    What would the winter months be without fresh-baked apple pie? Three Babes Bakeshop makes a mean Classic Apple—the stuff of Thanksgiving dreams—with crisp, organic seasonal apples (Granny Smiths, Pippins, Gravensteins, or Pink Pearls) and a flaky, flavorful all-butter crust.

  • Giants appear to be runners up for Sandoval

    20 Nov 2014 | 11:54 pm
    With Pablo Sandoval visiting Boston this week, it caused quite a stir on the East Coast and has every media outlet predicting the free agent third basemen will land with the Red Sox.Now, the Giants are certainly not out of the running, but based on every indication being made from Pablo's camp and the Giants' behalf leads one to believe that the headlines are most likely true. The San Diego Padres have made a late push here as well, and although they're likely third in line behind Boston and San Francisco, their interest likely jacks up the price just a little bit. My guess is that whatever…
  • Giants focused on Sandoval, looking at LF

    Just as expected, in the two weeks of offseason there's been since the Giants won the World Series, their primary focus has been on retaining postseason machine, Pablo Sandoval. However, as they try diligently to persuade their incredibly popular third basemen into returning, they've also begun to ponder over some of the outfield options that are on the market.I don't think the market for Sandoval was quite as big as The Panda was anticipating, but apparently their is at least one other team who's interest is rivaling the Giants, and that is Boston Red Sox. He's scheduled to visit with Boston…

I think that was the big turn of the series, or at least I'm hoping it was. Had the Royals held on to win that…

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…

  • Patriots fans just love them some One Direction, study shows (Shutdown Corner)

    18 Nov 2014 | 9:27 am
    When they're not cheering on their team, New England Patriots fans are most likely to go see One Direction concerts as their football-alternative form of musical entertainment. So says a study by StubHub, via the Wall Street Journal , which tracked ticket-purchasing habits of fans from each of the NFL's fan bases. The online ticket broker studied data back to 2012 on the secondary market and cross-referenced it geographically with what musical acts each team's fans were most likely to purchase.

    17 Nov 2014 | 9:05 pm
    Maybe Peyton Manning needs to take a cue from Aaron Rodgers this week. Everyone might need to R-E-L-A-X on the Denver Broncos a bit.  In this quickly changing NFL, it would be surprising if a team didn’t have a bad loss on its record. The Arizona Cardinals are 9-1 and even they have a 21-point defeat, to Denver, on their resum é (albeit when they played a decent part of that game with third-string quarterback Logan Thomas). The Broncos’ 22-7 loss to the St. Louis Rams wasn’t good. It’s possible we look back on it as the game that cost the Broncos a first-round bye or the AFC West.

Focused on San Francisco, that is. The Redskins quarterback told the assembled media that he was “focused on San Francisco” nine different times during the press conference, refusing to elaborate on much of anything beyond the fact the he and his teammates are preparing to play the 49ers on Sunday.

    It wasn’t a banner day for Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III, as the San Francisco 49ers defense gave him fits. RGIII completed only 11 of 19 passes for 106 yards. He was a complete non-factor throughout the game. The 49ers pass rush, however, was a force to be reckoned with. They sacked RGIII five times. And the Redskins QB will certainly be feeling the hit that rookie LB Aaron Lynch put on him over the next few days...

It was a hit that would take down the strongest of men, just not Boldin. #459473646 / gettyimages.com The 49ers receiver took the hit and was able to pick up extra yards for a 29-yard gain that eventually set up the 49ers go ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Unfortunately, they did not get it, as the San Francisco 49ers to control of the game from essentially the opening start. Robert Griffin III was sacked on the second play from the line of scrimmage, as 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith beat rookie left tackle Morgan Moses to get to Griffin. Griffin then badly overthrew Andre Roberts on third down to force a quick three-and-out. It only took the 49ers five plays to answer the bell on offense, as quarterback…

    In remembrance of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, I am re-posting my original story from my November 2009 blog.The Day JFK DiedNovember 22, 1963, Yerington, Nevada     As a sophomore in high school I sat looking at the clock in my English class, when the principle’s voice came over the loud speaker. “We regret to inform you that President Kennedy has been assassinated. School is dismissed. Go home and be with your family.”My mouth dropped; I could not take my eyes off the speaker box that hung over the door. I numbly heard the gasps and cries of my…

    Too and ToToo sick tonight  Too sick to fightToo sick to be right  Too sick to make it to midnight.Too many broken dreams  Too many failed schemesToo many unheard screams  Too many of life’s extremes.Too is abundance, to is towards   Too is my circumference, to is like new cordsToo is heavy, to is free flight.Too will be laid down, to heaven I’ll go tonight.Chere L Brown, Fort Worth, TX, June 3, 2014

  • My Couch

    15 Jul 2012 | 9:24 am
    This is the day I spent all day doing nothing on my couch.Oh, I watched a biography on Jamie Foxx and another about John Ritter; I guess that was something.In my mind I stayed busy.I checked my email, read my Google Reader, viewed my Facebook, and watched a half dozen Ted Talks. At different intervals, exhausted from such mental excursion, I took two naps. The only times I left my couch were to go to the bathroom and to warm something in the microwave, which I ate while sitting on my couch. At times my couch is much like an astronaut’s pilot seat.It is very confining, but gives me an…

    Acro Net. Cirque du Soleil’s new show ‘KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities’ premiered at AT&T Park in San Francisco over the weekend. The Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities posters have been plastered in BART stations and Muni stops for weeks now – with buzz a-plenty surrounding the premiere of the new Cirque du Soliel. Artistic director Bruno Damagnac positively burbles with enthusiasm for this new venture, which marks the 30th anniversary of Cirque. “Kurios is a happy show,” he enthuses. “It treats the industrial period – the end of the 19th century, where…
  • Still loving Lucy (Review)

    It might be sacrilege, but the 95 minute (sans intermission) I Love Lucy: Live on Stage, which just opened at the Curran, works even better than the real thing. Part of the unintended magic of the grainy black and white 50’s and early ‘60’s sitcoms was that the technology was so primitive, we never lost sight these were real people. Just as Jackie Gleason was Ralph Cramden to millions of viewers, Lucille Ball was Lucy Ricardo. Lucy works because it leverages this strength. The original show seemed so vibrant, in part, because it was shot before a live studio audience. This on-stage…
  • Broadway Backstage: Chicago with John O’Hurley of Seinfeld (Video)

    Seinfeld brought the world no shortage of iconic characters. George who pursued life with “passionate mediocrity.” Elaine with her physical antics. Cosmo Kramer with the famous skid stop entrance. And, of course, Jerry Seinfeld himself with his everyday observations. But, many will never forget perhaps the quirkiest of all, J. Peterman. The catalog publishing magnate who had a penchant for disappearing into rain forests, and a fondness for riddlespeak, was played to pitch perfection by actor John O’Hurley. Recently many will recognize the Maine native from his numerous,…

    Matt Nathanson gets the crowd amped at the Live in the Vineyard music festival. It was all about the bass. Girls, we discovered, do chase boys. And word is there were plenty of cool kids. The second installment of this year’s Live in the Vineyard concert series wrapped Saturday night after Ingrid Michaelson (“Girls Chase Boys”) pumped up the energetic crowd at the Lincoln Theatre in Napa. By all accounts it was one of the strongest line-ups yet. Acts included Train, Ingrid Michaelson, Mat Kearney, Matt Nathanson, Meghan Trainor, Blue October, Echosmith, Marie Miller, Bea…
