An 11-Year Old Somehow Snuck On The Field, Sprinted To The 49ers Sideline And Scared The Hell Out Of Kyle Shanahan
I'm completely on the side of Kyle Shanahan here. First off, a random kid coming up to you is terrifying. I say this even as a father. These little rugrats just appear out of nowhere and scare the shit out of you. That's even more true when it's not your kid. You don't know what to say or do. You ultimately just stare at them confused as they are. Now throw in the fact this kid is 11 and it's even more confusing. That's about too old to be able to get away with the shit little kids do, but still young enough to juke your parents and end up on the field.
Like Shanahan says, respect to this kid. I have no idea how he ended up on the field but he made the most of it. He got all the way to the bench, talked to a couple players and then the head coach. That's a hell of a way to make news as an 11-year old. Should have gotten a little dap up from Shanahan before getting escorted back to his seat. But sure if I do that, I get banned from the stadium for life. This kid gets a heartwarming story all over Twitter.
The real question is how the hell did he get there though? I need a full story in how you end up on the sidelines. I'm not even talking about escaping your parents. That's an easy thing to do. Listen, we get distracted as parents. There's too much shit going on that I could understand a dad getting distracted and losing this kid for a second. But to get on the field? Someone get the kid on the horn and get his side of the story.
Also if I'm playing the 49ers next week, I'm lining up kids to scare the hell out of Shanahan. Anything for a win.
