I've sat near Sal's seats at Giants games for years.  He often screams homophobic profanity at  players.  Not good for kids, stale material.  I'm surprised BASG isn't mocking this clown.

@Jed Yeah, I haven't heard good things about Sal as well. I did see him one time when I outside of my work building and he said hi, so that was cool. He seemed like a good guy, but yeah, I have heard creepy things about him.

What is Bay Area Sports Guy?

It is the top independent sports site covering the teams that play in the best sports region in the United States. BASG is not an ordinary fan blog. It is a place where sports news is broken and analyzed by writers with access who are not afraid to question the status quo, writers who also produce original content in the form of videos, photographs and podcasts.
