Are you ready for some football?

It was the best of both worlds for me and Trevor in early November, the Titans were coming out west to play my 49ers. We don't get many chances to see the Titans play since they are so far away. Although we have seen them play in Denver before, it was only a pre-season game in Vince Young's rookie year. We flew out on Saturday night for the big game. (Marc joined us on Sunday morning) Trevor got his first taste of In & Out Burger.... Not impressed! We got to the stadium early for a big tailgating party.(free food and games...YEAH) Once in the stadium, we were seated on the 50 yard line, row 3 on the Titans side. We watched a lot of the pre-game warm up. (Alex Smith can't do a jumping jack, but his backside wasn't too bad to look at) Vince Young sat on the bench right in front of us when he wasn't in the game.
The weather was beautiful and it was a great game. In the end the Titans fought back and won the game 34-27.
Once the players are all cleaned up and leaving the stadium, they have a meet and greet where they sign autographs and catch-up with family and friends before boarding the bus for the airport. At the end of September, Marc flew the Titans Charter to New England. During this trip, Marc got to meet Rob Bironas (place kicker). So during the meet and greet, we got to go over and hang with Rob for a few. Trevor was soooo excited. Trevor thinks that if he plays football someday, that maybe he would like to be a kicker. Thanks Rob, it was fun to meet you!
No trip to San Francisco is complete without a trip to Ghirardelli. We topped off our great day with some ice cream and a drive down Lombard Street.
