49ers 2012 Divisional Championship: Last 2 Minutes from the Nosebleed Seats

Keith Mathews@macguru05Correspondent IIIMay 18, 2012

San Francisco NFL fans have spent energy, time and emotion on cheering on, complaining about, theorizing and contemplating their 49ers. As one of them, I have watched from the affordable seat: my easy chair in the living room.

I am currently out of the state, so traveling for a home game is a bit impossible for me. As a result, I see the game from the point of view that the NFL and the broadcasters decide is best, but I do miss the almost maniacal fervor of the stadium. So, sometimes it is just best to sit back and watch an amateur clip of the last two minutes of one game to savor the flavor of fan devotion.

This 13-minute clip, posted on YouTube the day after the game by Daddyoh08, was shot from the nosebleed seats of the end zone during the last two minutes of playing time of the New Orleans Saints vs. the San Francisco 49ers divisional playoff game at Candlestick on January 14, 2012.

It gives a perspective that is worlds different from one that one would see from the network broadcast. It shows the emotional reaction of fans in moment as the last few seconds ticked away.

Try, I dare you, to stay in your seat as you watch. Sometimes a differing slant on an event is just what we need to be able to put an event in its proper place in history.
