By Alyssa Pereira

A lot of things happened this week in the Bay from World Cup fever to an Apple CEO revelation to (duh) SF PRIDE! Here’s our roundup of the week’s biggest headlines.

The World Cup: The U.S. Advances, Lots of Americans Still Aren’t Really Sure About the Rules of Soccer

Aaaah, soccer (as the Brazilians oughta call it). We’ve got the fever, and the only cure is our attention spans getting over it. In the meantime though, we’re pretty very infatuated with this monstrosity of an international event, from those crazy haircuts to some pretty good guidelines on how to watch a game we may not totally get. But hey, at least everyone understands why the Mexican coach is the perfect meme.

 

Pride Week Kicks Off in San Francisco!

It’s a San Francisco institution, so we’ve got the guide for your Pride. From what you should drink to the best places to watch the parade, we’ve got you covered to make the most of your day. As for what you should wear (or, not wear), you’re on your own!

 

Badass Stanford Professor is Kicked Out of Famed UK Theater for Crowdsurfing to Handel

Stanford’s Dr. David Glowacki was minding his own business, turning down for what, when he realized that this rendition of Handel’s “Messiah” was so moving that he literally needed to move. At the invitation of the conductor, who allowed the crowd to “clap or whoop” when they wanted to without “shushing,” Glowacki decided it was the perfect time to crowdsurf, because you know what kind of people love crowdsurfers? People at a classical concert in Bristol.

 

Surprise: Electronic Music Shows Are Kind of Dangerous When Drugs Are Around

It really wasn’t a good week for people attending electronic music shows. Across the country, a bunch of people were hospitalized (and worse) for doing some sketchy drugs. On Wednesday, nearly 40 concertgoers attending an Avicii show at Boston’s TD Garden were taken away in ambulances after consuming a “dangerous substance” and out in Las Vegas at the Electric Daisy Carnival, one person died and five were hospitalized. Yikes.

 

CNBC Panel on Lack of Out Homosexual CEOs Accidentally Outs Apple’s Tim Cook as a Homosexual CEO

Well, this is awkward. In a panel discussing the lack of out homosexuals running companies these days, an apparently in-the-know anchor named Simon Hobbs chimes in with one he knows of: the very much not publicly out Apple CEO Tim Cook. In what seems like the longest silence in poor Hobbs’ career, you can almost hear the sounds of producers gasping and a million tweets sent. “Oh dear, was that an error?” he asks to no one in particular. Yes. Yes it was, Mr. Hobbs.
