So the torch is going from Pine and Van Ness down to the Marina? It's like the Gavin Newsom tour of San Francisco! Will the torch go see Beach Blanket Babylon and shoot some pool at the Tosca next?

And yes, we've gotten it confirmed, the press corps in fact being ferried after the torch in one of those Bay City Quacker buses shaped like a duck. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

We'll update this post with the hilariousest pieces of news we get from the Olympics coverage, but big ups to the Chron, they deserve a Pulitzer just for the headline "Protestors chase after elusive torch." (alas, it's now gone, or we'd link to it.)

After the jump: Board of Supes pres Aaron Peskin's statement slamming Gavin Newsom for running away from problems instead of confronting them head-on!
