Just a friendly reminder that football returns to Candlestick Park tomorrow for the regular preseason matchup between the Niners and the dirty, rotten Raiders from across the bay. The game will be Coach Harbaugh's first home game in Candlestick since signing on with the team back in January and all eyes are on QB Alex Smith who's got a short leash after last season's shoddy performance.

Over on CBS5, Dennis O'Donnell isn't buying Coach Harbaugh's threats to put rookie QB Colin Kaepernick behind the center, but in case Smith really drops the ball the Niners have also brough in Josh McCown (a former Raider himself). So don't be surprised if there's another rotating case of characters taking snaps this year.

Making things slightly more interesting for the yearly rivalry, Oakland Mayor Jean Quan and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee have placed a friendly wager on the game: whoever loses has to send the other a care package of their city's delights. If the Niners lose, Ed Lee will send dungeness crab, local produce, Ghirardelli chocolates and Philz coffee. If the Raiders lose, we suppose Ed Lee will receive a box of gently used hubcaps or something.

If you can't make it out to the game because $12 roundtrip Muni fare is too steep, or the flood of unwashed masses from Oakland scare you, it'll be broadcast live on CBS5 Bay Area at 5 p.m. and on the radio on KNBR 680/1050 AM radio. Or streaming on NFL.com if you sprung for the package deal.
