The second wife

Congrats to Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers for taking it to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers Sunday in frigid Lambeau Field, 23-20. Give Aaron, who must still be smarting from that recently broken collarbone, credit for keeping the Packers in it. But once again, Colin was able to beat them with his head, arm and legs – a complete performance.

Maybe now we can stop hearing about how the Niners made a mistake getting rid of QB Alex Smith (whose Kansas City Chiefs lost, by the way, Saturday) and keeping Colin. It’s like the guy who’s been divorced and remarried for 20 years and all his family and friends can do is talk about what a great woman the first wife was.

Look, it’s over. As Hugh Grant would say, “That train has sailed.”

Right into Colin-land – a country in which I’m happy to dwell.
