Aldon Smith

49ers week in review, plus my appearance on ESPN!

I’m pretty much tapped out. It’s still over 24 hours away, and I’ve been overanalyzing the NFC Championship game so much that I’m starting to see the “Manning Face” wherever I go.

Hit the corner store for a 40 oz and some bubble gum (just kidding, it was a 6-pack), and the clerk gave me the Manning Face. Buzzer went off in my apartment and I didn’t get up in time to let the UPS guy in the building, so he had to buzz twice — total Manning Face from the UPS guy. Questioned my wife about why we’ve received shipments from Amazon and/or Betsy Johnson every day since 2012 began…

Manning Face.

You can see how this would be a problem.

In case you missed the avalanche of 49ers coverage on BASG, this post will get you up to speed. In other words, this post is the equivalent of a BASG clip show — with a little radio bonus!

I lost my voice on Saturday and never fully regained it until about Wednesday. I still went on AM 680 (ESPN 680 in Louisville, KY with Jason Anderson, not KNBR) on Monday and talked Niners for a few minutes. [audio:|titles=BASG on ESPN 680 Louisville with Jason Anderson]
