Supervisor Gerardo Sandoval's in a Monster Park of his own making, after his proposal before the Board of Supes to support the Seahawks was greeted with a cry of "Offsides!" from the red-and-gold faithful. "Sandoval sounds like a traitor," announces the head of the Santa Clara Niners booster club. A Niners spokesman said the resolution "represents an appalling lack of loyalty to San Francisco." That guy's just probably happy no one's asking him questions about videos for a change!
Sandoval says, "Come on, give me a break, it's just a way to have fun and help a few bar owners," noting that sports bars have seen a precipitous decline in attendance since the Niners limped to a 4-12 season this last year and that Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren is a San Francisco native. But as of this morning, Niners fans vowed to show up at today's Board of Supes meeting at 2 p.m. to protest against the proposal. Well, given how bad the Niners defense is, we're sure the proposition will pass 41-3.Picture of a Niners-Seahawks game in 2003 from the NFL website
