  • Sweat SF: Everything You Need To Know About AirFit Altitude Training

    The next time you hop on your bike, go for a run, or just hit the circuit after a few AirFit sessions, you'll feel like a super hero. What's AirFit's power? Is it the rays of the yellow sun shining down on you as you drive to the Pleasanton training facility? Mysterious substances in the steam room? Nothing that mythical: instead, they've built a space-age training room, then sucked the oxygen from it, creating an atmosphere similar to that of a high-altitude location. Which means that those of us who live and work out in low-lying San Francisco will  be gasping for…

    Today, the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District’s Board of Directors voted in favor of at least considering tolls for cyclists and pedestrians along the city's most iconic landmark. That's one way of not saying yes while not saying no.  So really the action today isn't a win or a loss for bike and pedestrian advocates yet —  it just means that the Board will study the tolls as one possibility to help offset the $33 million deficit projected over the next five years.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

    A few weeks ago, a pair of San Francisco restaurants posted window signs that have stirred up a hornet’s nest of anti-gluten sentiment. The first to make news was SO’s “We don’t give a shit about gluten-free” tirade; the second was Burr-Eatery’s sign claiming nobody was gluten-free in Colonial Mexico.  Both signs were championed by locals, which further marginalizes those who have medical reasons for avoiding gluten, carbohydrates, or other foods.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — One of the largest gold nuggets in modern times pulled from Northern California’s historic Gold Country has sold to a secret buyer. Even the sales price of the so-called Butte Nugget will remain a mystery at the buyer’s request. But Don Kagin, the San Francisco-area coin dealer who brokered the deal, said that the sale price for the nugget weighing slightly more than 6 pounds wasn’t far off from the asking price of about $400,000. A gold hunter in July found the nugget in the mountains of Butte County; it went up for sale Thursday with the deal…

In his glorious heyday as bassist and lead vocalist of 1960s power trio Cream he helped create a sound that combined American blues and psychedelia to thrill audiences throughout the world.

    By Sam McPherson The Kansas City Royals had the San Francisco Giants right where they wanted them in Game Three of the 2014 World Series: trailing going into the late innings. In the endgame, it was vaunted Kansas City closer Greg Holland versus the heart of the Giants’ batting order in the ninth: catcher Buster Posey, third baseman Pablo Sandoval and right fielder Hunter Pence. Eight pitches later, the Royals had a 3-2 victory — and a 2-1 World Series lead. When the Fall Classic has been tied at one game apiece, the winner of Game Three has gone on to win the Series 37 times out…

    Both the Giants and the Royals have pretty much steam-rolled their way into the World Series as the obvious two best teams in their league during the playoffs. While the Royals have gone undefeated to this point in October, the Giants have lost just two, and both teams have plenty of momentum heading into Tuesday night's game one.There's been so much breakdown of this series over the last few days, and I'm sure we've heard just about every body's opinion at this point, so I'm just gonna keep it short and simple. Each team will send their ace to the mound in game one, with Madison Bumgarner…

After winning a tight NLDS Game 4 over Washington at AT&T Park Tuesday night, they'll have a chance to do it again.Ryan Vogelsong showed up in yet another crucial October start and did exactly what he had to do and that was throw up some early zeroes. In fact, he was so sharp tonight it took Washington a few innings to hit him.

They're the top team in the NL Wild Card race and moved to within a game of the NL West-leading Dodgers with Friday night's victory. With a soft schedule and an improving squad, they look primed for a strong finish. Last post, we talked about the steadiness of the offense, and how they've really done a complete 180 since the emergence of Joe Panik in that two hole and Andrew Susac as Posey's backup. Each rookie's success has given Bochy freedom with the lineup and in…

The Giants top pick from the 2011 draft, Panik had a quiet start to his professional career before a solid season in AA Richmond last year and a torrid start at AAA Fresno this season.

    Trailing Game 3 of the World Series by one run in the bottom of the eighth inning, the Giants desperately needed a baserunner. They almost got one on a Gregor Blanco bunt, but Statcast shows how a smooth play by Royals catcher Salvador Perez and a poor decision by Blanco helped Kansas City hold on for a 3-2 victory and 2-1 Series lead.

    The Giants' 3-2 loss to the Royals in Game 3 on Friday night in San Francisco played out much like the first two games of this World Series did. The team whose bullpen outperformed the other's won.

    Tim Hudson, at 39 years old, waited a long time for his World Series debut, but the Royals put the pressure on early in Game 3 so the Giants' veteran right-hander had little time to take in the experience.

