Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

Ouch, this one hurts.

If only this sign had Oracle Arena heading the other way…

Boy, Our SF “City Family” is Really Counting on Stealing the Oakland Warriors from Oakland – “LET’S GROW WARRIORS?”

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

Is there anything wrong with leaving the Golden State Warriors in Oakland?

Anyway, here’s the scene in Golden Gate Park – I can’t imagine this arboreal/sports clothing line program “makes money” for our City Family, but rich like having fun too, and this is one way for them to do it:

Boy, the SF Marathon is Almost as Wacky as a Bay to Breakers – Oakland Warrior Juggler Dribbler, Firefighter, Die Hard

Monday, July 27th, 2015

Straight out of Oak-Town comes this Warriors Juggler – bounce toss toss, bounce toss toss. Stephen Curry here was in the zone.

And he doesn’t at all look like a money-hungry, anti-UCSF billionaire, but you never know…

And here’s the fireman, who might have been promoting an alcoholic drink – I couldn’t tell. But he did have the oxygen tank. And Die Hard here was wearing a marathon t-shirt from Europe. He kept on keeping on…

I was just passing through, but I’m supposing if you wanted to wait around for more wackiness, you’d find it here, at our annual San Francisco Marathon.

The Departure of Weathergirl Christina Loren from KNTV NBC San Jose is Upsetting a LOT of People

Friday, May 29th, 2015

[UPDATE: If you want updates on Christina, as thousands of you do, apparently, click on over to this Christina Loren page at RICH LIEBERMAN 415 MEDIA to get all the deets – he keeps up with things, to say the least.]

I’ll tell you, the only time I’ve watched NBC the past decade is at a few Super Bowl parties, the ones I can’t/couldn’t host myself because … NBC monopolizes the Super Bowl every three years, like clockwork, and I live in the center of Frisco with only a rabbit ear antenna to catch glimpses of the vast TV wasteland.

Anywho, I don’t know why tens of thousands have visited this tiny WordPress looking for info about Christina “Loren” recently – I suppose they’re just discovering the news of her recent departure from KNTV?

Here’s a snapshot of the Search Engine Terms people use to get to this site in order of popularity, currently. See? Like, “WHAT HAPPENED TO CHRISTINA LOREN” ‘n stuff like that:

Here’s an old post – it’s gotten hundreds of comments over the years, including a few from Christina’s household itself/Christina herself (I can’t narrow it down), if you can believe that, you generally “unkempt” Bay Area women, you “haters” both male and female.

Now I’ll tell you, whatever you say about Christina “Loren,” you can’t say she wouldn’t immediately boost the ratings of any Bay Area Station what hired her, when and if that’s possible…

Leaving you with a thumbnail of the most epic animated gif ever:

Barely Legal: Are These Freeway-Legal Vespas in the Slow Lane of the Bay Bridge or are they Merely “Motorized Bicycles?”

Thursday, May 28th, 2015

I’m thinking that these are Vespas, or similar, with engines displacing 150 cc’s, or more, so that would make them legal (barely) on CA freeways:

Even so, they were struggling going uphill, it looked like.

May all your lives be semi-charmed, at the very least…
