What type of gameday fan are you?

I'm a loud fan. I frighten children and small animals. I tend to cuss a lot when I'm watching a game.
I am extremly loud to the point I can be horse the next day. Especially if it's a good game and we win. If we are losing, I am a sour puss. I don't except calls after a lose and I used to call into work the next day. I call the players by name like I know them and we are the best of friends. I always have some type of jersey on. I still trying to find the right "Lucky" jersey. I do have some Niner boxers that I will be sportin on Sundays, so hopefully that helps. Oh yeah, I also get drunk during the games and always stay at home for Home Field Advantage.
For an away game at home; first thing, a beer, early game or late. Then we put up all the flags I use in the lot, some taped on the windows in front so everyone knows why there are loud sounds coming out of the house. Then more flags taped to the mantle, then I build the Niner alter around the TV with many different icons and good luck items. Oh yeah, before all that the 25 year old Niner shorts go on along with the ancient Niner shirt. No team member names or numbers, only ancient Niners.

Anyway, then I drape the good luck towel I wear to rainy games on the back of the couch, and then, when I had a ton of hats, I set them up like Xmas ornaments all over.

Then if the team ran into a bad stretch in the game we would start to reverse different objects to see if that would change things..

Reminds me, I used to have a hula dancing doll with a Niner sombrero and a tiny Niner shirt I made for her; she faced us on Offense and we turned her around on D. She lasted a long time and seemed to bring the team luck on TV, but one black day I threw her into the fire place..

That's part of what we did..

Now, I get up at 2 or 4am in the dark, put my Niner shorts on, old shirt, and cap. Turn on the computer to watch on pirate domains, but before that, I say the lords prayer in the dark with my hat over my hands, like we do in the lot at the Stick, scream a bit, and settle in and hope the DSL doesn't' die like it usually does..

Then I come out to jungle drums as the sun comes up, and all my Balinese friends know; if they won it will be a good day around me. If not, don't go near. Same as it's always been...

My life, my Niners!!!!!!! 2009!!! Go Niners!!!!!
When i go to CandleStick for the game, In the morning everything is really mellow. As i get a few beers in and the parking lot gets more full, my mood changes and im only concentrating on game time. As i go up the escalators i feel nervousand anxious, only because i want the 49ers to win so badly. i have to get pumped up and mentally prepared for the game just like the players do. Iam loud at all times during the game except for when theyre on offense. I like to talk sh*t to oposing fans, make them wish they never came out to Stick. Win or loss, i will not have my voice anymore...then i call in sick on monday.

At home for away games, i do not miss kickoff...even if i stayed up till 4 am the night before my body will some how wake me up before 10am...Put the game on HD on the big screen and ready to go....Loud as usually, kicking and screaming at the TV...If its a close game, Im a nervous wreck...for example, last year during the Rams game after Josh Morgan caught that amazing TD and the Rams were driving with like 50 seconds left....i was pacing back in forth going crazy until our defensive finally stopped them....even my dad was like 'Dude calm down'
I get pretty intense watching Niner football. I am definitely a loud and crazy fan. My wife says I remind her of Coach Siefert with my body language and I don't even realize I am doing it. If it's late in the 4th quarter and the game is close I get up and pace back and forth across the room keeping one eye on the game until it's over.
Loud and involved! Talk s**t during games, at home and at the stadium... Normally go to 3-4 home games... Tailgating is a huge must and lots might recognize us by our huge taco stand grill!
I guess I am both loud and quiet. Quiet because I do not have conversations when the game is on - Not even the "that guy is so good/bad" type conversations. "Small talk" is definitely not allowed. Loud because when something happens I either jump up and shout or slouch back into my seat, pound on the arm rest, and cuss.

I also get butterflies about 30 min before the game starts and that lasts until the first real drive (not kickoff) takes my attention away. After that, I tense up and over-analyze every little detail until the game is basically decided. I'm so tense that I can't lay down or sit in a recliner and I most definitely cannot hold food or drink for any longer than it takes to take a bite/sip, because I will spill sh*t and not even realize it when something big happens.

I'm better off watching games by myself because nobody would want to be around me when the game is on.

That ain't good for your health bro. I know exactly where you are coming from cause I used to be the same way. At some point during the game you have to decide if all this stress is worth it and force yourself to sit and chill out or leave the room for a while and calm down.

I'm a loud fan but most of the time i'm at the game
I don't like watching games with like 20 dudes at the house. Not all are niner fans and they talk and moving around just annoying and distracting.

3 or 4 guys don't bother me too much because i can still yell and scream louder than the 4 put together.

I've also been known to destroy remotes by firing them against the wall . . . but that was when I was younger. I'm better now.

Same here!!
Heheh, this is not like San Diego



That was gonna be a breeze and we all knew it



This is going to be rather encapsulating of a game
I watch every game with the same 4 guys... we have to stick together because we're close to the only ones rooting for the Niners in our town. I usually let out the big long "woooooooo" after a big play and we all bounce around like fools haha.

edit: I am also the fan who always catches himself yelling at the TV: "two hands, two hands, put two hands on the f-ing ball CRABS!"
