    Nov 12, 2013

    I must confess to all of you 49er fans that I am a Seahawks fan. Since I moved to the Bay Area, I have tried to keep a low profile about my loyalty. But this far into football season, with the Seahawks and 49ers running neck-and-neck toward the Super Bowl, it’s hard to keep quiet!
