Nobody is celebrating the Giants' double win like the orange-and-black-colored dogs and cats over at the San Francisco SPCA. The team's winning streak makes it all that more likely that these animals will find a loving home.

The shelter tells us they are giving away all animals with orange and black markings as a way to celebrate the Giants while also enticing folks to come down to the shelter and take one of these adorable animals off their hands.

The Giants pride promotion will continue until the last game is played (in other words, when the Giants win).

In addition, the staff over at the SPCA got into the competitive spirit and placed a bet with the Michigan Humane Society. If the Giants win -- and they will -- MHS will shell out $10 to go toward 10 SF SPCA adoptions. If the

Tigers win -- which they won't -- the SF shelter will do the same.


be talking some friendly smack about them on our Facebook page until the

Giants win and MHS has to cough up some dough," said Krista Maloney, spokeswoman for the SPCA.

Woof. (Translation: Go Giants!)

  • 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.'"
