I was trying to remind a room full of screaming Niner fans that there was still 1:30 left in the game and it wasn't over. And, I was right. The game didn't end with that catch. It ended with a horse-collar touchdown saving tackle by Eric Wright and a fumble by Danny White. They almost came right back on us. Almost nobody seems to remember that.
good job, I forgot about that. I had a heart attack watching that. There is a real good book out about that game and the catch and how the fortunes of two teams were changed that day! thank you for all the good response to this post

6 years old. I remember watching the game and winning but had no idea of the significance. Obviously didn't know the history, prior struggles, previosu games against the Cowboys. I just natually thought we won every game with Joe Montana as QB.

Agree. It was an unscripted eruption of euphoria. NFL would never let that happen today. One true, minor buzz kill. Went to shake Freddie Solomon's hand as he was running off the field and he said "Don't touch me, Mo**** Fu****." He was just being defensive, though. It was a chaotic mob scene and Solomon was actually a pretty small guy. I think I was taller as an 8th grader.

Look at the captivated expressions of the cops and the journalists. That's a great picture. Let's go Niners! The Saints can be beaten!
Upper Box
Section 12

IWAS 10years old, sitting with my Dad. My Grandparents and Great Aunt & Uncle were a few sections down. 1st ever "tears of joys."

I begged my dad to take me onto the field so I could help carry Ronnie too. (I eventually stormed the field my Sr. year in HS after we crushed Everrett and the lams n the NFC title game.)


Also, I remember when someone set off what only could have been an M-1000 in that area where the ambulance was parked (same north-east corner as The Catch, itself.) Not sure if it was before the game, or maybe even during a 2nd half timeout. Anyone there remember when that was set off?

You can kiss my hairy spot Saturday, if you're man enough to show. I'll be waiting in UB Section 26 Row C seat 5.
