I grew up in Humboldt County (no, I don't have any), along the coast, north of Eureka, CA (about 60 miles south of the Oregon border). Went to college in the area (Humboldt State) and moved to San Francisco not long after. I have worked in various publishing and content management jobs, including editing PBS NewsHour and other PBS shows for online viewing. I also taught ESL overseas in both the Czech Republic and England (trust me, their English is abominable) where finding a place to watch a Niner game could be downright challenging. I love music, film and sports—but not music or films about sports (the exceptions being Mojo Nixon's stunning rocker, "Not as Much as Football" and "Major League" still cracks me up).

    Thanks for the edits, James. I've been edited the opposite way in the past for the Chronicle and the Bee for the "The"/"the" capitalization, but I'll go with this way from now on. Thanks again!

    Thanks, James. I added in the Hoyer experience part based on career.

    To clarify I meant he has a ton of experience being in NFL locker rooms and different systems. Starting or not, he has been around for a while now.

    Hope that clears that point up.

    Thanks again, man!

    Thanks for the edit. "reaming" should have been remaining, but you go the gist with stay.

    On the speculating, I don't have a problem with if it's clear it's the author's and not portrayed as fact.
