Was That a Real 49er Game?

I wasn’t expecting this – it didn’t even feel like football.  49er-logo

Now I’ve been in the mood for football for months. This week I have worn all of my 49er shirts. Today I was so jazzed about tonight’s game that I reminded everyone I dealt with while running errands in town to watch it.  Most people had no clue pre-season was even starting and I was happy to fill them in.

Then, as I watched the game, it didn’t feel real to me. Something wasn’t right, maybe a few things even. Get this – I was more bothered by the fact it didn’t feel like football, then watching Denver beat us.

See what I mean? That is not me.

I planned to post about tonight’s game, but I didn’t have anything interesting to say. I’m staring at the blank “New Post” form, uninspired. And then, as if a lightening bolt zapped my brain, I FIGURED IT OUT!  It’s not often that I am struck by sudden insight (or lightening), so I had to take a break and do a little happy dance, then get myself a soda before returning to my blank post and telling y’all about it.  😉

Reasons tonight’s game did not feel right:

  1. Who are those people?  The only player’s I knew played in the 1st possession. Then they left the field and strangers came on. I knew there were new player’s and rookies coming aboard, that happens every year. I don’t remember so many new names and faces all at once. Am I getting old, or are we firing more people in the off-season?
  2. What happened to Coach?  He looks like Jim Harbaugh, but he’s either been swapped out by aliens or put on some serious medication.
  3. Where are the fans?  Have the stadium folks started selling the Candlestick Park’s seats already?  So sad to see so many empty spaces…
  4. Film Crew.  Someone please tell the cameraman that he’s supposed to be filming the game and not the cheerleaders. This must be pre-season for cheerleaders also – there were so freaking many of them.
  5. Peyton Manning.  If I wanted to constantly see all his stats, interviews and re-winded plays, I’d be a Bronco’s fan.

Whew! I feel better now. Thanks for listening.  🙂
