Morning, everyone. So I'm going to test out adding a few more things to the Nuggets.. you know, just because I can. At least for the offseason, I'll try and include more things from around SB Nation. For instance, if there's something worth noting around the NFL, I'll try and link to the coverage from the relevant team's blog. I'll also probably link other things around SB Nation that I found to be interesting, funny, etc. Things of that nature. I will implement this tomorrow. That being said, I also want to say that you guys can link anything you want in the comments, at least for the offseason. We'd all love to have a ton of super-relevant 49ers news, but if you've got something funny or interesting you want to share, hey, be my guest. It's the offseason, let's quell some boredom. That being said, I thought I'd share with you all that Fooch just used a deragatory term in an email to me and did not use [site decorum] tags. Should I report him to Gmail and see if I can get him banned? Seriously, uncivilized, much? I for one am offended.

49ers Tweet Of The Day "What's good San Jose for this eve? Tired of hearing about magic/celtics game.it should have been the Hawks!!" from Takeo Spikes, whose Twitter is here. As Stevenc pointed out in an email, he means the Atlanta Hawks.. but does he have to use the word 'Hawks' in reference to San Jose? Too soon, TKO, too soon.
Yesterday's Best Comment "Any hopes of getting an early release for good behavior?" from riderless. It's not from yesterday, but many felt it was a tragic omission yesterday and I see it as well. Because of this, I am awarding riderless one and a half YBCs. Who's keeping score? The post was in response to LondonNiner saying that he was posting from his cell (phone).
