San Francisco Giants Heart Bruce Lee

Posted By on Thu, Feb 9, 2012 at 7:50 AM


On Sept. 4, you might notice lots of inappropriate chicken-like kung-fu

noises in the vicinity of AT&T Park. In honor of the Year of the

Dragon, the San Francisco Giants are hosting Bruce Lee night, which

includes, among many other treats, your free Bruce bobblehead.


a Bruce Lee night was kind of a no-brainer for the Giants. Aside from the

fact that Lee was a kick-ass martial arts guru, he's also a San Francisco native. 

"We spread the idea, and people really liked it," said Faham Zakariaei, director of special ticket events. "So we reached our to Bruce Lee Enterprises, and they were all for it."

Lee's wife and daughter will make an appearance that night, which will also include some pregame martial arts demonstrations on the field. "Based off the Chinese American population in San Francisco, and the marital arts students, we expect 4,000 to 5,000 specific clients to come out for that day," Zakariaei said.

Now for the question you are all wondering: What position would Lee play if he had been on the Giants?

"Probably the closer, because he tends to come in and save the day," Zakariaei said.

  • 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.'"
