A couple more anticlimactic days and we can finally close the book on the 2011 NFL season. And turn our attention to … golf. At least Jim Harbaugh will, since he’ll be teeing it up at Pebble Beach next week. That could be worth a look-see. Somehow, I can’t envision Jim having a whole lot of touch on the greens.
The glamour pairing of the tournament will be Tiger Woods and Tony Romo. Mr. Clutch and Mr. Choke. Tony plays golf like he plays football, great in the early going, blub blub blub on Sunday. You have to hand it to Tony, though. It takes a lot of talent to be a two sport loser.
The league okayed a $200 million input to the 49ers new Santa Clara stadium, pretty much sealing the deal on that enterprise. Ground breaking is scheduled to begin this summer. In a couple of years, the franchise will go from having the worst stadium in the league to having the best. Jed York is tearing up the league these days.
Vernon Davis has seats in Indianapolis this weekend and Michael Crabtree is in Dallas hanging with his home boys. Can we smell jealousy here? Crab has never been the second banana on a team and it might be getting to him. In the Saints game, he came up small while Vernon soared. In the Giants game, Vernon kept soaring and Crab shrunk into nothing. Maybe there’s something in the Dallas environment that stimulates gagging. This coming year is a make or break season for his tenure on the team. If he gets that far. Going into his fourth year, he has yet to participate in an offseason or TC or play in the preseason.
Come Monday, one of the Sunday QBs will be compared to Joe Montana. Ha ha ha. Next year, somebody else will be compared to Montana. Montana is the gold standard. Forget about it, East Coast wannabes. Ten years from now, it will still be Joe that everyone is compared to.
Also on Monday, I might be past my denial phase and get an idea for an actual post instead of “Oh Look, some words on the screen. Let’s skip to the comment section and get some meat.” Sigh. The only joy in my life now is deleting Albert McSpittlestink posts. Not sure if my trash bin is big enough for the garbage. I made need a terabyte upgrade.
