Was it the tenacious defense? Perhaps. Frank Gore rumbling through the 'Stick like a runaway train? Could be. Steve Mahoney leading the 49ers out of the gate on his custom Niners Harley? You can't scientifically prove otherwise.

In any event, the home team dumped the Arizona Cardinals last night, 24-9
, on Monday Night Football -- marking the second time in as many chances that the team has gone on to victory after Department of Public Works steam-cleaner Mahoney has whooped up the crowd by rumbling his chopper onto Candlestick Park's turf.

Considering he isn't paid for his services -- Mahoney's a city native who used to peddle seat-covers at Kezar and bleeds red and gold -- we think he's earned his keep.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
