As part of the City's ongoing pro-Warriors Arena campaign, Mayor Ed Lee presented star three-point shooter Stephen Curry with a key to the city earlier today. A sort of consolation prize for not making it past the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Semifinals, but still turning out a winning season that went "beyond expectations."
Mayor Lee donned his finest, loudest, bluest blazer for the occasion and proclaimed his golden state of tie with neckwear so loud, we suspect it was hand-chosen by Willie Brown himself. Curry, meanwhile, did his part to draw San Francisco's attention to the East Bay NBA team by spending all year breaking Ray Allen's record for most three-pointers made in a regular season. He finished with 272 before the Warriors started their too-short playoff run.
Still, the dome room at City Hall looked pretty good decked out in blue and yellow:

Earlier in the press event, Stephen was outshined by the Mayor's announcement that Super Bowl L in 2016 will be played in Santa Clara, with an accompanying sideshow along the Embarcadero.
