Unfortunately none of it is football related. The Dubs win an OT thriller to tie up their best-of-seven series with the SASpurs at two games. A game that I had the unmitigated luck to see from the comfort of a luxury suite. The Giants got a solid 7 innings of shut-out ball from Timmy as the Giants took 3 of 4 from the Atlanta Bravos. No mean feat there as the Giants reclaimed sole possession of first place. And the Sharks advanced to the next round of the playoffs in their Sysyphian quest to finally make it to the Stanley Cup finals.
In 49er news, the rookies got to walk through the facilities, making sure not to touch anything or lift anything to thus void the NFLPA agreement that no one can do anything anywhere without express written consent of deMaurice pompitous-of-love Smith and his gaggle of lawyers. There was an OTA or mini-mellon-cougar-camp or something last weekend. Then we get rookie camp, OTAs, regular mini camps, and then regular camp. I don’t know. Whatever the agreement was last year, it sure made a mess of what used to be called training camp. Now it’s no more two-a-days, designated pad/non-pad sessions, walk-throughs, shorts-and helmets practices, shirts and shoes required, tie and tails optional.
In other words, nothing really. So, as it is, enjoy the defending champion Giants, pray Steph Curry’s ankle holds up a little longer, and hope the Sharks can overcome their propensity to underwhelm in the playoffs.
