The San Francisco 49ers got surprise visit from wrestling legend Ric Flair tonight ... but what's more shocking, one of the players gave him props for flying into the "sh*thole" that is Green Bay!!!
With the 49ers set to play the Packers Sunday in a Wild Card game, The Nature Boy gave a pump up speech to the squad at the team meeting the night before ... even belting out his signature "WOOOO!!"
But after the visit, lineman Anthony Davis gave the Pack some last minute bulletin board material when he ripped the city ... tweeting, "Nature Boy Ric Flair flew into this sh*t hole to show us some love."
In all fairness to Davis, the weather in Green Bay is BEYOND FREEZING ... but "sh*t hole?"
As for Ric, unclear what his connection is to the team ... since he was born in Tennessee and lives in North Carolina. But when the topic of marriage came up, he did drop one nugget:
"I don't give marital advice ... I'm 0 for 4."
Ric who? (Yawn!)
He was actually referring to Appleton, WI. That’s even worse, in my opinion. Appleton is a good town with a lovely population of Christian Conservatives.
Hope Wisconsin for Obama gets a good whiff of what their elite Democrat buddies on the coasts really think of them. Same with Dems in places like DePuke, Iowa, Toleto, Ohio, etc.
Good Grief, it was just some good ol’ @all busting. Has nothing to do with politics, or democrats, etc.
Sometimes folks just need to step away from the keyboard and take a walk outside and smell the air.
As for Ric Flair, I have no clue as to who he is, or why the 49ers think he is a motivational speaker. But hey, three points and a sloppy game on the niners part? A win is a win, not matter how ugly.
Thanks for the lecture
“To be the man, you gotta beat the man!” - Ric Flair
Anthony Davis is probably one of the best football players to come out of Rutgers. Aaah, us Rutgers guys. Sorry. Our bad. Nobody from Jersey should be calling any other place a s@:;hole.
I imagine it went a little like this.
A compliment from a San Franciscan, where sh*t holes are equated with “love.”
You are welcome, now go out and enjoy life to its fullest! Lecture over :)
“Hey man, I’m here to support the team.”
As a professional wrestler, one of the all-time greats.
As a person, it is rumored that he’s a jerk.
However, he is a Republican.
Since games in the last season are as scripted as a WWF match, the Nature Boy Ric Flair is a perfect motivator. Just like a WWF manager hanging on to the trunks of a challenger.
there’s an app for that
Look for the Ric Flair/Roddy Piper episode of Wife Swap on youtube.
Very interesting contrast of lifestyles... I would probably get along just fin with Rod and his family, actually.
Yeah, no kidding! Those hershey highway rumpers in San Fag know all about holes that smell like sh$t...
I always think of Buddy Rogers first when I hear ‘The Nature Boy’ nickname...
Ric was a great entertainer, they wrote some wonderful wrestling scripts back in the day. I can see why he’s make a good motivational speaker.
I lived in Neenah and worked in Appleton. GREAT place to raise kids. We moved there from Nor Cal for that reason. That Jersey ahole can keep SF.
Our strongest memory of SF is the homeless guy crapping in the doorway of our hotel off Union Square. That place is totally ruined.
