It was a bold choice because Gore had to be assured of the result when he bought the hoodie and when he packed it to wear after the game. Did he pack a backup? Because he would have looked really silly if the 49ers lost.
But they didn't. The 49ers won 27-13. Gore had 85 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown. Aldon Smith added two sacks to his monster season. San Francisco got the win, and Gore's sweatshirt choice was downright clairvoyant.
