ESPN The Magazine’s “Bay Area Issue,” on newsstands today, explores what its editors have dubbed “the most thrilling place in sports.” Consider: The San Francisco Giants won the World Series; the 49ers came within five yards of a Super Bowl ring; the Warriors pulled off the NBA Western Conference’s biggest turnaround; the Sharks nearly upset the 2012 Stanley Cup champs L.A. Kings in the 2013 NHL playoffs; and the A’s have posted consecutive 90-plus victory seasons.
In producing this issue, The Mag worked with Facebook to survey allegiances in every single town in the Bay Area — 162 towns across 10 counties, to be exact. Front Row caught up with Deputy Editor Bruce Kelley and Senior Editor Megan Greenwell — both former Bay Area residents — for the inside scoop on The Mag’s third annual city-specific issue.
After a rocky start, the Philadelphia Eagles (3-4) have a chance to salvage a .500 record for the season’s first half if they can beat the visiting Chicago Bears (4-3) on ESPN’s Monday Night Football (8:30 p.m.).
In the video above, the MNF crew of commentator Mike Tirico and analysts Ron Jaworski and Jon Gruden answers your Facebook questions about this game, the San Francisco 49ers, the Green Bay Packers and more.
