    Joe Montana's legend started in 1982.

    The San Francisco 49ers are inviting long-time fans over to their Santa Clara training facility this weekend for a walk back in time to the glory days of old.

    How far back will you be stepping? 30 years to be exact.

    The team will be showing a screening of the 1982 Super Bowl XVI victory at 8 p.m. Saturday on their practice field in Santa Clara.  The event is free, but sold out. The team allotted a certain number of tickets and they went fast.

    Superbowl XVI gave the 49ers their first NFL championship. Ray Wersching kicked 4 field goals and the great Joe Montana started to form his legend in a brilliant passing game that gave the team a 26-21 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on January 24, 1982.

    The team is calling Saturday's  event the "Super Bowl Under the Stars." 

    This is a BYOB event. That's bring your own blanket. No liquor is allowed (or any outside food for that matter).

    Along with a thrilling game, visitors will also get a meet-and-greets with 49ers alumni.

    The team says the following players will be there:

    • Dwight Clark
    • Keena Turner
    • Dan Bunz
    • Ray Wersching
    • Mike Shumann
    • Fred Dean


    And to help you realize just how long ago 1982 was, below is a YouTube posting of the half-time show from the game, featuring Up With People.
