I missed my first game in 20 years two years ago, when I was in Australia for 19 days. I worked the whole vaca so I'd only miss one game. Turns out we got thumped, but of course I still missed seeing it. I'm a season ticket holder, so I'm at all the home games too.
I grew up a military brat who always lived outside of the viewing area, but I got Sunday Ticket in my own home in 2000, and haven't missed a game since. As sh*tty as we've been for the past couple of seasons, I end up watching every game almost down to the last heart breaking second. I just can't help myself.

I did not see a few games in 2004, because it was no fun to go to the sports bar and watch us get drove down. ( I live in Texas by the way, since 1991) Though I still sported my niner gear and my beloved Niners knit I sport every winter. . I followed games on nfl.com gamecenter if I was working. (which by the way, isn't really missing a game, since you are following on-line)

Watching Hostler & Dilfer lose to an easily beatable team...
I remember that game, I had quite a few drinks during that game. I stopped watching the 4th qrt. of the KC-49ers game in 2006. Losing 41-0 was sad.
Dude I remember that game and how pissed I was we couldn't do anything right. Didn't Damon Huard tear us up that game? Not that we didn't help him or anything. I've tried to block it out, and it was working till I read your post.
Yeah, I was totally disgusted. Niners never got shutout. The streak ended in 2004 3rd game of the year vs. Seattle. I was so mad. A Peterson FG hit the crossbar. Ken Dorsey could not do crap and I cursed Dennis Erickson the whole 4th qrt. I actually watched that whole game back in 2004, just hoping we could score to keep the streak going.
