Super Bowl XLVII is underway, and Mission Local has a crew of reporters on the streets and in the bars to bring you the latest.

A crowd spills out of Giordano Brothers on 16th Street, and hungry fans are being fed up the street.

Residents voiced their thoughts on a possible 49ers celebration.

Reporter Marta Franco says that Napper Tandy on 24th Street is full, and they aren’t letting anyone else in. But Connie Rivera of Mixcoatl Arts and Crafts is enjoying the crowds. She says it’s an excellent day to promote small businesses. “We are getting a very good response,” says Rivera, as she sells 49ers merchandise in front of the store. “This is like a party….a big day for us.”

The halftime show is popular with fans. “The cheering for Destiny’s Child is the loudest cheer I’ve heard since I’ve been out here,” Franco says.

The 49ers are behind 28-6 in the third quarter, but some worry that, win or lose, there will be chaos in the streets. “If they win, somebody is gonna burn busses,” says Leslie Hicks, who works at The Hideout at Dalva, but is watching the game at Delirium. “If they don’t, I hope no one dies!”

 

Play has resumed. Can the 49ers come back?

Vernice Tafao, watching the game at Gestalt, says that she’ll always be a fan, and will be proud of the 49ers even if they lose tonight. “We made it this far, even when everybody doubted us,” she says.

The 49ers are running out of time. 1:46 left in the fourth quarter.

Police waiting at the doors of Dalva said that they haven’t had any problems tonight.

The 49ers use their last time out.

 

Yes, it is over. Final score: Ravens: 34, 49ers: 31

More than 20 police officers are gathered at 16th Street. But it’s a quiet post-game scene.

 

Mission Local reporter Rigo Hernandez says that riot police are walking down Mission Street carrying their helmets. Fans are calm.

Party over. People are just trying to get home.

“We made it to the NFC game last year, we made it to the Super Bowl this year, next year we are going to win it,” says Michael Thomas outside the Napper Tandy. “There is no reason to be upset if you’re a 49ers fan.”

After the game, a group stood outside Casanova on Valencia Street. “Not so much of a let down, but a good game,” said Anthony McCain, who lives at 16th and Guerrero. “I’m scared of all the zip ties out this evening.”

Others were too upset to speak. A group of four young men in 49ers gear walked southbound from Mission and 16th Street. When asked how they were feeling, one of them responded, “I can’t talk right now.”

    Helicopters over the neighborhood from the end of game until now, about 8:30. Sirens rushing around outside about 8pm. Keep reporting!

  2. chuck oh

    Anyone know why the helicopters are still over Mission Street (almost 9pm)? Or how to make them go away so we can have quiet?

    I can’t hear anything else happening on Mission (I’m 1 block from Mission st.)

    • tessa

      News helicopters continuously over lower 24th street until after 11:30pm. . . TV news at 9, 10, and 11 showed us live copter feeds of the Mission streets, reporting that the streets were, wait for it, quiet! The g-d- noise from the news copters was the worst “response” to the game in this part of town.
