Jerry Rice Drove a Lyft and No One Had Any Clue Who He Is
What happens when a Super Bowl legend returns to team’s city on the eve of the Super Bowl? Well, as it turns out, nothing.
San Francisco 49ers great Jerry Rice, three-time Super Bowl champion and NFL Hall of Famer, went undercover as a Lyft driver in San Francisco as Levi’s Stadium, home of the 49ers, prepares to host the 50th edition of the big game.
Rice is a hero in the Bay Area, but he was about as anonymous as, well, a Lyft driver cruising through the streets trying to make a buck. Rice, 53, was nice as could be as he talked (and danced — he was a Dancing With the Stars runner-up, after all) with his passengers, but no one caught on to who he was, although we’ll give the guy who said he looked familiar a little credit. A little.
At least everyone was excited when he revealed his true identity, but, still, we bet Joe Montana would never have this problem.
