In what is beginning to be a yearly occurrence, The 49ers once again face the Green Bay Packers for the second time in a season. There has been a good historical rivalry between these two teams going back decades, before starting QB Colin Kaepernick even knew what a football was. We all know Kaep was a Green Bay fan growing up and just for fun, I inserted his photo as a child (SJMN). He was only five years old here so we can excuse him for not having gained any fashion sense yet. Although some would argue that he still hasn't, but let's not bring up that Dolphins cap again.
Anyway, Colin is now sporting the correct colors of red and gold, and ironically he leads his team against a quarterback who grew up a huge fan of the 49ers. You gotta love the humor of the football gods. Unfortunately, we could not find a similar photo of Aaron Rodgers in a 49ers jersey, although Alex Smith once came very close to getting one, but Rodgers chose to wear his chicken shirt instead.
Let's all hope that Kaep once again does what he does best against Green Bay which is have a career day on the field. After all, the 49ers still owe the Packers a couple more heartbreaks before things are square between the two franchises.
