Nope, but there are a lot of Giants fans in Dixon!

Yes! Fear the BEARD lol!

Bobby, I think a couple comments were lost from this article when the site changed to the new designRead More last night. Hopefully they'll come back.

Thank you Rob for stepping up once again to help Benicia High Sports!
Mariessa Deltorchio May 10, 2013 at 02:11 pm
Great job by all the players who worked the event. Great job to the community of Benicia whoRead More supported the event. Go Panthers!!
Bil Paul May 2, 2013 at 04:18 pm
Since we want to sanitize the race as much as possible and remove any public concern about bombings,Read More we must take the name "Breakers" out of Bay to Breakers. "Breakers" could imply the possibility of someone getting hurt.
Jonathan Koolpe May 2, 2013 at 07:01 pm
Truly, the participants should boycott the race over this asinine backpack ban. I'm not a runner,Read More but I would do so if I had previously had plans to attend this event. But I already boycott doing any business in SF over the unconstitutional red light cameras and the OUTRAGEOUS fines that they have imposed for these pernicious, non-human devices so I guess this is just another reason to not visit SF.
Roberto May 3, 2013 at 01:52 pm
Not a problem, go with pressure cookers! Add a couple back straps and you have a waterproofRead More container that also serves as an ice chest for some snacks, and that cold beer after the race.
David February 16, 2013 at 10:11 pm
I remember the varsity had to play a playoff game at the middle school in 1999, and lost in the lastRead More minute. Don't remember the reason behind it though.
Babaloo February 18, 2013 at 08:21 pm
Ok foolishness. First of all the financial ramifications of changing the dance would be "tooRead More much to overcome". You are going to tell a bunch of teenage girls who just had their make up done, hair and Nails that the dance that they were looking forward to would be cancelled postponed due to a " basketball game " ? Really . You obvioy don't have a daughter . Plus wait till your wife chimes in. The basketball season will survive another day . Enjoy the extra practice time. You will need it. Plus do you really have that many fans ? Besides the parents ? Your not that good to be compared to Baseball ( even though they had a huge let down in the playoffs because they don't play anybody during the season and coast ) . Or Foitball . Don't get me started on that one . So get a few winning seasons and stop whining. Your not the best of the best, your from or near Benicia .
Babaloo February 19, 2013 at 01:31 am
So they won.. Packed house .. So I guess the dance had nothing to do with it huh ,,,

If I were a Raider's Fan, I would... it sounds like a good deal. Although, as CJ stated, I'd beRead More concerned about increased crime. I remember a pre-season game with the Niners vs. the Raiders and there were a lot of incidents -- I said never again!
Born and Raised February 8, 2013 at 04:17 pm
That's funny I was going to say the same thing about a lot of 49r fans. However, football fans ofRead More just about any team have that element whether you want to recognize it or not. I'll be going to the Raiders games as much as I can this year because of the access to BART.

It's is VERY hard to get into the Super Bowl in the first place. So the idea that the 49ers areRead More going to definitely get back there next year is wishful thinking at this point. It's unlikely, but I hope they do!
Palomar Parkman February 5, 2013 at 12:39 pm
The game was very entertaining for fans of both teams. That is why you watch. The 49ers played likeRead More a young team. Flashes of brilliance and moments of stupidity. The non-calls by the refs changed the ebb and flow. Their performance was pathetic and that is supposed to be the 'best' ref crew the NFL has to offer. Bad calls and non-calls never even out. I expect to see the game played by the rules. I am not sure what the ultimate outcome would have been if it was properly officiated but it most definitely would not have been the same game I watched. What a disgraceful display by the NFL on their biggest stage.
P February 5, 2013 at 03:55 pm
Palomar, Well said comment! There should have been an early pass-interference call on the 49ers asRead More well. If the refs had been making calls in the early game, players would have had to play by the rules throughout. Instead they let there be numerous late whistles and late hits (where one guy had the runner stopped with a tackle and then other guys were allowed to hit him--very physically dangerous and with game-changing possibilities of injuries and fumbles) and also over aggressive shoving/fighting after the point (mostly started by the Ravens). I thought the officiating was poor and changed the nature of the game. Wasn't this almost the fewest penalty calls that these teams have EVER had? (I'd like to hear those statistics.) Did these teams change that much from their previous season play that they now weren't doing penalties? I doubt it.
Trisha Bowler February 3, 2013 at 01:46 pm
I re read the above article and didn't see a channel number. All I saw was CBS. Don't know whereRead More you live but the title of this page is called "Diamond Bar-Walnut" Patch and here CBS is located on Channel 2. You were rude to the editor!
ATC February 3, 2013 at 02:41 pm
Actually, Trisha, you are wrong about the title. This article is posted on multiple Patch pages. I'mRead More looking at it under the Banning-Beaumont Patch. I also assume that when Peter posted, the article DID have a channel #, which was removed after his post. It wasn't rude, it was simply pointing out a discrepancy in the article, which was then corrected. Thanks, Peter, for pointing that out to the editors.
terry ragland February 9, 2013 at 04:30 am
Maybe next superbowl they can put on a show with people thet have talent except a few dog's shackingRead More there huge ass's and they are not even that hot, and that's the best they have to offer, sad and sorry !!!!!
Jack Rux January 24, 2013 at 04:04 pm
Thanks Kristofer. I have feeling this will be a really good Super Bowl. The key is for the playersRead More of both teams not to get caught up in all the hoopla. A line from one of my favorite country songs "Come From the Heart" sums up what's needed: "You gotta dance like nobody's watching." Even if you there are billions. And I think the 49ers will do that enough to win.
Dan Perez January 29, 2013 at 02:37 am
My wish is that some (ok, a lot) of the commercialization be taken out of the superbowl. It can beRead More sickening. Too many time outs; long ones that can mess up momentum. I am very impressed with Jim Harbaugh's coaching. With the exception of the Seattle game, he was pretty awesome this year.
Albert Rubio January 29, 2013 at 04:03 am
The NFL is a business after all.
Scott Burford January 20, 2013 at 01:07 am
Kenny, can you read, or did an equally illiterate person read my post to you just now? Where was IRead More describing a benefit to Benicia? You are apparently, like Jason, so concerned about where the students reside that you are jumping to conclusions about my point of view on this issue. Truth is, you have no idea what my point of view actually is, since you have already jumped too far ahead and drawn your own false conclusions. One more thing, you need to use Google and learn how schools generate revenue. Study hard, and maybe you'll be on the road to understanding why the BUSD opens its doors to students from outside its city limits.
"The Black Panther of Poetry" January 20, 2013 at 01:08 am
Please Patch editors, stop this racist buffoon Kenny!!! You people seem to be at the ready when IRead More offer my, sometimes very aggressive rebuttals. DELETE THIS FOOL NOW!!! Do it now, you would have done it for "Before caught doping, Lance Armstrong"!!! Kenny their are hundreds of family members that live in Vallejo who is in the Armed Services dying and fighting so that you can spout out how much you hate them and their children!!
"The Black Panther of Poetry" January 20, 2013 at 01:10 am
Cody Kitaura, why are you allowing these racist to spew hatred when you and PATCH are always at theRead More ready to delete my comments? Why? Especially on the eve of Martin Luther King Jr. Day!!

