All is right in the world again: Baseball is back.
Both local favorites, the San Francisco Giants and Oakland A’s, reported to Spring Training this week to mark the official beginning to baseball season and an all-important step to erasing the game that shall not be mentioned from the minds of the Bay Area.
Payam Rajabi became a San Francisco celebrity and the envy of every Bay Area bachelor last month when he was featured in a Verizon ad for the Love Cycle Droid Razr M. The adorable commercial followed his efforts to bike a heart-shaped path around the city. The story was inspired by Rajabi's own Valentine's Day gift to his girlfriend the year before.
Is the Super Bowl-related hangover really that bad, or is hair actually one of the week’s dominating sports stories in the Bay Area?
Today’s ride will be a test of your climbing legs as we venture to the top of one of the more little known areas of the GGNRA in San Mateo county, Sweeney Ridge. Although it has been immortalized in one of the many iconic posters from the Parks Conservancy, it gets nowhere near the visitors other areas of the park receive.
My pilates teacher, Karii Rürup-Coleman, once said, "Couples who work out together, stay together." And for that she's offering a private duet pilates session for you and your sweetie in lieu of the usual Valentine's Day cheese.
Follow your gut, and who knows where you’ll end up. If you’re anything like Kirk Lombard, your happy place might be between the tides in an underwater raw bar of sorts—host to bounties of moon snails, mussels, monkeyface eels, and horse neck, jackknife, and piddock clams, all ripe for the plucking.
That bitter taste left in the mouths of Bay Area folk will forever be accompanied by an image of an irate, hatless Jim Harbaugh pleading at an official for a holding call.
Instead, the San Francisco 49ers’ quest for a sixth Super Bowl triumph ultimately ended in a 34-31 defeat to the Baltimore Ravens on the controversial fourth-down play, which saw plenty of contact between Baltimore’s Jimmy Smith and San Francisco’s Michael Crabtree.
The epic year for San Francisco sports continues! If the 49ers succeed this Sunday, they'll become the second team in NFL history with 6 Super Bowl wins (sharing the honor with the Steelers). The 49ers have never been to a Super Bowl and lost (knock on wood!), so that's pretty exciting.
You don't have to travel to Sausalito to be privy to a houseboat community. Most people don't realize that one exists within San Francisco.
The world of Bay Area sports can be a whirlwind–unless you have someone to take you by the hand and show the way. That's where Sean Swaby comes in–every week, he'll highlight all the most important things going down on the local sports scene.
