A charter member of the MLS, the San Jose Earthquakes played their first four seasons as the Clash before claiming the MLS Cup in 2001 and 2003. Though the team moved to Houston in '05, the franchise was reinstated in '08, bringing professional soccer back to the Bay Area. Buck Shaw Stadium serves as the team's current home, though a new stadium will shoot skyward in 2014, complete with luxury suites for fans and exhausted referees alike.

The Stanford cardinal-and-white have a drenched palette of historic excellence, and this year's football team maintains that level of general awesomeness. Led by coaching mastermind Jim Harbaugh and Heisman trophy candidate Andrew Luck at quarterback, Stanford is currently ranked in the top 20 by the AP Poll, standing in prime position to challenge opponents for Pac-10 supremacy and beyond for a bowl bid. Strap on your helmet and second-favorite chinstrap to cheer on the fourth most electrifying offense in America as you bask in the sunny goal line section at beautiful Stanford Stadium. Join the Cardinal for their homecoming game against Washington State, a special time when former residents, alumni, and secret societies secretly return for a nostalgic weekend of gridiron goodness and campus-wide celebration.

The knowledgeable, friendly staff at the The Fogarty Winery Tasting Room will help amateur ambrosialists and experienced grape sniffers select five vintage fermentations to sample from the wine list. The 2006 Langley Hill Vineyard SCM Estate Chardonnay stays true to its mountainous roots, packing a steely mineral punch, as hints of fruit usher in a soothing, refreshing finish. Only 94 cases of this nectar were produced and bottles are available for $48. Pamper your scarlet palate with a 2005 Lexington Santa Cruz Mountains Meritage. Poor weather patterns and surprise alien crop circles aside, 2005 produced a perfectly ripened yield. This cabernet-merlot blend is apt to drop flavor bombs of black fruit, spice and toasty oak, with lingering chords of cassis, plum, and loam. Only 447 cases were captured in the wild and you can walk your own bottle home for $45.

J&J Polo's instructors impart top-shelf swing mechanics and riding techniques to everyone from children to collegiate riders and professional players. Tailored to each rider, individual lessons focus on how nuances in body positioning and pockets full of oats can influence hitting and riding ability. Trainers isolate swinging in hitting-cage lessons that employ a stationary horse or run four-hour clinics where groups of riders move through hitting drills, rules and strategy sessions, and practice chukkers under the guidance of a professional player.

Amid the mythical landscapes and thrilling martial-arts battles in the film Mortal Kombat, you might see Richard Branden performing swift punches and mighty kicks as an outland warrior. Richard?s role in Mortal Kombat is just one of his many motion-picture credits, which include a stunt-double role in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and the Yin-Yang Man in WMAC Masters. The internationally renowned warrior has been practicing in martial arts since 1976, earning more than 35 international titles and six gold medals in chinese kung fu. A firm believer in the practice?s ability to enhance discipline and focus, as well as strength and agility, Branden opened Studio Kicks Palo Alto to help students of all ages reap martial arts? many benefits.

Bright red and blue mats sweep across the floor of the expansive studio, where Branden's staff conduct a variety of combat-centric classes. The trainers lead energetic circuit-training routines and kickboxing combinations in adult fitness classes, helping students improve form and technique as they work toward sliming their physiques and toning their muscles. Youngsters and adults alike can enroll in the martial-arts program, where instructors guide students through movements, techniques, and training exercises that aim to boost power, flexibility, and strength. In addition to improving physical fitness, the program?s curriculum seeks to bolster self-confidence, much like an Armani blazer with the padded shoulders and biceps already sown in.
