My husband and I moved to San Francisco in Joe Montana’s rookie year. It was impossible not to get swept up in the fever. I stayed with them through the Steve Young and Jerry Rice years. Then I had 2 children. I’ve long since given up my football habit. It’s nothing but a gladiator sport, its consequences terrible.
