Everything that could be said about the World Series has pretty much been said. The Giants have done no wrong, they're in a commanding spot, but things can change quickly.

So we feel entitled to bring up that, yes, Vlad Guerrero is a dead ringer for Coolio these days. It had to be done.

Here's the World Series look-alikes edition: 

How about Texas Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux ... and Family Ties actor Michael Gross (in his turn as a gun nut in Tremors)?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
