  • The Catch was the winning touchdown reception from Joe Montana to Dwight Clark in the January 10, 1982 NFC Championship American football game between the Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers. The Catch is widely regarded as one of the most memorable events in NFL history. Montana threw a high pass to the back of the end zone. 49ers receiver Dwight Clark made a leaping grab with his fingertips from the back of the end zone for the winning touchdown with 51 seconds left in the game.

  • 12. San Francisco | August 13–17, 2012 | #sessfCase Study 1: Rod Works• Rod Works was literally bombarded by Pinterest users into opening their online store in February 2012. “We got emails daily for months from Pinterest users, so we eventually opened up our online store in February. We quickly sold hundreds of the frame rods and now sell many other unique items daily.” ~Rod Works @Matt_Siltala
