San Francisco 49ers fans’ emotions went up and down during Super Bowl

Sunday’s Super Bowl was a mixture of emotions, with San Francisco 49ers fans excited during part of the game and despondent when it looked like the Baltimore Ravens would win.

Nevertheless, fans watching the game at The Stadium at Turner Road and Church Street remained optimistic that the 49ers would come back from their first-half deficit.

“The Niners have started like this before,” Lodi resident Jeana Garabrant said at the end of the first quarter with the Ravens led 7-3. “They will come back.”

Dustin Stockdale of Lodi felt the same way.

“There’s a lot of time, and we never give up,” Stockdale said, even though Baltimore was leading 28-6 at the end of the third quarter.

The Stadium was actually less crowded than it was during the regular season, Lodi resident Scott Cameron said. That’s because fans go to Super Bowl parties with family and friends rather than head to a restaurant or a watering hole. The Stadium was a lot more crowded two weeks ago, when the 49ers played the Atlanta Falcons in the National Football Conference championship game, Cameron said.

Since the Super Bowl was in New Orleans, The Stadium served some Cajun food for the occasion, including gumbo and rice, pulled pork with Cajun sauce, potato salad and cole slaw.

Fans who watched the Super Bowl at The Stadium said they enjoy watching the 49ers there because it’s fun to share a good time with other fans.

“I enjoy it with friends,” said Ashley Shroyer of Lodi. “This is a family atmosphere.”

Shad Lusk, also from Lodi, said, “I like this place, the camaraderie.”

As the game ended, Cameron was philosophical over the 49ers’ loss.

“It doesn’t look good,” he said. “They’ve got it better than us.”

    Iam glad they lost. They have the most annoying fans ever and most of them so called fans don't even know the name of the quarterback or coach.

They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
