Sports can be pretty.
Football can be pretty.
Nothing was ever prettier than watching Double-Zero run under a Dan Pastorini rainbow. And Double-Zero did that quite often.
Luv Ya Blue. Luv Ya, Kenny Burrough. I miss you already.
My youth continues to get “tore up.” This one hurts.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the 49ers are rethinking their “plan” to ship out Jimmy G. and throw the keys to Trey Lance. I was kinda wondering when that might dawn on them. San Francisco still has a Super Bowl caliber roster. Jimmy G. has taken that team to one Super Bowl and come within a dropped interception by his defense of getting the Niners to another one. Yeah, I’ve watched Lance. Big upside. But he is simply not ready right now. He’s not close to ready. Jimmy G. is currently a better quarterback—a much better quarterback—than Trey Lance.
So what’s the rush? Lance will be ready when he’s ready. Until then, the Niners can continue to win a boatload of ballgames—including playoff games—with Garoppolo.
I will close with a Friday poem.
Fee, fi, fo, fum.
Art Briles is a horrendous human being.
And Tommy Tuberville is an idiot.
