Bay to Breakers at 100: Sheriff to Help Out – Mobile Jails Coming – Yet Heart Attacks Kill More than Alcohol

[UPDATE: . And here are the general details of BtoB and see a bunch of photos from 2010 here and here's the latest about BtoB]

1. Is Anschutz Entertainment Group really “paying to use the streets” on any given BtoB Sunday? If so, what’s the rate? Can I get the same rate and then have the SFPD enforce the particular laws that I want them to enforce?

The kind of thing the Bay to Breakers people are trying to stop:

2.  What’s that, AEG? You’re super close to getting a sponsor to replace ING? Let’s hope it’s Bud Light, you know, like the way it was before, before the time C. Montgomery Burns bought the race. Oh that’s right, alcohol is illegal on the streets that you’ve bought and paid for, right AEG? Anyway, let’s hope it’s some kind of consumer product, you know, so the boycott can gain traction…

3. Are you really going to put people into mobile jails, AEG? Or, maybe you’ll have your do-boys at the Sheriff’s Department do you bidding? All right. Would you have put Mayor Gavin Newsom into a mobile unit for not registering, the way he done this year?

4. Oh, that’s right, your security guards are  just going to eject people off of your property and hope the “bandit” runners don’t try to get back in the race again. Good luck with that. How many hundreds of security guards are you going to hire?

5. Now, has anyone died from a drug or alcohol overdose in B2B history? Not that I’m aware of. But people die of heart attacks all the time at the Bay to Breakers, right? By now, you know where and when this kind of thing will happen. Why not pay to have people standing by with defibrillators to help out before an ambulance can arrive? Oh, I see, you don’t really give a romeo’s alpha about health issues unless it furthers your goals, unless you can use it to justify you getting your way, like when you you talk about 30 ambulance calls for OD’ing in 2010 and whatnot. I see what you’re doing there, BtoB.

6. Bay to Breakers General Manager Angela Fang called the measures “imperative to the preservation of the event.” I see what you’re doing there again, BtoB. In your eyes, you’re the side that’s preserving the race. And those People for the Preservation of the Bay2Breakers, you know, the people you’re against, I suppose they’re not for the preservation of  BtoB. I don’t know, maybe Sam Singer is the wrong tool for this job…

It’s the same thing every year – lot’s of talk about what will happen, but when the rubber meets the road, none of this crap happens and it’s just same old civic event. Aren’t you tired of this by now, Angela?

See you next year…
