On the drive in to see the cats this morning, we saw a group of Niner fans in full red and gold regalia standing on Brewster near El Camino, waiting for the bus to Candlestick. And as we tended to the front garden in the early afternoon, the street was very quiet. Hardly any traffic, and just a few passers-by. This is how things are when the Niners are playing. You have the Bay Area pretty much to yourself. I checked the score, and saw they were ahead going into the 4th quarter, so I went out for a run through the neighborhood. Towards the end of the run, I started to see people leaving homes and getting in their cars. Game Day gatherings must be over. And I reluctantly returned the Bay Area to its citizens.
