There was really only one story from yesterday. The 49ers announced a partnership deal with Levi Strauss in regards to their new stadium in Santa Clara. Many had hinted that this deal might be the one we eventually see, seeing as the brand is a local company and a national icon. $220 million dollars for 20 years is a lot of money, and will pay 14% of Colin Kaepernick's future contract (I kid!!!). Since naming rights and sponsorship deals, while important, bore me to no end, I'll get into the links. Levi Strauss stuff at the top, the other links at the bottom.
