Too Much Time On My Hands

Well, the full doldrums have set in. At least in the football world. I tell ya though this is a pretty golden time to be a Bay Area sports fan. The Giants are reigning World Champs, having won 3 of the last 5 World Series, the 49ers were oh, so close in the Super Bowl a couple years ago, and the Golden State Warriors just finished their improbable run to their 2nd championship in California by beating King James and his court of backups. Some are already casting aspersions on the Dubs as they didn’t have to face a) San Antonio or b) the Clippers, and every team they faced has point guard injuries to deal with. Well, tough noogies.

If San Antonio was so good, they shouldn’t have lost to LA. If LA was so good, they shouldn’t have lost to Houston. The Clippers BTW showed absolutely NO guts by blowing a 20 point lead in game 6. You play with the cards you are dealt. Were the Cavs crippled by injuries? Yeah, somewhat. But, again, tough shit. Tristan Thompson played defense about 100% better than Kevin Love could ever dream of. Did they miss his offense? Maybe, but shit happens. Did they miss Kyrie Irving? Sure. Could he have played defense like fucking Dellavedova did? Possible, but he certainly would have brought more offense. Thong is, you don’t know. If both teams get together at full strength would shit be different? No way to know.

Part of what helped the Warriors during the season was he fact that they had a strong bench. They had role players that could step in when needed. Lee, Bogut, Green, Thompson, and even Curry (and others) missed some time this year due to injuries, but they entered the playoffs fairly unscathed. This however, was tested when both Steph Curry and Klay Thompson both suffered head injuries vs Houston. Steph appeared to struggle for a few games after his injury, and Thompson certainly wasn’t his usual self during the finals. Everyone is banged up at this point in the season. You deal with the grind of the season, and the extra grind of the playoffs. At this point, the NBA should really think about shortening the regular season, as the playoffs are such a long haul.

Kudos to Steve Kerr and the Warriors for a truly epic season.  Let’s hope the Niners pick up where they leave off.

    Glad to know you are reading this, V. What misspelling?

  2. Winder says:

    Well another fun day in Blogland. Chuck, basketball just got real interesting in the Bay Area, by all rights we should be a better team next season. Maybe pigs do fly. It really is a dead time for football, but there is no way I am ready to throw in the towel just yet. I really don’t know much of anything about Tomsula excepting that he’s a good motivator. I believe we have some good football minds with Mangini and spirano(sp on both) and who really knows what were gonna look like. If all these prognosticators in the media were such great football minds WTF aren’t they coaching. My guess is the heard mentality is at play.

  3. rob says:

    Congrats to you golden state fans

  4. Nipper says:

    Poor Chuck is being roasted on the other blog. At least he’s awarded the proper respect here. Bullit lays it on thick and the right-wing V makes Sarah Palin look like a flaming liberal! Spit is so reactionary he thinks the exploits of Genghis Khan is current news.

    • rob says:

      I was going to say the 49ers outsider site makes a carnival freak show look like a baptist church choir. I won’t because that would be a massive insult to both

  5. unca_chuck says:

    Hah! It is pretty amusing winding those guys up. I think even Spitty got out-crazied and left.

    • Berger says:

      Greg Cosell has been Bullit’s main quote for a while. All of this positive info must be making him re-think Cosell’s worthiness.

      • 12th Man says:

        Thing is its true Berger, this team is loaded with talent they have been grooming for 2 years and the coaching depth is incredible. The HC has a limited NFL experience but more than Harbaugh had. I just don’t get why all the wailing without a single meaningful snap.

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Interesting article. I’ve been saying the same thing for 3 months. Doesn’t mean either of us are right, just that there’s another side to this that the knee-jerk crowd overlooks.

  7. Lurker John says:

    Hey, I’m ready for training camp to start, see what we have this year. New year, new era. The Giants and now the Dubs are recent champs. It’s time to get the Niners back in the championship column. I’d love to shut up some of these asshole Seahawks fans I have to work with, about half of which are of the bandwagon variety.

