This, that and the other thing:

• If you're a San Francisco sports fan, who's got it better?

You're still finding black and orange confetti in the pockets of the sweater you wore to the Giants' second World Series victory parade in early November, and now you're planning a Super Bowl party and keeping your fingers crossed you'll get another day off from work sometime next week to attend a 49ers march up Market Street to the Civic Center.

How cool would it be to see Giants manager Bruce Bochy, wearing a 49ers baseball cap, chauffeuring 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh, wearing a Giants baseball hat, in a classic convertible – the Giants' 2012 World Series trophy on the seat next to Bochy, the 49ers' sixth Super Bowl trophy held by Harbaugh.

But we're getting ahead of ourselves. There is still a matter of Sunday's Super Bowl against the Baltimore Ravens to be played in New Orleans.

• If you could have dinner with either Giants catcher Buster Posey or 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who would you choose?

Posey could tell you what it was like to go from the highest mountain in baseball one season to its darkest depths the following year, back to the pinnacle in Year 3. Kaepernick could tell you about his humble beginnings in Turlock, his rise at Nevada and starting in the Super Bowl in just his 10th NFL start.

Just make sure whomever you pick pays for dinner.

• If you could grant either the 49ers or the Giants a decade-long dynasty, while the other suffered 10 consecutive losing seasons, which team would you choose to dominate its sport? Much like Jack and Jackie Harbaugh, parents of 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and Ravens coach John Harbaugh, most San Francisco fans could never take sides against the other.
