To all our San Francisco 49ers fans and friends everywhere, Niner Noise would like to extend the warmest Christmas wishes and excitement heading towards 2019!
It’s that time of year again, San Francisco 49ers Faithful. We’re winding down 2018 and getting ready for the hope and hype that is associated with a new year. And despite what has turned into a disappointing season for the red and gold, know that all of us here at Niner Noise have been ever happy and thankful you’ve stuck with us throughout.
We may do the writing and chatting. But without you, this site would be absolutely meaningless. So, thank you!
And as our gift to you, Niner Noise offers up our own little rendition of Twas the Night Before Christmas, 49ers style.
Twas the night before Christmas and all through the Bay,
Not a Niners fan was stirring, so the Faithful say.
The uniforms were hung in the locker room with care,
In the hopes a win would close 2018 with fanfare.
The players were nestled home, snug in their beds,
With visions of Lombardi Trophies dancing in their heads.
Kyle Shanahan was done, finishing film recap,
Getting ready to leave for a long Christmas nap.
When out on the field, there arose quite the clatter,
Enough to convince Shanny to see what was the matter.
Away to the gridiron the head coach did fly,
To see what noise was stirring inside Levi’s.
The moon was quite clear, shimmering the grass,
Highlighting the yard lines and reflecting off the glass.
But to Shanahan’s eyes, wonder did appear,
When he saw a red and gold sleigh with 49 reindeer.
There was a handsome, tall driver so lively and lo,
Shanny knew it a moment it was St. Jimmy Garoppolo.
Jimmy G flew through the night like it was a ballgame,
Calling out his receivers, each by his name.
“Now Kittle, now Goodwin, now Pettis and Bourne.
On Taylor, on James, it’s Celek Time and more!
To the back of the end zone from the 50-yard line,
You get yourself open, and I’ll throw you the dime!”
The quarterback Santa was dressed red and gold,
And Shanahan was taken by Jimmy G’s eyes, so bold.
Garoppolo had a bag of footballs slung over his back,
Looking fully confident in his red-zone attack.
Jimmy hit a wide-open Pettis running his route,
Then his dime to Kittle, oh was it a beaut!
Jimmy G then motioned Goodwin to go deep,
Hitting him with a pass he could make in his sleep.
Shanahan was pleased, because this was his team,
It was actual reality and not from a dream.
The coach thought to himself, “If we can just get on a roll,
With players like this, we can win the Super Bowl.”
At that moment, though, Garoppolo began to head out,
Making Shanahan wonder when he’d see him about.
“I’ll be back better than ever,” Jimmy G did say,
“So, GO NINERS to all and a Merry Christmas day!”
Good thing we aren’t poets here at Niner Noise.
