The Empire State Building on Friday night showed off colors to celebrate the Lunar New Year, and that probably didn't light up Giants fans too much.

The building was lit up in red and yellow to celebrate the upcoming year of the dragon, but the lighting evokes the colors of the San Francisco 49ers—the team that faces off against the Giants Sunday for the NFC title.

But don't despair, Giants fans: the building will be lit in big blue Saturday and Sunday in honor of the team, followed by a return to red and yellow on Monday for the official start of Lunar New Year.
