Don’t Forget, the KRAFT Fight Hunger Bowl is Almost Here – Tickets Still Available for December 31st Game

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

There’s was some news conference yesterday that nobody told me about so oh well.

But find out all about it after the jump.

Now, which squad do you think will win on Saturday? The Bruins…

…or the Illini?

 

It’s like $25 for a cheap seat – you can afford that, right?

See you there!

It’s Official: It’ll be the UCLA Bruins vs. the Illinois Fighting Illini at the “KRAFT Fight Hunger Bowl” Dec 31 at AT&T Park

Monday, December 5th, 2011

See? This is the news that came out last night:

Get all the deets after the jump, but before that, see me try to puzzle out who would play from five days back:

The annual Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl (that new name is starting to sound normal to me already) is a coming to the Phone Booth on Saturday, December 31st, 2011.

Where else will you watch an NCAA bowl game in NorCal?

Oh, what’s that, you want to know who’s playing this year? Well, let’s look to the past:

2010 — Nevada 20, Boston College 13
2009 — USC 24, Boston College 13
2008 — California 24, Miami 17
2007 — Oregon State 21, Maryland 14
2006 — Florida State 44, UCLA 27
2005 — Utah 38, Georgia Tech 10
2004 — Navy 34, New Mexico 19
2003 — Boston College 35, Colorado State 21
2002 — Virginia Tech 20, Air Force 13

As you can see, sort of, there’s gotta be a Pac-12 team on the field – that’s current rule.

Here’s one stab at it:

“Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl 
December 31, 2011 San Francisco, CA, 3:30 pm ESPN 
Payout: $1.675 million
Pac-12 No. 6 vs. Army (WAC if Army not available)”

But it looks like their prediction has recently changed, based on this:

“Scout’s 2011 bowl prediction for the Illini has them heading out San Francisco to participate in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. There, Scout predicts, the Illini would take on the UCLA Bruins, who would be 6-7 on the season and also likely minus its coach as well. Two teams with a combined record of 12-13 and without head coaches doesn’t exactly sound like the most appetizing match up, but such is one of the downsides of the current bowl system.”

So, as recently as yesterday, some people were thinking it could be this squad…

…versus this one, the crew from Illinois. (You know, they’re looking for men, as always.)

All right, see you there!

All right, all the deets after the jump

How To Make Six Figures in the 415 Without an Education: Become a MUNI Driver – They’re Hiring, You Know

Friday, September 9th, 2011

Now, it’s not my job to get you a job, but MUNI is pretty much always looking for new drivers.

Correct me if I’m wrong but starting salary is higher than what BART pays their somewhat shooty, “newby” officers, so there you go.

This driver didn’t seem to know what he was doing, so I’m forced to assume he’s a recent hire.

As seen yesterday on Market:

Anyway, even if you have an education, this could be for you. Maybe just for a while, until the Great Recession ends?

Friday, August 19th, 2011

An entire hippie drum circle was riveted on this scene in the Golden Gate park Panhandle a while back.

Note love seat on the roof of the minivan – it was there for about a week.

Note bowling ball imprint on windshield.

Note how many cops it took to get this man and his friend on their way:

Appeared to be a lot of drama going on.

Anyway, there’s a lot of material here, so just make up your own story…

Supervisor Sophie Maxwell’s Barack Obama Handbag – For The Win

Saturday, February 28th, 2009

Here’s San Francisco Supervisor Sophie Maxwell TCB (Taking Care of Business) on a weekend trying to sort through issues relating to Speaker of the the House Nancy Pelosi and the Golden Gate Bridge. But what’s this – a vibrant Barack Obama leather handbag? Let’s take a closer look:

Is that a Coach Leatherware brass grommet? It seems to be: 

Why doesn’t Coach follow the lead of Ben & Jerry’s and Southwest Airlines and make a million of these? They’d sell well.
