 We are going to The Grove.

One sleepless night ...Bus packed we are on our way to the 49ers Team Hotel. Appointment 10am... 
we waited patiently outside as first Anquan Bolden... then Kendall Hunter.. and Quinton Dial walked past our Faithful Minibus as we tried to contain our excitement...930am came and Gary arrived.
 'Lets go in' I said...nervously!...Met by security 'can we help' they asked....yes we have a meeting with Scott Kegley! Sure take a seat.
 We were escorted to our seats and sat down ...oh look said Gavin there's Jim Harbaugh...Andy lee gave us a hello...Patrick willis gave us a cheeky smile...Coach Tomsula thought we was the Police!!!!...We was in dreamland...49er dreamland.
 Scott, Robert, and Will came down and introduced themselves...right guys lets go out and do some filming and photo's...

UK_Faithful

London day 1 - After getting up at silly o'clock to pickup Gavin and his family we set out for Heathrow! ..Its was raining in manchester and continued all the way to Daventry where we hit the dreaded matrix signs...M25 Long Delays!!!!...wth...dont they know we have a appointment with the world's best football team!!!!
Quick check of the Sat Nav..ETA 11.59..then.12.15!!!!...what time are the Niners arriving Gavin???...'12.45pm mate' he said...crikey no more delays or we wont make it!!!!!...the thought of missing a chance to meet the Stars of our football team!!!...nooooooo.
Then as if by magic the traffic lifted and the miles decreased! Heathrow 8 miles...Are we there yet the shouts came from the back ..'Nearly we shouted hardly containing our own inner excitement!!!
 Heathrow appeared in front of us 1200 noon arrived and so had we...are the niners here yet we asked as we met Brian in the Terminal...'Nah mate they are over Ireland' he said....we waited and waited a little bit more .
 Then the doors swung open and slowly but surely the players started to advance towards us...all looking tired from their game and long trip...We was happy just to shake their hand...some stopped and signed for us ...some stopped for pictures....

Harbough

Coach stopped and signed everything for us.....
 Then we heard this big Shout 'Boobie' yelled Gavin...and Anthony Dixon was behind us....photo with the kids Gavin asked ...Boobie dutifully obliged.

Dixon

Is that it we asked each other ....where is Patrick Willis? don't know, did he pass us I asked...and last but not least #52 approached ....Brian couldn't contain his excitement....Please can we have a photo he asked and Patrick gave us a willing smile...'certainly he said'.

Willis

 and so they drifted off to London and we was buzzing like little kids at christmas!!
 Did that really happen???
  Yes it did and it was fantastic!!!! What a great day
