Superbowl

Congrats to the Baltimore Ravens and their fans, and condolences to the fans of the 49ers.

Another exciting Superbowl. Used to be that the big game was a blowout more often than not, but the last few years have seen some exciting contests. For once, it was a great defensive goal line stand that won the game. Something fans of D like me see all too seldom. (Of course, the Niners playcalling on first-and-goal from the five left much to be desired. Too many passes to Crabtree. I would have gone with Gore Up the Gut four times. If they had, I'd be congratulating San Francisco right now, I suspect).

Of course, this year can't compare with last year's thrilling Giants win, but hey, that's the NFL. Glory is fleeting. The G-Men will be back.
