Sports Agents Love Walnut Creek



On the other hand, this CoCo Times piece about the strange affection sports agencies have for Walnut Creek is kinda fun! Apparently, three major sports agencies have set up shop in the tony suburb, drawn by its proximity to San Francisco nightlife and two major universities. Top-tier athletes such as Rockets center Yao Ming can sample some of the Bay Area's finer nightclubs, but don't have to deal with the nasty traffic in the metropolitan core. As a result, major sports-star sightings are a lot more common than any mid-sized bedroom-and-boutique community has a right to expect.