  8. unca_chuck says:

    Fuck. It’s like shooting dead fish in an empty barrel is Skeebsland.

    Fun times a ridgemont high . . .

  9. Winder says:

    rt- this should make you smile

  10. Berger says:

    Two big things happened in the off season to get the Warriors over the hump. Better depth and better coaching. Firing a very popular head coach was not received well. Seemed to work out just fine.

  11. Nipper says:

    Skeebers tolerates Chuck on his blog for COMIC RELIEF! The World awaits Chuck’s response.

    • rob says:

      omg NIPP.
      THAT WHOLE BLOG IS COMIC RELIEF. first you have a bunch of guys who think harbaugh is such a great coach nobody else could ever replace him . this year alone three guys i would rather have went to other teams QUINN , SHANAHAN and FANGIO !

      They also seem to think winning coaches are never replaced … just look at FOX !

      They don’t want to look at the fact that we had 12-4 talent here for all of harbaugh’s tenure ! when you have 12-4 talent you tend to go 11-5 / 12-4 ! when you go 12-4 you tend to win your division ! when you do that you tend to have just one playoff game to win vs. the weakest seed . you also get to play that game at home ! upon winning that game you tend to move on to the championship game ! our record in game played for championships was 1-3 !

      the worst part is that for all of the fucking goddamm waste of the nolan years all they could do was play the fool
      SKEEBERS spent most of his time playing miss manners and telling everyone why we shouldn’t be talking that way to our fellow niners fans ! trying to convince these dunces that nolan and john york sucked was met with him playing ann landers !
      BULLITT mantained that you not only couldn’t criticize the team you were some kind of worthless idiot if you even had an idea that didn’t go along with his official 49ers party line . like when i would suggest we might trade up a few spots for a player and would get the paragraph long explanatio of why we DON’T do that lol
      NOFEAR is still pounding the drum for the position coach
      the other two fools V and spitoon can’t even post anywhere else lol
      the best part is seeing them all on the same blog now !

  12. rob says:

    the funny thing is the loss of anthony davis of all things might hurt the most this year . last year we were missing both willis and bowman so bowman and wilhoite sounds ok. we lost crabs but added torry smith . on the Dline we lost smith but added dockett. dumped macdonald but added a first rd. pick. Lost frank but even there we were already lookingh to replace him with hyde sooner or later. The scary one to me is the O-line ! staley , boone , and a returning kilgore are good to go ! brandon thomas at RG is good with me too ! but wtf are we going to do at RT

  13. ROB says:

    omg just read a snappy retort on skeebers site to chuck .
    chuck says ” you guys are going to be stuck holding your dicks if we ….
    thier mighty clever comeback
    ” well chuck at least we have a dick to hold ”
    LOL

  14. ROB says:

    Still have my concerns about our O-line here! i like staley and boone and have high expectations for thomas ! kilgore imho was playing about as good as anybody on our line before he got hurt so i really like him too !
    Who is our 5th ?

  15. ROB says:

    Trent Brown maybe ?

    • Winder says:

      rob- if brown can do it that would be a total steal from the draft standpoint. I look at it like Davis didn’t want to play anymore so at least we won’t have a season watching him go through the motions. We will find the right guy.

      • Berger says:

        Davis was sucking big time the last two years. Thing is our whole line sucked last year. I think the offensive scheme was the biggest problem. Davis is a mauling run blocker who could not pass protect very well. I’m glad he retired.

      • rob says:

        love your optimism WINDER ! we will find the right guy ! we also have marcus martin in the mix !

  16. Nipper says:

    This is one weird off-season no question. I guess the Stick is just about flat. Looks like a dump site.

  17. rob says:

    We have staley , boone , martin , kilgore and thomas with brown in the mix .

  18. rob says:

    Just got this from barrows

    LT staley LG thomas C kilgore RG pears RT boone

    Me i’m thinking martin is still in the mix.

  19. Nipper says:

    Free discourse has been banned on the Skeebers blog. Chuck has been declared persona non grata! And Sir Spit has declared this blog is full of nincompoops!.

