Food Review: The AT&T Park Porcini Doughnut

Ah, AT&T Park. To the lesser-minded, this is simply the San Francisco gem that houses a mediocre relief staff and the robot that replaced Buster Posey after “the slide” , but those who are truly in the know can see the park for what it is– a cornucopia of overpriced culinary delights. Yes, there’s plenty to indulge in at the ballpark, so much so that the scoreboard will feature clips…

The True History of the “Based God Curse”

July 4, 2016

  You may have heard the good news– Kevin Durant has signed with the Warriors, and Lil B has lifted the curse! But many don’t know the true backstory behind the Based God curse. It is a tale that has been lost and found, twisted and turned, and never quite fully understood. Until now. To start, let’s establish the background. Kevin Durant is one of the best small forwards in…


Sharks Finish Dissapointing New York Weekend

October 20, 2015

By: Sean Vernon Follow @sean_of_basta The Sharks dropped two of their three road games last weekend as they learned that other teams can score too. Things started off well enough – the Sharks handed New Jersey yet another loss, this time in the shootout. However, the 2-1 victory served to foreshadow potential offensive woes that seemed to appear in the next two games. Not wanting to burn out Martin Jones,…


Sharks Continue to Roll

October 13, 2015

By: Sean Vernon The San Jose Sharks continue to exceed expectations, winning their third straight to start the season with a 5-0 victory over the Ovechkin-less Washington Capitals. Everything seems to be going well for the Sharks so far. Martin Jones has let in only one goal in three games, and has not allowed any since the season opener. On the offensive side of things, the Sharks have been playing…


THE SLIDE – A Full Overview

October 11, 2015

The Play. The Catch. For years, incredible sports moments have been immortalized, becoming fantastical memories passed down from father to son. Who could forget when Willie Mays made that incredible grab in the bowels of the Polo Grounds to keep the Indians from claiming the lead all those years ago? Or when the Cal Bears decided to play rough with the Stanford Band? Clearly, only the most incredible moments in sports history…


Raffi Torres Releases Apologetic Statement

Raffi Torres in his natural habitat.
October 8, 2015

Raffi Torres’ lawyer has, presumably, written and released a statement apologizing for Torres’ borderline-assault of Jakob Silfverberg in a meaningless preseason game. See the hit here. Torres expressed disappointment with himself in the brief statement, a disappointment that must have been absent from his mind as he strode towards Silfverberg before the hit. His humanity shown through, however, in his copy-paste relief of not having injured the Ducks forward. In…


Sharks Take Opener Over Kings

October 8, 2015

Despite the noticeable absence of Raffi Torres, the Sharks sailed to only their third victory over the Kings since their elimination from the 2014 playoffs. This time, it was a 5-1 victory, made possible only by Joonas Donskoi’s early-third period ‘goal’ that ensured the Sharks would finally go up 4 on the Kings. Speaking of the Kings, they must not have heard José Mourinho, because they let loose this second-period…


Giants Salvage Series Split in 3-2 Comeback Win

May 10, 2015

By: Sean Vernon The Giants gave their mothers something to cheer about with today’s 3-2 victory over the Miami Marlins, capped off with a 9th-inning two-run comeback that gave closer Santiago Casilla his fourth win of the season. Starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong found himself in a scary spot in the fourth when Dee Gordon’s seventh double of the season nearly scored Mat Latos. (Gordon’s average now stands at .439, easily…


Sharks 3-1 Win Over Anaheim- Recap and Analysis

September 28, 2014

The Sharks coasted to a definitive, 3-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks today in a preseason game that was, from the first minute to the last, a classically hostile matchup between the two rivals. While their offense lacked throughout the game, the Ducks racked up totals in hits (43) and penalty minutes (31) as almost every player took an enforcing role at some point. As early as 2 minutes into…
