Default Marcus leaving Friday for SF

WLTX had an article on Marcus yesterday. He's leaving Friday to start his pro career. The video is the best part.

as big and bad as Marcus is on the field, he seems like such an innocent kid. With a single mom growing up, he probably wasn't able to do a lot of traveling. I'm sure he'll feel lost at first with leaving home for 3,000 miles away. Hope he has an easy transition in SF!! Sure am gonna miss seeing him in Columbia, but something tells me he'll be back on our sideline...

My favorite city I've ever visited, been there twice. The people are friendlier than here, and the views of the city, bay are gorgeous. If you didn't need to be a millionaire to live there, I would. LOL

Marcus doesn't seem so much innocent as principled. He seems to have a perspective that lets him view widely and a personality the puts him at ease with people of varied status and different backgrounds. When you are firmly anchored, new challenges don't seem such a threat.

I agree. I've been there once, and the people were just awesome. (Damn good seafood over there too.)

My favorite story to tell about being there was when a friend and I were trolley-hopping trying to make our way to the Golden Gate Bridge. We realized that we were on the wrong line when we noticed the trolley heading out of the city a bit and going away from the bridge. So I pulled out the little map I had and tried to figure out the best way to get there from where we were.

Noticing our confusion, this middle-aged gentleman told us exactly where we needed to go, and which trains to take. He also told us which ones to take back to Fisherman's Wharf where we were parked. We both thanked him and went on our way.

On the trolley ride back from the bridge, we passed by a homeless guy on the street, pushing a grocery cart full of junk. I looked at the guy, and it was the same gentleman who gave us directions before.

So we hopped off at the very next stop to chase this guy down and try to thank him again for being so nice, and to perhaps buy him a lunch or something. Unfortunately he was well out of sight before we could catch up to him, and we were unable to repay his kindness.

To this day I have never been anywhere that had homeless folks as courteous and well spoken as this guy was. I mean just talking to him, nobody would have ever guessed that he was living on the street.



Anyways I think Marcus will enjoy it there. And I hope he's able to make a nice impact for the 'Niner's as soon as possible.

He should move to Half Moon Bay, it's a nice little quite town just south of the city.
