Jan 28, 2023

San Francisco 49ers fans may have gone too far with this one.

Fans of the team from the Bay Area placed a Niners T-shirt on the Rocky Balboa statue in Philadelphia ahead of San Francisco's NFC championship game against the Eagles.

The nine-foot statue was commissioned by Sylvester Stallone, who played the Philly-based Balboa in nine movies.

For "Rocky III," it was placed at the top of what are now known as the "Rocky Steps" at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in homage to the famous scene from the first film in 1976. It now stands on the bottom right of the steps.
