Giants-Themed Cable Car Coming to San Francisco Streets

A cable car makes its way down the hill in San Francisco. Soon, one of these will be looking more like a NY Giants fan than a San Francisco trademark.

You'll soon see a Giants-themed cable car traveling the streets of San Francisco. And no, it's not the Orange-and-Black Giants.

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee will decorate a cable car in red and blue flags for the New York Giants, in order to make good on a bet with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Lee and Bloomberg placed the wager for the NFC Championship Game... between the 49ers and the Giants last weekend.

Lee also agreed to send Boudin sourdough bread to Bloomberg if the Giants beat the 49ers.

Mayor Lee's office says they're sending the bread this week, and the cable car will be all decked out for Superbowl Sunday on February 5th.

The 49ers lost to the New York Giants at Candlestick Park in overtime last Sunday, 17-20.