  20. Berger says:

    What did Unca say this thread about this thread? Too much time on my hands.

  21. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, so much for Skeebers. He can’t take dissenting points of view. And he’s Bullitt’s and NoFear’s little bitch.

    I suppose V will not get in a huff about it, I mean. free speech only matters when it follows your narrative. Spitty will continue to talk to himself through Bakkentom, and only Winder remains to fight the fight against one-sided gobbledey-gook.

    Too fucking funny. I should start tallying how many times Bullit says apologist.

    • Winder says:

      I’m not even sure what an apologist is, and what does it have to do with Niners? I’m kinda pissed that you were booted though you were not out of line that I could see.

      • Nipper says:

        The Kingdom of Geneoushire is dancing in the streets.

      • rob says:

        an ‘APOLOGIST’ is what they called BULLITT and his ilk when they supported every move the niners made out of the desire to be looked at as our #1 fan ! now that they have been proved wrong about nolan , john york etc and the 49ers as god ( trying to grow up ?) he figures it’s revenge time! instead they should throw away the niner jammies with the feet on them and grow the fuck up!

  22. You people make me fucking sick. “The Niners Forever” v (no, not that Joe Montana ass-kissing Jed York ass-hat bashing Democrat ass-hating put up a Mexican border get the fuck outta my country al a Donald Trump’s-ass v) The “Outsiders.”

    Now Skeebers has given Chuck the heave-ho? Priceless. I was afforded the same honor myself many moons ago on that rag. I’ve been kicked off of this POS site twice. Or was it thrice? Who gives a flying fuck.

    The point being, WTF happened to free speech? Went out the same fucking window along with toughness in the NFL. “I’m retiring. I’m concerned about my health and safety.”

    Fuuuccckkk youuu!

  23. Tell you people what I’m gonna do…I’m gonna drum up the ambition, somehow, someway, and start my own POS blog. There were will be no headlines. No updates. No reviews. No story lines. No nothing. Just an open forum to speak your mind. In fact, I don’t even want that shit. I don’t want to know what’s on your mind. I’m just going to go there and talk to myself. Just like I do when I feed my animals. I talk.They listen. They eat. A good time is had by all.

  24. 12th Man says:

    Banning Chuck was a bad idea. The traffic on Skeebs blog was driven in large part by the bickering between Chuck and Bull(sh)it.

    Anywho, back to football, Staley making the right noises:
    http://www.49ers.com/news/article-2/Joe-Staley-Gives-49ers-OC-Geep-Chryst-High-Marks-for-Offseason-Practices/00690621-4693-452a-809a-857992a9c28c

  25. unca_chuck says:

    Dennis, this isn’t about free speech, it’s about your racist rants. So don’t play the free speech card, vermin. You are lower than dogshit in my book.

    Start a blog. Be my guest.

  26. unca_chuck says:

    What’s funny is I can post directly to Skeebs w/o the rest of the bog seeing it. Hyuk!

  27. Berger says:

    “(Geep) has a great understanding of the offense and how everything fits together,” Staley said. “He understands how the offensive line’s blocking schemes affect what the quarterback does.”

    This doesn’t mean much to me because Staley’s comparisons are to the Singletary and Harbaugh offenses. Two of the worst we’ve ever had. Compared to those two, of course Jeep looks smart. I’ll just wait to see before I get excited about the offense.

  28. Berger says:

    Good to see Dennis is in a little better mood these days!

  29. Winder says:

    hey dennis – start a blog where every other word probably “Fuck” and I’m in. the only thing is, i don’t know Jack-Fuck about horse racing.

  30. Berger says:

    Here’s a quote from Rob from earlier n this thread:

    “They don’t want to look at the fact that we had 12-4 talent here for all of harbaugh’s tenure ! when you have 12-4 talent you tend to go 11-5 / 12-4 ! when you go 12-4 you tend to win your division ! when you do that you tend to have just one playoff game to win vs. the weakest seed . you also get to play that game at home ! upon winning that game you tend to move on to the championship game ! our record in game played for championships was 1-3 !”