That's how Fans roll!
Richard Bortolazzo January 19, 2013 at 12:18 pm

Robert Livesay January 19, 2013 at 02:03 pm
Sure does produce a lot of revenue and with that comes sales tax dollars. Not bad
Beate Brühl January 18, 2013 at 02:27 am
"Reality Check" needs a reality check: what does Oprah's interview with Lance ArmstrongRead More have to do with "military service", and AR 15s? She's a business woman and entertainer.
John Herby Hancock January 18, 2013 at 03:40 pm
Why did it have to be Oprah doing the interview. Now I'll never know....I refuse to watch that hag!
"The Black Panther of Poetry" January 18, 2013 at 08:17 pm
I just saw Mr. Cheater himself, Lance Armstrong on Oprah and boy this time he was really eatingRead More "CROWE"!!! Maybe he can contact Rapper Snoop dog and cut a song called "Sippin on Schwinn and Juice" With his mind on his money and his money on his mind!!
Eric Dee January 11, 2013 at 05:17 pm
PJM, this is a free enterprise system and as far as I know, no US laws have been broken. The realRead More issue here is as I and now others have mentioned, want the youth of our country following the lead of these players who have chosen to play outside the lines of the game. I only use the NFL seemed like and I still think it is as did MLB in the recent HOF voting results begin setting the bar for future players. I do not care if one has more legal liability than the other. One good example might be the labeling of cigarette packaging with the warning health labels..... now do you see, it really doesn't matter how it happens, just as the Surgeon General's warning is to try to prevent smoking and inherent damage that may occur, but it also in a sense allows the tobacco companies some if very limited liability from Suites of the legal variety. It's all good in my book, but not the use of Steroids in MLB!
None January 11, 2013 at 06:05 pm
When I see Major League Baseball, the NFL, the AFL, the NBA, the NHL and the NCAA publish andRead More enforce a real drug policy, I will believe someone has become serious about this issue. In the meantime I see a lot of posturing and worthless statements but little to no action. If we want to see our kids idolize people who use and condone the use of drugs, that is what we have now. It’s a sad commentary on what we have grown to accept.
jon April 5, 2013 at 03:44 pm
Cheaters should be hung!!!! Not famed .how can someone lie to the world for years and think they areRead More H.O.F ...joke .....makes me sick as a fan of baseball for 25. Years ..and i was watching a lie most of the time...
Jack Tono January 4, 2013 at 11:20 pm
As long as they get someone else in that can recruit.
Tom Kirkbride January 5, 2013 at 08:17 am
De La Salle will continue to thrive. Coach Lad has schooled his successor well(14 years); over 30Read More players return from 2012; the jv and frosh teams lost only two games total. And Lad remains present for advice/council.
Robert Rothgery January 5, 2013 at 03:24 pm
This transition has been long anticipated and is a product of strategic planning and infrastructureRead More development that is entirely consistent with the team's more observable disciplines on the playing field. To understand the DLS program you must realize that Lad guides his team from a foundation of discipline, training and ethic, but without the control and go-fer management so common in prep athletics. It produces a different behavior - one where commitment and community trump performance induced by conformity and outward obligation. Robert Ladouceur's presence is not an irreplaceable blip in history, but simply another chapter in a successful program that has been running for over three hundred years.
