New, 531 comments

Your weekend MVPs: 1) Eric Anderson, 2) Jill Rushin, 3) Angela Randazzo, 4) Alex Clark, 5) TRUMAN THE DAMN TIGER. Though I guess you could put Gary Pinkel in there somewhere as well...

National champ.

Still waiting for a little more information, I guess, but Niners Nation has a pretty good stream going regarding Aldon Smith's latest, confusing incident. Just waiting for a big, "Never mind, guys! This was all just a big misunderstanding!" press conference from the LAPD. Yep. Just waiting for that.

1. Moving on

I'll have a bigger piece up soon about football and scrimmages and the impact of DGB's dismissal, but as we begin moving on, here are a few links. I didn't post every "He's gone!" link I found because ... well, because I didn't want to.
