Everyone's mother warned them to wear clean underwear in case you suffered an accident and hospital workers were forced to strip your clothes off. Even at five years old, most kids know you've got bigger things to worry about if you're sans pantalones in the hospital -- but it's a decent nightmare scenario as they go.

Yet a Visitacion Valley man has gone one better.The resident of the 1200 block of Sunnydale frenetically flagged down a passing police officer on Friday evening while clad in only a towel and his own blood.

The victim told police he'd been taking a shower when he heard

someone knocking on the bathroom door. Thinking it was a family member,

he opened the door and was immediately overpowered by three violent


The interlopers beat and pistol-whipped the nude man, eventually making off with the luckless gent's car keys (and, presumably, his car).

    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.

    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.
