One 'upside' to down years, the 49ers bandwagon is cleared out

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers have been on a downward trajectory the last two years (yes, I know, breaking news). One "upside", if you can call it that, is that it has cleared out the bandwagon. I think we'd all take a bunch of bandwagon fans for a team that is legitimately competing for a Super Bowl, but such is life.

I bring this up after seeing this tweet earlier today, and it made me snicker.

The Golden State Warriors bandwagon picked up serious steam this year, but is careening off the tracks in a hurry. They are trailing the Oklahoma City Thunder 3 games to 1, getting ready to host Game 5 Thursday evening. If any team can run off three straight against OKC, it would be the Warriors. However, if they come up short in one of these next three games, it will be interesting to see what the bandwagon looks like in October.

Feel free to use this as an open thread for tonight's Warriors-Thunder game. And if you're a fan of the Pittsburgh Penguins or Tampa Bay Lightning, feel free to discuss their Game 7 matchup.
