“If you happen to sit in the Sun Power Suite at Levi’s Stadium during Super Bowl 50, you will see a tribute to Steve Jobs, Apple Founder and a man some call the most brilliant innovator of our generation,” Jeremy Louwerse reports for NFL.com. “The tribute is simple — a framed sketch of Jobs accompanied by one of his most famous quotes: ‘The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.'”
“Call the tribute appropriate,” Louwerse reports. “Levi’s Stadium is in the heart of Silicon Valley — and Silicon Valley is Steve Jobs country.”
“In 1979, the 49ers were much like Steve Jobs — they believed in themselves and needed people to believe in them,” Louwerse reports. “It was the beginning of a parallel in the Bay Area between two powerhouses, The Team of the Decade and one of the true creative geniuses of our time.”
“In January of 1985, hundreds of high school students — including this writer — are volunteering to put seat covers on the benches of the 100,000-plus capacity stadium. Emblazoned on the cushion is the logo for Apple Computers [sic],” Louwerse reports. “A few miles away, Jobs is planning his 30th birthday party in February, knowing that the millions of viewers watching the nation’s biggest television event are going to get a glimpse of his logo covering the Palo Alto benches.”
