Niners fans celebrate their spectacular win over the Packers on social media

San Francisco 49ers fans celebrated the team’s dramatic win over the Green Bay Packers on social media Saturday night.

Fans hailed the 13-10 win over the top-seeded team and subsequent move to the NFC Championship Game, which marks just one win for the Bay Area team to reach the Super Bowl. A Twitter user exclaimed, “We just SHOCKED THE WORLD!!!!” Fans shared photos of themselves screaming in victory from their homes or from the snowy grandstands in Wisconsin.

On Twitter, many fans expressed their joy in particular at the loss of Aaron Rodgers, the quarterback of Green Bay. Memes poured in, the majority of which poked fun at Rodgers for his repeated public stance against getting the coronavirus vaccine.

“Man, except for that first drive, Aaron Rodgers avoided the end zone like it was science fact,” @RoFlo tweeted. “Should he have been inoculated against DEEBO-19?” @DLind tweeted. “Aaron Rodgers will just have to go home and drown his sorrows in ivermectin”, @KamBrothers tweeted.

The town halls of San Francisco and South of San Francisco were lit red and gold and fireworks exploded in Bay Area neighborhoods on Saturday night. San Francisco International Airport was also lit up in red and gold, with airport officials Tweeter, “Well that was ‘special’! Congratulations Niners! On to the championship!”

The Mayor of London Breed tweeted a video of Talanoa Hufanga and Jimmy Garoppolo celebrating the victory in a hallway at the stadium, simply adding, “BANG BANG!!!” San Francisco District 6 Supervisor Matt Haney called the victory “legendary” and posed for a photo with District 10 Supervisor Shamann Walton, each wearing red Niners jerseys.

Governor Gavin Newsom said on Twitter the game demonstrated 49ers “football at its best – whatever the conditions, never mind being an underdog.”
