Gore will make a little extra money for reaching the big game, and he'll celebrate that by spending a little extra money on his uniform. As first reported by ESPN, Gore was fined $10,500 by the NFL for wearing his socks too low during the 49ers' victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.
"When you're playing, you don't think about it," Gore said Wednesday, via The Associated Press. "You're trying to win."
Gore, who rushed for two touchdowns in the 49ers' 28-24 win, said he won't make the same mistake again: "Yeah, I'll be cool. It's all good. I was wrong. Next time, I'll do better."Follow Gregg Rosenthal on Twitter @greggrosenthal.
