I was a toddler when they won their first Super Bowl in '81, but I imagine people yelling Super Bowl after week 3 of that year were looked at like they were idiots. There's always that hope. Especially at 2-1 and MOST especially when you have 5 Lombardi's in the trophy case. I've seen too much greatness from the scarlet and gold not to believe we'll get back there. When it does happen, it's not gonna sneak up on me cuz I'm right there with you. I say Super Bowl the beginning of every season. Without that hope, what's the point, really.
I love the optimism. I'm a lot like you in this regard. Regardless of the outcome, this is the blank-slate type-of-mentality I carry with me the moment a game kicks off.
This type of faith, often times blind and naive, is why I pace back-and-forth around my TV, jittery, ready to watch the 49ers kick some a** for 4 quarters -- regardless of what factors are involved.
This is what being faithful is about. Rock on, my fellow Niner
