As many of you saw, the San Francisco 49ers tied the St. Louis Rams this weekend, which was awful because ties are boring and stupid. After all that buildup, all we got was the blandest outcome imaginable. Kind of like getting a necktie as a holiday present. So what’s the bigger letdown, a tie, or a tie?

|WOOOOO!||HIGHLY ANTICIPATED BUILDUP?||OH YEAH!|

|"I got drunk for nothing!"||ANGRY THOUGHT A FEW MINUTES LATER?||"I guess I'll wear this at work, which is a place I love going to all the time."|
|"Europeans love soccer, and they tie all the time!"||SLAPDASH ENCOURAGEMENT FROM OTHERS?||"Europeans love ties! They wear them all the time!"|
|Pfft. Yes.||RELATED TO ALEX SMITH'S CONCUSSION?||Wh-...no...?|
We'll just call it a tie

Tale Of The Tape: Football vs. Futbol
With the World Cup still going strong and the NFL just weeks away from getting started it seemed like a fun idea to compare the two sports that share the same name…sort of. From the global “futbol” to the American “football” these sports are two of the most popular in their own right. As somewhat of a disclaimer I will add that this Tale of the Tape is being written by an American, though I am a big soccer fan. That being said, let’s start the debate.
