% getting runner in from 3rd, <2 outs

Does anyone know where to find the stat about how often the Giants (and other teams) get the runner in from third with less than 2 outs? I feel like I've seen it in the past, but can't find it...

Hopefully the score in the real game will be something similar

Question about DH rules

4

It seems pretty clear that you can't move your DH into the field and replace with another DH - if your DH becomes a fielder, you lose the DH and your pitcher has to hit. What is less clear is if you can remove your DH, change a player from being a fielder to being a DH, and replace the fielder with a bench player. Anybody know the rule? Basically wondering if we can have Pablo DH for a while, then remove him, move Burrell from left to become the DH, and put Nate in defensively.

America Bowl - Presidents vs Super Bowls

I saw this on UniWatch and thought it was pretty cool. Thought some of the NN faithful might like to check it out. It's a cool blog that puts each of the 43 previous presidents in a matchup against each of the 43 previous Super Bowls. I have a feeling Steelers-Cards is gonna take it over W.

Vernon lookalike at Safeway

3

So I go to the Safeway on Shattuck and Rose in Berkeley all the time and there's a guy who works there who not only looks a little bit like Vernon Davis, but his name is actually Vernon. They don't look THAT much alike but they are both African-American, both have dreads, and a fairly similar face. Groug - you live in my neighborhood - do you know the guy I'm talking about. I'm telling you it cracks me up every time I buy groceries from him. Does anyone know who I'm talking about?

Advice for going to a game? Help!

9

So I never go to Niners games because I don't want to spend all that money for crappy seats when you can see better on TV - but... I came up on some free tickets for this Sunday's game so I need some advice. I'll be coming from Berkeley. What's the best way to get to the game? I assume driving. What's the best place to park and how much does it cost? Any tips for saving money? What is the best food at the stadium? Thanks and GO NINERS!!!!!!!

Should I change my signature?

10

So for a long time I've had "Still defending Rich Aurilia, and the Niners' classic unis" as my signature - Rich Aurilia because he's my adopted player on McCovey Chronicles, and the classic unis because I always wanted the Niners to go back to their old unis. Now that they've changed to something a lot closer to the throwbacks, should I still defend the classic unis? I mean, where are the sock stripes, and what's with the truncates stripes on the sleeves??? Or should I be happy with the change and get myself a new signature?

I finally got around to sending Paul Lukas an email telling him about my Mike Nolan Halloween costume, which I wrote about at NN here. Anyhow, he put it in the news ticker today. (It's about 1/3 of the way down and he mentions me by my alter ego, aka real name, Jamie Costello).

New Unis Photo Gallery

+

From 49ers.com - I still want to see a better look at the sleeve stripes, there's something funny going on with them. Overall I'm pretty happy with the new duds - I love the old red with the simple block numbers. I'm ok that they kept the newer gold color for the pants. I love that the red-white-red stripes are back on the helmet and pants and they switched back to the gray facemask. I wish they went back to sock stripes but I'm not surprised they didn't. One thing I don't like is the word-mark above the numbers. Not because I really have an issue with putting the word-mark there but more because I've never liked that specific mark - I wish they used the old school font instead.

OT - Going to Vegas

I know there are people on here that are much more familiar with Vegas than I am (Fooch, etc), so help me out. I'm going to Vegas next week and I need some insider info. I'm staying at the Monte Carlo. Here are my questions: -Any good places around the strip to get cheap eats? -Where can I find cheap tables (e.g. $5 blackjack) -Any can't miss shows? -If we're tired of casinos and the pool, what else is there to do during the day, during the night? -What's the best strip club? Oh forget it I'm going with my gf. -Other helpful info. Thanks!

OT - Corps vs. Core

14

I wanted to take some time to give a quick lesson about the word "corps." I've noticed a lot of people recently have been using the word "core" in place of "corps," especially when talking about the WR corps. The word "core" means "the central, innermost, or most essential part of anything." Corps, on the other hand, means "a group of persons associated or acting together." The word "corps" has been used often when describing units on a football team, much like it's used to describe the Marine Corps. Many people mistake the word for "core" because they are pronounced the same way, making them homophones. So I would request and recommend that everyone from this point forward use the correct word "corps" when referring to the receiving corps of the team. Just don't write "crops." Believe me, your fingers will try to make you.

Q: Matt do you know if we are still getting new uniforms next year? (M.Hanks) A: The 49ers have put their focus in other areas. The uniform issue has been put on the backburner. However, it's still something the club plans to address in the future. It's too late for the 49ers to have anything done for the 2009 season. The earliest the 49ers can have new uniforms is 2010.
