Seriously? Hard to believe you love the Giants THAT much if you would trade BOTH of their WS titles for one SB trophy. I can only figure that you must be really young and never enjoyed the many SB wins. I wouldn't trade even one of the Giants WS wins for a Niner SB. I went through too many years of suffering with the Giants to ever do that.
I wasnt old enough to enjoy the 49ers 5 SB titles, but I still wouldnt trade the Giants 2 WS titles for a 6th Lombardi. Somehow seeing the Giants win the WS seems so much rarer and more special. The World Series might be the hardest championship to win among the major team sports. Its such a long season, and so many things have to go right on top of being good. Only 4 teams end up making the playoffs, and you have to beat the very best in a series 3 straight times.
I have a feeling were going to see the 49ers win at least 1 more here in the next few years anyways. Were set up to make a legit run at a SB for years to come, whereas its hard to say when the Giants will get that chance again.
