Report: 49ers were Tom Brady's No. 1 choice, team won't pursue him

  Report: 49ers were Tom Brady's No. 1 choice, team won't pursue him The Tom Brady rumors involving the 49ers can stop for now. Chris Simms of Pro Football Talk on Sunday reported that while the 49ers were on Brady’s list of desired destinations in free agency, the team won’t pursue the 42-year-old quarterback. Via PFT’s Mike Florio: “It was Tom Brady’s No. 1 choice . . . to go to San Francisco and be the starting quarterback,” Simms says, adding that the 49ers eventually declined to pursue Brady. It never seemed particularly reasonable for the 49ers to move on from Jimmy Garoppolo after one full season as a starter in which he went 13-3 and took the team to a Super Bowl while posting better numbers than Brady.

But this time he let Buckner play the field. With two outs and the bases empty, trailing by two runs In a 2011 interview with The New York Times , McNamara said he had no regrets about leaving At a news conference after his pitch, Buckner referred to the emphasis on his error as “the ugly part of

Erika Cave-Miller of Nassau County, New York , blasted Trump over remarks that Americans should return to work by Easter after he husband died of coronavirus. Cave-Miller said the situation is 'not a game ' and that the U. S . is still in the middle of the global pandemic.

One of the celebrity deaths that drew a lot of discussion on Twitter Friday actually happened 10 months ago. Twitter blew up with a lot of people posting “RIP Bill Buckner,” but the curious thing there is that Buckner’s death (at age 69 after a battle with Lewy body dementia) actually happened last May. But it got a lot of discussion Friday as if it was new, and one key source there appears to be this “Oh no” tweet of an ESPN story (from May 27, 2019) from New York Times political reporter Maggie Haberman:

Haberman has 1.26 million followers on Twitter, so her tweet was seen by a lot of people, and it led to a whole lot of tweets acting as if Buckner’s death was new. However, it also led to a lot of people commenting that it wasn’t new:

For her part, Haberman sent this follow-up tweet:

It’s somewhat understandable why many people started tweeting about this as if it was new following Haberman’s tweet; she certainly appeared to present this as new news, and if people didn’t know or remember that Buckner had passed away last year, that would seem like notable news. And even a click-through to the story wouldn’t necessarily stop that without a detailed look at it; while it’s labeled as May 27, 2019, a quick glance could mistake that for today’s date of March 27, 2020.

What’s more curious is how this old story wound up on Haberman’s radar, and why she thought it was new at first. And we don’t have any answers there right now. But at any rate, this led to a lot of RIP tweets about Bill Buckner 10 months after his death.
