We have an off-day from pie-antics, so we're going to play a fun game where we try to come up with a solution to a problem. I'll set the parameters and you shoot out possible answers and...

Hunter shows off his new baby sister and A's fan, Adelaide Elisabeth Headley (aka Baby Stranger). She was born May 3rd, 11:28pm, at 20 inches long and 6lbs 15.8oz. She came quick into the world--much faster than anticipated, and as a result was born enroute to the hospital in the back of the ambulance, somewhere near the intersection of Washington and McDowell Blvd in Petaluma. After a little more than 12 hours in the hospital, both she and mommy were discharged and relaxing comfortably at home. We look forward to showing her off at A's games and tailgates this summer.

DLD 07 08 10 - Pop Goes the Weasel

Verizon Coliseum?


Rumor is that Verizon is discussing five year naming rights for the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum. The article says that the last deal ran out in 2007, but I'm pretty sure it ran out in September of 2008.

For those of you who BART to work and to games, they have reached an agreement with the unions in the labor dispute. It still needs to be ratified by the members of the Unions before it becomes official.
