Golden Nuggets: The Green Men vs The White Men

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Tuesday, January 7, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

It was Wildcard game day against the Packers, and my 3 year old nephew was up at 5:00 AM Manila time, so I thought it was perfect time to indoctrinate him into 49er fandom. He thoroughly enjoyed watching the game beside me for about 5 minutes, then he got distracted by dinosaurs. That's alright though since he will now be another Niners fan for life. Let me quote though how he described the game from his point of view:

"It was the green men and the white men and they were wearing helmets. The one with the green shirt fell... and then the many white ones got the ball. But there was only one white one who caught the football."

And there you have it. Definitely a future TV analyst in the making. Next week I'll teach him how to use a Telestrator. It's always fun when your team wins and this one was a solid win in the Lambeau tundra. This team is built to win: at home, on the road, in heat or in the arctic chill. Bring on those Panthers because they have a reckoning due them.
