Happy 138th anniversary of the Battle of Little Bighorn, everyone! Obviously the more hardcore history buffs among us commemorate this day by going to southern Montana to die stupidly, but how will YOU celebrate?
Welcoming the New Guy
Brandon Crawford takes to the Brandon Blog to discuss his batting practice routine and to welcome Joe Panik to the team. Yes, welcome, Joe! If you don't do well over the next month, the Giants will trade for someone who will almost certainly block you at second base for years to come. So, uh, go out there and give it 110%, sport.

Yesterday, Luis Suarez bit an Italian player in a World Cup game. Jon Bois has thought it over and he has four reasons why people shouldn't bite other people. Now, if you had told me before I read the article that there were four whole reasons not to engage in person-biting, I would have thought you were nuts!
