It’s not every day that a piece of iconic Bay Area signage is just up for grabs. But apparently that’s exactly what happened today at Civic Center BART station. Jack sent us the following on the Muni Diaries Facbeook page:
So, someone at Civic Center scored the ultimate piece of Bart memorabilia. The workers taking them down told the guy he could have it.
So, there you have it.

This isn’t a “who’s the asshole manspreading in the disabled seats” post — no, no, there is a special circle of Muni Diaries shame for those. Look closer, sports fans.
Per CSN Bay Area Sports’ Brodie Brazil, Oakland A’s pitcher Sonny Gray and outfielder Billy Burns, standing left, are hella taking BART. Major delays were predicted due to Bay Bridge construction, and these guys are clearly paying attention.
A reader/rider on the scene, who says this was taken after Monday night’s Battle of the Bay matchup against the Giants, commented on Brazil’s FB post, saying they were “so unassuming and could have been mistaken for regular college guys with their backpacks on!”
Those backpacks don’t happen to be designed by other Oakland A’s teammates and prominently (boldly, fantastically) feature unicorns?
Bonus: Gray is featured in the green-collar baseball ad near the middle of the pic.

Got a BART story? @bartdiaries is your place to share it.
Oh shit, pop the popcorn, you guys! Here it all is, in the order in which it transpired.
Stop everything and pick up your headphones right now, because this Michael Jackson impersonator is pretty much jaw-droppingly good. Watch his moves just glide across the BART station floor. Thanks to @msdominiquediamond on Instagram for taking this excellent video, guaranteed to make you smile and watch it a few more times.
I think I’ve seen him in other outfits busking near Montgomery Street station or Powell. Anyone know this incredibly talented performer?
Ice cream carts can neither afford nor fit inside most Uber and Lyft cars, so…
Also, I’m thinking on hot enough days, dude should be able to sell his frozen treats right there on the train.

Is it just me or was Bay to Breakers this year actually a little less douchy and Muni was actually very helpful? At least in my personal experience, I waited about 30 seconds for the 5-Fulton and was sitting down comfortably on my ride back home. Miracles?
