Juan Uribe made a lot of people in San Francisco happy last night -- even some who couldn't care less about the game of baseball.

In addition to giving the Giants a big lead over the Texas Rangers, Uribe's homer meant more free marijuana, you know, if you're into that kind of thing.

ReLeaf Herbal Center Medical Dispensary is giving away a joint to its customers for each round-tripper the Giants hit.

To get into the festive spirit, the shop is also offering big savings on a bright orange strain of marijuana and a THC-infused orange drink called -- wait for it -- "Giant Punch."

Coincidentally, Tim Lincecum helped give the hometown team a 1-0 series lead ...


Showing heart in San Francisco
Tony Bennett still has it at 84. He performed "God Bless America" during the seventh-inning stretch last night. Upset I couldn't reach grandma in time to warn her.

He's no Keith Hernandez
Some of you may have seen this before, but, hey, it's worth looking at again.

University of Michigan offensive lineman Taylor Lewan has a tattoo of a tiny mustache on his right index finger. All he has to do is press his finger up under his nose and he looks like Daniel Day-Lewis in "Gangs of New York."

Lewan said he got the ink because he likes attention and it's an unbelievable icebreaker with the ladies.

At least he's honest.

Performance enhancer?
Golfer John Daly told a reporter that he played better golf when he was drunk. The colorful Diet Coke enthusiast said that he hasn't had a drink in two years and has lost 117 pounds since having lap-band surgery.

Those things, of course, are good. But he just can't seem to improve his on-course performance.

"I've done everything right and haven't played worth a darn," he said. "It's unbelievable. I'm giving myself the chance to play good. It seems the more I work, the worse I get."

Meet Olivia Munn
Only a crazy person would cheat on Jessica Biel, so is Us Weekly calling Justin Timberlake crazy?

FAU announcer loses it
There are mini-meltdowns and medium-sized meltdowns. And then there is this.

Dave Lamont, the play-by-play man for Florida Atlantic University, took umbrage with a no-call in Saturday's game against Arkansas State. Just guessing here, but I think he wanted a flag for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Owls quarterback Jeff Van Camp.

His confusion spiraled into rage and ended with him saying he'd love to fight anyone in the press box.



And finally ...
Rangers fan Boris Briskin quit his job so he could watch his team in the playoffs.

Happy job-hunting, Boris. It's tough out there.
