This Week’s City…

Two for one special! Welcome to the Bay Area!

Similar to New York City, the Bay Area sports two teams in MLB and the NFL that don’t see eye to eye. But while these teams play in two different cities, they’re rivalries are unlike those in other sports because each other’s city is a mere trip over the Bay Bridge from one another. Furthermore, the two cities share one basketball team, the Warriors, and that fan base creates one of the loudest in the entire Association. Also, though San Francisco has seen the most success recently between the Bill Walsh 49ers and the 2010 World Series Champion Giants, its Oakland that has the lavish history with Reggie Jackson, Rickey Henderson, Jim Plunkett and John Madden. Oh, and an owner named Al Davis.
