If you are anything like me, (and judging by the fact you're reading this post, it's pretty safe to assume that we have a few things in common) two things stick out right away from the photos of Jed York's wife Danielle Belluomini.
First, Jed did very well for himself by marrying Danielle. And secondly, exactly how old is Jed York and how does he own an NFL franchise? Before we tackle the second topic let's focus in on Danielle Belluomini. I would have no problem going up to her in a bar and taking a chance at getting her number. She's very cute but not unapproachably hot. Before marrying Jed she was a public school teacher and now does a lot of volunteer and charity work for both the team and in the education arena. The couple maintains a very low public profile compared to other NFL owners (yes I'm talking about you Jerry Jones!). After marrying in 2011 after a long courtship, the newlyweds honeymooned in the Florida Keys. Now don't get me wrong the Florida Keys are nice but that is the last place I would expect a couple like this to go on their honeymoon.
Now on to the more important question. How at the age of 32 is Jed York the owner of one of the most prized teams in the NFL, the San Francisco 49ers? Has to be a dot-com guy, or an insane hedge fund manager right? Even that seems too early to have enough money to buy a team. To answer this question you need to go back to the glory days of Joe Montana and Steve Young. At the time Eddie DeBartolo was the owner of the 49ers. Everyone loved Eddie, including the Feds who charged Eddie with not reporting a felony. After pleading guilty Eddie was suspended by the NFL for a year. After coming back there were many legal issues that forced Eddie to give control to his sister Marie and her husband John York. After a rough stretch for the team, one that saw John York become one of the least popular owners, he turned the team over to his son Jed. Since taking ownership Jed has reshaped the image of the 49ers and been a much more fan friendly owner, though to be fair, I suppose a trip to the Super Bowl makes any owner more fan friendly,...49ers Owner Jed York's Wife Danielle Belluomini,
