I was watching the IndyCar Championship with my four year old son when it happened. I turned it off immediately knowing something bad had happened. A fiery fifteen car crash that looked as terrifying as anything I had ever seen. I couldn't have imagined it was this bad. I've been to the Indianapolis 500 almost every year since I was 14. I'm not a huge auto racing fan, but I definitely know more than the average sports fan and I love IndyCar racing. The first time I met Dan Wheldon was at a breakfast meeting and I had no idea...

RE: Pico vs. Previous. I don't care as long as it changes on a regular basis. I've come to expect it and feel let down if sippey.com doesn't change once a quarter. RE: interactive. I'm still obsessed with Press Here by Herve Tullet. I brought it in the other day to print (and web) designers to show them how much fun you can have with paper and imagination.

We just did the opposite move and have instantly started to appreciate the mental lift from breaking routine. Good luck with the move and enjoy the Bay. And don't fall into the trap of believing there aren't seasons. They are just more subtle.

Francisco is admired for his devil-may-care-swing-at-everything-and-kill-it-into-the-riverness, Volquez for his Bugs Bunny changeup (one of the best in the biz at getting whiffs), and Chapman for...duh. You know, we really do have a fun team to watch. Aside from the guys who made the list, we have one of the best hitters in the game (Votto's opposite-field power is something for which we should build a statue), an acrobatic Gold-Glove 2B, a RF with a bazooka on his shoulder, a CF who runs like he's in a Serengeti documentary, and a LF who races four-wheelers around the warning track.
