Wooooooo! When you hear that word, most people understand the reference. If you don’t, that’s the “nature boy” Ric Flair’s calling card. Flair was contacted by the 49ers to talk to the team before their playoff game against the Green Bay Packers. In true Ric Flair form, he entered the meeting room just as he would a wrestling match. As Sunrise, from Also Sprach Zarathustra, op. 30 by Richard Strauss played, the legend strutted down the aisle.

This must be a dream come true for some of the 49ers. I know meeting Flair would be awesome and all I would want to do is WOOOOOOOOOOO! Watch the video above as Flair tells the 49ers he is rooting for them even though they will now take on his hometown team the Carolina Panthers this weekend.
