Happy 4th of July Folks!!
Robbie Williams the famed British boy-bander and badboy (alliteration much) throws a wildly successful charity soccer match every year. Robbie of course plays on a team filled with ex professional players and pits them against such physical specimens as unknown musicians from indie bands and Mike Myers of Austin Powers fame. Also, on the celebrity team is a famous foul-mouthed chef whom we all love to hate the one and only Gordon Ramsay. Much to his chagrin and our delight he gets clattered into during the game and seriously injures his back to the extent of having to be stretchered off. This is officially the best day ever for anyone who has ever been a contestant on Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen reality TV show.
Many were surprised when the 49ers took Illionis wide out AJ Jenkins with their first round pick in the draft this April. As a loyal, and long-serving member of #ninernation I can admit to screaming “WHO?!?” at the television. He doesn’t possess the size that a lot of scouts want out of WRs in the modern game. But, AJ has the blazing speed to make the “splash” plays the 49ers offense desperately needs to make it to the next level. Jenkins ran a 4.38 40-yd dash at this year’s scouting combine and displays exceptional quickness out of his cuts. Don’t take my word for it though! Watch the video kids. AJ has skills. And as they always say in football circles “the tape don’t lie”.
Hey all! Obviously this is a work in progress (to say the least). However, the focus of this site will be all things football related. While there are exciting stories throughout the world of pigskin, I believe that the west coast is the best coast. We will be offering in depth coverage of Pac-12 conference football and the amazing culture surrounding it. If you aren’t too worn out from all of Saturday’s gridiron action then join us Sundays for news, and analysis on the NFL’s famed NFC West division. So whether you are a Duck, a Trojan, a Sun Devil we have you covered. If you happen to be one of the 49er faithful, or unfortunately cheer for the lowly St. Louis Rams then make this your spot!
