I Sing in the Shower. I could Probably Do It.

By Gary Schwind, published on Sep 6, 2007

...If there were one place you’d name as your favorite, what would it be? I had a great time in most of the places that I visited. I was a really big fan of New Zealand. There’s Auckland and Christchurch which are kind of small cities compared to Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco, but beyond that it’s all just little main street towns and lots of national parks. It’s kind of like here where you can ski in the morning and surf that evening. There’s mountains and beaches in pretty close proximity. They’ve got a very (pause) environmental... (more)

Brunching It Up in San Francisco

By Ed Attanasio, published on Aug 20, 2007

I love brunch. It’s my favorite meal of the week. There’s just something about a great brunch that makes my Sunday. Or Saturday. Or any day, for that matter. I recently found two really awesome brunch places in San Francisco. They’re both really outstanding and very different. Mama’s has a more traditional, “comfort food” brunch, while Anzu has a more contemporary brunch that takes a lot of chances and scores on every one of them. MAMA’S 1701 Stockton Street San Francisco, CA 94133 (415) 362-6421 Hours: (Tues-Sun) 8:00 am-3:00 pm This legendary North Beach/Washington Square... (more)

There's No Suing in Baseball!

By Ed Attanasio, published on Aug 17, 2007

...player clients and it is going to get very ugly. This article appeared yesterday in The Boston Globe: Curt Schilling expressed no emotion yesterday after being informed that attorneys representing slugger Barry Bonds may be targeting the Red Sox pitcher for comments he made about the San Francisco Giants to HBO’s Bob Costas. In a joint statement, attorneys Todd Schneider and John Burris said they are representing Bonds “in connection with legal issues arising from the myriad of false statements attributed to him by players, the media and others.” Attorney... (more)

"Viva El Tigre!"

By Ed Attanasio, published on Aug 13, 2007

...dominate the sport's attention over the next two, three, maybe four years, at most. He has won 13 times in 44 majors as a professional (Nicklaus won 11 in his first 44). If Woods maintains that pace, you had better get your tickets right now to the 2012 U.S. Open at the Olympic Club in San Francisco – just up the road from Stanford, where Woods went to school – because that's when he's going to tie it. Except it won't take that long. Like his first name might imply, Woods is at his best when he's about to pounce, about to go for the kill. He tends to refocus, redouble... (more)

Jenks is White Sox Hot!

By Ed Attanasio, published on Aug 11, 2007

...a team player, something that’s more and more of a rarity in today’s sports world. Jenks did not make himself available to the media afterward because he did not want to discuss the streak, a team spokesman said. He's three batters away from tying the record Jim Barr set for San Francisco in 1972. Josh Fields hit two homers, Jermaine Dye went deep and Juan Uribe doubled in the go-ahead run in the seventh for the White Sox, who have won seven of nine against four teams in playoff contention: the New York Yankees, the Detroit Tigers, the Cleveland Indians and the Mariners.... (more)

Bill Walsh, Football Hall of Famer, Dies

By rjlight, published on Jul 30, 2007

After fighting leukemia since 2004, Bill Walsh, former San Francisco 49ers General Manager and Stanford coach, passed away today at 75 years of age. Bill Walsh brought the 49ers to three Super Bowl victories, making the 49ers the “team of the 80's.” Bill Walsh changed the offensive game of football and was even nicknamed the "genius"—a title he never denied. According to John Madden, the nickname was well deserved. Bill Walsh was able to bring the offensive game to a new level -- perfecting the passing game. At a time when coaches would run the ball at and eventually pass, Walsh would pass... (more)

Critical Mass Has Become a Pain in SF's A--!

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jul 28, 2007

The monthly Critical Mass bike ride will take place today beginning at 6 p.m., according to San Francisco police. Critical Mass is a bunch of idiots who feel like they’re making a difference by riding their bikes recklessly, clogging up traffic, antagonizing drivers and pedestrians and basically acting like obnoxious a-holes. For some reason, they think they’re making some type of statement about freedom and independence and the supposed rights of cyclists. But, in the end, all they’re doing is pissing people off. I have witnessed at least half a dozen Critical Mass rides and I’ve... (more)
