The field here is light brown. Think the burnt-out East Bay hills in the dead of summer. There is no green here. I’m told the field is part grass, part artificial stuff. Whatever it is it’s light brown.

    Please explain why a 12- win team has to go on the road to play a 8-win team.

    You want a home game then win your division.

    Btw Lowell, what gear did you decide to wear: down parka, thermal underwear, wool socks, wool knit hat, ski gloves, insulated boots? Vitally important to keep your feet warm – if they get cold the other gear won’t matter, you’re doomed.

    Steve, I went to Montclair Sports in Oakland. My neighbor Tom Revelli, a great guy, owns it. I bought a Marmot coat. Warm. Also an underlayer of warm stuff, new gloves and a thing to cover my face. I’m suited up for the Yukon.

    How are the players staying warm during the TV timeouts?

    lameduck, they wear big coats and they jump around. I don’t know if the bench is heated and from where I’m sitting — far away — I can’t see if there are blowers.

    Lowell, did you spend more on clothes than it would have cost for your paper to send you to Arizona last week?

    Marmot coats have goose down lining and are similar to but more fashionable than ski jackets .Nice

    LOL Lowell regarding the brown grass. I had to explain to my teenager why the grass is brown in Wisconsin in the middle of winter. While we are from Wisconsin, we only visit during warm weather, so my children have only known California weather. It was interesting to see the field get darker (muddier) in a strip down the middle, where the cleats were landing most of the time. In areas outside of the stadium, the grass would be covered with snow.

    Gary, if the 49ers don’t want to travel they should win their division, It all tends to work out in the end anyway…The better team won!

    The grass at the Stick is much better, & the grass at Lambeau is dirt! But Lambeau is an Historic Stadium, much like the Stick, its just that the fans in GB respect their team tradition, & history more.
