"So you must really be in love with her to wear this jersey?," we asked the boyfriend.

The Faithful sent the 49ers off to Las Vegas in wet weather, while the ABC7 News crew spent nearly 10 hours flying there because of it.

Former Miss California and current Warriors in-arena host Catherine Liang is in town. She's involved in Lunar New Year events at the Palazzo at The Venetian Resort. Also involved in cheering for her team.

"Does former Miss California lose her voice when she cheers for the Niners?," we asked Liang.

"Oh, all the time, even for the Warriors too!"

Rob's wife was pretty straight to the point about it.
