The San Francisco 49ers brought out Snoop Dogg to perform at halftime of their Sunday Night Football game against the Chicago Bears. I thought he was a Steelers fan, but a check from the 49ers cashes just the same!

The San Francisco 49ers apparently decided to pull out all the stops for their Levi's Stadium regular season opener. The team brought in all their team Hall of Fame members for a pre-game ceremony, and they had local favorite Pat Monahan of the band Train perform the National Anthem. However, halftime took things to another level as they brought in Snoop Dogg to perform.

There were some rumblings a week ago that this might happen, but it seemed a little random. But nonetheless, Snoop was in the house, wearing a No. 5 49ers jersey with "Coach Snoop" on the back. He coaches a Pee Wee league team, so I'm assuming it is something to do with that. I was under the impression he was a Steelers fan, but who really knows.

The 49ers social media team got several vine videos of Snoop. They opened with this vide of him meeting Michael Crabtree as the latter was heading to the locker room at halftime. That was followed by other Vine videos of Snoop going on stage and performing.
