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.

    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.)
    HOLEY MOLEY!
    LOOK AT JACOBY JONES GO!
    WOOO HOOOOOO!

  • Lincoln’s widow

    Love you too Sasha 8-*
