First of all there is HUGE support for both teams. Obviously right this second it's a baseball town, how can it not be? If we can win it will be the first ever Championship for the Giants in SF and a real real nice ballpark. The 49ers on the other hand have been irrelevant for 8 years and play in maybe the worst stadium in the NFL. Yet still sell out and still have huge support.
Obviously now there is a huge bandwagon for the Giants, a real big chunk of the Giants fans you see around town today probably couldn't name more than 2 players about 2-3 months ago.
that's true, but during the year, even years where the Giants suck, you see Giants gear all over the place. I almost never saw Niners gear, except on gamedays.
I wouldn't say there was a hugely noticeable difference between Giants and 49ers support before we made the run for the playoffs. Most people I know are bigger football fans than baseball though. So maybe I'm biased.
It's cool to see the huge support show up for the Giants, but I know it's way more special for me and the real hardcore Giants fans.
