Just when you thought the East Coast -West Coast battle ended with Tupac and Biggie, then came this week’s Chick Fight. In one corner, a die-hard female football fan with loads of “California Love” for her San Francisco 49ers. In the other corner, a Buffalo Bills believer who thinks QB Ryan Fitzpatrick “loves it when she calls him Big Poppa!”
What never officially got settled in the hip-hop world could finally get settled on the field this Sunday when the Niners and Bills face off in a different kind of clash of the coasts. But before we get down to the gridiron nitty-gritty, get to know these superfans…and the creepy things they’ll do to try and will their teams to victory.

Team Bills: Alyssa Jung, New York
Years a fan: The womb–I never had a chance and I berate my Daddy over this on particularly painful Sundays.

Weirdest superstitions: I think the team will collapse if I don’t wear my Bills underwear; I can’t eat during the game, only at halftime; and chanting “Let’s go Buff-a-lo” will get balls caught and touchdowns scored.

Why she loves the Bills: For the same reason I’m obsessed with cats and my Nana’s Easter cookies–I grew up with them. Football and the Bills were embedded in my life from the get-go, and as I got older that love only grew. It’s a down home team, with humble players and a fan base that feels like family.

Team she hates the most? Jets (cocky thugs), Patriots (annoyingly successful), Giants (I just hate seeing success come to a fake New York team.)

Game day rituals: I HAVE to drink my morning coffee out of my favorite Buffalo Bills mug. I also refuse to read/listen/watch any pre game coverage–I need to center myself and get mentally and emotionally prepared.

Score prediction: I can’t answer this thanks to another superstition I forgot to mention– predictions will jinx the game! Whichever team wins will only win by a touchdown, maybe 10 points at the most.

Team 49ers: Antoinette Williams, Tampa, FL

Years as a fan: Approximately 32 years, 1 month, 15 days, 11 hours and 56 minutes- give or take.

Her True Fan Confession: I managed to fall for a Cowboys fan (still asking my dad for forgiveness). During the 2011-12 season, I bet my husband that whoever’s team won could dress in the winning team’s colors all season long. Needless to say, it was a bitter, bitter loss for me.

Weirdest superstitions: If our defense is doing well, but the offense needs help, I have to put on an offensive player’s jersey and vice versa. Also, if we lose a game, I won’t wear whatever I was wearing for the rest of the season.

Why she loves the 49ers: Though he won’t admit it, I think my dad wanted a boy. He raised me to be a 49er fan and made me believe that I could potentially be at least the third string quarterback for the Niners. For me, loving that team is like a religion. I’ve prayed to Bill Walsh, prayed for Alex Smith and rebuked every opposing team. It’s just in me.

Team she hates the most? The Cowboys!

Game day rituals: If it’s a home game, I eat scrambled eggs, hash browns and one biscuit before I shower. Then I put on my pre-game Niners gear and change into my game-time gear about 15 minutes before the game. If it’s an away game, I shower, put on my game-time gear, and then eat an omelet.

Score prediction: We’re coming off the hype of a shutout AND the Bills are coming to our house. It won’t be pretty. 49ers take it 34-13.
