49ers bring in MC Hammer for motivational speech

MC Hammer and Aol go together like spaghetti and meatball.

It appears that so far in the 2011 season, the San Francisco 49ers are too legit to quit. To further them in these efforts, the Niners coaching staff brought in rapper, star of the 90's, shiny pants wearer and apparent motivational speaker MC Hammer to talk to the team.

According a 49ers spokesperson, via Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area, Hammer discussed the "trials and tribulations" of being a famous person.

The San Francisco players were, surprisingly, thrilled at the visit from a guy whose 15 minutes of fame took place before most of them hit puberty.



Of course, this isn't the first time Hammer's stepped in to help out the 49ers -- a few years ago, he helped push wide reciever and top draft pick Michael Crabtree into ending his holdout.

And, in fact, Hammer was part of a group that put together an advertisement for Mayor Ed Lee that featured Giants closer Brian Wilson. So, really, he's kind of a big deal on the west coast and around Oakland and San Francisco.

Jim Harbaugh just needs to make sure Hammer's ability to stay relevant doesn't rub off on the Niners.

Really, MC Hammer? I think, "U Can't Touch This" came out in 1990.....Newsflash - next week, Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane will address the team.

Uh, OK.

I guess anything that's not a "hey look at me" move by the coach is a good one. Most of the moves made so far this year seem to be the right ones at the right time so I guess I'll wait n see what develops after the bye week. All I know is it's been ugly bein' a Niner fan for a long time, and if MC has been suffering along with the rest of us in Niner land, then at least his motives are as a legit fan. Go Niners, Go Hammer.

  You have got to be kidding me! If and that's a big "IF" the 49er's needed a motivational speech all they have to do is listen to their "The Coach of the Year"......JH! As he is turning things around I'm sure he's well aware of that the niners usually does not do well after their BYE Week ( the past couple years ) He should "motivate" them on how hard they should continue to play by greeting them ( like Jim Schwartz ) as they exit the tunnel with the second best defence in the NFL! No let downs! Keep the killer instinct! Take no prisoners! They're playing to their best potentical and skill level because of Jim! Go 4T9ERS! Gman

You too can get an inspirational speech from MC Hammer!  He works at the McDonalds in Nob Hill, he dances for quarters.
