Hey Super Bowl 50 committee, Muni wires are actually beautiful

The Super Bowl 50 Committee plans to ask SFMTA to take down the overhead wires on Market Street during the sportsball fiesta, but honestly, we think the overhead wires are kind of nice in a photo op.

Next year’s Super Bowl will be held in Santa Clara, but the eight-day fan village will be in Justin Herman Plaza, where the mayor told KCBS that there won’t be room for the homeless or anyone. The Examiner reports that Supervisor Jane Kim confirmed the Super Bowl 50 Committee‘s desire to pull down Muni wires.

No decisions have been made about the potential request, but the Examiner says that pulling down the overhead wires could cost a “seven-figure number” requiring “lots of overtime” to remove correctly. The F, 6, 21, and 31 lines run on overhead wires in the area.

I actually think Muni overhead wires make for really beautiful photos, as evidenced by several of the photographers we’ve featured on Instagram. Maybe the Super Bowl 50 Committee can take a look at a few of these beauties?
