When the 49ers kick off their 2014 regular season in September, they'll be doing it in a new stadium. There's one thing small thing about San Francisco's new stadium though: It's actually in Santa Clara, a city about 40 miles south of San Francisco.

Since the 49ers will be playing their home games in Santa Clara, KJR-AM in Seattle has decided that everyone at the station will refer to the team as the Santa Clara 49ers. You know they're serious too because they made a logo and a proclamation. Some people will make one or the other, but they made both.

KJR isn't the flagship radio station of the Seahawks, but it is a 50,000 watt AM station owned by Clear Channel, so this Santa Clara 49ers thing might actually stick -- at least in Seattle. Plus, Mike Holmgren likes it, so that has to mean something.
