Fear the Beard…How popular is the man with the baddest beard in baseball?

by Accidental Bear

San Francisco Giants‘ relief ace Brian Wilson will do a public autograph session at the end of the month.  How popular is the man with the baddest beard in baseball?

Popular enough, apparently, to sell a lot of autographs at $150-200 a pop.

Wilson, the three-time All-Star who is the modern era’s answer to Al “Mad Hungarian” Hrabosky, has agreed to sign at ManCave Sports in San Mateo August 31.  It’ll be his only private signing session of 2011.  The company says it expects tickets won’t last, despite what seems like a hefty price tag for a relief pitcher who isn’t dead.

“We are so honored and excited to have Brian Wilson at ManCave Memorabilia for our amazing customers,” says a company bulletin.  “Brian Wilson will be signing autographs at ManCave Memorabilia on Wed Aug 31st, 2011 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm. There will be no video cameras allowed but you may bring a camera to take photos of the event and Brian Wilson signing your item. We anticipate a major response.”

Prices range from $150 for an ordinary item like an 8×10 or baseball to $175 for a ‘premium’ item and $200 for art work.  Inscriptions are $40.

Bad Kitty Kitty , Bad Klepto Kitty ( caught on video)

by Accidental Bear

I am a big fan of the feline. I have 2 of my own that I’m extremely attached to ( i’ll cut you!). They like to hide piles of things including paper clips, pencils. dollars and scraps of paper under the kitchen rug. But this kitty named Dusty from the other side of the tracks, San Mateo, takes it to another level. Bad kitty kitty, those are undies not yours! You will NOT be coming over for kitty sleep over!

Extra! Cat Burglar Story Legitimized by NPR.org Users! (Yes there’s video)

I foolishly passed on this story a couple of days ago, only to find that it is now the most e-mailed web item on NPR.org.

So here ya go, everyone:

The famous KGO “cat burglar” video, about a San Mateo cat named Dusty who steals things.

And since I’m turning this into an enterprise story, here’s the original segment on Dusty from the show Animal Planet:
