Golden Nuggets: The Pro Bowl is here ... yay?

Sunday, January 25th, 2015 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning folks. The moment you've all been waiting for is finally here. The biggest football game of the season is just about upon us: the 2015 Pro Bowl! Hell yeah!

God, I hate the Pro Bowl with a fiery passion. I'd prefer a skills competition and random hijinks between the players honored than watch the game. In fact, I haven't watched more than a few minutes of the games each year and this year I hope to watch even less. Of course, that's false hope, as I have to cover the game for SB Nation, but it is what it is.

At any rate, there was some excellent news on Saturday: Lane Kiffin is staying with Alabama. I'm honestly a little shocked that he was being considered at all, considering his extensive history of cheating and generally being a turd -- something the San Francisco 49ers insist is something they don't want to associate with. The 49ers are better without him.

Onto your links for the day.
