Well, so let me explain what happened to me on Sunday at the 49ers game against the Saints.

It all began on Friday when I dropped my car of with a mechanic, not remembering to grab my year long 49ers credential out of the glove apartment. I assure you, this will not happen again!

I didn't realize it until Sunday morning when I was getting ready to go to the game, so I called Michael Williams in marketing at the 49ers and he got me in touch with a woman who could help me get a credential for the day. After doing the pregame show, I headed over to the stadium office to pick said credential up so that I could get up to the press box to handle my job as the stadium announcer. The office is on the third floor and there was a pretty long line for the elevator. It was 12:45 already and kickoff was at 1:15, so I was sweating it a little bit. But I got my pass and it was only about 12:55 so I figured I was in the clear.
