Yes, I am going to New Orleans to cheer on my Niners! I am thrilled, excited and beyond surprised. I was set to watch the game at home or at some-one’s Super Bowl Party. But I was so honored and surprised to be invited to join my friend as part of her group of family and friends. I am still pinching myself.
After 18 long seasons, the San Francisco Forty Niners will make an appearance in the Super Bowl 47. Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, the excitement and pride is evident and tangible. For the many Faithful who have supported the Niners during the 18 year drought this Super Bowl trip means more than word can express.
I don’t mind gloating. Yes, I repeat, gloating, because after witnessing Colin Kaepernick make his first start as the Niners quarterback in a Monday Night game December against the Bears, I said he was something special. I have never ever gone out and purchased a player jersey until they have retired with great careers, the only jersey I own is a Ronnie Lott jersey.
But I told my husband after that game that I was very tempted to get a number 7 jersey, that how impressed I was with this young man. I knew he could very well be the next 49ers superstar quarterback

I must admit, last week’s wild card games were a little disappointing.
The games were not that close, there were no last minute heroics, no great moments of suspense and drama. The best game of the weekend was the NFC wild card, Seahawks at Washington.The Redskins started out by scoring twice and leading in the first quarter 14-0. It was my second opportunity to watch RGIII and I was happy to see him moving around in spite of his brace. But that lead and RGIII’s mobility disappeared rapidly as the game progressed. As you know he was hurt late in the game and has had knee surgery. He is a talented young man, I hope he can recover and be as electrifying as he has been this rookie season next year.
Wild card weekend is my favorite NFL weekend.
Every game is important. Every game’s outcome could have ramifications that reach beyond the final score. Teams that lose this weekend will turn their attentions inward as they review players and staff. For some players and coaches these final games are live auditions for their future teams. All these ingredients increase the already elevated level of anticipation and excitement. Not to mention a little thing called money, every player and coach is hoping to earn playoff bonus money.
