Twitter Talk: 49ers Childhood Memories

Posted by Taylor Price on May 11, 2011 – 9:52 AM

Oh, the joys of Twitter. Where else can people from all walks of life comment on the exact same thing and still put their personal touches on the topic? It’s a running conversation and we’re happy to participate in the dialogue.

So when Tuesday’s top trending Twitter topic happened to be #ChildhoodMemories, we asked our Twitter followers to share their favorite #49ers #ChildhoodMemories with us.

The responses were overwhelming, but we selected a few of the most memorable replies from our followers. Throughout the offseason we’ll post the top fan replies in a new reoccurring blog post we’re calling, “Twitter Talk.”

Here are some of the top #49ers #ChildhoodMemories we received:

Feel free to chime in with your favorite memories of the San Francisco 49ers in the comments section of this post.

    I was 8, was the first professional sports game I ever saw. Baltimore Colts vs. SF 49’ers, Johnny Unitas vs John Brodie. Lenny Lyles ran back a kickoff for a TD, and had another long return. The 49’ers were running the shotgun, and blew away the Colts that day, 34-10, last game of the 1960 season, in Kezar Stadium. Dad brought his new regular 8 movie camera. When Lyles ran his TD back, what the movie shows is the back of the guy’s head in front of us!

    I was almost 4 and my dad walked me across the street to GGPark at the Polo Field where the first 49er team practiced. Got to meet Frankie Albert, Norm Standlee, and the rest. Met Buck Shaw. Saw my first game in 1947 vs. the Brooklyn Dodgers and saw what had to be one of the greatest games of all-time in 1949 when we lost to the undefeated Cleveland Browns, 31-28. Had to wait another 32 years to see us win a championship. Patience pays off.

    I lived around the corner from the headquarters in Redwood City, and met YA Tittle, RC Owens, and the older players, love the niners for over 50 years

    “The Catch”. That was the defining moment for the SF Team of the 80’s and the Team of the 90’s to finally beat Dallas in the NFC championship and to achieve an incredible winning record and dominance for a 20 year period. I can remember watch the catch and absolutely losing my mind because I knew the Niners were going to the Super Bowl for the first time!!! Talk about an adrenaline rush!

    Watching that 88, 89 niner team rip through the NFL, i would put that football team up against any team in football history and they would have beat them hands down! Bill retired and that offence became wide open! just a thing of beauty!

    I became a 49er fan in 1950 when I was ten. The Alley Oop to RC from YA was one of my favorite memories.

    When Steve Young threw Touchdown to T.O. to beat Greenbay and Terrel started crying . Cheering on the sideline watching Bret Farve’s family shake their heads as we celebrate…epic
