Such a fun podcast with Peter Hartlaub, the pop culture critic for the San Francisco Chronicle. In case you don't know Hartlaub knows about all things San Francisco and Bay Area and he shared some awesome stories with Sal and Steiny.
Hartlaub, born and raised in San Francisco, has been a 49ers season-ticket holder for his whole life and he shares his perspective on Candlestick Park, the Joe Montana years and how he's feeling now.
He also shares his love for former Golden State Warriors owner Franklin Meuli, who is a big reason the Golden State Warriors are the Golden State Warriors. While the move to San Francisco is bittersweet, Hartlaub gives tremendous insight and perspective into the team and their arena history.
And so much more ...
The 49ers are a hot mess right now, which they've pretty much been since Jim Harbaugh and the team "mutually parted ways."
The only thing worse than the 49ers' situation might be owner Jed York's relationship with the Bay Area media. Simply put, there is no relationship there. Sal and Steiny talk about how York despises the Bay Area media and the Bay Area media despises York. It's obvious anytime you watch an interaction.
And how about this ... The Golden State Warriors are so good that nobody really seems to care. It almost feels like interest in the Warriors has never been lower. Warrior fans expect this team and expect this team to win almost all of the time. For a fanbase that has long been known as ultra-passionate, the base is pretty mellow these days.
Sal also talks about his discomfort with being in an uncomfortable situation.
