Super Fans Cheer On Their Super Bowl Teams

Super Fans Cheer On Their Super Bowl Teams
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Whether you watched it for the game, commercials or camaraderie, thousands of people across KELOLAND had their eyes glued to the TV set for the Super Bowl. And two fans in KELOLAND say they are their team biggest fans.

Dick Knapper is a man of few words, except when you talk about hunting, cars and of course the San Francisco 49ers.

"I love them. I'm addicted. I have no choice," Knapper said.

Thousands of miles from San Francisco, Knapper says before moving to Sioux Falls he grew up in Minnesota. But spent a short time living in California and from there he has grown a love for the 49ers.

"I've actually been to Candlestick Park and kissed the ground," Knapper said.

With a full dedication to 49ers memorabilia, Knapper says he has one prized position.

"I'm pretty sure I'm the only guy in the Midwest who has those pictures that are autographed by Joe Montana and Jerry Rice. They mean a lot to me," said Knapper.

Only a short distance away from Knapper and several miles from Baltimore, you can find Igor Verbovskiy.

"Every single year that I've been rooting for them I'm just here, waiting," Verbovskiy said.

Verbovskiy says he has only been a Baltimore Ravens for a few years, but he's impressed with what they do.

"You go on YouTube and look up big NFL hits and most of them are the Ravens," Verbovskiy said.

Looking up to Ray Lewis, Verbovskiy says he admires him.

"Ray Lewis, he puts his heart into it, it's pretty cool," Verbovskiy said.

If there is one thing Verbovskiy has learned from Lewis, it's how to celebrate a victory mimicking Lewis' trademark dance.
