Joe-Montana---With-Superbowl-Rings---Photofile-Photograph-C10045172.jpeg.jpg If you see a guy who looks like Joe Montana on BART, well, it just might be more than a doppelganger.

The Chronicle is reporting that the beloved former 49er has moved back to SF, to a rented 2 bedroom on the 41st floor of Millennium Tower, which our pals at Curbed took a peek into last year. It is fancy!

In a briefish interview, the Chron asks “maybe the greatest quarterback of all time” a question after our own hearts: “Will you be taking public transit?”

Montana’s answer? “I see myself on BART,” he says, “there is nothing worse for me than sitting in traffic.”

Muni, however, did not come up. Maybe once he settles in, gets his (still free) Clipper card…yeah, probably not. But you never know!
