During a Thursday press conference, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi segued from various political issues to the topic of Sunday’s NFC Championship game between the 49ers and Seahawks. Pelosi is openly rooting for the Niners, but it’s Kaepernick who garners her full attention.
“We love our quarterback, the tattoos, the big arms, the whole deal,” she said while flexing.
Kaep was never referred to by name, but that description definitely fits the bill.
Other Pelosi (and NFL)-related takeaways from the presser, in case you skipped the video:
- She is rocking a 49ers charm bracelet.
- She thought Joe Montana wore No. 14.
- She praised San Fran for their Divisional Round win over “North Carolina” and implied the team will be playing the Redskins in the NFC title game (she would correct herself to say Seattle).
- She and representatives from Washington have wagered chocolate on the result of Sunday’s game.
And now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
