What can you say about Joe Tobin that hasn’t already been said somewhere in Philadelphia? Joe and I started stand-up around the same time and he’s consistently one of the smartest and funniest comedians in the Bay. Joe immediately adds class and professionalism to any show he’s a part of. He’s probably performed more than any other comedian at The Romane Event has been my guest-host a handful of times. I am truly honored that he will be performing in The Romane Event - 9 Year Anniversary and Grand Hiatus!

Why I need the Niners To Win on Sunday

I grew up a Detroit Lion’s fan. If you talk to any Lion’s fan every year is “the year”. In my life time that year has never happened. Their new head coach has more playoff appearances than the entire Lion’s organization has had in its life time. 

When I moved to SF in 1997 I was really excited to have a home NFL Team that had a legendary past, with Super Bowl wins and a veteran group of guys that could take us back. Then Steve Young almost died from his 175th concussion and Jerry Rice played for the Raiders. But I still didn’t lose hope. The 2000’s happened. Jeff Garcia. Tim Rattay. Singletary. 3-12 seasons. 

All of this aside the thruth is that I HATE the Seahawks like a Republican hates the truth about global warming. I want to shut up the Seattle fans so much that they’ll cry out of their surely callused ear holes. A really quiet cry. A faint sniffle or a wimper. I want the Seattle team to file a grievance with the NFL that surely our team had been doped up by none other than Alex Rodriguez himself.

If we win on Sunday I really think we have every opportunity to beat either Sir Manning or Mr Brady. I need a SF Super Bowl win because I need something else on my resume in the “special skills” section.
