49ers and Seahawks Fans Unite to Help Homeless Boy: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The tension between the 49ers and Seattle Seahawks is well-documented, but it appears that a 15-year-old homeless youngster from Kirkland, Wash., has brought out the best in both fan bases.


Ronnie Andrews became a hero to 49ers fans everywhere last week when he showed up to the Seahawks` Super Bowl parade wearing 49ers` clothing from head-to-toe. According to a story on the KGO television web site, someone shot a video of Andrews surrounded by Seahawks fans. Now more than $26,000 and counting has been raised for this teen."

Recently there have been a few cases of fans getting severely beat up for having the temerity to wear the visiting team`s jersey in the stadium of the home team.

Andrews showed tremendous bravery (stupidity?) by showing up at the Seahawks` Super Bowl parade clad from head-to toe in 49ers gear.

Andrews is a ward of the state, he lives in shelters, and he is essentially homeless. The fans of the 49ers and Seattle Seahawks are bitter rivals, but they have united to help this young man.
