SANTA CLARA Colin Jones is the first to admit that dancing is not his forte. Nor, said the 49ers safety, has he fully deciphered the lyrics of the song that plays at Candlestick Park each time the 49ers' kickoff team takes the field.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. Gators defensive line coach Bryant Young wasnt there physically, but his imagination took him back to San Franciscos Candlestick Park for a short time on Saturday.
Young was glancing at the 49ers-Saints playoff game on a big-screen TV while eating dinner with some recruits. It was San Franciscos first playoff game in nine years, a fact hard to imagine for anyone...
Because they're no longer living in football anonymity, we now know what seems to drive the San Francisco 49ers kickoff team into a pre-kick dancing frenzy is a rap song called "Tony Montana."

I have heard for a while that San Francisco’s running back, Frank Gore is a beast with the football in his hands. So, I looked up his game-by-game stats to see where No. 21 has most of his success.
And I was a bit shocked what I found: Will the real Frank Gore please stand up?
