    I remember being shocked to see the bits of shattered glass still remaining at the scene of the accident on Appian Way and Marlesta Road. I was there to record video of the memorial for Diego Garcia, a life-long A’s fan that was tragically killed by a suspected drunk driver. The gravity of the situation…

    A Tupac Shakur look-alike attended the Warriors-Celtics game on Wednesday. The crowd even started chanting for him. The real 2Pac would probably be happy the Warriors won.

    Harbaugh half-court shot

    Jim Harbaugh’s hoop dreams became a reality on Wednesday. The San Francisco 49ers’ coach stopped by the University of Kansas campus — dressed head-to-toe in his signature gameday attire — and drained a half-court shot. The big-time bucket was captured by ESPN’s cameras. There’s a funky music cut playing over the video, so, it’s unclear…

    Oakland has ports. Portland has oaks. The two cities share some similarities, but they can’t share the Raiders. That’s where a recent online petition comes into play. Over 1,600 people have signed a letter asking the Governor of Oregon to help move an NFL team to Portland. The Raiders aren’t specifically mentioned in the petition,…

    Aaron Paul played a character that was depressed, disturbed, and often kicked around on Breaking Bad. With that in mind, it’s kind of fun to see him having a good time while goofing around on a big league pitching mound. Paul, who played Walter White’s sidekick/nemesis, Jesse Pinkman, was at AT&T Park as a part of a promotional effort for his new movie Need for Speed.

    While the real NaVorro Bowman recovers from a serious knee injury, the video game version is a touchdown machine.

    Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson still has game. He easily took down Stephen Curry, who is known to be one of the best pure shooters in the league, in a shooting contest. Maybe shooting exhibitions aren’t Curry’s thing.

    Sogard Face of MLB

    Let’s be real. Voting for Eric Sogard to be the “Face of MLB” isn’t about baseball. It’s not about the fans’ love of Sogard (although he is quite popular). It’s about proving that anything is possible if people come together. It’s about Oakland Athletics fans showing the establishment they can’t be ignored forever. It’s a…

    The Milwaukee Brewers’ racing sausages now have to compete with a hot dog. On February 17, a stray dog roamed into the Brewers’ spring training facility and the team quickly adopted him. The pooch named “Hank” after Hank Aaron, of course, has become the team’s unofficial mascot. Even with all of Hank’s newfound fame, no…
