Golden Nuggets: Double-Dip and Two-for-Tuesday

This is goofy head-gear gold right here. - Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Tuesday, November 5, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Lots of links pending so we're going to be serving up a double dose of them today to make up for yesterday. Let's open up both the BBQ and the Sweet & Sour dip today. Speaking of sweet & sour, I just found out that you can unfold those Chinese take-out boxes into a nifty plate. I swear I didn't know, but if you live in San Francisco and order a lot of Chinese take-out, you knew this already, right? Right? Ok I'm going off-topic there, but I'm claiming temporary insanity due to lack of 49ers football. That Carolina game can't come soon enough. I'm hungry for anything Niners related so now we invite you to relax, let us pull up a chair as the dining room proudly presents...your Nuggets!
