I don't think I've seen an episode of Survivor since the days Elizabeth Hasselbeck wasn't a Hasselbeck. That's been about 63 seasons ago and somehow the show is still around. Evidently, former San Francisco Giants second basemen Jeff Kent was booted off the island last night and was none too pleased. While you can watch the entire tribal council thingy here, the golden clip is Kent's final words after losing his chance at a million dollars. Not only does he get in a shot at President Obama, he references the millions he made in his MLB career, and calls himself a Game 7 loser.
"You know what pisses me off? I think I've made about $60 million playing baseball and I want this frickin' million dollars in this game. And it's not even a million bucks, it's 600,000 by the time Obama takes it. I'm a Game 7 World Series loser. You know I played in the biggest games in the world and the worst games in the world, but this just sucks. "
Game 7 World Series loser, Survivor loser, future tax hike victim. Man, Jeff Kent has it rough.
BEST OF MAXIM
OFF THE ISLAND

With the World Series win still fresh on most fans minds. It’s now time for the San Francisco Giants front office to start focusing on 2013.
It’s going to be a big decision for them to decide if Brian Wilson should be offered arbitration or non-tender him. Wilson made $8.5 million in 2012. The Giants could be considering a deal that doesn’t guarantee as much for 2013 but...
This contains a spolier alert. But here's the thing: this was the one week where we decided to wait until Thursday to watch Survivor. And of course, this was the week where the outcome was spoiled for me. And if it was spoiled for me, chances are it was spoiled for you too, since it's pretty much all over the Internet. So here goes:
The tribe has spoken. Jeff Kent is gone...
Gary Brown is one of the Giants top prospects, and is the potential center fielder of the future. After destroying pitching in High A San Jose, he ran into a bit of a wall in AA Richmond.
This morning Baseball Prospectus has him as their prospect profile (for free!). It's a nice little glimpse into what has been going on with him if you haven't been following his...

Jeff Kent is just a normal guy — like the typical Major League Baseball ticket buyer, really. At least that’s what he’s insisted.
Millions of dollars, All-Star profile and fights with Barry Bonds aside, Kent recently participated on the newest edition of Survivor, which was always an interesting choice considering his known ornery personality from his playing days. Apparently...
It’s the small moves that make a season and a team.
I admit, when the Giants picked up Ryan Vogelsong, I thought it was to sell tickets in Fresno. I was wrong.
When the Giants found Pat Burrell on the scrap heap, I expected it to be a non-factor in anything. Nope.
Cody Ross? It seemed like sacrificing a roster spot to stop a rival. Well, not just.
Marco Scutaro? A fine...
Although the World Series is behind us, that doesn't mean there is a shortage of musical tributes done by San Francisco Giants fans.
In case you forgot, singer Ashkon became a viral sensation in 2010 for his remaking of "Don't Stop Believing" for the Giants World Series run against the Texas Rangers.
Now, here is his 2012 version using "We Are the Champions...
Do you see random sh$% while driving to work and think it needs to be seen by the masses? Does the guy who sits next to you at work look like a tool on a daily basis? Does your dog lick his balls in an odd fashion? Is your neighbor working on some sort of outer space vehicle behind his shed? We want your WTF photos.
