Lot’s of incredibly distracting stuff takes place at AT&T Park during San Francisco Giants games. There have been floating DeLoreans, Cats on boats, and massive bat rays (to name a few). This flying surfboard, however, is the latest and greatest. As if floating isn’t enough. He can also do tricks!

The Nerd Power movement in Oakland is alive and well. Friday’s game featured a “nerdy” glasses giveaway in honor of bespectacled second baseman, Eric Sogard. To coincide with the game, this “Talk Nerdy To Me” music video was released. It appears to be produced by members of “The Herd,” which coincidentally rhymes with nerd. …

What happens when a grade school student goes one-on-one with an NBA Slam Dunk competition contestant? Epic posterization, of course.

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…

There’s a new sport coat for the consummate professional that is forced to suppress the urge to scream like a lunatic fan, while secretly watching the Warriors play an East Coast game during business hours.

Freaky Friday came a day early for San Francisco Giants pitchers Tim Lincecum and Kameron Loe, who hopefully only swapped uniforms, rather than bodies like in the movie.

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.

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.

Jim Harbaugh doesn’t have a new contract, but he may have ironed out the details of another important negotiation.

While the real NaVorro Bowman recovers from a serious knee injury, the video game version is a touchdown machine. San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton came up with an interesting idea, lining the All-Pro defender up as a running back in Madden 25. Surprisingly, it work. Patton’s enthusiasm is off the charts after watching…

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.

Sebastian Janikowski gets most of the attention when it comes to kicking prowess, but Marquette King may have the biggest boot on the Oakland Raiders. King, 25, looked impressive while being featured along with several other NFL punters in a video that was recently posted by Kohl’s Kicking Camp. The kicking camp also has videos…

After going to sleep with a comfortable lead, Oakland Athletics fans woke up on Friday morning to find out that Eric Sogard somehow lost the “Face of MLB” competition. The herculean effort of underdog A’s fans were eventually trumped by the Eastern Time Zone. Voting closed at 5 a.m. PST, allowing New York Mets fans…

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…

Oakland Athletics right fielder Josh Reddick made two of the most ridiculous catches you’ll ever see.

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…
