49ers Pasta Bowl 2008

Last night Darcy and I attended the 49ers pasta bowl for the second year in a row. The event is a fund raiser put on by the 49ers. There are many silent auctions, a raffle, as well as 40-something corporate sponsored tables. Each table is represented by two 49er players, ours by Cornerback Tarell Brown, who won a national championship with the Vince Young-led Texas Longhorns at the Rose Bowl against USC in 2006, and Safety Dashon Goldson. I did a little research on each of them and this is what I found:

Tarell Brown #25 (further research on wikipedia revealed the Tarell had some trouble with the law back in college)

Dashon Goldson

Here they are pictured (Tarell on the left. Dashon, on the right.) with a friend and work colleague of Darcy's named Katie Cote.

The event, like last year, was a lot of fun. We got to rub elbows with professional athletes, while having two of them serve us in aprons. However, unlike last year, we weren't running around getting pictures with the famous players. We instead opted to stay at our table and refrain from being starstruck. After all, we got pictures with them last year so why do it again?

At the end the entire team took the stage. Coach Mike Nolan is in the blue shirt on the left:

Being two days overdue didn't stop us from getting out of the house and enjoying this event, and despite being over 40 weeks pregnant, Darcy had a great time. We're very excited for the upcoming week, anticipating it will include the long awaited birth of our son. I will be off to work tomorrow morning, on call in case it's time to head to Kaiser Santa Clara. Darcy, on the other hand, has started maternity leave.

Hopefully my next post on here will be to introduce the new member of our family.
