National audience to decide with bemused indefference whether Oregon or Stanford is the more annoying institution Thursday

No. 3 Oregon and no. 5 Stanford face off on Thursday night football's nightcap (well after BCS Computer has passed out in front of the Daily Show with a half-empty ice cream bowl in his lap). Bragging rights for the only geographic half of the Pac-12 that matters as well as a potential bid to represent *yawn* at the...

75 reasons Giants fans will miss Barry Zito

The Giants Sunday declined their 2014 club option for left-hander Barry Zito. By Andrew Pridgen The club is still on the hook for a $7 million buyout instead of an $18 million salary next season.

World Series Game 2 recap: The unbearable joyless now of the Fox broadcast team

You know the once-in-awhile notion that has something to do with the three-act play of morality and mortality and how, no matter what you come up with: family, friends, manufactured goods, glances on a bus, a career, the ghosts of relationships and the right to a few more mistakes but not those mistakes ...the whole whatever-now-is-is-just-never-going-to-be-enough ...thing?

World Series Game 1 recap

The idea was to do a drinking game with one of my buddies who lives in Mass.
