At the Cardinals vs. 49ers game I discovered that Santa follows the NFL and he is a 49ers fan. Really, it makes sense. It’s as simple as the colors red and gold. Plus, how could he resist a stadium called Candlestick that is surrounded by fog for his favorite reindeer, Rudolph?
Santa was a welcome sight in our section of the stands. He had rosy cheeks and his belly shook like a bowl full of jelly as he chuckled in response to Vernon Davis making a seemingly impossible catch. During half time the two of us had a moment to chat and I spoke with him about a friend of mine who has been a 49er fan for life and who is currently expecting her first baby. Lucky for me, he is a wiz when it comes to gift giving ideas. Here is a list of the ten best ideas he had for me, and his elves, while shopping for expecting parents or a young family of 49er fans.
