Super Bowl XLVII

1. A sibling rivalry makes for entertaining television
2. All entertainers from here on out performing "The Star Spangled Banner" should be provided an official lyrics sheet
3. Don't put on a half-time show that your alloted utilities cannot cover
4. Octogenarians really love Taco Bell
All in all though a fun game to watch.

Especially, that last endzone set.
Niners should have won, their play-calling on 2-4 down there on that last drive was baffling.
It was a strange game that was inconsistently entertaining. Ravens go up big, blackout, 9ers comes back. I was pretty over it by the black out, honestly.
I'm happy Bert gets his MVP though.

And yeah, I was talking about that last endzone set, I'm not sure why I worded that so terribly. They were burning the Ravens on off-tackle runs up and down the field and then tried to force the ball in to Crabtree three times? Boggles my mind. Especially that one to the near corner of the endzone to Crabtree, looked to me like he had the endzone if he ran.

It is really interesting that Bryant McKinnie became the key to a team winning the Super Bowl. He and Oher handled the Bronco & 49er pass rushes extraordinarily well and gave the Ravens a way to win.
It really was the complete reshuffling of their line. Osemele is the one who really impressed me. I've heard guys who aren't known for overblown statements say that he could be the best guard in football as soon as next year.
