It seems like San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan might have embraced the Las Vegas vibe a tad early.
During Super Bowl Opening Night, Shanahan and the rest of the 49ers addressed the media. Observant fans noted Shanahan’s notably relaxed demeanor while speaking to reporters, a departure from his usual demeanor.
Some spectators speculated that the 44-year-old coach might have enjoyed a drink or two before arriving at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. Despite being articulate, Shanahan seemed to slightly slur his words.
In one instance, Shanahan’s response to a question about the evolution of the 49ers and Chiefs since their last Super Bowl face-off elicited a chuckle from his interviewer.
Perhaps Shanahan was attempting to drown out the reported troubles the 49ers faced with their practice field.
Whether Shanahan indeed imbibed on Monday or not, he appeared to be in high spirits.
