1. First, 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis retired. Then his rookie replacement, Chris Borland, called it a career. Now Justin Smith is riding off to his cowboy ranch? Either no one wants to play for the post-Jim Harbaugh 49ers, or team chief Jed York offers one mean pension plan they can’t refuse.
2. The San Francisco Giants were supposed to be bad, given they like to space out their World Series rings. Their pitching was washed up, their hitters were washed out. So, tell me again how they keep beating the Dodgers Something-to-Nothing while pulling within a swing of first place in the National League West?
3. Find an NBA team more fun to watch than these Golden State Warriors. Go ahead, we’ll wait.
