I had to measure the punts myself from the play-by-play in the box score, so I used net yardage from the punting play to the opponent's first down. Is this how punts are measured?

Don't have confidence-inspiring responses to any of those calls at the ready. So, a few alternate calls:

- First overtime Super Bowl

- Game will hinge on the leg of David Akers (for better or worse)

- Alex Smith needs to be ready to go in

- Ted Ginn Jr. will have an impact

Blackout!

posted by grum@work at 08:43 PM on February 03

1) I may nab the Costanza with a clean sweep of my picks this week.
2) I doomed the 49ers to not winning by picking them across the board this week.

TREMBLE BEFORE MY MIGHTY POWERS AND DESPAIR YE MORTALS!

Alright, all I need now is two field goals by the 69ers and I'm the greatest sports prognosticator of all time.

posted by NoMich at 10:23 PM on February 03

BTW, the blackout was caused by Vegas mobsters.

Why?

Heavy betting was on the Niners -4, Vegas mobsters were sitting real pretty prior to the blackout. Lots of smiling bookmakers after this one.

After their great third quarter tie-in, this better be the new Star Trek movie, "Into Darkness."

Wonder if the mob sent a bottle of Scotch to the Field Judge who saw the hold on Crabtree on the 4th down fade route and chose to ignore it.
