SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – Thousands of Giants fans are expected to descend upon Super Bowl City in San Francisco this Saturday to protest what they are calling a city-sponsored event that discriminates against baseball fans.

Although Super Bowl 50 between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers will actually be held at Levi’s Stadium in the city of Santa Clara, San Francisco has organized a week-long event in the  Embarcadero featuring concerts, fireworks, vendor displays, street dancing, food and booze, and viewing of the championship game live via jumbo screens.

“We have never seen anything like this before,” the protesters said.  “The 49ers are not even in the game so why is the city of San Francisco making such a big deal out of Super Bowl 50 ?”

The Giants fans feel insulted that San Francisco has not done a similar event for their baseball team in the past (when the Giants were not in the World Series).

They plan to chain themselves to BART and Muni trains and block mass transportation to and from Embarcadero.

The San Francisco Police Department is advising  football fans to refrain from wearing  49er or any other NFL team t-shirts or paraphernalia for their own safety and to prevent any untoward confrontation.
