ESPN Profiles Banjo Man

Fans of the San Francisco 49ers instantly recognize him: Banjo Man.

ESPN's Rick Reilly profiled the man known to his family as Stacy Samuels. Learn about his start with the Warriors, his routine, trips to the Super Bowl and the bizarre product that has afforded his family comfort while he's off plucking strings at Niners games.

Whether you're at The Stick or watching 60-inches of liquid crystals lighting up his beard from the comfort of your recliner, this enthusiastic strummer has become a true icon among sports fans in the Bay Area.
