After the Golden Gate Bridge collapsed, the main route in or out of the city was over the Bay Bridge. Hector broke into an abandoned car on the bridge which, unfortunately, caused the alarm system to annunciate and that was enough to attract the walkers. Oakland was about to be inundated by a ravenous throng looking for pigskin. Hector apologized.
The above story is fictitious. Hector didn't apologize. Hector didn't make it off the bridge before he was tossed over the side. Hector was wearing his 49ers jersey.