    This is spot on. Except it is actually 1-4 if you include the Super Bowl loss.

  31. Nipper says:

    Skeebs……if it ain’t a disease, it ought to be.

  32. rob says:

    Evan Mathis is available. Could be our online solution

  33. Mr. Breeze says:

    Del, you’re the man! Not too many men have their balls still intact. I tried to tell Skeebers the same thing but I was booted as well. I can care less if it’s me, you, unca_chuck, Spit or anyone else it’s sad that anyone can not speak freely anymore. Trying to control people talking politics BS, or music, this lets stick to the topic BS. Fuckin spineless woman have taken over!!!

  34. Nipper says:

    In Geneoushire there’s no plumbing. Spit has to piss in a pot. He likes it that way. He’s worried along with Bullit that Chuck will talk smack to them. Sniff……life is so cruel.

  35. unca_chuck says:

    Hate speech doesn’t equal free speech, breezie.

    I don’t have very many lines to cross but there are some.

    Become an annoying repetitive weasel, and pop! you’re gone.

    Same with racist shit. Right, Dennis?

  36. Mr. Breeze says:

    Chuck, you walk a fine line when you say Hate Speech must be eliminated. To you it might be a hate speech because you might be overly sensitive and get offended over anything, to others it just freedom of speech. Racist shit? For example you look at the Black Pastor from the local church their in Charleston talking about the Governor removing the Confederate Flag, one would assume he was all for it, right? No he said this is America and just as I have the right to speak my mind and hold my opinions so do they. He went on to say that some of his friends in the community fly the same flag in front of their homes and they are the nicest people he ever met. See to some people naturally it means racism but to them it means something entirely different and you can learn something from this don’t just judge people by appearance without knowing the truth about them.

    As far as your annoying repetitive crap and you’re gone. Well how do you want people to feel and treat you when every year you bounce right back up and start your repetitive mumble jumbo? It works both ways Chuck. How about no banning and just letting people speak freely. I can care less what you or anyone else says, I never get offended it’s a part of being a man and nothing else.

  37. unca_chuck says:

    Oh fuck off. The flag is a symbol of The confederate states of America. They were fighting for slavery. All the rest is typical rationalization from the idiots who fly it.

    That South Carolina flies it proudly is an indication how far there is to go in race relations.

  38. unca_chuck says:

    I don’t walk any line. I run this place. If I don’t like you, you go away.

    Fuck free speech. This is a football blog.

  39. Mr. Breeze says:

    Chuck, stay calm and don’t blow a Head Gasket, lol!!!! Look people got it so backwards and that they forget about a few important things in American History. First of all these Confederates from the Southern States who loved slavery and you’re complaining about who were they? DEMOCRATS! And if my memory serves me correctly who freed the slaves you now care so dearly about? REPUBLICANS! Who was Jim Crow? A DEMOCRAT! Jim Crow laws, poll taxes and even created the KKK in Southern States! President Harry Truman belonged to the KKK! What was he? A DEMOCRAT!

    It’s hilarious and only shows how deception works! The Democratic Party today is thought of as the political champion and proponent of the interests of black Americans. But for almost all of the history of this country, the Democrats were the party of slavery, secession, Jim Crow, lynching, segregation, and opposition to nearly every piece of civil rights legislation ever passed.

    The Republicans were the party of abolition and emancipation. They opposed segregation, lynching, and Jim Crow. And they were the sole authors of nearly every civil rights legislation and amendment passed in the United States! Can you say a group of people have been brainwashed into believing something that’s not true?

    So I ask you why do the Democrats lie to the Black Americans, is it just to get their votes and keep them dependant on Government Hand Outs? And secondly if you care so much why are you a Democrat? Or are you going to say F that to not only me who’s just hear keep it real and to tell the truth but as well to Freedom Of Speech that’s above all liberties that we have here in America?

  40. unca_chuck says:

    It isn’t now. Bye bye

  41. unca_chuck says:

    Lincoln’s secretary was named Kennedy. Who cares? This is football, not revisionist history. Get on point or you will once again be banned.

