    It was mayhem.They planned for 50,000 and 500,000 showed up. People on top of buses fighting, bottles thrown. Cars caught in the crowds with people reaching in and snatching necklaces off necks. Parade rerouted, mob frenzy running to civic center.

      Interesting article. I thought this part was telling: “Jan. 24: The San Francisco 49ers defeat the Cincinnati Bengals 26-21 in the Super Bowl in Detroit, and the people fill the streets of San Francisco to celebrate. It is one of the largest public rallies in the city since the end of World War II and slows only after baton-wielding police squads break up the mobs in North Beach and along Union Street.”

      So 25 years ago when the celebratory rioting of post-championship SF erupted it centered in North Beach. Now the epicenter is the Mission.

    Says a lot that your first Niners related posts are on Super Bowl Sunday, and then lamenting the lack of party after not getting it. Sigh.

    I lost a couple of bucks betting on the Bengals. In those days, 49er followers thought they had few illusions about the home team.
