Well, Here It Is, The Richmond District’s New Academy: The SF Baseball Academy – Inside of the Old Bridge Theatre

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Here it is, this mothership is fully operational – the open house was last month.

The marquee, oddly, used to sing the praises of Supervisor Mark Farrell, until recently:

Read all about it from this bit in the San Francisco Chronicle. Noteworthy:

“He hit a bit of a rough patch while in college. On a visit home for the holidays in 2007, he got embroiled in the infamous “Baker’s Dozen” incident, in which a group of visiting Yale students got into a fight with some hometown boys at a New Year’s party. Though he was a latecomer to the fisticuffs, Aicardi was named in a civil suit seeking damages, along with his brother Richard. In the end, no charges were filed against him and the matter was settled privately...”

In other words, settled privately for big bucks. I’ll just add that the straight-shooting Matier and Ross team had a different take on the “I’m 20 deep and my boys are coming” incident, where jelly and beer were mixed in a quite unappealing fashion. If somebody wanted to say, well, I’ve made a public apology and I’m struggling to move on, ala Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, well, it’s never too late to do something like that, whether you claim you’re barred from doing so or not. Moving on…

I used to turn the lights on at an old Landmark theatre and the all the fuse panels looked a little like this – I’ll tell you, the monthly electricity bill was through the roof, it was a major expense. I’m sure it was similar at the Bridge. Like, even if somebody gave the building to you for free, would it be worth the time and money to operate it as a theatre? I don’t think it was.

So maybe this academy will make money or maybe it’s more a labor of love. We’ll see.

An “experience beyond ownership,” whatever that meant.

Now here’s another on 19th Avenue, just recently:

So what, your wife spends $1000-something bucks to have two bros deliver a Lambo to your office on a Friday afternoon and then you’ll be a big macher for the weekend?

I’ll tell you, this business makes no sense in Frisco.

Click to expand

We welcome all women riders of different age groups, ethnicities and backgrounds. We are a tight knit group of women who support each other on and off the road. Requirements are only that you display a desire to ride, be trustworthy, respectful toward all our other brothers and sisters and  define this sisterhood to be an addition of your already existing family. 
We do have a prospecting period which has been put in place for us to get to know you and you to get to know us. This lifestyle and Sisterhood may come easy to some but not to all.
As women we encourage other women to get out there and ride, have fun, get to know one another and expand your circle of friends.
The Vixens also spend a lot of time together not just riding but with our families doing other things off the road such as camping, days at the park and special holidays. This is not just a club, it’s our family.
So regardless of your interests if you enjoy riding we welcome one and all to join us. We ride all the time and whether 2 of us, 4 of us, or all of us you can bet we are having fun and that’s what it’s all about! “

The Happy Morning Joggers of the Tenderloin – Could This Be the New UC Hastings Running Club, the “Legal Eagles?”

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

Usually when people run in the corrupt Twitterloin / Civic Center / Tenderloin area, it’s because they’re either victims or perpetrators, right?

So just jogging around for fun, well, that’s something new I think.
