Today Should Be a Holiday

He's no Steve Young.
Alex Smith makes me miss Steve Young

Why should today be a holiday? Because tonight the Steelers and Dolphins play in the first regular season game. Football is back, baby! And right now, the 49ers are undefeated! Woo hoo!

I'm thinking this season will be better than last season was. Not for my team, for me. Here in Nevada, we're in the Bay Area broadcasting region. The network games we got were the games that featured the Raiders and the 49ers. Sure that's great, I had a chance to watch all of my team's games last year. But my team went 4-12 last year, and it wasn't pretty. How many times can you watch the guys you're cheering for totally screw up before you lose your mind. (About 10). And it's not like I could change to the channel to a better game, because the Raiders were always on the other channel, and the Raiders ended up 4-12 too. Not good watching. It was either the Silver and Black nightmare or the Red and Gold train wreck. Since we're moving to Texas after week 1, we should be able to see some better games this season. When I say we I actually mean I, because I don't think Sam is as excited about watching football as I am.

One important note: The kids and I were in the car yesterday and we passed a Junior High school where the football team was practicing. Dylan shouted out "Touchdown!!!" That's my boy!!!

As far as the 49ers chances of winning this year. I think they have a good chance of getting the first pick in the draft next year.
