Video: 'Niner Empire' has much to cheer

SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco 49ers are looking good early against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

That means Joe Leonor and the rest of the "Niner Empire" are basking not only in the warm sunshine here at Candlestick Park, but also in the prospect of a potential 4-1 record to open the Jim Harbaugh era (the 49ers lead, 14-3, as I write this).

A big thanks to Joe and his crew for welcoming me to their tailgating extravaganza near M pole at Gate 3. Here's hoping the camaraderie comes through in the video we shot.
