As I typed out the title to this post I was baffled at home ridiculous of a head line it is. Essentially San Francisco 49ers qarterback Colin Kaepernick puts on a San Francisco 49ers hat.

But after being spotted wearing a Miami Dolphins hat, and defiantly taking to Instagram to defend your choice of hat it seems more relevant.

Colin Kaepernick has dazzled on the field with his ability to elude defenses and would-be tacklers. The internet mob is something different to avoid. The backlash and outrage of fans must have gotten to him.

So he posted a photo of himself on Instagram wearing a red tank top with “The Golden State” in gold letter across it. He than donned a 49ers snap back hat. The bill is unusual and looks like poker chips with cards. The caption for the photo reads “It’s just swag it ain’t never hurt nobody! #GoldenStateofMind.”

It’s still some curious fashion choices, but I assure you I’m probably not one to talk. The sweat shorts, the white shows and the black socks… yeesh. Anyways, I’m sure San Francisco 49ers fans are breathing a sigh of relief.
