GameDay: Harbaugh, Cain Shine At AT&T Pro-Am

Greetings from Pebble Beach and the AT&T Pro-Am. Going from the Super Bowl to a PGA tour stop is like going from Mardi Gras to Tombstone. For those who say Tiger Woods’ participation doesn’t matter I’ve got a half-empty press room to show you.

GameDay: Is The Window Closing For The 49ers?

Three days before the Super Bowl I was in the CBS compound and posed one final question to a producer. “What happens in the event of a power outage?” The producer’s response was an expression of disbelief as if to say, “Did you really just ask me that question?”

GameDay: Kaepernick Not The Answer For 49ers – Yet

Three weeks ago Colin Kaepernick could have been the caddy for John Daly. I mean, NOBODY knew who this guy was outside of the Bay Area. Suddenly, he’s Joe Montana. No, wait, he can run. He’s Steve Young!

GameDay: A’s Turn Back the Clock on the Coliseum

The Oakland A’s run into the postseason reminds us that it’s not always about a high payroll. Not always about luxury suites. Not always about what we don’t have, but rather what we do.

GameDay: Don’t Give Up On Resilient A’s Yet

Sunday night’s game two ended with Detroit reliever Al Alburquerque snagging a comebacker, and kissing the baseball before throwing it to first base for the final out. The kiss was seen as a classless act by some A’s player.

GameDay: Giants Missing Melky Now?

When Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera was sent packing along with his supply of steroids, I had Marty Lurie on Gameday. He thought the Giants would have to do something to compensate for losing a bat in the line-up that produced a .346 batting average, testosterone or no.

One more note on replacement officials, and let this be a memo to management everywhere.

GameDay: Great Weekend For Bay Area Teams, Can Raiders Contend?

What a weekend. The Giants are in prime position to win the West, the A’s are the greatest story in baseball, and the 49ers marched into Lambeau Field and sent a stern message that THEY are the team to beat in the NFC.
