A man who spent 30 years hiding behind branches and scaring tourists at Fisherman’s Wharf, has died. His family told KTVU that Gregory Jacobs died of heart failure over the weekend. Have you ever had a run-in with the Bushman?

Pour one out for the Bushman.
Man who scares people for a living dies of a heart attack #irony
We actually DID have a run in with the Bushman when we were up north for new year’s! Had no idea he was so legendary. RIP Bushman, you really scared the shit out of some Japanese tourists and it made me laugh.

Racist Chants From The Crowd Brought This Soccer Star To Tears | Political Blind Spot
Mario Balotelli, the star striker for the Italian soccer club AC Milan was brought to tears during an away game at Napoli on Saturday. Reports from many of those in attendance say that his reaction was due to racist chants directed at him by huge sections of the crowd.
He’s fucking Italian. Look at his name. Fuck those racist fucks. Dagos and wops stick together NO MATTER WHAT. I got yr back, Mario.
Or maybe not:
An understandably horrified Napoli were forced to issue a statement on the matter:
"In relation to some of the arguments that appeared on Facebook in which it was claimed that Mario Balotelli cried at the stadium [on Saturday] because of alleged racist chants against him, Napoli points out that, like every one in the stadium could see, there were no racist chants towards him, just as there have never been any racist chants towards anyone at the San Paolo.”
Anyone with even a basic knowledge of Italian football would have been skeptical about allegations of Napoli supporters engaging in racial abuse, let alone towards Balotelli. Indeed, on the morning of the game, the 23-year-old Azzurri forward had been mobbed by both Milan fans and local Neapolitans while taking a walk in the city with team-mate Adel Taarabt.
That some journalists therefore elected to pass these wholly unverified reports on to their followers is both staggering and dreadfully irresponsible. That some huge media outlets then chose to publish stories on unsubstantiated claims is utterly shameful.

If you remember the one on the left, the one on the right is not going to make you feel particularly spry or vibrant.
I was just reading a review today of the debut album by a New York band called Drowners (Suede reference) who apparently sound like first album Strokes & Arctic Monkeys which actually sounds right up my alley but then I did the math (never ever do the math) and the lead singer guy is only 25 which means he was born in 1988 and he named his band after a Suede song that came out when he was FOUR and the Strokes were big when he was 13 and that’s when I clicked close tab.

Here’s a Throwback Thursday salute to former Dodger Greg Maddux on his induction into baseball’s Hall of Fame. Pretty awesome that the one trip me and @daniel_ryder took to SF to see the Dodgers had him starting. http://instagram.com/p/i9rJyMyeBj/
