Backatcha Lowell. I’m assuming a nice Sauvignon Blanc tonight.
Jed York also saw fit to Twitter Thanksgiving greetings to all. Thank you Jed. 49er fans everywhere are grateful for your
Hope you and yours enjoyed a wonderful day.

Hey Lowell, who was better JC Chavez? Or FM? Why?
FM would have beat JC Chavez, would have run, fought a defensive fight, outpointed him, never hurt him. The fight would have been a stinker. JCC would have wanted to kill him but would not have had the chance. Better matchups are FM and Ray Leonard or Thomas Hearns. Both would have beat him. Hearns might have knocked him out.
Speaking of boxing, who do you like in the Fury/Klitschko fight Lowell?
Jim Bancroft, I know nothing about these guys. Hardly follow boxing now. What a shame the sport has become.
“Creed” is a must see for boxing fans. Sylvester Stallone should finally get the acting Oscar denied him 40 years ago. Fight scenes are gruesome.
That is too bad. Can’t blame you at all, boxing has fallen on relatively hard times. I wasn’t around for the 1970s fights (well, born partway through) and even today to non-fans, Norton, Holmes, Frazier, Foreman, Leonard, Hagler and Hearns are names that are still recognized– and I can list others, but the Press Democrat has a character limit on replies.
Who knows any boxers today except Tyson, who’s been retired for over 10 years, and was slipping 10 years before that? Pacquiao and Mayweather were an event, but compared with Ali’s fights almost a blip. And I can’t/won’t get interested in UFC, which is too close to Roman gladiatorial fighting to suit me.
That leaves the 49ers, which is like watching Tyson / Spinks weekly.
