Well, this didn't make it to our Fox-fueled TV screens yesterday: Rap star/walking tattoo warning Lil Wayne was on hand at AT&T Park to sing -- we use that term loosely -- "Take Me Out to the Ball Game." Yes, and with enthusiasm! Which raises several questions:

1. Lil Wayne is a Giants fan? (He's decked out in the team gear in this video we've got for you.)

2. Lil Wayne can sing? (Hint: No AutoTune appeared to be on hand at AT&T Park yesterday.)

3. Whom can we expect to surprise us at tonight's NCLS Game 7? (If you know, leave us a hint in the comments, please.)

Meanwhile, here's Weezy gettin' all affectionate for our boys in the orange and black:

Apparently this came about because Weezy and the Giants' Ryan Theriot are old pals from Louisiana. But as for Theriot's take on the performance itself? "Well, I heard it," Theriot said, according to Yahoo's Big League Sports blog. "We're going to have to talk about the melody just a touch, a little bit. Know what I mean? His teeth looked good." -- @iPORT

  • Permanent Residents

    San Francisco is not just skin deep to these folks — it's a permanent resident of their bodies and souls. They may be scattered far and wide — everywhere from Bernal Heights to Brooklyn, El Paso, Tokyo, and beyond — but the one thing these self-defined San Franciscans all share is a deep commitment to the city by the Bay.