    A few hours before World Series Game 3, Michael Morse was sick -- a flu bug, he thinks -- leaving the Giants potentially without their best bench bat in a critical game. Yet by the time manager Bruce Bochy approached him in the middle innings to ask what he could contribute, Morse was feeling well enough to hit.

They were 26-30 at the start of play on Friday, including the 2002 affair between the Giants and Angels, in which San Francisco took one of two in Anaheim, but fell in its return to AT&T Park and eventually lost in seven games.

  • Rookie getting his Halloween look on (The Associated Press)

    24 Oct 2014 | 11:18 am
    Titans rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger shaved off the beard he's been growing since July on Thursday, grabbing the spare clippers he keeps in his locker after practice. Mettenberger kept a moustache and a soul patch just above his chin, and he wore a red headband, too. Asked if he shaved because he knew the media was coming, Mettenberger said he thought it would a good look for the front page of the local newspaper. His beard had gotten pretty thick and shaggy, but Mettenberger didn't shave just to avoid a beard comparison with Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
  • NFL against the spread picks: Looking at the updated Super Bowl odds (Shutdown Corner)

    24 Oct 2014 | 10:41 am
    Since the NFL is already carving "Denver Broncos" into this season's Lombardi Trophy, there's probably no use in checking the Super Bowl odds almost halfway through the season. But let's do so anyway, for kicks. It's hard to figure out who the second-best team in the NFL is. Which means that there should be value in the Super Bowl odds, just in case the Broncos blow it in the playoffs again (I know, hard to imagine). Here are the odds for every semi-legitimate contender (the Raiders are 3000-to-1, if you feel like setting your money on fire), from Bovada via OddsShark.com , before Thursday's…
  • Unfazed, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh doing it his way (The Associated Press)

    24 Oct 2014 | 9:12 am
    The way his big brother tells it, Jim Harbaugh never minded the regular moves every few years for his father's football coaching jobs because he needed a change in towns to find fresh surroundings and make new friends given how quickly he ran them off. Fast forward about four decades and Harbaugh is in the fourth year of his $25 million, five-year contract coaching the San Francisco 49ers, and the relationship might be wearing thin despite success on the field. Harbaugh carries on amid speculation he is grating on everyone from his players to the front office and could be on his way out. Not…
  • Manning, Sanders lead Broncos past Chargers, 35-21 (The Associated Press)

    24 Oct 2014 | 1:29 am
    Emmanuel Sanders is speedy, not greedy. The Denver Broncos' fleet wide receiver insisted he wasn't lobbying Peyton Manning to throw him a fourth touchdown pass Thursday night. He was perfectly satisfied with his trio of scoring catches in the Broncos' 35-21 victory over the San Diego Chargers. This is exactly what Sanders was talking about when he called Denver ''wide receiver heaven'' upon his arrival in free agency in the offseason.
  • Manning's Broncos corral Chargers (AFP)

    23 Oct 2014 | 11:05 pm
    Five-time NFL MVP Peyton Manning added to his latest record by throwing three touchdown passes to Emmanuel Sanders in the Denver Broncos 35-21 victory over the San Diego Chargers. The win comes four days after quarterback Manning broke Brett Favre's record for most career touchdown passes in a 42-17 demolition of the San Francisco 49ers. Against the Chargers, Manning completed 25-of-35 passes for 286 yards and three touchdowns to bring his career National Football League touchdown total to 513.

  • Week 7 in Review

    mrskvall
    20 Oct 2014 | 8:40 pm
    Week 7 has come to a close and it was a week filled with upsets, comebacks and record setting moments. Thursday Night kicked off week 7 with a divisional game against the New York Jets and the New England Patriots. The Jets, despite their struggles this season, kept it a close game, and almost staged a comeback, but the Patriots blocked the Jets attempt at a field goal to protect their 27-25 victory. Good news for the Jets this week. They acquired a new offensive weapon on Friday, but we’ll get to that later. My beloved Saints played Sunday and they still can’t seem to solve their…

And it actually provides some insight into what’s going to transpire on Sunday and Monday. So with that thought in mind, here are five bold predictions for Week 8 in the NFL: *** 5.

