Kumbaya, Motherfuckers

Day One of the Super Bowl grab-ass corporate feeding frenzy got off to what can only be described as a love fest. In a format I[ve never seen before, but in my defense, I rarely watch this shit without the Niners in it, they brought out both teams at the same time, and they all seemed genuinely thrilled to see each other. Deion Sanders had Mahomes and Jimmy G on one side; and Richard Sherman and Honey Badger on the other. Deion talked of Mahomes’ killing it in the passing game and going against the Niner D. Platitudes and smiles all around.

Same with Travis Kelce and George Kittle being interviewed by Michael Irvin. Mutual respect, blah blah blah. Shanny related a story about losing a backpack with his playbook tablet and 40 super bowl tickets in it, and Koo-Koo-Ka-Choo said something, and my eyes started glazing over at that point. But the thing is, we have come a long way from the Steelers/Cowboys or Vikings/Raiders days where there was palpable bad blood between the teams. I guess it is understandable given the player movement, and the much higher danger factor of being crippled for life at any given moment.

Yeah, there are still some grudges, say Pittsburgh and Cleveland, or Aliq Talib/Michael Crabtree, but for the most part it is Kumbaya, folks. Hey, as long as we win, all is good.

    I thought it was kinda weird also with everyone saying nice things about the other. What a crock. It was a lot like ‘hi everyone I am just glad to be here’ bullshit. Bosa did let it slip that he was only out there because he had to be. At least that was real. Anyway, everytime these KC’s and 49ers shake hands they are truly measuring just how far to stick the knife, at least that is what I would do. I guess Michael Irving is our homy now.

    Sad news – former 9er Chris Doleman has passed WAY too soon.

    RIP Chris.

    Damm that Sucks!
    Always liked his game,
    and considered him a Purple Eater even if that was coined more in the 70’s..RIP Chris
    Damm always comes in 3’s but never expected 2 (Kobe) back to back this quickly..

    Bummer about Doleman !

  5. unca_chuck says:

    Man, that’s too bad. Didn’t know he was battling brain cancer. 58.

  6. NJ49er says:

    I have a cousin in Del Ray
    He says tickets are off the hook pricey
    Looking for anything booze and SB 9er related.

  7. 12th man says:

    Leaving for Miami tomorrow. Stoked to say the least. Going with my wife and 2 buddies, sitting in nose bleed but whatever , it’s my first SB.

    I trust in NJ’s numerology, it’s a sign!

    • alleykat69 says:

      12th that’s awesome 👏 going to the SB to cheer on a Niner Victory!!Safe travels! Man I’m jealous!
      As it get closer the more jacked up I get!
      I want that 6th SB title to tie Pats&Pitt for most ever and then get the 7th next year!!!

    • Winder says:

      Hope everyone has a wonderful time and don’t forget to help bring us back another ring.

  8. unca_chuck says:

    Ohhhhhh, fuck you sideways, 12th!!!!! SOOOO jealous! Have a great time! Take a shitload of pics and I’ll post ’em here. The ONE time the Super Bowl was here with the Niners (Stanfoo in 1984), I was living in Colorado. I did get to see all the shit around Super Bowl 50 as it was down the street from where I work, but that didn’t mean shit. Fuck. If I was there I don’t think I’d be able to sleep at all. Do shots for all of us back here in the bay area.

    Bring it home, Andy!!!!

  9. unca_chuck says:

    ROB!! How far from Miami are you? Id hit the parking lot and wait for the game to start. Get tickets cheap that way.

  10. unca_chuck says:

    Telling article about Richard Sherman’s decision to come west rather than go to Deetroit for more money.


  11. Winder says:

    I am tired of all the hype already. It kinda reminds me of a never ending infomercial. I hope the team had a good practice today and have the game plan pretty much down. i know they will continue to tweak it until the game starts but pretty sure the basics have been set and we are ready to go. i still like our chances.

  12. unca_chuck says:

    Barely seen anything. Just tired of the wait.

  13. alleykat69 says:

    I read where Shanny said they could of played this last Sunday.Were well prepared.Im sure they’re will be a few new tweaks and scenarios, but same with the Chiefs, both teams no each other well..

  14. unca_chuck says:

    I think they did most of the heavy lifting last week. 99 hours to kickoff!

  15. NJ49er says:

    Unless Rob moved, he’s on the Tampa side (Eddie’s Area) / Gulf Coast.
    Miami is on the Southern East Coast.
    Guessing about 4hrs drive time.
    Close enough to tailgate for me if I were there.

    Was trying to arrange a visit with my cousin in Delray, probably 40 mins from Miami, but he said the tickets were going in the $1200 range.
    Much as I’m a die hard, that’s just out of order.
    Party in my Man Cave with 9er fans, big screen, and all the necessary fix’ns is just as much fun.

    Gotta get #6 this time! 😀

    • rtfirefly says:

      I lived in Del Ray for a short time, in my Florida experimentation phase. I still regret moving back West from time to time. Place has an awful lot going for it. Just not an Eastern guy I guess.

  16. NJ49er says:

    12th, safe travels my friend!
    Loud and PROUD as always!
    6X 9ers = SB54 😀

    Rock the Hard Rock for the rest of us.
    We’ll be there in spirit!

  17. NJ49er says:

    Super Bowl BOOGIE time!

  18. NJ49er says:

    From Dolphins stadium on Sunday…We could be Heroes. Just for One Day.
    Go 9ers!!!

  19. 12th man says:

    Thanks guys!
    Just a reminder, last time the Niners won a SB was in Miami, 25 years ago!
    I really feel the Niners will win, that D is legendary.

    I’ve been lucky enough to catch all the games at Levi except 1 this year and I sit on the home side. I’ve haven’t seen a sideline like it since 1994 season.

    Those players EXPECT to win, to a man. If something goes wrong or they are behind there is no sign defeatism at all. Its extraordinary, and I’ve been to hundreds of home games.

    It feels like the 1994 season where the team was just so confidant. Jerry called it early on, and I think that’s why.
    Go Niners, feels good baby!

  20. unca_chuck says:

    12th, so cool you are there. I saw an interview with Eric Davis and they asked him about the ’94 Super Bowl game, “When did you feel like you had the game in hand?” And he said “After we beat Dallas”. They had NO doubt they were gonna win. I remember watching the Pittsburgh/SD game in the Stick parking lot and being a little disappointed that we didn’t get the Steelers.

    Woulda been a better game, but we woulda beat them as well. But man, like the Denver game in the 1989 season, you just KNEW they were gonna kill them.

    I don’t think we are gonna run away with it, but I really think we outlast them. Something like 35-24.

    KC be feelin’ a . . .
