San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh is evidently a fan of "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure."
Harbaugh said that barring the appearance of a time-traveling Abraham Lincoln, the matchup this Sunday between the 49ers and Seattle should be more than enough to get fans excited.
“Well, I would hope for that this week, that Candlestick, we get it cranked up,” Harbaugh said Wednesday. “Make it a real great environment, because it’ll be a great football game. I know players will be very enthusiastic for the game. If this doesn’t fire you up, if this doesn’t fire up the fans then what does? I suppose Abraham Lincoln riding across the field with a frock and a top hat, riding a horse, waving an American flag. I doubt that would fire them up, if this game doesn’t fire them up. The people that really love football would be fired up by this matchup.”
Short of a time-travel machine like the now out-of-date phone booth from the 1989 movie starring Keanu Reeves, don’t expect Lincoln to be making any appearances. Although it would be most excellent.
