Ballsy 49ers Fan Decides Football Victory Makes Him Invincible to Driving Laws

Posted By on Tue, Jan 22, 2013 at 7:21 AM

San Francisco cops noted unruly Niners fans kept them plenty busy over the weekend as some chose to bask in football glory by boozing and beating each other up.

But we are wondering if the cops ever caught sight of this particularly ballsy Niners fan, who chose a more enterprising way of celebrating S.F.'s ascension to the Super Bowl. As you can see, this driver went ahead and blocked out his (or her) license plate with a crappy homemade "Atlanta Got Served" sign, which we spotted near City Hall.

The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
