All this CBA talk has got me nervous.
No NFL? Are they nuts? The disappearing act of the NFL and all that goes with it (fantasy football, tail-gating, spectacular plays, trash-talk, touchdown celebrations, throwback jerseys, Jon Gruden commentary, Thursday night football, Saturday night football, Sunday night football, Monday night football, Superbowl) would make me very sad.
And feeling sad makes me miss the last time my San Francisco 49ers won the Super Bowl and the undeniable and unattainable feelings of warmth, love, and joy that comes with being a superfan of a super team.
So, to pass the time and override the negative and ugly side of contract negotiations, I present to you the 5 feelings of joy that I miss since the Red and Gold last hoisted the Vince Lombardi trophy.
