Have you ever heard of Orville Veal? He has the greatest baseball name in the history of the game, according to The Awl. Ebenezer Beatin, Josh Booty, John Dickshot all made it to the list. Darryl Strawberry made the list, as did Milton Bradley. But where is Dizzy Dean? Or Coco Crisp?

Harry Pyle made it in at 17. That is a shitty/great name.

H&M Pollution

Have you ever wondered where your clothes are coming from? We shop at thrift stores, swap meets, and retail stores, but we never really question the history of where our favorite jacket was manufactured. Apparently pollution is more apparent than we think. We might actually be wearing socks that were dipped in acid.

Friend to both Upper Playground and The Citrus Report, Chris Cosentino, had the restaurant in which he is head chef, Incanto, get named as one of the top restaurants in the Bay Area, according to the Chronicle.

When GQ ranked the Top 25 Coolest Athletes of all-time, so were a bit confused that Tim Lincecum, the 2x Cy Young winner and World Series winner was a bit young to be on the list. But really, there hasn’t been an interesting, cool baseball player with his own personal off-the-cuff style that is also an ambassador in the baseball tradition like Tim L.

Others on the list that are really cool? Ali, George Best, Bob Gibson, Walt Frazier, Jordan, and a personal, East Bay favorite, Ken Stabler.

Oh, don’t act like this doesn’t interest you. It does. You don’t have a heartbeat if it doesn’t. The Guardian compiled their Top 10 of good sex in fiction, and the list is sort of what you would expect.

Roman Sommerville, an author, wrote the list, and had this to say: “Most adults are interested in sex. I am. My father was, and said as much to me when he was 92. I suspect that you are too. You’re reading this after all. Being so central to much of our lives and indeed life itself, it is a valid and important topic for fiction.”

A few that we know:

10. Platform by Michel Houellebecq
6. Dracula by Bram Stoker
5. Lady Chatterley’s Lover by DH Lawrence
1. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov (1955)
