Why do you love the niners?

Growing up in my house love for any other team simply did not occur to me.
Because I love men.
45-14 against the Cowboys during the regular season 1981 against the Cowboys

I knew then that Dwight Hicks and the Hot Licks were for real

I was 13

I was 20 years of Bliss

Followed by 10 years of Piss

Now, we are back to the bliss years

when i was 11 and was looking for a favorite team, i thought the colors and name was cool. plus i had a man crush on vic and gene washington and cedrick hardman. well a boy crush since i was 11.
Born in San Francisco. But didn't grow up there. There is no other feeling I get while watching any other team than I get when I watch the San Francisco 49ers. No other feeling. Couldn't ever ever imagine rooting for any different team. Was never any particular moment I realized, "hey, im gonna be a niner fan now". Been one as far as I can remember. Pictures of me 5 years old wearing 49er sweat shirts. Don't even remember. But, yeah, love me some 49ers.

First memory ever was watching John Taylor catch the winning pass from Montanta. I was 7. Been watching the niners ever since. We were always good so its been really tough to understand what the f**k is going on and how to rebuild.

when my daughter was 11 she saw a picture of him on tv and told her mom... that is god. needless to say her mom yelled at her for that one. I did raise her right though

google 49ers 1976 highlights on you tube and you will see willie mcgee making touchdown catches on of my first niner games on tv was probably the vikings game we won in 1973 when john brodie came off the bench to spell spurrier and lead us to a great win, of course we pissed the next playoff game vs the cowboys down our legs. see back in those days, you had cbs and nbc and in iowa, only the vikings, and chiefs were on. maybe you got lucky and got to see the niners on mnf

For real man....to me as a kid, everything he said was like Gospel. There was just something about him.

In all of football, these two were my favorite personalities. I can listen them speak ALL Day.




if anyone here hasn't caught the NFL Network's special on Ed Sabol, please watch it. "A Football Life: Ed Sabol"

I love sf and I use to live there
Born raised and lived in NJ virtually my whole life, except for brief stints in long island NY and Santa Monica. Been hooked since 1992, age 7. Friend around corner rooted for them and I followed suite cuz I didnt want to be a Giants fan. Official obsession grew from there. Rice, Young etc. Been to SF 5 times for games, including the Saints game last yr which I still can't believe. As others said, I just don't feel remotely the same watching other teams. The Niners ARE the NFL to me. Looking to move out to SF with my girlfriend soon because I love the city.
