Is “The Beard” a Furry Fancier? SF Giants Pitcher dates Sasquatch!

One of this blog’s most popular posts asked whether San Francisco Giants pitcher Brian Wilson is gay and kinky. Click here. He’s been known to offer “sugar” to the mysterious leather-clad “Machine” and now he seems to be dating Sasquatch. Are they one in the same? The Beard and the Squatch showed up together for the ESPY Awards.  Is the bearded pitcher advocating furry sex for butch guys? Hey, there were furries (or “plushophiles”) at IML this year. That would be International Mr. Leather, not the Illinois Municipal League. I’m not saying having furries at a Leather event is a good thing or a bad thing…but it IS a thing!

Giants Closer Brian “The Beard” Wilson is Beef Bar Cover Bear!

One of this sites most popular posts asks: Leather or not? Is SF Giants star pitcher Brian Wilson kinky? Is The Beard gay? If he isn’t, he sure knows our codes! Now he is the poster bear for Beef Bar, a Bearracuda event happening at Truck. November 12th at Folsom and 15th in San Francisco. There will be shower bears…

More Sausage Racers

Our correspondent AidanAbroad blogged about Milwaukee’s strange tradition of Sausage Racing at Brewer’s games. Check it out here. His iPhone couldn’t get a good zoom, though. A quick trip around the internet solves that. Here are the sausages getting ready to…uhhh…race!

Sausage Race at the Milwaukee Brewers Game

I was introduced to a fascinating Milwaukee tradition today at the Brewers game – phallic food sports, i.e., the Sausage Race. In the 6th inning, people costumed as different kinds of sausage (brat, chorizo, hot dog, etc) race around the field. Today the chorizo won, despite his huge sombrero. The zoom on my iPhone wasn’t able to capture a great shot, but on the right you can see sausages racing around the field toward the finish line.


Tailgating Men.

Outside the Milwaukee Brewers postseason game this morning.


Grab some what?

Seeing this advertisement, with fit male baseball players’ crotches at eye level, beer was not the first kind of “bud” I thought they were suggesting that I grab. Nor did I think of “buddies.” A friend from Mendocino thought of green buds when he saw this. Quadruple entendre? Maybe even quintuple?

SF Giants make an “It Gets Better” video

The World Champion San Francisco Giants have made an “It Gets Better” video. For more videos and more information on the project, founded by columnist Dan Savage to give gay kids a vision of life beyond high school, visit the website here. For more Giant charitable work, click here. If you’ve ever wondered about Brian Wilson’s edgy style, here. For sadly broken Buster, here, and for Timmy the Kid, here.

Broken Giant. Get Well, Buster!

It was a painful moment when Marlin Scott Cousins sealed Wednesday’s game against the San Francisco Giants by crashing into catcher Buster Posey at home plate. Buster’s fibula snapped and he’s out for the season. According to first baseman Aubrey Huff, the atmosphere around ATT park yesterday was grim. He told Sports Illustrated: “It felt like a morgue when you walked in here today.” The baby-faced catcher is a popular Giant, both on the team and with his fans. His wholesome looks contrast with some of his edgier team mates’ styles. More on that here and here. SI‘s Anne Killion writes: “He’s their square-jawed Captain America on a goofy cartoon-strip team.” That’s one way to put it! For the rest of that article, click here.

Timmy the Kid! Our Giants serially humiliate Oakland.

When he’s not in the ballpark SF Giant’s pitcher Tim Lincecum looks more like a slacky hipster kid than a world class athlete. All that changes on the mound. Timmy the Kid moves like a lanky jungle cat, all energy in reserve until he unleashes his fastball. Poetry in motion and even the floppy hippy hair works. Five nothing in career starts against the As, who have lost eight straight to the Giants. For John Sheas’s article in the San Francisco Chronicle, click here.

Kudos! SF Giants to make an “It Gets Better” Video

According to an SF Weekly article: “the team will make an iconic ‘It Gets Better’ video to encourage LGBT youth across the nation. The Giants will be the first professional sports team to join the spirited campaign aimed at curbing LGBT bullying and teen suicides.” Good for the Giants! Way to set the bar, boys.
