Golden Nuggets: Pessimistic for the greater good

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

Saturday, February 2nd, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

This is the last you'll be hearing from me until our fate has been decided. I'll likely be giving you guys the postgame recap and I'm sure I'll be pouring out my heart and soul into it, win or lose. If you happen to follow me on Twitter, you'll likely notice a ton of pessimism before and during the game.

That's all part of the gameplan. I'm going into full-on superstition mode, and as a baseball and hockey fan, I definitely have that done. When I'm pessimistic, the 49ers find a way to win the game, so if the Ravens jump to an early lead, just remember that I'm freaking out for the greater good.

The greater good. Remember that. Let's get to your linkage, children!
