Giants ace Tim Lincecum answering "fuck yeah!" on live TV when he was asked if he was ready to be doused in champagne was many things. Was it entertaining? Yes. Honest? Yes. Unprecedented -- Giants fans know better than to say yes.

What graying fan could forget Will Clark in 1987 caterwauling "Hey, what's happening? WOOOOOOO! We did it, that's goddamn right!"; "I love champagne -- lemme get rid of this gum!"; and, of course, "I went to all the fucking amateur ones, now we're going to the pros!" Yeah, that was on live TV too.

  • 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.'"