    Blowing heads is your game, skippy.

  42. Berger says:

    The independent Chuck gets awful mad when you mess with his Democrats.

  43. unca_chuck says:

    Ride the fence, skippy.

  44. unca_chuck says:

    I’ve voted independent more than anything else . . . starting with John Anderson back in 1980.

  45. unca_chuck says:

    Shit, between Spitty and V, Its a wonder the internet has words left to use.

    Spitty may fool the morons at Skeebers blog that he isn’t Bakkentom, but I mean really. Tom spends 2 days here and runs to Skeebers-land? Who makes that connection without foreknowledge?

    Pathetic, really. But whatever floats his boat.

  46. unca_chuck says:

    The fact that the republicans can get so many people to vote against their interests is what is amazing to me.

    Yay! I’m middle class! Raise my taxes on the back of giving tax breaks to the ultra rich! BOHICA!!

    Bend over, Berger. Here it comes again.

  47. Berger says:

    LOL! As I was saying!

  48. unca_chuck says:

    Whatevs, Bergs. Funny you had to steal my line that I leaned to the left but often voted independent. You just applied it to the right.

    • Berger says:

      You saying you lean to the left is like saying Nancy Pelosi leans tom the left. This is funny stuff you are floating! Are you going to be here all week, I’ll try the veal!

  49. Nipper says:

    I don’t vote. I’m part of the hoi polloi

    • Nipper says:

      And they don’t vote in Geneoushire. Sir Spit does all the voting.

    • Winder says:

      I haven’t voted for a long time myself. There are two main reasons for that. I haven’t liked any of the candidates, and living on this little rock in the middle of the ocean, the election is always over by the time they count our votes.

      • rob says:

        Me too winder. I am interested in politics but have only voted for President twice in my 52 years. Once for Reagan and last year for Gary Johnson. No not our ex #97 lol

  50. unca_chuck says:

    Don’t mean you didn’t steal my shit, Bergs. Cuz ya did.
    Both sides are in on the shell game anyway. I just think the right more blatantly panders to big biz.

    Citizens united is real good for the (corporate) people.

  51. rob says:

    Did we sign Evan Mathis yet ?

  52. unca_chuck says:

    Not a bad idea. Great pass blocker. One of the better guards in the game.

    Ain’t my money.

    • 12th Man says:

      salary cap says not at the current expected price. Let him dangle a bit and see if it has any effect.

  53. 12th Man says:

    The man tells the truth. Refreshing.

  54. 12th Man says:

    Makes very little difference if you vote Dem or Repub, both are in the bag for the Oligarchs. Sanders is an independent who is just about unelectable, but he is not in the bag so I like him.
    Sure he would take the country too far left but it could use a little leveling out IMO. Unless you are one of the ruling class, in which case vote Hilary or whichever of the tallest Leprechauns wins the contest for the Repubs.

  55. Nipper says:

    Sir Spit dresses in purple robes and pretends this is the 12th Century. Geneoushire is cold and windy but what the heck he’s found a home on the other blog.

    • 12th Man says:

      For now. He doesn’t last long anywhere, too busy impressing himself at everyone elses expense.

  56. Nipper says:

    Now Sir Spit claims he’s got “a good eye” and he’s “insightful” about the 49ers and Jed York. He can tell that both will be busts in the coming season and beyond. Yes sir, that’s the other blog in a nutshell….anti-49er! The white flag of defeat has been raised!

  57. Mr. Breeze says:

    12th man, what do you think Greg Cosell was going to say about the 49ers, they stink? These people are suck assess and you’ll never hear the truth from them. If Singletary were still here you would hear the same BS that he reported sorry but that’s a fact.

    Some people think that people who tell the truth are just doom and gloom type of fans and that’s far from reality. The truth is if the winning moves made in Seattle were made here everyone would be onboard but that didn’t happen so the only people who believe are fans that would just merely believe no matter what transpired.

