I live in PA where there are not many 49er fans...Last night game was crushing to my kids ( 9& 11) but they woke up today and insisted on wearing their Niner gear to school!
When I asked why, their response "we don't want the other kids in class to think we aren't fans anymore".

Proud of my kids and the young men on the team
I am originally from Washington state but my grandpa was a 49ers fan. I have a photo of me not even a week old on a 49ers gold jacket with all of the super bowl pins on it. I have been a fan ever since. I may not be from San Fran but I am a niners fan for life.
Steve Young. Also they're the local team. Bay area native for 20 years now
Was born in 89 and became a fan because my older cousin was a huge fan. All my memories are basically all the dark years and 2 super bowl losses. I want to experience a super bowl victory so bad!
Watching us smoke denver 55-10
I was 7 when my dad wanted me to watch them crush the Dolphins in the SB on tv. I was hooked.

I lived in VA and was born in 84. I remember going to a school bookfair in kindergarten and I saw a poster of Steve Young. I was enamored with the colors and outfits at the time, so I bought the poster and took it home.

There I started questioning my dad about who Steve Young was and about the 49ers in general. Been hooked eversince.

At age 6 i was watching the 1990 NFCC game with my pa and loved the 49ers colors. After the game I remember my dad saying it's all over and I was so sad and confused by what he meant it "being over". Since then it just grew on me.

Lol love this!

Third generation Niner fan who began watching in the late 70's with my dad as soon as I was able to understand enough to know that touchdowns were good and referees were bad.
because it was the thing to do at 11 years old in 1981 when I lived in the Bay.
