49ers fly in Ric Flair for speech before playoff game

The San Francisco 49ers brought in wrestling legend Ric Flair to fire up the team before their playoff game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

The flamboyant showman made a surprise appearance at their team meeting.

Offensive tackle Anthony Davis wrote on Twitter: "Nature Boy Ric Flair flew into this shit hole to show us some love," posting this photo:

Predictably, Davis got into a back-and-forth with the Packers' fans after that comment, but stood by his remarks: "Ok everybody that strongly disagrees w me can you defend your argument on this place not being a shithole? lol btw that is not Rhetorical."
