Golden Nuggets: Where Good Hygiene Is Optional

So yesterday, I wrote this long piece about how busy I've been and how I was back to putting together full iterations of the Golden Nuggets for you, the sexiest readers on SB Nation (don't feel too good about that - as a network we're pretty lax on the whole 'hygiene' front), and then of course, my internet went out on me and my entire article got all Ben Roethlisberger'd. So I had Fooch handle the Nuggets again, and now I'm back. Unfortunately, just quick links for the day as I do think sleep is required at some point. Onto the links and, as always, go Niners.
