Los Angeles, CA.--
After watching the Giants continue to handle the ball as if it were a beehive, manager Bruce Bochy made a remark that stung.

"I don't think I've quite seen what I saw tonight," Bochy said after San Francisco committed three errors Monday night and fell, 9-1, to the Los Angeles Dodgers. "It looked like we skipped Spring Training."

And yet another study that was obvious from the start -- sex is tough for parents in their thirties. Why? Well, reason No. 1, they're parents. Add to that the financial stress that most parents feel and the fireworks in the bedroom start to fizzle. But keep your head up because things get better. The survey of 25,000 discovered that things start revving up again once you hit your 50s, and women have the greatest confidence in their bodies once they're in their 60s.

Love is strange -- a fact proven each and every day on Craigslist. In a recently posted ad, a Denver man says he's selling his 1994 Goldwing motorcycle to pay for his wife to get a boob job.
