As we told you earlier, Fidel Castro-supporting San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was greeted by boos when he took the field against the Miami Dolphins earlier Sunday afternoon.
Well, that was pretty great but the game ended on an even better note when Kiko Alonso, whose father is Cuban, tackled Kaepernick short of the end zone thus securing the Dolphins the win:

What a fitting end to the game – Kiko Alonso, Cuban, bending Colin Kaepernick backwards with the help of Ndamukong Suh.

Byron Maxwell and Kiko Alonzo stopping Chip Kelly's offense on the final 2 plays, handing him his 10th straight loss is so 2016.

Alonso intercepted Kaepernick earlier in the game as well as a fumble recovery:

Kiko Alonso has an interception, fumble recovery and five tackles in the Castoff Bowl. Kiko vs. Chip.

And this knocks the 49ers out of the playoffs:
The loss eliminates @49ers from the playoffs and ironically it's Kiko Alonso who delivered Chip Kelly the final blow #

In his press conference after the game, Kaepernick claimed that his earlier praise of dictatorial Cuba had been taken out of context:
