Baltimore born Nancy Pelosi backs Niners!

18 posts in this topic

Long time Baltimore natives may have known this but it comes as news to me! To be fair, she's rooting for the Niners and not against the Ravens.

Hometown doesn't mean anything - just ask Yankees fan LeBron James. Besides, she's been living in California since the 70s I think, so she was there through the whole Bill Walsh-George Seifert Era - I can't imagine not being a fan of that team after that time period.

People should be true to their colors! Just because you live someplace else doesn't mean you're supposed to just change teams. Not saying you can't change teams either, but it should be because you like them and not just because everyone else is on the bandwagon.

Good for you!

I'm just fine with that. We're getting a ton of support from rappers, Dre, Lil Wayne, and Joe Budden even did a Sportscenter interview backing us!
[/quote] Dr Dre was asked about his pick for the superbowl..... he said " Ravens, im a fan of Ray Lewis"....... love that!

I was raised in northern California during the Montana era and was a niners fan. They're still my favorite NFC team. I even bought a bunch of niners stuff for the baby (due in May) of a relative who is a big niners fan. I live near Baltimore now and am a huge Ravens fan. I don't see why it is a big deal to support the local team, even if it means leaving behind my past favorites.

Plus, what politician would be stupid enough to publically support a distant team against the local team?

So what? There are Ravens fans in San Fran. Why can't there be Niners fans in Maryland? Where you live shouldn't have an impact on who you root for.

She's[b] [unintelligent],[/b] of course she likes the 49ers

That may or may not be true but....

[color=#252525][font=Helvetica, Arial]"Pelosi [b]says her late father, as mayor of Baltimore, built Baltimore Memorial Stadium[/b] and that she has long been a fan of Baltimore sports teams, including the Ravens"[/font][/color]

[color=#252525][font=Helvetica, Arial]Thought that was an interesting irony.[/font][/color]
