When the San Francisco 49ers arrived in NOLA last night, many of them were seen wearing Chicago Bulls apparel. I counted four players sporting “Chi Town’s” gear, including C Jonathan Goodwin, WR A.J. Jenkins, ILB NaVorro Bowman, and FS Dashon Goldson. I can understand if they dressed in Golden State Warriors attire, considering their winning ways this season, but the Chicago Bulls? That’s just odd.
Besides Jenkins, none of those players have any ties to Chicago, that I am aware of. Which raises the question, why Chicago? Maybe they wanted to make a fashion statement, with their Jordan jackets, or maybe they are actually die-hard fans. Whatever the case maybe, it was interesting to see nonetheless.
As the 49ers prepare for media week, it will be fun to see how they handle the limelight, as everything they do, will be under a microscope.
