Getting Excited About The San Francisco Giants

2010 has been a good year for the Giants. While the team is putting together a solid run for the National League Wild Card, the people in charge of decorating the stadium need to do a better job at positioning posters around exit signs. Giants fail.

Update: “GIANTS FAIL” was added to the photo.

Drinking And Biking

Hate it when your beverage gets warm while you’re riding your bike?

A company out of Jacksonville, Florida (which I’m guessing has lax open container laws) has combined the enjoyment of drinking cold beverages and bike riding with the Kroozie.

My bike recently got suped up with a kroozie, which perfectly holds a can of Hansen’s Natural Soda or any other can the same size of a Hansen’s Natural Soda.

Finally, Underwear Delivery Made Simple

Pitchfork Music Festival goer and Tri-State hipster, jantzcommasteve, gave us the heads up on Manpacks, an E-Commerce site offering delivery of mens underwear, t-shirts and socks on a reoccurring three month basis. There are several options available, including the “Machopack”, which hooks you up with three fresh pairs of each garment for $39. I’m pretty sure this is real because NPR is included among their press clips.

3 Bedrooms, Hardwood Floors and Bike Parking Available

Finding an apartment in San Francisco that comes with a parking spot is comparable to a magic trick. However, I don’t think I’ve ever come across a Craigslist ad for an apartment that comes with bike parking.

Review: Marshmallow Popcorn

Marshmallow popcorn; sounds good, but really isn’t. I found a box of this stuff deep in the back of my pantry and tried it out of curiosity. Marshmallow popcorn will make your apartment smell like the inside of Madison Square Garden when it plays host to the Ringling Brothers Circus. It can also lead to suffering in the form of a stomach ache.

The Art of Naming A Boat

I have always been told that a boat should be named after your wife. For example, my uncle’s boat the “St. Clair”, which is named after his wife Clair. A boat named after a girl just sounds right…this is my boat isn’t “she” beautiful? But what do you do if you’re not married or the boat has multiple owners? This is exactly the dilema that my friend Terry and the four other owners of their 26′ Bistol sailboat found themselves dealing with.

Terry and his crew have been working to bring the boat back to life for the past three years, work that seems never ending. As soon as one thing gets painted, something else needs to be fixed, sanded and redone.

The boat may not be in the water just yet, but she’s been given one of the best names I’ve ever heard; Chicks Ahoy!

Drinking Abita Beer For Charity

When British Petroleum started destroying our beautiful white sand beaches along the Gulf Coast, Abita Beer began brewing a charity beer called SOS (Save Our Shore). Working with the Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board, proceeds from Abita’s SOS will “assist with the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive this disastrous oil spill.” In addition, Abita will donate 75¢ for each bottle sold. I wasn’t planning on drinking this delicious beer, but if I have to, I guess I will.
