Happy New Year, everybody! Or at least, happy soon to be New Year. Wherever you might be, hopefully you're having a good time, or about to. And if you're like me and you're taking it easy tonight, more power to ya!
It's been quite a year for the 49ers and for Niners Nation. The year started with the 49ers getting a week off and awaiting their first opponent in the divisional round of the playoffs. A year later, they're playing in the wild card round, and it just so happens, against the same team they faced in the divisional round last season.
Ideally this year's edition of the playoffs finishes maybe five yards closer than later year! The 49ers came so close, but they're back once again. This year's road will be more difficult as they will have to win at least two road games, and possibly a third to get to the Meadowlands for Super Bowl XLVIII.
For tonight though, you can avoid the stress of waiting for playoff action. Have a good time tonight, and get some rest because the playoffs get started in a few days and stress levels shoot up. I hope everyone has a good night, and the new year brings good things. Have fun tonight!
If you're staying in, here is the podcast I recorded earlier today. If the player has any problems, head over to the BTR website. Tre will have one tomorrow at 9 a.m. PT and again on Thursday, then I'll be back on Friday.
