Logan Couture has been open on Twitter about his abiding and at times depressing (and maybe delusional) loyalty to the Buffalo Bills. But in Thursday’s shootout win over the Oilers, the Sharks forward gave a shoutout to the local 49ers.
After putting the Sharks ahead 1-0 in second period, Couture “Kaepernicked” by kissing his right bicep in celebration before he was mobbed by his teammates:
Here’s what he said after the game, per CSN:
“It’s a Bay Area team that’s in the Super Bowl, so, just showed some support for those guys,” he said. “Obviously, the team around here — we’re rooting for them.”
And on Twitter Friday:
Good luck to @kaepernick7 and the rest of the 49ers on Sunday. Nothing personal, just showing my support.
