    The San Francisco 49ers are looking to make it to Super Bowl 57 by way of defeating the Philadelphia Eagles. Here’s the last time they won the Lombardi Trophy. The San Francisco 49ers are one win away from reaching the Super Bowl, ironically for the second consecutive year. After losing to the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game last year, the 49ers will look to clinch a spot in Super Bowl 57 by defeating the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Jan. 29. When it comes to the 49ers, they are no strangers to hoisting the Lombardi Trophy at the end of the season. But when was the last time they won the Super Bowl?When was the last time the 49ers won the Super Bowl?The last time San Francisco won the Super Bowl was back in the 1994 season.

    Eric Davis is backing the San Francisco 49ers to shut down Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys on their way to a sixth championship. The storied rivals meet in Santa Clara on Sunday for the ninth time in the playoffs. Dallas leads the series 5-3 with the winner going on to win the Super Bowl five times. Davis played in all three NFC Championships as the rivalry peaked across three straight NFC Championships 1992 and 1994. Dallas won the first two on their way to back-to-back Super Bowls, but Davis was instrumental in the final instalment. He scored a pick-six and forced a Michael Irvin fumble in the first quarter as the Niners sealed a 38-28 victory before beating the San Diego Chargers in Super Bowl XXIX. The No 2 seed Niners and No 5 seed Cowboys last met in the wild card round last year, with the 49ers winning 23-17 at AT&T Stadium. Davis picked San Francisco that time – and he sees no reason to change his pick. Eric Davis is backing the San Francisco 49ers to go...

    SANTA CLARA — For Brock Purdy’s next heroic feat, he must overcome a sore body and win at the NFL’s ultimate amphitheater in Seattle, a historically cruel place for 49ers quarterbacks. “This is probably the most hostile you could probably play in, (Seattle) or Arrowhead (in Kansas City),” Purdy said Tuesday. “I’m excited for it. Just talking to (teammates) and hearing them out, in terms of communication and operation, we’ll be ready to go.” Will he, though? Purdy, because of oblique and rib injuries in winning his first start Sunday, will be a game-time decision Thursday night when the 49ers play at the Seahawks’ Lumen Field, coach Kyle Shanahan said before Tuesday’s practice. “I haven’t been out to practice or tried to throw the football, yet.,” Purdy said. “So it’s how I feel walking around or doing movements in the pool. I can still jog and run but I haven’t tried playing football yet. … It wasn’t excruciating pain. I was just sore after the game.” Purdy was slated to be limited in the night-time practice at Levi’s Stadium. “We’ll find...
    While the sports world was tuned in to other events, the San Francisco 49ers and Carolina Panthers shook things up with Christian McCaffrey.  The Los Angeles Lakers had just tied the rival Clippers going into the half when suddenly Christian McCaffrey began trending on Twitter. That’s because, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, McCaffrey, a graduate of Stanford, is returning to the Bay Area after the Carolina Panthers traded him to the San Francisco 49ers for a bevy of draft picks.

    A San Francisco lawmaker has been slammed for flushing money down the drain after being awarded $1.7 million for a single public toilet in a charming town square in the crime ridden, Dem-led city. Assemblyman Matt Haney has been planning for nearly a year to build a single communal toilet in the Noe Valley Town Square in a 150 square foot space after city officials said there was not enough funding to build a restroom when the square was constructed in 2016.  But on Wednesday, Haney temporarily suspendeded plans to build the single commode after the eye-watering price-tag was met with outrage when it was revealed by the San Francisco Chronicle. Haney secured the funding from the Recreation and Parks Department, not questioning the price tag which is nearly as high as what a single-family home in the area costs.  'They told me $1.7 million, and I got $1.7 million,' he told the San Francisco Chronicle  at the time.  'I didn't have the option of bringing home less of the bacon when it comes to building a toilet.

    Which quarterback stands between the 49ers and their elusive sixth Lombardi Trophy? Which opposing quarterback, that is. Trey Lance, the 49ers’ successor to Jimmy Garoppolo, will start new rivalries with counterparts this coming season. He will be the underdog or the up-and-comer, almost every week. Once he reaches the playoffs next January or in future years, that is where an arch-nemesis will emerge, a la “Brady vs. Manning.” Or, in 49ers’ parlance, “Young vs. Aikman” and “Montana vs. Simms.” PHOTO BY ANNA MARIE REMEDIOS 49er quarterback Steve Young congratulates a stunned Dallas quarterback Troy Aikman after the Niners 38-28 romp over Dallas in the NFC title game.  This season’s schedule offers a mix of proven superstars, middle-of-the-pack QBs and second-chance journeymen.

