We've been blessed here in the Bay. The Sports Gods have granted us a cornucopia of sports ecstasy. There've been dreamlike successes--from the Giants' championship to the 49ers Super Bowl run. But more than that, there've been epic performances: Matt Cain's perfect game; Pablo Sandoval's three home ... More >>
Steph Curry's ballin'. Mark Jackson's preaching. Klay Thompson's shooting. Harrison Barnes is dunking. Andrew Bogut's blocking. Kent Bazemore's dancing. And Andris Biedrins is looking tan as ever. There's much reason for excitement in G-State.

There are plenty of legitimate reasons the 49ers lost the Super Bowl.
The 49ers couldn't stop the Ravens on 3rd down. The Ravens offensive line dominated the 49ers defensive line, which appeared helpless on every short yardage first down conversion. Donte Whitner was targeted and exposed as a marg ... More >>
Ah, the misguided marketing efforts of major corporations -- like this rather stupid promotion from JELL-O for sad 49ers fans.
"While San Francisco may not have won the trophy in tonight's big game, they will be getting a cup... of JELL-O pudding," begins the press release, which promises cups of f ... More >>
Super Bowl weekend is not yet an official national holiday, so at some point this morning, the great majority of San Francisco adults had to toss off the covers, grit through the behind-the-eyes headache, pull on some pants, and step into a cold, cold world.
This week, we will hear lots of calls fo ... More >>
Awwww well this is kind of adorable. Apparently 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is a professed fan of Red Robin, and the chain has taken out an ad in the Chronicle offering him free food for life if the 49ers win the Super Bowl on Sunday. Even better, Red Robins in the Bay Area will be offering 2 ... More >>
The Niners' NFC Championship game against the Atlanta Falcons features a rarity in football gambling: the Falcons, the home team and the NFC's number one seed, will play the game as the underdog.
When the line opened on Monday morning, San Francisco was a 3-point favorite. By Tuesday evening, the ... More >>
At some point during this NFL season, it became clear that the league is changing, the limits of playing quarterback quickly expanding: young athletes equally threatening through the air and on the ground, improvising their steps, confounding defenses with fakes and jukes.

With the New Year just hours away, we can finally say it without fear of a buzzer-beating jinx: 2012 marks The Year of the Bay Area Sports Renaissance.
These things tend to come in cycles. The Bay's Age of Terrible Sports was a long, cold winter. Game Six in '02 was the first snow, and the blizzar ... More >>
Initially, the concussion that cost Alex Smith his starting position with the 49ers looked like the result of a textbook Smith play. With a minute and a half left in the first quarter of last month's contest against St. Louis, Smith dropped back to pass, panicked without a second's hesitation when h ... More >>
The intriguing news that San Francisco may indeed be Peyton's Place is that rarest of things -- a true all-or-nothing gamble. There is no in-between when it comes to signing -- or perhaps even chasing -- Peyton Manning. Either the 49ers will contend for a title or the aging, brittle Manning ... More >>
Do the Vitamin Water people think this is going to help move the product? For San Francisco sports fans, the news that Carlos Beltran may soon be heading to town was tempered somewhat by the fact he could conceivably be rooming with Alex Smith. For parts of six maddening years, Smith has been the ... More >>
