New York, New York – With forecasts of a severe snowstorm in the East Coast on February 2, the National Football League (NFL) made a bold decision today to move the venue for Super Bowl XLVIII from the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey to Candlestick Park in San Francisco. The announcement caused elation on the part of 49er fans despite the fact that the championship trophy is being contested by and between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks. The 49ers lost to the Seahawks in last week’s NFC championship.

“That we get to host the Super Bowl is almost as sweet as being in the top two teams,” the fans declared, adding that nothing can prevent them from wearing their 49er hats, jerseys and jackets to the game.

The NFL decision came on the heels of the  snowstorm that blanketed New York and other areas of the Eastern seaboard this week. The league said it cannot gamble on holding the Super Bowl when meteorologists cannot give any assurance that the February 2 game would be snow-free.  MetLife is an open-air stadium.  “We’d rather play under a rainy condition in San Francisco than in a New Jersey snowstorm,” the NFL said.

49er fans said that having a game one last time – a Super Bowl at that – would be a fantastic way to say goodbye to the “Stick.”  The 49ers will be moving into a new stadium in Santa Clara this August.
