When the lockout finally ends, I’m go to remember the little things.
I’m going to remember a lot of stories about John Beck. I’m going remember not fully understanding what David Cornwell and Florio are talking about on PFT Live. I’m going to remember 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh getting league permission to bring Alex Smith’s wife flowers.
Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com writes that Harbaugh was among the visitors to Alex and Elizabeth Smith last week when they welcomed their first child to the world. (We send our congrats.)
The 49ers confirmed the visit and said they first asked for league approval to offer face-to-face congratulations. The NFL approved because it was a social visit.
The expected return of Smith to the 49ers has been one of the more surprising stories of this offseason. Harbaugh recruited Smith like a college prospect and it’s clear he’s not leaving anything to chance.
