First 49er game I ever went to in 1985 (teenager), a MNF game vs Seahawks...me & a buddy were there super early, hanging out in the stands down by the baseball dugouts, and some stadium worker dude asked us if we wanted to come down on the field to fill balloons with helium (these were going to be released in pre-game festivities).
We said hell yeah, and once we were done no one said anything so we just stayed down there...sat on the bench in the dugout and talked to a bunch of different guys coming in/out of locker room...Wendell Tyler, Mike Wilson, Fred Dean Michael Carter, Rice, Lott, Montana, Dwight Clark...this was before the specialized gloves they have today, it was pretty cold and Clark had on scuba gloves that he wore during the game.
Anyway, we just stayed in the background on the sidelines, and it wasn't until after introductions and just before kickoff that someone realized we didn't belong there and told us to get back in the stands. Pre-9/11 of course, these days they probably would've called a SWAT team.
Over the years through work, civic/sports organizations, friends, and by chance I've also met Bob St. Clair, Leo Nomellini, Dan Colchico, Dwight Hicks, Gene Washington, Eason Ramson, Keena Turner, Lott, Montana, Cedrick Hardman, Brent Jones on quite a few occasions, and a few others offhand can't recall exactly who it was.
