Cheers can't help 49ers
A packed house of screaming and cheering San Francisco 49er fans at Hi Tops sports bar in the Castro, including Philip Garcia and Ivan Ferrer, was not enough for the team to win its sixth Super Bowl Sunday, February 3. While the Niners made a comeback late in the game, it was the Baltimore Ravens who carried home the Vince Lombardi Trophy with a 34-31 victory. The Bay Area Reporter, which lost a wager with the Washington Blade, has sent a check for $1,000 to Chase Brexton Health Services in Baltimore, which was the Blade's charity of choice.
