Local 49ers Fans Back From New Orleans

Posted: Updated:

Remember the Super Bowl, super fans we introduced you to last week. They're back from New Orleans.

"Oh my god! I'm telling you how electrifying it is to be there with 70-something thousand fans and the energy comes out!" says Pam Vickerson.

Today we got a look at all the stuff they got to add to their already large San Francisco memorabilia collection from Super Bowl 47.

"We picked up programs and t-shirts and these cool ticket holders...we brought an extra bag with us and when we left it was full. Of stuff...full of everything...so...." says Bev Reuter.

What about the infamous power outage?

"There was a big flash and the scoreboards flickered and we knew it was a power outage. The snack bar was totally blacked out," says Reuter.

Vickerson adds, "The lady next to me got anxious so I got anxious 'cause it's wasnt just the lights it was the air conditioner went out.."

But 30 minutes later - when the lights were back on - it seemed their team was on too.

"After the power outage it was score score score and the 49er fans woke up and the team all at the same time!" says Reuter.

Even though the outcome wasn't what they wanted Bev and Pam had a great time.

And being die-hard fans they're optimistic that the 49ers and former Nevada standout Colin Kaepernick will be back for another try at the championship next year.
