Not sure whether I ate turkey, duck or chicken tonight. All kind of blended together in a meat pile. #turducken

My brother-in-law, determined not to become another Thanksgiving deep fryer statistic ...

I took a few photos of classic satin jackets at yesterday's 49ers "game." This was the winner ...

Not pleased w/ the #49ers tie. (Wife just happy cops didn't pepper spray her in the face this time.)

Half my #49ers section is old dudes in gold satin jackets. Guessing most will be priced out in Santa Clara.

I usually put card stunt in the same category as The Wave, but this was nice. Good job #49ers.
