  1. Candlestick does not offer tours. Also, you are ten minutes from SFO, but in which direction? South, West, or North? Reason being is that BART is the main regional mass transit system. MUNI is for the city/county of San Francisco, SamTrans is for San Mateo County, where the airport is, and CalTrain is the regional train system which can get you from where you may be staying into the city as opposed to BART. Uhhh... good question. I'm not sure, my friend has the room booked and he told me I can access BART from nearby, but now you have me questioning him lol. I'm stoked for the A's, the prices seem almost too good to be true for great seats. Any must eat places at either Stadium or within the city of San Fran?
  2. That's really good to know! Is it worth it to go on a stadium tour of Candlestick Park?
  3. I'll be crashing at a hotel that's apparently 10 minutes from the airport... so I'm not sure if it's easy or possible to take BART from there to the park, but I'll be looking into it. I really have not yet had the chance to scope the geography of the area but I've been told I'll need to take BART in order to get downtown and that it's a 30 minute ride? Sound about right? I was REALLY hoping to see a Sharks' game, but, I'm 99% certain the pre-season games won't be occurring so I'm not worrying about that.
  4. Once again, I have the opportunity to knock two more ballparks off my MLB list and I couldn't be more excited! I've never been to Northern California before (only the South and primarily around LA) and really have no idea what I'm getting into. I'm hoping that some of you may have some advice on these parks, what's around them and where I should be looking to get seats to provide the best experience (like behind home plate at PNC... which was fantastic!). Additionally, I'd enjoy hearing about some must visit places in San Fran, San Jose and possibly Oakland... even though I don't intend on spending much time in the latter. Thanks in advance for any help feedback you can provide!
  5. Forgot about this gem: It isn't complete without an awesome video! http://vimeo.com/23090737
  6. Yup, all to get back at the Canucks. http://www.thestar.com/news/article/1106227--justin-bieber-maple-leafs-make-an-8-year-old-s-dream-come-true And for further reading: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/sports/hockey/leafs-beat/leafs-defenceman-draws-inspiration-from-justin-bieber/article2280820/ - Jake Gardiner is a huge Biebs fan, too.
  7. One of my favourites and local talents Will Arnett is a huge Leafs' fan, as per various articles I've read over the years and this screen cap from an episode of "Up All Night." I don't think I need to mention anything about Mike Myers being the biggest fan of them all... (side note... I happened to be at this game and they were thanking Myers' after a summer of shooting "The Love Guru." If only they knew how much it would suck...)
  8. As someone who works for an international Apparel company, I can admit to you, that 90% of the time, Reebok doesn't make shirts. A manufacturer of blanks makes those shirts, with "tear away" tagging, and then a Heat Transfer Reebok neck label is heat pressed onto the blank... It seems what you have is simply Reebok's artwork printed on a Gilden blank, that wasn't appropriately tagged and labeled. It's almost certainly not a knock off, just simply, as already mentioned one that didn't make it through the correct process... Depending on the turnaround they won't always remove the original tag. Doesn't mean his shirt is a fake, it means they REALLY rushed the shirt to get it out to retail.
  9. They've done the same with Stnaley Cup Champions' shirts... I *think* they license out the printing of the shirts to other companies in order to produce them quickly and distribute them as fast and to as many places as possible. I think my '07 Ducks is from something LEE, '08 Wings is Gildan and I think the rest are Reebok... I'll have to check, though.
  10. Nash61 found the best way to sum it up with this:
  11. Surprised no one has mentioned this yet, but apparently Tim Thomas skipped the Bruins' trip to the White House to meet the President. According to the team, he will release a statement regarding why he didn't attend later today on his Facebook page. "Everybody has their own opinions and political beliefs and he chose not to join us," Bruins president Cam Neely told ESPN. http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/2012/01/23/obama_bruins/
  12. 1942 Stanley Cup Finals rematch, anyone? (editor's note: Detroit led the series 3-0, only to lose 4-3 and Stanley to Toronto)
  13. My problem with it is that stupid floating bear head and the just thrown on BRUINS wordmark on the shoulders. What would be perfect is: Just a big, bold 'B' on the front of the jersey. Maybe a thin white outline with a black outline around that. Have the Spoked 'B' on the shoulders, or, nothing at all. That would have improved this jersey 10-fold.
  14. Well, I gotta say that I'm quite the fan of Kijiji now. Not only was I lucky enough to find a Bruins' third listed on there, but it only cost me $40 for one that had never been worn. The guy said that his gf's father had won it at some fundraiser and since they didn't know any Bruins' fans (all Leafs!) he though it would be worth selling. I have to say, I'm quite excited to be wearing this at the February 25th Sens/Bruins game. Keep and eye out for Braden and I sitting at the glass in section 109A (from broadcast angle, that's the right corner). Thanks again for your help guys, I would never have thought to check out Kijiji or Craiglist had it not been mentioned.
  15. Geez Charger, you have quite the rack! (/rimshot) I've only got about 4 or 5 of my jerseys hanging up, the rest are in bins or delegated to 'shinny' (with matching socks, of course!). I think I've found a poohbear on Kijiji, just figure out a time/place to do the deal. The pic shows it's a large with tags attached, so I hope it's in mint condition for $40, which seems to be a fair price. I'll probably take photos of my jerseys at some point, just trying to figure out the best way to photograph them. They aren't game used, but some are a little 'unique' if I don't say so myself. Thanks again for the help guys, hopefully I'm able to snag this jersey tomorrow!
  16. I tried Kijiji and found two hits... just msg'd them and I hope the jerseys are still for sale. One's a Large yellow poohbear which I'd gladly buy for the $30 they're offering it for. The other doesn't show the size and is $40... so if it's an M or L I'll look to snag them.
  17. Hmmm... I'll have to take a look at what I'm willing to part with but that's an option. I'll get back to you soon!
  18. Bah!! I found a semi-pro on auction starting at $50 but he won't ship to Canada. Oh well. At this point, I'd also wear a Kessel Bruins' jersey, but I can't seem to find any clearance ones at the moment. I've found some tees, however, but it isn't the same as a jersey. Sighhh.
  19. Just the novelty of it. I'll be right at the glass so what better than to be wearing an ugly as sin jersey? I'm refraining from wearing a Leafs' jersey this time... and don't want to go in anything completely random, either.
  20. As I'm headed to Ottawa to watch the big, bad Bruins take on the over-achieving Ottawa Senators' in late February, I'm hoping to watch the game in a nice Bruins jersey. However, although I own over 50 of them right now, not one represents Beantown. I'm now determined to get my hands on the yellow Poohbear jersey just because I think it would be awesome to own. However, they don't seem to be readily available for such a garish item. I only found a few listed on Ebay and I don't feel like spending close to $200 for a pro when I really only want it as a one-off item, or one that I can later wear in shinny. Does anyone either have one they are willing to sell (size M or L) or know of a good site that would carry this jersey, or the complimenting home/away ones for a decent price? Tried doing a quick Google search but only came across some counterfeit sites, which I will never touch. Any help would be appreciated, I will be disappointed to attend this game in anything but a garish yellow jersey!
  21. Couldn't get the home... they were out of sizes when I ordered... but I now own an Alternate and Road! Hurrah!
  22. Also got mine in the mail yesterday too! Mine just arrived... all I've got to say is that I never expected to ever own anything Islanders. Now I need to take a cold, cold shower.
  23. Fingers crossed for Detroit/Toronto in Michigan! Just think of how busy Windsor will get because no one would want to stay south of the boarder lol.
