The NFL will crown a new champion as the Ravens face the 49ers.

The Brother Bowl–
The first Super Bowl featuring brothers as head coaches offered a sentimental moment even before Sunday’s kickoff.

Jim Harbaugh, the 49ers’ coach, met briefly on the field during pregame warmups with his brother John, the Ravens’ coach. Jim offered a handshake as they finished their chat. That wasn’t enough for John, who shook his younger brother’s hand and promptly pulled him in for a hug.

UPDATE: Despite a courageous comeback by the 49ers, the Ravens won 34-31.

    I would say, “May the better team win.” But, of course, it will.

  • SeniorD

    The ONLY game that has ANY meaning is played in December by players with more honor and heart than the over paid, professional egoists.

    GO NAVY! Beat ARMY!

    Bsides, there’s better programming on Public TV.

  • TeachX3

    We are not football fans (HOCKEY BABY!), but the Super Bowl is a tradition for us… I look forward to the junk food and the game every year! So, let’s GO Ravens! 😀

    The Super Bowl. . .that’s today???

    Seriously though, a couple of questions. . .will the commercials be any good and will Beyonce lip sync?

  • bg


    not watching it,

    but wish best of luck to both teams,

    and good times for all those attendance..



  • Kate

    My Packers aren’t in it so it is just a good football game. Those are always fun to watch.

    Go ARMY!!

  • Skip

    My opinion…for the NFL or CBS to have the kids from the Sandy Hook school chorus sing before the start of the game was pathetic. Seems as if both the NFL and of course CBS are on the side of gun control.

  • Kate

    Strange how Mr. Chicago Obama doesn’t seem to want to talk about the death rate in his hometown and all the insane gun laws they have there. Where are the kids from Chicago? Hypocrites.

  • #10 Kate… BINGO, well said!

  • Lincoln’s widow

    Oh boo hoo hoo skip. Its not always about you effing cons and your gun perversion. Key-Rist almighty leave the partisan bullshyte alone to two consecutive minutes, woodya?

    Go Niners! 🙂

  • Oooh, THAT was beautiful! Lovin’ this game 😀

  • Sasja

    The liberal shrew is back to complain. She could find another blog to haunt but then we wouldn’t be regaled with her clever witicisms and all around good humour. She must really be fun to live with.

  • rainmom

    me, too, teach!
    just gotta get through half-time, hahaha.

  • Jeannie

    Lincoln’s widow, the ONLY reason you are here is because cons are not extinct. That is the ONLY reason libs troll. YOu are waiting for the day (not gonna happen) when cons are legislated, silenced and bullied out of existence. YOur entitled, self-serving, narcissistic, ignorant sub I.Q. presence is nothing but proof of the insecure and desperate fear of your party when faced with ANY challenge.

    Get over yourself. Your feces stink as well and your genes are NOT elite enough to make you exceptional examples of the human species.

  • Jeannie

    Lincoln’s widow was widely reported to be both crazy and a shrew, not desired by her husband or particularly well spoken of by her peers.

    Good choice of moniker.

  • Well, what did you think of the half time show rainmom?

  • rainmom

    well, we made club sandwiches, and they were great, hahahah.
    what’d you have?
    (she’s a beautiful young woman, and truthfully, i’m still stinging from her remarks the
    day after the election, “take that, mitches!” chalking it up to youth and hubris.)

  • Lincoln’s widow

    Love you too Sasha 8-*

  • rainmom

    hubby left the room, hahahhahahah.

  • MAN that was so awesome, JONES was GONE! 😀

    We had chunk cheese, pizza puffs, boneless chicken in sauce, crackers & cheese dip and potato skins LOL yum and because I’m so full, ugh!

    She sang well and how she continuously dances around like that and can still stand, is beyond me LOL but yea, I’m not much of a fan.

    Power outage! wow… what a weird game.

  • rainmom

    did beyonce blow a fuse?

  • RealMc

    Fox News reporting that SF fans broke in to a transformer room and shorted out light system………

    tinfoil hat full on mode ;o)

    pitiful superbowl game and even the commercials suck!!

  • This is seriously gonna put a damper on momentum…

  • rainmom

    oooooh, yuuuuuum! that sounds great, especially the potato skins!
    made sf banana bread this morning (hubby is diabetic), and then some king ranch
    chicken, so that was gooey and good.

    hmmm, wonder if beyonce blew a fuse? hahahahaha.
    i’m with you…amazing how she can move like that, and i appreciate the talent, but not
    a fan…much too old.

  • B.O. don’t know diddley squat

    Fact: I have sang at as many inaugurations “live” as Beyonce Knows-less

  • bigkahuna

    Shes not dancing she just shakes her fat hips while screaching idiotic lyrics… It was not good at all.

  • Patty

    Go RAVENS!!!

  • rainmom

    did anyone think this sort of game would happen? just blows me away.

  • Skip

    #12 Lincoln’s Widow,

    Your ‘niners’ are looking good aren’t they 🙂

    It is unfortunate you cannot stand the truth.

  • JenBee

    Ravens look great tonight! Weird power outage, doesn’t make NO look good at all…

  • bigkahuna

    Breaking News… Power outage was caused by some guy at BW3’s in San Fran.

  • OK, let’s GO Ravens!!

  • GotFreedom

    Can you say “hackers”. . .”Anonymous” anyone??? Sure is suspicious!

  • B.O. don’t know diddley squat

    Wow..Super Bowl halftimes have gotten really long..
    Good nap though

  • Ghost

    team San Francisco in the Super Bowl about to get blown out.
    if I am any one of 10,000 computer geniuses in Silicon Valley, AND, a 49ers fanatic I might think about hacking into the SuperDome’s power system- perhaps remove Ravens’ momentum, allow my team to regroup, alter the course of the game?! even if that fails I still get a kick out of it.

    why not?
    remember when Cal Tech students (who always compete with MIT for best prank) tapped into the scoreboard at the Rose Bowl during a Super Bowl game?

    “it is unfortunate you cannot stand the truth.”

    Of course they are losing, you doofuss. Anyone with a brain can see that.

    So what’s your vacuous point again?

  • I. don’t. believe. this.


  • bigkahuna

    Would love to see the Ravens get beat by 3 since they went for the fake on the field goal.

    Hate both teams but San Fran Less

  • Lincoln’s widow

    It. Ain’t. Over. ‘Til. Its. Over. 🙂

  • #51 bigkahuna… looks like you might just get to see that. I dislike both teams too but Baltimore less.

  • Lincoln’s widow

    Niners back in it! They love coming from behind, wink wink nudge nudge 😉

  • cavt

    Think the Super Dome uses Solyndra panels for their electricity.

    have never seen anything like it. WOW.

  • Patty

    Odd, competitive, whatever. Coach didn’t want to come out and speak about his brother’s victory.
    Or didn’t want to steal the limelight from his brother.
