49ers' Alex Boone has risen from the depths of alcohol abuse

Good story, I'm glad we took a chance on him. He was always a high character person. A team leader, and very well liked even during his drinking days at Ohio State. Major props to him for turning his life around. He's come a long way.
cool story
Note to Harbaugh. Make sure to put Boone in a room that locks from the outside during Super Bowl week. Don't need a Barry Simms incident.
Thanks - really good article.
he's worked his arse off the last couple of seasons, kicked the habit, lost alot of pounds. Good for him.

What Did Barry Sims do? I thought that was Barret Robbins...

Sounds like a guy that can't be around alcohol, hope his teammates realize this and help him stay sober.
