Down By The Bay: Battle Of The Bay

Down by the Bay is a daily catch-up of Bay Area sports action from the previous day. It's here on SB Nation Bay Area every morning at the same time, and it's the first thing you should be reading to catch up on the San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders, San Francisco Giants, Oakland A's, San Jose Sharks and Golden State Warriors. After the jump is all you need to know, so make it and let's get to it. When I say jump, jump. So, uh, jump, right now.

Wow, wow, wow. What a game, honestly. I don't even know ... wow. Double rainbow. Etcetera. McCovey Chronicles has a hugely entertaining postgame thread for your perusal and participation. Love the image.

Niners Nation took a look at the betting lines regarding games started by quarterback Alex Smith. Rather, they examine the fact that it might be wise to bet on Alex, who knows? I won't do it, personally. On top of that, they had their Madden "simulation," post.

Silver and Black Pride took a quick look at one of the matchups for today's game between the 49ers and Raiders: the battle of tight ends. Vernon Davis and Zach Miller are two of the premier tight ends in the NFL, should be exciting to see who has a better day.

Ugly loss for the Sharks last night but it was nothing wholly detrimental. I would have liked to have seen a win, obviously, but oh well. The most worrying thing is definitely the goalie situation. Gotta make sure that's working. Fear The Fin has their postgame thread and recap.

Cal Bears

Not a good day for Cal yesterday, though I didn't get to catch what I understand was a pretty ugly game. California Golden blogs has us covered though, with a postgame thread and then something with a little more substance later on in the night. In between all of that, an update on Cal Volleyball. Volleyball is one of my guilty pleasures.