    Ousted San Francisco district attorney Chesa Boudin, who was recalled from his post in June, said Thursday that he will not campaign for his old seat in the November election. The progressive criminal justice reformer tweeted that nonstop campaigning has taken a toll on his family, which includes his son born last September and his elderly father, a former Weather Underground radical who was released from prison after serving more than four decades for his role in a fatal robbery. “My son is on the verge of taking his first step and speaking his first word,” Boudin said. “My wife’s research on multiple sclerosis at (University of California, San Francisco) deserves the same support she has offered my work.” Boudin said that sitting out the November election does not preclude him for running for district attorney in 2023 for a full four-year term. Boudin, 41, was recalled from office in June barely three years after he won office in November 2019 — amid frustration and anxiety over the pandemic and viral footage of Asian seniors being assaulted in San Francisco....
    By JIMMY GOLEN BOSTON (AP) — Bill Russell, the NBA great who anchored a Boston Celtics dynasty that won 11 championships in 13 years — the last two as the first Black head coach in any major U.S. sport — and marched for civil rights with Martin Luther King Jr., died Sunday. He was 88. His family posted the news on social media, saying Russell died with his wife, Jeannine, by his side. The statement did not give the cause of death. “Bill’s wife, Jeannine, and his many friends and family thank you for keeping Bill in your prayers. Perhaps you’ll relive one or two of the golden moments he gave us, or recall his trademark laugh as he delighted in explaining the real story behind how those moments unfolded,” the family statement said. “And we hope each of us can find a new way to act or speak up with Bill’s uncompromising, dignified and always constructive commitment to principle. That would be one last, and lasting, win for our beloved #6.” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Pete Alonso hit an early three-run homer moments after Francisco Lindor’s tying, two-run double, and the New York Mets kept slugging all game long to rout the stumbling San Francisco Giants 13-3 on Monday night. Jeff McNeil added a two-run homer in the eighth inning and Mark Canha followed with a solo drive in his return to the Bay Area after playing for the Oakland Athletics. That was the second time the Mets connected for back-to-back homers this year, also on April 15 against Arizona. Brandon Crawford put the Giants on the board first with a two-run homer in the second off lefty David Peterson (2-0), pitching in Max Scherzer’s place with the ace right-hander sidelined by an oblique strain. J.D. Davis broke out of a slump with four hits for the NL East-leading Mets, who are in a grueling stretch with 16 games in as many days. They won for the fifth time in six games, and were certainly thrilled with sunny skies and warm San Francisco temperatures — at least until the late innings...
    San Francisco Police said they will not march in this year’s Pride Parade in protest over organizers’ new decision not to allow officers to wear their uniform during the annual LGBTQ event. The SFPD Officers Pride Alliance announced their decision Monday. Firefighters and sheriff’s deputies said they would also not march during the June 26 parade down Market Street. The San Francisco Police Department will provide security for the event, according to a press release from the officers pride alliance. The group says they have been in discussions with the San Francisco LGBT Pride Celebration Committee, about incorporating uniformed officers into the event, but could not reach a compromise with the group that oversees the parade. The controversy stems from 2019 when anti-corporate protesters blocked the parade route and were arrested and allegedly assaulted by police. Conversations about the incident became tense in 2020 after the murder of George Floyd, a Black man murdered by a white police officer and the parade organizers decided that to make community members feel safe, that uniformed police would not be allowed to march...

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein rejected reports of colleagues questioning her mental ability, insisting she remains qualified to serve. The 88-year-old rejected allegations from fellow lawmakers that her memory is "rapidly deteriorating," with the California Democrat touting her attendance record as evidence she's up to the task. “I meet regularly with leaders,” Feinstein said in a call with editorial board leaders of the San Francisco Chronicle, which published the original report of her colleagues' accusations. “I’m not isolated. I see people. My attendance is good. I put in the hours. We represent a huge state.

    San Francisco 49ers cornerback Josh Norman. (Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports) The San Francisco 49ers had their season end in the NFC Championship game. Which players won’t be back for another go in 2022? The 49ers were living the dream with upset victories in the first two rounds of the playoffs. They even had an NFC Championship lead over the Rams to give them hopes of making it to the Super Bowl. It turned out it was not to be. Los Angeles scored 13 unanswered points to erase the deficit and end San Francisco’s season. On the bright side, the 49ers should look to the future with confidence thanks to key pieces on offense and defense.

