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.

Mc Hammer give me a break maybe he will introduce them to parachute pants he wore and teach them that dance where he goes from side to side in his video for " Can't touch this"! That's a classic and funny to do. I'm thinking motivation and he doesn't come to my mind. If the niners were struggling and needed a redemption speech possibly. Their one of the top teams as it currently stands maybe it'll pay off, no pun intended considering his financial fiascoes. Hammer don't hurt'em and hope he taught them the 2 legit to quit hand jive!

you guys never stop do you.... He was brought in for "the rookies" and talked about the ""trials and tribulations" of being a famous person." His personal life would benefit these rookies who can relate to what he went through and how he mishandled his life. Geez!!!

This must be a joke right? If you have to get motivation from Hammer then you have problem.
