Golden Nuggets: What a wonderful Superbowl

Good morning everyone. With the Superbowl over we officially move into draft season. But before that, I would like to take a moment to just express how overjoyed I am by the ending of the game. I am by no means the biggest Patriot supporter in the world, but seeing Seattle go down the way they did was so wonderful. The game itself was pretty forgettable for the most part, but the ending goes down as an instant classic in my book. Oh, and Seattle losing their composure at the end and starting a brawl was just the icing on the cake. The only thing better was the people trying to justify it after the fact.

When i was a younger fan, I used to love the off season almost as much as I did the regular season. The draft process fascinated me, free agency fascinated me. Some of it was that the 49ers were a terrible football team, and the off season presented them with a chance to turn their luck around if they did it right. Covering the team, even in a limited capacity like I do, has dimmed my enthusiasm somewhat. That is mostly do to the difficulty, at times, of conjuring up something to talk about. But even with all the horrible down time, I look forward to this off season. Once again, the 49ers find themselves outside of the elite teams trying to find their way back in. If they do the off season right, I see no reason why they can't make that leap To the links!