    Matching the wit and insightful social commentary of George Bernard Shaw’s “Pygmalion” with the brilliant songs and lyrics of Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe, the 1956 show “My Fair Lady” was rightfully crowned one of the best musicals of all time. The show won six Tony Awards, including best musical, and remains one of Broadway’s longest-running shows, with 2,717 performances. But even a classic needs a new coat of paint every now and then. Enter Bartlett Sher and the Lincoln Center Theater, whose 2018 revival was a Broadway smash, garnering 10 Tony Award nominations and winning five Outer Critics Circle Awards. The show updates the story — about the relationship between a poor flower seller and a pompous linguistics professor — a tad to approach contemporary sensibilities. But of course those glorious tunes — “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “Loverly,” “Get Me to the Church on Time,” “On the Street Where You Live” — are still there. The production is on a North American tour which lands at San Francisco’s Orpheum Theatre next week. The tour...

    Would RHOBHs Garcelle Beauvais Return for Season 12? She Says... Stock futures are flat heading into first full week of trading in October It took until the final afternoon of baseball’s regular season to resolve one of the most thrilling pennant races of the wild-card era.  The San Francisco Giants slammed the door shut on the Los Angeles Dodgers’ hopes of winning the NL West on Sunday with a 11-4 rout of the San Diego Padres.  Logan Webb homered, reached base three times and threw seven strong innings as the Giants won for the franchise-record 107th time. The Giants had already opened up a 7-1 lead in San Francisco by the time the Dodgers began pulling away from the Brewers 400 miles to the south. Had the Giants lost and the Dodgers won on Sunday, they both would have posted matching 106-56 records and would have met for a Game 163 in San Francisco on Monday night with the division title at stake.

    Mandatory Credit: Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports As the San Francisco 49ers line up to rebound from a injury-riddled 2020 campaign, these three players won’t make it to Week 1 this year. After making it to the Super Bowl, the San Francisco 49ers had an injury-riddled 2020 season on the way to a 6-10 record. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo missed time again, as the 49ers lost the most man games to injury of all 32 NFL teams. It was an issue of quantity of injuries, as well as the quality of players who were lost (Nick Bosa, Raheem Mostert, Richard Sherman). The NFC West might be the toughest division in the NFL this year. But the 49ers are right there in the mix, provided they are mostly healthy and in particular Garoppolo can be healthy and play well. If he can’t or doesn’t, rookie Trey Lance is waiting in the wings as Kyle Shanahan’s hand-picked quarterback of the future. As the 49ers hone in who they’ll head into the 2021 season with, these three players won’t make it to Week 1.3...

    BOSTON — Basketball Hall of Famer K.C. Jones, whose history of championships began with the University of San Francisco teams of the mid-1950s, has died. He was 88. Jones’ family confirmed Friday that he died at an assisted living facility in Connecticut, where he had been receiving care for Alzheimer’s disease for the past several years. Jones joined with Bill Russell to lead San Francisco to back-to-back NCAA championships in 1955-56. The two also played on the U.S. team that won the Olympic gold medal at the 1956 Games in Melbourne. He then won eight NBA championships as a Celtics player in the 1960s and two more as the coach of the Boston teams that took the title in 1984 and ‘86.

He retired in 1967 and began coaching, first in college at Brandeis and Harvard before joining the Los Angeles Lakers as an assistant, in 1971-72, where he earned another championship ring.

    SAN FRANCISCO —  San Francisco public schools won’t reopen for in-person learning in January because of a breakdown in negotiations between the school district and teachers unions over coronavirus safety, the San Francisco Unified School District said. “The district cannot meet all of the new requirements SFUSD’s labor unions have proposed, and there is not sufficient time to complete bargaining in order to reopen any school sites on Jan. 25,” the district said in an online statement. The biggest barrier, the district said, is a demand by labor groups that no staff or students return for in-person learning until the state puts San Francisco in the orange tier, reserved for places with moderate transmission of the coronavirus. The state’s color-coded reopening system ties reductions in new coronavirus cases and the rate of positive coronavirus tests to eased restrictions. San Francisco is now in the purple tier, indicating widespread transmission. Elementary school students and pupils with disabilities had been expected to return to classrooms in late January. Mayor London Breed called the announcement “infuriating.” “I can’t imagine how hard this...

That means employees will be compensated as if they live in places like San Francisco, where Reddit is headquartered, even if they move to a much cheaper locale. "To support employees to live where they want to and do their best work, we are eliminating geographic compensation zones in the US," the company said in a blog post. "We believe this is the right balance of flexibility and support for employees, recognizing the varied tradeoffs people consider when deciding where to live." The social media company will also allow employees to choose between working in person, remotely or a combination of both. Reddit said the new policy will exclude workers who have roles that need to be performed in person. "We are reimagining the future of our...