    Harbaugh was a decent coach but lets face it he left because he got tired of the York’s telling him what to do and yes that included forcing him to turn Alex Smith into a winner. See they did this not for the teams overall success but to try and prove people wrong that a mistake never happened. When you got medley Owners, who try and save money, who are egotistical and want things done their way this is what you end up with. The only Coach that would take this job is a Brown Nose SOB. A shell of a man, with no pride, no balls who going to do what he is told to do. Welcome Jim Tomsula aka Humpty Dumpty!

    Caring about winning and assembling the best minds in the business takes time and effort not just a move done with no winning thought just to quickly fill a void. Yes Smart fans wait to see winning moves being made before they put their support around something. That’s why if Carroll was here along with Russell Wilson we’d all be on the same page but please don’t act as if that happened because it didn’t.

  58. 12th Man says:

    “sorry but thats a fact” Actually no it isn’t, its an opinion, yours.

    I like Cosell, I liked him when he was criticizing Kap too. I also don’t think Cosell would buck the trend of writing off the Niners just to appease the minority of fans who think the team has a chance of making playoffs this year, how would that serve him?

    I was in favor of keeping Harbaugh if he got rid of Roman, however, if word out of Buffalo is correct, it may have been Harbaugh stifling Romans scheme, but who knows. The reality is Harbaugh had his shot and came up short. Blame whoever you want, it changes nothing.

    If you are certain the Niners will suck this year does that mean you jump ship? I believe the Spittoon vowed to no longer be a Niner fan, if he ever was one, if Harbaugh left. In fact he would become a Wolverine fan from then on, said so right here on this blog. Being the blowhard that he is he of course didn’t honor that commitment and as usual is spraying his half baked conspiracies hither and yonder managing to sway nobody as usual.

    I went to my share of games during the decade of suckitude and will again this year if that turns out to be the case. Tix for the Arizona game in Arizona and the Green Bay game at home in hand. I will buy the Niner gear at the stadium and actually support my team through ticket and clothing purchases as I have always done.

    I don’t subscribe to your “facts” as you see them and no amount of BS you put up will change my opinion. What will change my opinion will be seeing the games played out, how the schemes work or don’t, the level of talent on the field and most importantly how the coaches coach and make adjustments to their gameplay. Something Harbaugh was a pile of dog shit at doing, evidence last years first half/second half fiasco.

    In short I don’t claim clairvoyant powers such as you think you posses and will wait to see how it plays out.

    • Winder says:

      If I was in town I would be going to games too. I would love to experience the new stadium and all it has to offer. In that respect I am totally jealous.

      • 12th Man says:

        Winder the new stadium is horrible outside and great inside IMO. Loved the Stick but it was past time to build a new home. I like the new digs personally.

      • Winder says:

        Yeah 12th, there is no way that the memories of Candlestick can ever be replaced. Even if it was a dump. I actually go more cold there in the summer at Giant games than any of the winter Niner games and I had season tix for quite a few years.

    • Winder says:

      I still have a bunch of DeQuix De Candlestick(sp) pins somewhere in a box around here.

  59. unca_chuck says:

    I’d like to hear from Irish on the stadium experience. I’ve only seen a preseason game and the crowd bailed from the heat.

    And you are right, the outside of the stadium is blah to say the least/ it fits in to the light industry nature of the surroundings so the strip mall look is appropriate I suppose.

    The inside is fine. All in all fairly non-descript.

    • 12th man says:

      Heard a lot about crowd noise. All I can say is people were doing the same as they did at the Stick, at least around me. Can’t tell if it’s more or less on the field.
      I went later in the year so the heat was no biggie.

  60. Nipper says:

    Sitting in front of the Flat Screen the stadium looks fine. Never been there and probably will never go there. Football is better on TV. No crowds, no parking, no public transit shit and if the game is lousy the remote takes care of everything. Go 49ers and Jed York!

    • 12th Man says:

      No expensive beer, no overpriced food, no obnoxious opposing fans, what kind of fun is that Nipper?

      • Nipper says:

        Nice and dull. If I want excitement I can always turn on the Raiders. Oh on the sensitive blog they’re still grousing about Harbaugh. Man talk about beating a subject to a pulp!

