    That article on the Giants’ CEO and a friend doing all the Muni lines in one day reminded me of the time I visited SF to ride all the streetcar lines in one afternoon. I’ve always lived in the Pasadena CA area, and in the 1960s Southern Calif. was all diesel bus except for the Orange Empire museum out beyond Riverside. Diehard trolley fans had to make the pilgrimage to MuniLand to ride revenue service cars. Getting back to Mr. Baer, I would guess that he and his buddy didn’t ride each line end to end. Still, it would put them in the same “league” with New Yorkers who try to ride all the subway lines in the least amount of time.
