In case you didn't know: The Golden State hosted the first-ever Super Bowl back in 1967, and has been the site of 10 out of 50 big games—making California second (tied with Louisiana) only to Florida, which has hosted 15 Super Bowls.
You might get a little confused driving up to the new home of the Niners in Santa Clara. At first glance, Levi’s Stadium looks a lot like a Levi’s store—especially since there’s nary a 49ers logo in sight—but you won’t find any denim wares inside the foodie haven (which also happens to host football games).
The epic year for San Francisco sports continues! If the 49ers succeed this Sunday, they'll become the second team in NFL history with 6 Super Bowl wins (sharing the honor with the Steelers). The 49ers have never been to a Super Bowl and lost (knock on wood!), so that's pretty exciting.
The world of Bay Area sports can be a whirlwind–unless you have someone to take you by the hand and show the way. That's where Sean Swaby comes in–every week, he'll highlight all the most important things going down on the local sports scene.
For our column Jams We Love, we're turning you onto the songs that keep us going every day.

San Francisco! Fire it up for football season! The action starts tonight, but Sunday's where it's at for Niner fans. They're favored to win their division this season (virtual chest bump) and are opening against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday at 1:15 pm.
Couch-watchers, we respect you (kinda). But for those who need to venture out and revel in that communal adrenaline, here are some solid choices for football-watching bars. Favorite bar not in here? Tell us where you go on Any Given Sunday in the comments.