    A few weeks ago, a pair of San Francisco restaurants posted window signs that have stirred up a hornet’s nest of anti-gluten sentiment. The first to make news was SO’s “We don’t give a shit about gluten-free” tirade; the second was Burr-Eatery’s sign claiming nobody was gluten-free in Colonial Mexico.  Both signs were championed by locals, which further marginalizes those who have medical reasons for avoiding gluten, carbohydrates, or other foods.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

  • CA School to Become First Vegan School in the Country

    The United States will have its first ever all vegan school in 2015. MUSE School CA was founded by environmental activist Suzy Amis Cameron (aka wife of James Cameron) and her sister Rebecca Amis back in 2006. Since then, kids have been encouraged to “live consciously within themselves” and with solar panels across the school, classrooms built with recycled […]

    You gotta love the fact that Scott Brown is providing the comic relief for yet one more election cycle. It’s just gravy that he’s doing it this year as a carpetbagger. Today’s fun can be found in Tuesday night’s debate, moderated by NBC’s Chuck Todd. Todd asked him to provide the evidence for his contention that ISIS […]

  • Judge tosses S.F. law meant to shield evicted tenants

    Phil
    22 Oct 2014 | 9:41 am
    San Francisco apartment owners scored a major victory Tuesday when a federal judge declared unconstitutional the city’s attempt to shield evicted tenants from soaring rents by substantially increasing the relocation fees the tenants must be paid by landlords who decide to get out of the rental business. The law, which took effect in June, requires […]
  • GOP governor: Obamacare has made ‘real improvements in people’s lives’

    Phil
    21 Oct 2014 | 5:25 pm
    Once in a great while, a politician will slip and accidentally tell the truth. Take Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R), for example, who inadvertently praised the Affordable Care Act. “Repeal and replace” has been a Republican mantra for nearly as long as Obamacare has been in existence. Yet one of the GOP’s rumored 2016 front-runners […]

    sfcitizen
    24 Oct 2014 | 2:02 pm
    TweetWell, first off, I don’t know where the question comes from. Is it about stuff like the hammer attack and the “inefficient route” thing from LA? Prolly. And, IMO, it’s not even a sincere question. Hey, how about this instead? “Should women consider uninstalling Uber?” Something like that would have a better chance of NOT being dismissed as a straw dog. Anyway, I’ll bet you that there are some PR people at UBER who might not exactly approve of this straw dog headline. Having said that, I know what the answer is, without even looking at the bit,…
  • How the San Francisco Giants are LYING When They Say “Ticket Scalping is Illegal” in San Francisco

    TweetC’mon focus, look at the sign, as seen this morning by Stanley Roberts of People Behaving Badly and KRON-TV:  Now it could be that this is what the San Francisco Giants organization wishes Police Code Section 869 would say, but this aint what it says. Comes now SF Weekly writer Joe Eskenazi: “…according to the police code cited on the sign (Good Ol’ No. 869) scalping is not strictly illegal: This is a code that prohibits folks from selling wares on the street without a peddlers’ permit. This means folks who sell their tickets online or out of their homes…

And what’s up with “TDI Motors?” What’s its relationship with Green Car Co of Washington State? Is this old wine in new bottles? IDK, but mmmm… And what’s the relationship with Volkswagen?

  • City Lights Theater Company calls a ‘Truce’

    Monica Turner
    24 Oct 2014 | 1:59 pm
    A hundred years ago on the battlefields of France, World War I soldiers on both sides of the lines set down their weapons in an impromptu Christmas ceasefire. They shared handshakes, cigarettes, rations, and soccer games. They sang carols together. Now a World Premiere play by two local playwrights celebrates this historic—and heartbreakingly brief—episode of peace, while offering the age-old holiday wish of peace on Earth. Truce: A Christmas Wish from the Great War, written by Kit Wilder & Jeffrey Bracco and directed by Wilder, runs later next month at City Lights Theater COmpany in…

  • Something different on ‘The 39 Steps’

    Cy Ashley Webb
    20 Oct 2014 | 7:55 am
    Just seven years ago, The 39 Steps opened in the US, before garnering a passel of awards. However, if you’re looking for the noir Hitchcock thriller, look elsewhere. This production at Hillbarn Theatre is rich in the over-the-top British humor of Monty Python, fast-paced enough to make all our inner ADD children run rampant. Translating that energy to a small stage is no mean feat and in that respect, the new Hillbarn production has a lot going for it. Mae Matoe’s costumes capture the best of the time perfectly, with an instantly recognizable style that naturally embraces the period’s…

  • Die Mommie Die!

    Clinton Stark
    15 Oct 2014 | 9:45 am
    Who needs the conventional when you have San Francisco? Those reluctant to sit through just another play or yet another musical ought to dial up New Conservatory Theatre Center. My first visit to the space (home to two theaters in a gorgeous building at 25 Van Ness) was nothing short of memorable. Can you believe they did that? Said that? Flaunted that (with utmost zeal)? Die Mommie Die!, written by Charles Busch and first brought to the stage in 2007, is tailor made for this city. A satirical send-up to the divas of Hollywood’s golden era, it oozes camp, sexuality, and outrageousness.
