The Soggy 49er Game

It was soggy, misty, and rainy for the entire 49er game... but hosting the NFC Championship at Candlestick Park and having the opportunity to be at such a close game was worth wearing the ugly oversized poncho.

The boys were so excited to be going... and we were convinced they could make this win.  Sadly, a few costly mistakes {and a couple of bad calls} ended their dream trip to the Super Bowl.

But regardless... it was exciting, overwhelming, and exhausting!  Losing in OT was sad... you could have heard a pen drop after that Williams fumble, but the truth of it all is that the Niners had a come back, Cinderella season.

Kristin Chenoweth sang the Star Spangled Banner, and Brad Paisley performed during half time.  It was neat to be there for that, too.
Grey and rainy... but it didn't stop us tailgaters... look at all those tents!
 TL and his brother... both in about 340 layers of clothing!
 Frank Gore came and said hello ;)  He's #21... our star running back.
*goosebumps*
 You can see Kristin on the jumbo screen... she performed right near us, but not close enough for a picture.
My throat and voice are still raw.  Not to mention, I woke up this morning with sore legs from jumping up and down and standing the entire game.  I think we only sat for about 1 minute of the entire game.

Such a horrible way to end the game and season... but we made it all the way there, and I think we can do it again next year!

Pretty sad that I've only been to a Raiders game, and I've lived near SF for the last 18 years! The only reason I went to a Raiders game was with cheerleading, we did the half time show. I would love to go to the 49ers game some time!

Someone told me something funny about them too. They said the difference between a 49ers and a Raiders game is at 49ers games, they throw wine and cheese, and at Raiders games, they throw beer and hot dogs!

Such a fun time though. My college's former coach is now a 49er's coach and I was pulling for him to make it to the Superbowl!

That's too bad they lost, I would've liked to have seen them go to the Super Bowl. I would've liked to have seen my beloved Broncos in there too but oh well! :)

It's a shame they lost. It sounds like it was fun anyway!
