I live in San Francisco and sometimes being a Bay Area sports fan can be hard. You see the last time a team has won a Championship was in 1995 with the 49ers. Since then we have been close. The Giants went to the World Series in 2002 but they lost in game 7. The Sharks have gone to the Conference Championship but never made the Stanley Cup. There is so many times we have been close.

However this decade that may change. The Sharks are the best team in the NHL, This just might be the Giants year,and Kurt Warner has retired giving a huge break for the 49ers. You see your team could do it this year.
