San Francisco Giants
For those of you who can't make it downtown San Francisco (or simply don't want to deal with the rainy weather), 7x7 will post scenes from today's Giants World Series Parade. From the spectacle's start at Embarcadero to the big presentation at Civic Center Plaza, from Hunter Pence to Madison Bumgarner, we have all of the orange-and-black pride covered.
Buster Posey gets mobbed by fans (what's new), Matt Cain explains his love for SF restaurants, and Angel Pagan steals our hearts!
On September 22, hundreds of partiers boarded the beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon—the $7 million dollar, 4.5 story flagship vessel of the Commodore Fleet—for Decks on Deck, a sold-out benefit supporting the Patrick Landers Foundation and the San Francisco Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Guests cruised the Bay while enjoying a bevy of bites and beverages, and rocked to to a surprise DJ set with Thievery Corporation featuring Rob Garza. The vessel even passed by McCovey Cove so guests could shout out support for our San Francisco Giants battling the Padres.
On August 31st, sports luminaries from around the Bay Area—including Brian Wilson, the world-champion San Francisco Giants—convened at Broadway Studios in San Francisco for the annual benefit for the Foundation for Spinal Muscular Atrophy. The event included a lively auction of cherished memorabilia, restaurant gift certificates, entertainment packages and more, while guests enjoyed complimentary beverages and bites.
On May 20, the Leukemia Lymphoma Society of San Francisco hosted the sold-out event "Decks on Deck", a benefit aboard the 7 million dollar, 4.5 story flagship vessel Cabernet Sauvignon, which supported San Francisco Giants colleague Patrick Landers who is fighting Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. While celebrity DJ Mix Master Mike spun records all night long, guests enjoyed drinks, dancing, and games all in the name of charitable revelry. The annual event's goal is to generate funds for a specific individual battling a form of this devastating disease and for the San Francisco chapter of the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.

Upon clinching the National League pennant, host of Fox's The Cheap Seats, Chris Rose, wrangled an ecstatic Brian Wilson from drenching his teammates in champagne for yet another endlessly hysterical interview.

But among all the excitement, more than a few people have been puzzled by the seemingly inside joke reference to "The Machine." To alleviate your curiosity, we've dug up the original Cheap Seats interview that started it all. Be prepared for cheeky hilarity. Check out the shortened version here:
