Go 9ers, eh?

So I'm here in Canada on a Saturday night, watching a pre-season football game.  It's my beloved San Francisco 49ers playing at home.  They are playing the Oakland Raiders, and I am watching the game on KTLA - TV out of Los Angeles on our digital cable.  It takes some getting used to.

I'm thinking, "Wow, this is kind of weird." And then, who should show up for the Raiders at quarterback but Jeff Garcia!  Former 49er, yes. But also --- and this closes the circle --- former Calgary Stampeder.

Garcia didn't disappoint: he went right out there and threw an interception on third and long.
