Question of the Week
I asked Natalie what her favorite football team is. She said, “My favorite football team is the San francisco 49ers.” She also said that she has liked the 49ers since she could talk. I then asked her why she likes the 49ers. She said, “Because I grew up in San francisco and so did my family.” She told me, “We used to take lots of trips to San Francisco. One time my Aunt won tickets to a 49ers game. They were in the second row seats! My Aunt went to college with Collin Kapernick and was even friends with him. My grandma, Nancy, also knew him and his parents. They went to church together.
