Reading time two minutes
Just catching our breath from the Super Bowl and here comes spring training. A's pitchers and catchers report Monday; Giants pitchers and catchers report Tuesday. By the following weekend, both teams will begin full workouts, and both will play their first spring games Feb. 23. The Giants will have their free fan fest Saturday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., at AT&T Park. The A's had their event Jan. 27.
Come on, 49ers fans and coach Jim Harbaugh, stop the whining. Sure, there might have been a missed call or two or three, but the bottom line is the 49ers had four shots at the end zone from inside the 10-yard line late in the game and couldn't score. Instead of stewing, you should be celebrating a great season. Only two teams get to the Super Bowl, remember.
The NBA schedule continues to be a mystery. On Monday night in Utah, the Kings wrapped up a six-game, 10-day trip and now they're off until Saturday, when they play the Jazz again in the first of four games in five nights before the All-Star break. The Kings are struggling enough without having to deal with such a brutal schedule, but maybe the time off this week and the five-day All-Star break will help them turn things around in the second half.
