The Dirty Birds Aren’t Flying (to the Super Bowl)

Championship Win

Remember when I told you a couple of weeks ago how it was going to go down?  Well,  Hot Damn!!  I was right.  Those 49ers can really make a comeback. They scared me in the first half.  Actually it was the Falcons that scared me – they seemed invincible. Don’t even get me started about that Julio Jones fellow.

Although officially named “Super Bowl XLVII”, the game will be called the “Har-Bowl”.  In case you don’t follow football (WHAT!?), the 49ers coach and the Ravens coach are brothers. Their last name is Harbaugh. This cracks me up for some reason.

Which team will mom and pop Harbaugh root for this year?  That is what I am wanting to know. 😉

The Big Day For San Francisco

No matter what happens at Candlestick Park this afternoon – I am so proud of  “my boys” I could bust! I am already dressed out for the game and it’s only 11:00 am. I had to get dressed anyway, right? My little pre-game ritual helps me get into Game Mode. This is important to help the Force. Trust me.

A co-worker of mine is a 49er fan, but she is not allowed to watch their games anymore. She unfortunately made this comment to her mate: “I shouldn’t have watched the game. They always lose when I watch”.  She has not watched a live game since she opened her mouth. Her mate gives her live re-caps during commercials, but it’s not the same. Her mate assures her that the sacrifice she makes  is really appreciated, as he sends her to her room.  I feel so bad for her! I will admit that I’m secretly glad she’s not watching today’s game.

Not everyone in my family is a 49er fan. I don’t know exactly who these people are , because they act like 49er fans when they are around me. They are wrong, but they’re not stupid.

My 18 month old granddaughter is a 49er fan. Granted, she squeals “niners!” when she sees any football game on TV, no matter who is playing, but she knows who she is rooting for and that’s the important thing.  Bonus: she doesn’t drink beer. Her favorite blankie, binky and 49er bear is all she needs. Also, taking over grandma’s comfy chair is fun. Sometimes she will let me sit with her. I have to bring the cookies. 😉
