Despite the fact the 49ers played a killer game yesterday, we still have one ting to celebrate: Niners fans managed to not kill each other.

And while there were no deaths reported at Candlestick Park during yesterday's championship match, there were plenty of drunks wallowing in their sorrows over such a heartbreaking match.

According to the cops, a total of 29 people were arrested during yesterday's game at Candlestick Park, 16 of which were outside the stadium and 13 inside. In addition, 110 people were tossed from the kicked out of the stadium, most of whom were just being drunken idiots.

For instance, one fan, who may or may not have had too much to drink, reportedly assaulted two police

officers inside the stadium. That only provoked the cops to douse him

with pepper spray. Incidentally, a woman and another police officer

standing nearby were also affected by the pepper spray. Both were treated at the scene, police said.

Meanwhile, a man was arrested and charged with a felony after he allegedly threatened a police officer. Because he had his 2-year-old son with him, the man was also charged with child endangerment.

Other than that, police found some fans with counterfeit tickets, but none were arrested for selling them.

  • 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.'"