      • 12th Man says:

        Mind-blowing how people can blather on for months about the same shit. Get a life.

  61. Sam says:

    Unca_Chuck,
    I read most Niner blogs/forums but usually don’t comment or do so very infrequently because usually someone has already posted what I was going to say.
    Re the Harbaugh firing: On most Niner blogs, there are some fans who still bitter, others have moved on, and some glad that Harbaugh is gone….in other words a mix.
    Skeebersville is the only place where it is all doom & gloom, 24/7. It’s been almost seven months since Harbaugh was “mutually departed”, how long will they continue? months, years? For what?
    The funniest part is if one was a reader of Kevin Lynch’s blog going back to 2007, one would know that most of the characters on Skeebers blog could not agree on anything Niner related during the Nolan/Sing era. Now, suddenly, they chant in unison. Hilarious.
    Full disclosure: I am glad Harbaugh came to the Niners, thankful that he helped make the franchise relevant again. Realist enough to know that Harbaugh was never going to a Niner HC for a decade. It was time for Harbaugh to move on. Yes, Jed should have handled it much better, and I have my reservations on Tomsula.
    Life goes on.

    Well guys, I missed the opportunity to partake at the Stick, after all these years of hoping for the chance.
    It’s still on my Bucket List and, I’m hoping to find the time to enjoy the Stadium experience in Santa Clara sometime before my number is called.

    For now, I’m holding tickets for the SNF game here in NJ vs the NYG.
    No matter the record, I’m still a 9er Fan.

    If I ever get the chance to fly out there for a home game, I’ll let you know.
    Would be nice to meet some of you, if the opportunity ever presents itself.

    In the meantime, I shared this over on Skeebs’ site, thought it was worth recycling…..

        Works for me 12th 😀

        My eldest Son got engaged/proposed on the JumboTron at the Stick.
        At least I’ll have that memory to hang onto.
        He did the Old Man proud as a 9er Fan.

        That’s awesome NJ, a treasured memory.

        As luck would have it 12th, he went to college with a kid whose Dad was connected to tickets at the Stick back in the late 90s.
        He got out there for 2 games and used the JumboTron to make his proposal on his own dime a few years later.

        He was at the game vs NYG when Ken Norton Jr broke Bryant Young’s leg too.
        ’98 I think?
        He said you could hear people talking on the other side of the stadium after that happened.
        Gruesome memory.

    Welcome, Sam. As you can see, I’m of the same mind. I get the angst over losing Harbaugh but to blame anything and everything that has happened since on that decision is a bit childish. Owners are owners. Irsay’s a crazy-ass drunk, Jerry Jones has nothing on your average megalomaniac, Snyder’s a meddling prick. For all the turmoil these last couple offseasons, it doesn’t really matter til they hit the field.

    NJ, wasn’t that a Monday Night game? I seem to remember that. Awful thing, but gladly Young recovered.

    • NJ49er says:

      Yeh Chuck. MNF vs G-Men.
      Almost threw up that night, (and the night LT broke Theisman’s leg).
      2 of the most nauseating experiences I can recall in all my years as a football fan.

    The eastern media denigration of the Dubs champeenship is nothing new — same deal as the Giants 3 in 5. They’re “lucky” because — you name it. Well, the Dubs won 67 regular season games, one of the 10 best seasons ever. Add in the playoff wins, and they won 83, lost only 20 or some such overall. That win total including playoffs is the THIRD highest all time. Only two of Jordan’s team in Chitown were better. Looking for “luck” as a big reason for the Dubs win is absolute bunk…

    Hate to say it, NJ, but I laughed when Theisman went down. Never disliked a guy so much in my life. Plus I got my best burn on him when I saw him at the pro blow in 1998. I was hanging by the sidelines and he was interviewing someone about 20′ away, so I yelled out, “Hey Joe! Break a leg!!” Followed that up with a “Go Niners!!”

    My buddies nearly died laughing, and he gave me the dirtiest look I’ve ever gotten ever. Ahhh, memories.

    New thread is up BTW.
