Golden Nuggets: I Was Holding Out For A Better Contract

Good morning folks. We didn't have any Nuggets yesterday for various reasons, the biggest of which being the fact that I was not awake, but we're back to full strength today. The Niners Nation NFL Tournament of Badness is almost at an end, with only one match remaining, and is set to post tomorrow afternoon at 2:00 p.m. "Dallas Cowboys Being Referred To As 'America's Team'" is up against "Score, Commercial, Kickoff, Commercial." I boldly picked the latter to win and will stand by that, but a blowout for the former wouldn't surprise me the least bit. News slowed down a good bit for our 49ers, which I consider to be a good thing at this point, we don't need any big injuries or anymore two-day holdouts from star players. Let's just get to the linkage, enjoy.
