The 49ers faithful are gearing up for another Super Bowl appearance facing the Kansas City Chiefs – a rematch from 2019 when the Chiefs won. The stakes are high for San Francisco which hasn’t claimed a Super Bowl win in 29 years. Meanwhile, Kansas City wants to clinch dynasty status with a third victory in five years. And, somehow amid all the usual talk of strategy and quarterbacks, pop princess Taylor Swift has become a central player in this game off the field. We’ll talk about what this game means for the Bay and how the faithful plan to show up for their team. And, we want to hear from Niner fans: what does this Super Bowl mean to you?
