Ian's SBN Bookmarklets (change look/feel)

I started this project a while back, then SBN changed up their CSS and I got annoyed. The gist is this. SBN has great bloggers, but their user experience design sometimes leaves a few things to be...


FIFA World Cup, McCoven Freakout Edition (+meetups)

Once every four years, we get to pretend we care as much about futbol/soccer as Europeans do. Maybe this year, we'll get past Ghana too. Speaking of which, there's a game coming up... several...


McCovens playing Elder Scrolls Online - yes - but who?

I just bought a copy of Elder Scrolls Online and set up an account as @isarmstrong (character name Aeovix). I know we have a bunch of gamers who are also McCovens. Since the Giants are basically...


Cars of McCovey Chronicles

Because most of us care more about our cars than our faces. Most of us. I do not look like Joffrey, dammit, that was just one photo and shut your face a lot. Cars, yes. Post your car(s). Filler....


A UX-based solution for Grant's desire to self-police our on-topicness

It's almost 1am and I just got around to reading Grant's post on the State of the McCovey Chronicles from March 12h, a whole 36 hours ago! I'm practically breaking here. I would add to the list...

Evaluating SF's Pitchers by RE24 Average

I've been giving a lot of thought to the whole question of who the Giants keep when Lopez meets Affeldt in the Thunderdome this winter (though the Mota vs Zito fight also looks like a good show). W...


The Giants 2011 Season, a One Image Summary

This requires no further comment on my part. Screenshot captured 9/24/2011 That said, I need to continue writing until I hit 75 words. I wonder if Grant ever feels like this? I wonder if that's...


What are the downsides? Send a message to slumping vets.

It’s been an awful month. I don’t need to tell you that if you are reading this website. The only reason San Francisco is even within striking distance of the West is that Arizona isn’t a...


Philadelphia Really Hates Cody Ross

No, as in REALLY hates him... in fact if you check out The Good Phight any time they play the Giants, it doesn't take long before you are up to your knees in spittle. They don't have the number of...
