Golden Nuggets: Candlestick to host final event Saturday

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Saturday, July 12, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Good morning everyone, today will be a sad one. Candlestick will be hosting its final event, the "Legends of Candlestick" flag football game. The game will feature a team of 49ers legends playing with a group of opposing legends led By Dan Marino. As interesting as that is though, It's really only notable for the fact that after this, the stadium will host no more events until its demolition in 2015.

I was lucky enough to attend the US soccer match against Azerbaijan a few months ago for one last hurrah, but some of my fondest childhood memories took place at the Stick. The Jeff Garcia and Terrell Owens comeback vs the Giants in 2002, the playoff victory over the Saints in 2012, and many more great memories. I am beyond stoked for the new stadium, but Candlestick will always have a place in my memories.

Aside from that, there really wasn't a ton of other news Friday. Michael Crabtree is sick of talking about Richard Sherman, and the 49ers red shirt strategy seems to be gaining popularity around the league. There was another really nice article on Bruce Ellington in what seems to be becoming a trend. He seems like a really easy guy to root for and has a nice back story. Well, I guess we should get to those links.
