Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana was forced to cancel an appearance before the Santa Clara City Council last Tuesday after a vehicular accident.

Montana’s injuries weren’t serious, but he did suffer a black eye and hurt leg, according to Matthew Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.

“From what I heard,” said Santa Clara Mayor Jamie Matthews, “he has a black eye and a cut that needed some stitches. He may have also hurt his leg, and they weren’t sure if it was fractured or not.”

Barrows clarifies that Montana’s injuries were sustained when he took a tumble off an ATV last weekend near his ranch in Calistoga.

Montana’s appearance has been rescheduled for July 12.

    Joe was upset about Nate’s DUI and had a little too much to drink before getting on the ATV… upon hearing about Joe’s accident, Nate punched a wall, injuring his hand…

    Joe ran afoul of an ATV. Nate ran afoul of the ATF.

    he could outperform all of the QB’s on the Niners roster right now, as is.
    Id give anything for a time machine to pluck 1984 Joe Montana and put him on the 2011 Niners.

    I wonder if he was wearing his sketcher shape ups that has him in the best shape of his retired life.

    Obviously Skechers Shape-Ups™ work, people; His glutes were unscathed in the accident……how else do you explain THAT??

    He lost control when he got distracted by seeing John Candy.

    Joe was actually trying to flee on his atv from a group of angry citizens who’d been fleeced by him and his ex-con partner in his latest real estate Ponzi scheme at the time of the accident.

    This story is nothing but a lie. Joe Montana cannot be killed by conventional weapons nor injured by conventional means.

    He fell off the stage wasted because we all know he is really Barry Manilow.
