Another Super Bowl Sunday is upon us--and the big question is--who are you cheering for? I used to be a 49'ers fan, back in the Joe Montana era, but lost interest for whatever reasons. And to me, a team from Baltimore should be the Colts--am I showing my age or what? So I really didn't care--but that sort off changed after hearing the story that Lee told me last night while we were eating dinner.
One of his co-workers told him that his wife's grandmother is a huge 49ers fan, and they decided to write a letter to the team on her behalf. They told them what a big fan she was and all they asked for was perhaps a team picture, an autograph, just something. She is in her 80's and they figured whatever they got, she would be thrilled with. You can imagine how surprised they were when a HUGE box showed up at their house, full of all sorts of 49'ers stuff--autographed pictures, shirts, hats--you name it. Grandma was tickled pink (or perhaps red and gold!) and as a result, Dave said he feels like he really should be rooting for them. I see his point! And what a sweet gesture on the part of whoever organized such a wonderful gift.
Have a great weekend everyone--and go nine-ers!!!
