Santa Con

There are Santa Cons all around that nation, on Saturday it took San Francisco by storm. Starting at City Hall, people dressed up in Santa costumes march around the city in a very rarely sober manner. Jumping from bar to bar, wearing just a Santa cap isn’t enough to fit in with this rowdy gang.

NBA is back on Christmas Day

With a long lockout delaying the beginning of the NBA season, the Warriors new Head Coach Mark Jackson had a little extra time to prepare his team for the season, as a first time head coach. As a former player, Jackson led both the Knicks and Pacers to multiple playoff appearances. Jackson was hired to bring that winning attitude to the Bay Area.

Other than Mark Jackson, the Warriors are yet to make any big off season transactions. Both Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry return to build on the good seasons last year, and the emerging Dorell Wright will be aiming to take the next step as an effective player in the NBA. In the front court they have a strong 3 in David Lee, Andres Biedrins, and Ekpe Udoh.

The Warriors open up the late season on Christmas Day against the Clippers who seem to be getting stronger the closer to season we get. The Warriors will be playing the last game of the day, on a day which features five games, all being aired on national television.

The Warriors get two preseason games against the Kings on the 17th and the 20th than get a five day break before their season opener.

Best of the West

Along with the undefeated Green Bay Packers, The San Francisco 49ers clinched their division and cemented their place in the 2011 Playoffs. At 10-2 the 49ers continue to fight for home-field advantage throughout, but are going to need a little help from the NFL best Pack-show. On a day where Frank Gore became all-time leading rusher in franchise history the 49ers demolished the St. Louis Rams on both sides of the field finishing the game with a 26-0 shutout.

As they continue to show their dominance on the field, Alex Smith is having a career best season. Since Harbaugh came on board to begin the season, the usually struggling Smith has found the light while enjoying the 10-2 record. They have secured at least one home game in the playoffs and are looking for more. A 1st round bye is very probable for them but must continue to play solid team football to win out. With 3 of the 4 remaining games left against their 3 division rivals, the toughest match up will be when the Steelers come to town 2 weeks from tonight in a huge Monday Night Football match up.

If the defense can put goose eggs across the board as they did on Sunday against a struggling Rams team they will have no problems. Led by Linebackers Patrick Willis and NaVarro Bowman, the 49er defense leads the league in rush defense and went on a mid season streak where they did not give up a touchdown in multiple games in a row.

9-1, Playoff Bound?

With a convincing win yesterday, the San Francisco 49ers have pushed their record to 9-1 and are now 2nd best in the league. Jim Harbaugh really has these guys playing together football with already tying the amount of wins they had last year.

I was at the game, and let me tell you, the fans really showed out to support their team. Even though it started as a rainy, cloudy, cold day, the fans showedout in full support. David Akers really struggled in the 1st half making only 3 field goals out of his 6 attempts while having to of those 3 misses blocked. Although it was a rough first half for them in terms of getting into the endzone, in the 2nd half Alex Smith picked it up right away.

Connecting with Wide Receiver Kyle Williams early in the 3rd quarter pushed the 49er lead to 16, and they would never look back.Fitzgerald would end up getting into the end zone one time in the game, it just wasn’t enough for the injury ridden Cardinals.

Here is a flashback video of what happened last year when the 49ers beat the Cardinals.
