Golden Nuggets: Hello London!

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Tuesday, October 22, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

The 49ers are on their longest (in distance) road trip this season to the UK where football is not football, colour has a U, Sunday afternoons are for drinking tea, there is an actual living Queen, and the Kings of the box office are names like Bond, Bean and Powers. If Aldon Smith was there, Austin Powers will definitely tell him, "Oh behave!" And in case you'll be tweeting about the Niners this week, the official hashtag for this trip is #UK49ers.
