How's That Knee Feeling? 

Wednesday, Nov 12 2008
It sounds so upstanding: San Francisco's Run and Walk for the Hungry 5K and Mile benefits the San Francisco Food Bank. 'Tis the season to help people out even more than usual, it's true. So, nominally, the event is "for a good cause." But maybe you know some runners personally? If so, you have long suspected that they don't really care. They just want to run, it's all they think about and they'll do anything to get their fix. You can see the thoughts practically flashing across their foreheads like an LED sign: "Must ... run. Not ... hamster ... but ... must ... run." The rest of us should have sympathy for our addled friends and neighbors. They can't help themselves. But here’s how you can: Ask for their pledge form and donate some money.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
