Another weekend, another Muni Fail to the game. I got passed by three 22 Fillmore buses before I could get on one. I'm even more convinced now that more buses on routes are not the answer with the constant special events on the weekend. It's a North South subway. Even if the J just went underground at Market Street and continued North to the Marina it would be worth it. In any event, I had another exciting Saturday watching the Texas game and went to the Red Bull Soap Box Derby which was only a few blocks from my house.
Muni LRV at Dolores Park
The Derby had an attendance of 75,000.
People were hanging from windows and fire escapes
Lots of trespassers on the private ROW
Soap Box Vehicles. A hamster wheel that spun and a baseball
Here are a few Videos from the Derby. My favorite was the Death Star, but the fastest I saw was the fire truck....woosh.
