Steve Mahoney notes that he didn't play football in high school — “I was kind of small.” So he found a way onto the field at Candlestick Park along with the San Francisco 49ers by gaining a few hundred pounds — of motorcycle.
We've written a bit about the Department of Public Works steam-cleaner's dream gig whooping up the pregame crowd by roaring around the field on his custom red-and-gold Harley-Davidson emblazoned with a Niners logo. It turns out Mahoney's dream isn't done yet. Over the weekend, he reports, team officials called him up and invited him back — for Monday Night Football.
In a word, Mahoney is stoked; when he utters the term “Monday Night Football,” each word grows progressively louder. “I'll do whatever they want me to do,” he said of the Dec. 14 contest vs. Arizona.
