FanPost

When and why did you become a 9ers fan?

So I thought this would be an interesting idea. It seems we have posters from all over the country on this site, which leads me to wonder how we all came to be 49er fans. I will start things off.

I was 10 years old and my family went over to my grandparent's house for a Superbowl party (giving away my age a bit). When we got there, my grandpa said if we were going to watch the game, we had to pick a team. I had never watched a football game, as my parents aren't fans, I didn't know a thing about it. The choices were San Fran and Denver. I picked the 49ers. No idea why, just random chance. Rooted for them ever since. Now I shudder to think how close I was to becoming a Broncos fan. Subsequently I decided to root for the SF Giants too, that next summer (my first year in little league and the first time I took interest in baseball. I don't really care for the NBA very much, though I use to root for the Bulls because my sister did. Hockey? I'm from Arkansas.

So, when and why did you start rooting for the 49ers?
