Reading time, twominutes:
If the Ravens' Joe Flacco was the Super Bowl MVP and signed the big contract, why is the 49ers' Colin Kaepernick (Turlock) scoring all the big media gigs?
Could it be that Kaepernick's coolness factor outweighs everything else?
The Seahawks acquire Percy Harvin only to see the 49ers trump it a few hours later with Anquan Boldin. It seems Jim Harbaugh's life-mission is to stalk Pete Carroll.
Smart move by the 49ers. Boldin can't beat them anymore.
49er fans will miss Delanie Walker's versatility. They won't miss his hands.
And speaking of bad hands: Farewell, DHB (Darrius Heyward-Bey).
The Raiders' unloading Heyward-Bey and Michael Huff means a further cutting-of-ties with the late Al Davis.
Dan Gonsalves' funeral was attended by many Modesto city coaches and administrators. A well-deserved tribute.
Methinks local sports fans don't totally comprehend the degree of the feat: Israel Saavedra, Modesto High freshman, state wrestling champion.
When you work your way through the family fortune while running a franchise into the ground: The Maloofs.
Pacific's Bob Thomason (Escalon, Turlock, Columbia, Cal State Stanislaus) will finish his first-class career in the NCAA Tournament. Sounds right.
The Tigers' first NCAA appearance since 2006 will spice Selection Sunday, which usually doesn't need much spicing.
Bracket genius Joe Lunardi says Cal is in good shape for a berth, but the Golden Bears should be nervous.
Wishing a good rehab to last year's Sac-Joaquin Section Masters long jump champion Shea Taylor (Grace Davis), who suffered a torn ACL while competing in her first pentathlon for BYU.
Colgate coach Matt Langel, who watched his prospect John Fenton (Central Catholic) score 28 points in his final game: "He's got a bright future with us. Hopefully, he'll bring performances like that to Hamilton (NY)."
The California Community College basketball finals will wrap up today at Cosumnes River. The team missing is the Fresno City men (two titles in the last six years).
The NCAA Tournament won't feel the same without the late Rick Majerus, a basketball genius and a very complex man beyond the TV jokes.
San Jose State's George Nessman was fired two years after he accomplished the near-impossible a winning record for the Spartans, with all due thanks to Adrian Oliver (Modesto Christian) and Justin Graham (Ripon).
You could feel the Giants' braintrust fretting through that Santiago Casilla (Dominican Republic) pitching to Angel Pagan (Puerto Rico) at-bat during the WBC.
Wonder how that WBC Final Four will play in San Francisco without the Americans.
Tim Lincecum sans the hair won't look right until he starts winning.
Just re-read that stat and it's still amazing: 15 walkoff hits last year by the Athletics.
Fans don't realize that the Kings' DeMarcus Cousins is just misunderstood over ... and over ... and over ... and over ... zzzzzz.
The NFL may abandon the "tuck rule." Raider Nation, you may now raise your torches and pitchforks and storm the castle.
Just a hunch: Kaepernick would give up that chat with Michelle Obama for a TD on that last set of downs in New Orleans.
