Field of Links: Vernon Davis demonstrates Olympic Curling, Kap rooting for Broncos

Jan 30, 2014, 10:20 AM PST

The NFL season is effectively over for 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, which means he can stop curling barbells, and return to his true love — Olympic Curling. Davis is once again the honorary captain of the U.S. curling team and he showed off his skills on the Arsenio Hall Show.

— Colin Kaepernick lashed out at Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman in a recent interview with the New York Post. The typically reserved quarterback didn’t pull any punches in response to Sherman’s infamous postgame rant. Here are some of the highlights:

Like many 49ers fans, Colin Kaepernick is clearly rooting for the Broncos on Sunday.

— While Kap and Sherman rake in money from Beats by Dre endorsements, Oakland Raiders wide receiver Rod Streater is calling “BS” in an epic Beats spoof ad.

The San Jose Sharks fired off a franchise-record 59 shots of goal and NONE of them went into the net… 

— Andre Iguodala was on hand to watch as his (1) Arizona Wildcats were nearly upset by the Stanford Cardinal. After the 60-57 win, Iguodala joined the victorious Wildcats players in the locker room.

Time for some links from the wide world of sports.
