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.
Please explain to me what happened yesterday. I head the Giants won, but I also heard there was a total of eighteen points in the game. Is there any truth to that statement? Didn't think so. I'm going to assume it's not true. Lalalalala ... Anyway, McCovey Chronicles has a postgame thread for your elation.

Well, the 49ers are in London right now gearing up for a showdown with the struggling Denver Broncos. Niners Nation had a practice participation injury report for the Niners specifically, as the Broncos have yet to make the trip. They also had a post about Troy Smith being the starting quarterback in the game, and then took a look at whether or not that means they have a better chance to win.

Rule of Tree took a look at some of Washington's players in preparation for the upcoming game this weekend in Seattle, and then had a post about Chasson Randle choosing Stanford. That's a huge plus, in my opinion.
California Golden Blogs had a Q&A with their opposition, Building the Dam, leading up to the weekend's matchup. Good read. They also had a good bit about Cal Men's basketball and their open practice. Plus a ton of other pieces, so just head over there, there's way more each day than I can even link to.
