Have noticed a number of you are 49ers fans, yet you don't support other Bay Area teams which got me wondering, how did you end up with that outcome?
How do you support say the 49ers yet support a hockey team half way across the country?
Be interested to hear your stories as to why you support who you do in each sport.
For me, I chose the 49ers based on a keyring I got as a kid and then watching the sport on tv as a kid also.
As somebody not from San Francisco, it made sense to me, to also support the San Francisco Giants. I mean, why just choose say the Red Wings or the Rangers, that would just be too easy and boring. That then led onto me following the Sharks. Also, if I was ever going to visit (Which I now have) all of my teams are in one area, so there's the chance of combining 2-3 games/sports with one vacation. (Which I did this year and will do again) And let's face it, who wants to visit somewhere like Detroit or Cleveland for a vacation or part of a vacation.
I do have a good friend in Chicago which led me to following The Bulls and the Blackhawks (and have flown over and seen them both play live) also and when I was a kid, I always used to play with the Bulls on NBA Jam and the Blackhawks on NHLPA93 on the Mega Drive (Happy Days!) which kind of got me into supporting both of them.
