After the Giants World Series victory turned rowdy in San Francisco, rioters on McAllister and Larkin jumped on a couple stalled buses, trashing the inside and hitting the sides. But there was one dude who just WASN’T FEELING IT. He sat in the back of the bus, completely unimpressed with the shenanigans probably texting his friend about his miserable night: “and now these dumbass rioters are monkeying around on my bus because of some football game.”
Apparently everyone outside noticed his lack of celebratory and destructive spirit so they started taking photos until the lights went out.
revelers celebrating the Giants World Series victory turned rowdy. Poor guy! He’s the most mature guy out there.

Meet Kyle. He’s a hardworking employee at UC Davis Coffee House, where he works 35+ hours a week to pay for school — where he takes 21 units. According to his friends he’s one of the most kind hearted people you’ll ever meet and treats every customer like they’re a close friend.
Another thing you should know about Kyle: He’s the biggest SF Giants fan. To show him how much they loved him, his friends and coworkers pooled money together to give him tickets to the World-freaking-Series to see his favourite team!! They surprised him and caught his stunned reaction on camera.
If you’re having a bad day, this video will definitely make you have a little more faith in humanity — though be warned, you might shed a few manly tears.

Demi Lovato has has a rough year with rehab, break-ups, and unwanted rumours. But the 19-year-old has tons to celebrate right now. Her new album, Unbroken, just came out and the Texan native was invited to sing the national anthem at Game 5 of the World Series.
Seen sporting a Texas Rangers jersey and blazer, Demi stood in front of over 50,000 people, showing off her great vocal range.
Demi told MTV News she was over the moon when approached with the offer.
“Getting to do this in my hometown of Dallas, Texas, is such a dream come true, because I’ve been to these Rangers games many times. I’ve sat in the nosebleed sections where you can barely see anything and now I’m going to be singing on the field. That to me is such a dream come true and it represents my journey and how far I’ve come.”
Check out the video of Demi below. Talk about a comeback!
I’m going to get something off my chest right out of the gate: I haven’t been a fan of baseball nor baseball videogames for the last decade or so. Watching the game can be downright boring, and playing a virtual representation seems to result in little more than timing mini-games and a few button presses.
Then along comes Visual Concepts’ MLB 2K10. For the first time since I last held aloft a piece of lumber, here’s a video game that actually made me feel like I was playing the game again. Everything feels crisp, clean, and connected – as if you are actually on the mound dueling with the batter, desperately trying to keep the sweat out of your eyes as you look down another full count with the bases loaded.
The presentation of the 2K10 is spot on, from the commercial bumpers during the telecast, to the voiceovers calling the shots during the games themselves. Having spent enough time running bases and trying to make double plays, I have yet to hear a repeat canned soundbite, which was a great surprise and welcome change from previous years’ entries. You get the best of both worlds from Visual Concepts’ setup – all of the stats and random personal facts that hardcore hardball fans crave, but enough of the “seen on TV” presentation that it flows wonderfully into you actually stepping into the batter’s box to see just how far you can crank that sliding fastball.
Your options for gameplay seems to have improved significantly as well. You can play any MLB game currently being played, or set up to be played on a specific day through MLB Today. It’s always fun to see if you can do a better job than the big boys at there own game (or feel as humbled as they do when things don’t exactly work out the way you wanted them to). Home Run Derby is included, and is pretty much exactly what it claims to be: hit homers, anything else is an out, get the most points. My Player is the heart of the game, and you’ll definitely find yourself spending the majority of time grinding away through this mode. You create a rookie phenom, pick your favourite franchise to be drafted into, and then set off to try to become an MLB legend. Read more…
