Amazing Base Jump Footage

Experience Zero Gravity, a new video from InfinityList.com, shows a bunch of people base jumping from as high as 6000 feet in Norway, Switzerland and France.

I really like this new trend of GoPro footage showing people what they could never experience.

Manny Being Manny - Arrested

Manny Ramirez, who retired from major league baseball in April after testing positive for a banned substance, was arrested Monday at his Weston, Florida home, and charged with one count of domestic violence battery.

According to a Broward Sheriff’s Office arrest affidavit [pdf], Ramirez’s wife Juliana told an officer that the two were fighting in the master bedroom when Ramirez “struck her in the left side of her face causing her to hit her head against the headboard of the bed.”

Ramirez told the officer that he did not strike his wife, but rather grabbed her by the shoulders and “shrugged her,” causing her to hit her head.

This Giants Fan is Too Damn Cute

[thanks Robin.]

The Giants are World Series Champions!!!

WOO! At Long Last the Giants won their first title since 1954 by knocking off the Rangers in five. Renteria blasted a three-run shot off Cliff Lee, earning him the MVP.

The victory parade is scheduled to begin at 11am Wednesday morning, and will start at Montgomery and Washington. From there it will head southbound along Montgomery until it hits Market Street. At Market, it will turn west until it hits Civic Center Plaza.

Find more info on the parade on SF Gate.
