49ers Gold Rush at the 6th Annual Crab Festival

Reader Rex sends in this report and a few photos of the 49ers Gold Rush

Saturday was the 6th Annual Crab Festival at Union Square and there was a celebrity crab cracking contest that included two Gold Rush cheerleaders (Krissie and Jackie) as well as other 49ers players and local celebrities. I think Jackie was last year's champion (Rex asked around and says that 2008 Pro Bowler Kristen O. was last year's champion), but I'm not too sure about that because I wasn't living in San Fran then and didn't attend the event. Krissie was the more excited of the two Gold Rush who were in the contest; she was waving her mallet around a lot. It was a fun event and I had a great time taking photos there.
