49ers fans, you're No. 24

The 49ers have kept alive a streak of 259 sellouts, an impressive feat. They also received high marks for tailgating atmosphere, which I have experienced first-hand. I would have thought 49ers fans would have ranked higher than 24th in the ESPN.com rankings. But these things are subjective. I have respect for any die-hard fans, and the 49ers certainly have plenty of them. Quite a few fans remember the Kezar Stadium days, long before Bill Walsh and Joe Montana changed football in the Bay Area forever.
