49ers beat Bengals in Super Bowl XXIII 26 years ago today

The San Francisco 49ers will not be taking part in the Super Bowl this year, but that does not mean we can't enjoy a trip down memory lane. 26 years ago today, the 49ers defeated the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl XXIII.

Some of you might recall that little game. Joe Montana had himself a nice little drive at some point, capped off by a touchdown pass to John Taylor. The 49ers won 20-16. It was kind of memorable! And speaking of which, you can re-watch the drive in the video above. It opens with several key plays leading up to the final drive, and then goes through each play of that game-winning drive. It is always worth a watch.

I was doing some poking around at YouTube, and I came across one other video. It is all the pre-game ceremonies from that day. It's pretty random, but it was kind of amusing and worth sharing.
