So I haven't posted for years (getting married and starting a family will shift how much free time you have), but I had this experience and had to share with my fellow zoners,cuz after all, we ARE family...
My Family and I were going to my uncle's house in Daly City for a pre-wedding party for my cousin last night. They live on a very densley populated street with horrible parking. I found a spot in front of a home a few houses down from my uncles and an elderly woman was standing in the drive way and a middle aged man was spraying weeds on her driveway and sidewalk. I asked him if I could park in front of their home and was told me it was ok. Thought to myself that he had looked familiar but couldn't pinpoint right away.
My wife and I started unloading our children and the women proceeded to complement my 2 1/2 year old son. She then proudly stated, "My son is the offensive line coach for the 49ers" lol It was cute that she was still so proud of her boy. At that moment it clicked, and I was like "Oh wow. Hey Coach Solari!" Went and shook his hand and chatted a bit. Told him how die hard I was and congratulated him on the past 3 seasons. He thanked me. Asked him how it was working for coach Harbaugh and he said "Absolutely amazing!" Then he started telling me how "They just had the rookies today and it was a short day so he decided to come visit his mom" He had shorts and a polo that had Niner logo's on them so it looked like eh came straight over. Respect him for that, because I always took care of my mom before she passed.
I held my boy and he gave him a high 5. I then said "Man hopefully we can get Boone back soon" and he was like "Oh he'll be there! Trust me"
Didn't wanna ask for a pic because we were in a rush to get to my families house. Anyway he was a real cool guy to chat it up with me like that... As I departed and said bye, I said "This is our year, Go Niners!" he replied with "Yes it is!" take care bud."
Random but cool experience.
