What with the stirring, stunning and ultimately stimulating football contest Saturday, it'd be hard not to be whipped up into a fresh frenzy for your San Francisco 49ers, who host the New York football Giants on Sunday for the right to compete in the Super Bowl.
But chances are many of the hooting and hollering fans bedecked in fresh red and gold duds have never ventured out...
49ers quarterback Alex Smith was drafted No. 1 from Utah in 2005, one year after the Giants took Eli Manning with the top pick out of Ole Miss.

With the possibility of heavy rains forecast for Sunday’s NFC championship game in San Francisco, the prevailing assumption is that the run-first San Francisco 49ers would have a distinct advantage over the pass-first New York Giants.
