"What did 49ers do with those gloriously muddy uniforms?"

Mercury News:

“It wasn’t too bad because we don’t let anything sit. We landed about 9:30 p.m., the truck got here at 10:30, we got the trunks and bags off, unloaded immediately, washed immediately, then took the shoulder pads and travel bags and aired them out. Anything we can wash, we wash, sometimes twice.”

Q: Did any players want to keep their muddy jerseys as a Mud Bowl 2019 keepsake?

Brunetti: “A couple guys keep their jersey every game, so I can’t say they looked at this as anything special.”

Brunetti estimated that eight players typically swap jerseys with an opponent after the game, and they’re charged the jersey’s cost. He didn’t complain about this, but it’s worth noting new jerseys require the 49ers staff to tailor new ones, such as customized wishes for shorter sleeves, a tapered belly area or a ‘V’ in the back.)
