mother's sweater kittens and sing about wanting to screw your girlfriend. And people lap it up with shit eating grins on... (more)

...of a major news organization in a prominent American city. Though I have no delusions that this reviewer regarded my books as "fine literature," he gave a decent review of the books.Others go so far as to threaten to find me to do me bodily harm. I swear to God this is true: Some woman from New York threatened to fly to the city in Mexico where I live to slap me. She had the ganas to post this on Amazon.com where my book is featured. This is mild. We've gotten death threats.There is an incredibly small minority of Americans who expatriate to Mexico to learn the portal to the culture,... (more)

...to comprehend the social impact of such a varied news organization as BrooWaHa. Our crack team of investigative reporters stands ready and willing to mash the keys of their computers churning out exposés that rival the fair and balanced news reporting of such established news media as The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and The San Francisco Chronicle. All fine print newspapers in their own right, but rivaled in the on-line arena where most of America obtains its news.

Remembering The San Francisco Earthquake

By D. E. Carson, published on Apr 19, 2008

...people were headed west, the question, “Where ya goin’?” was answered with”San Francisco.” People didn’t go to Los Angeles the way they went to San Francisco. People didn’t go to Seattle the way they went to San Francisco. San Francisco had managed to establish itself as the “New York of the West.” Business headquartered in San Francisco in a tradition that continues to this day.

But no one could have envisioned the catastrophe that would befall that city 102 years ago today.
