Brock’s in San Diego (hi, Brock! Miss you!) so I’m on my own with the wonderful Beth Spotswood, counting down our favorite news stories on 2009 during our live show with VidSF, SF Views. And we’re going for 30 minutes today, which will either be wonderful or incredibly boring. You tell us!

Please do join in the conversation (we’re fixing the chat function right now) when we go live from PariSoMa at 4 PM today. (If you’re having trouble getting the video to play, hit “refresh” and it should kick in.)

As always, thanks to our sponsors, BATS Improv and Waits-Mast Family Cellars.

    SF Views needs moar Brock, IMHO. Can’t you have him remote via one of those fancy hologram things like on CNN?

    Could not agree more! Please do what you can to prevent Brock from leaving town in future. Thank you.

    1) The Bridge closure and S-Curve was one of my faves.

    2) Montana! Montana! Montana!

    3) No one has mentioned that Chief Gascon is will carry on the proud SF sartorial excellence of Willie and Gavin.

    For some reason I can’t see the videos the SF Appeal broadcasts. I think it might have something to do with my browser and I’ll look into it but it is really annoying not to be able to watch the videos. There is just a big, blank white space where the video should be. Maybe you could put these things on YouTube? I wanted to see the one that was posted a while back that starred Sweetie Melissa Griffin but couldn’t for the said reason.

    I should add that I went to VidSF and had the same problem only instead of a big, blank white space there was a big, blank black space.
