Good morning ladies and gentlemen. I think, at this point, I'm contractually obligated to bring you the Golden Nuggets late and I'm not sure what I can do to fix this. As usual, I don't have a great excuse for this, but since I've said "it's because of aliens," at least three times on this site in three days, I'll go ahead and use it here as well.
As far as the San Francisco 49ers go, one of the bigger pieces of interesting news was the interview Aldon Smith gave over at CSN Bay Area. Obviously, Smith didn't come out with anything heavy that should really dominate the headlines or anything, but I think what he said -- regarding the 49ers supporting him and all of that -- is at least interesting. It's definitely worth a read so make sure you check that out.
Anyway, let's get on to your links, shall we?
