    I hope your end of the day track is Bobby Bare's Detroit City. I still love that song.

    Tough day for a Niners fan. They almost pulled off an epic comeback but succumbed to stupid play calls on their final possession.

    Oh well, when do pitches and catchers report for spring training?

    It is a great song, but, with all respect to Bobby Bare, I would have preferred the version recorded by Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris. Better yet, play them both.
