Phew! They have arrived in our house, two pieces of thin card that bring a huge smile to my chubby face.
Yes my two tickets for the San Francisco 49ers v Denver Broncos are here and on my coffee table.
Despite both teams travelling to a different continent to play their week 8 game, it is billed as a 49ers home game.
With that in mind I was delighted to see 49ers workhorse running-back Frank Gore as the ticket star.
I had a bad feeling that 49ers quarterback, and the man that will cost Mike Singletary his job, Alex Smith would be on the tickets.
Gore is one of the hardest working running backs in the NFL, a player who plays with passion, guts and a nose for the endzone.
The former Miami Hurricane has only managed one season without injury since he was drafted in 2005, but despite that he has amassed 6,032 rushing yards (at an impressive 4.7 yards per run) and 2,115 receiving yards, resulting in 42 touchdowns.
In six games so far this season Gore has only managed three total touchdowns. This is not Frank’s fault, it is Alex ‘millstone’ Smith who has crippled the 49ers offensive production.
With under two weeks until I get to see Gore in the flesh, I only hope the man handing him the ball is not a former #1 pick in the NFL draft (and yes that includes you David Carr!).
