Man I'll never forget all the reports happening that week one moment Harbaugh was talking to Baalke and Jed York, the next he was headed to Miami, then Michigan and then he was returning Stanford. That week was a hell of a wild goose chase and emotional roller coaster the webzone kept getting overloaded because of all the responses and reports coming in. Once the signing happened that was a hell of a relief and I was excited he was hired because I remember getting pissed we lost him to the dolphins and that we might have signed Josh McDaniels as HC. But thankfully Harbaugh became a 49er.
That week was pure meltdown!!! The zone at its absolute worst. Lot of garbage posting. But the right result in the end. And screw Miami!
I don't know about you guys but looking back, I loved that week. The emotions running through it, just... God. It was like a real life amazing soap opera. I remember reading all the posts about how the Miami owner had come down and now Jim had agreed to terms there and it was all over, then suddenly fivem inutes later "wait no nevermind lol" and then finally that moment where it was official that he was a 49er. Just great s**t.
I had been glued to my phone and twitter that entire week. Non stop. Going to bed at 3 in the morning, waking up at 5 am, on it just all the time. I decided to take a nap and was woke up 10 minutes later by my friend, "congrats on the signing" Was mad and happy at the same time. mad that the ONE time I decide to stop looking at Twitter, it happens. Happy because... well, look at what happened.
