    OH MY!, we have a game again. 17 pts in 4 1/2 minutes. 28 to 23. Come on 49ers, we need another TO.

    Raven hold on for the win. 9ers couldn't hold the Ravens to less than 10 pts in the 2nd half.

    All I care is that the purple team won. What was their name again? :p

    (I know very little about football beyond the fact that the Lions are never in the Super Bowl. :lol:)

    Well, 49ers almost pull out the come from behind win! Congrats to Ravens!

    I think that was the most emotion Joe Flacco has ever shown in his life and even that was still like someone just gave him a scoop of his favorite ice cream.

    I had no pony (or bird :p ) in this race, but it was an eventful game that got exciting after the power outage.

    My BIL, the lucky dog, went to the game (one of his close friends had CBS VIP tickets on the 50 yard line -- he called my sister this afternoon "just" to tell her he was in a van with a police escort to the game - :lol: and a bit of :rolleyes: ). He posted 6-7 times on his FB page during the game with various observations and a couple of :rofl: snarks.

    Congratulations to Baltimore. I could live without the Ray Lewis hoopla, but I much preferred them winning than the team from the most effed up major city in the country :saint:

    I was hoping the Ravens would win, they seemed to have the perfect underdog story this year - up against the 'favorites' and still beat them all. Loved how everyone but Cowher counted them out in the pregame picks. But, I had doubts after the lights came back on. Just happy to see Ray Lewis go away.

    When's preseason start? :shuffle:

    This. I absolutely can't stand the best bone in his phony, murder-covering-up, self-professed prophet body.
    Still, I've been a huge fan of Ray RICE since his Rutgers days, so I'm thrilled for him. :cheer:
    Also happy for Jim Caldwell, who gets a little bit of redemption after the Colts debacle.

    I'm not surprised the Ravens won. The SB always seems to be won by the team who gets hot late in the season, and they followed the exact path my G-men did last year: Fourth seed, handily beats fifth seed at home, then goes on the road and knocks off the number one and two seeds -- in that order. I was leaning toward 49ers but it seemed inevitable that the Ravens would win.

    Yay Ravens!!!! I got scared in the 4th quarter and could barely breathe during that goal line stand. And it seemed like the last minute and a half was about 10 minutes long, lol. Awesome job by the Ravens for hanging on. Congratulations to Joe Flacco on his MVP! And thank you Ray Lewis, for 17 great years!

    Victory parade Tuesday!

    It's comments like this that drive me nuts!

    "It's simple: when God is for you, who can be against you?" Lewis said.

    I don't mind it when winners thank god for their success. But I cringe when they see their win as God's intervention in selecting them as the winner.

    We left the the SB party we were at last night just before the start of the second half. Made the half hour drive home to find that we hadn't missed a thing! We even had time to get the kids into bed before the game started back up again. :lol: Not happy about the outcome, but at least the second half was exciting. And at least we didn't have to see Ma and Pa Harbaugh over and over again (I was expecting many shots of them watching the game, but there didn't seem to be too many).

    I will join the good riddance to Ray Lewis club. I am so disgusted with the efforts to turn Lewis into some kind of role model. :scream: He was on the cover of Sports Illustrated last week, with the headline "Does God Care Who Wins the Superbowl?". How ironic! Of curse he doesn't care, but if he did he'd surely be rooting against Ray Lewis.

    Great Freudian typo there. I'm glad that Ray Lewis and his phony god talk is no longer part of the NFL.

    Don't be too sure, I heard talk of him becoming a football commentator. We could be stuck seeng him every Sunday! :rolleyes: :scream:

    BUT congratulations to the Ravens fans, I hope you really enjoy the victory parade, I remember the excitement last year in NYC, of seeing my faves roll downtown in those floats and all the ticker tape floating everywhere. :)

    Congratulations to the Ravens on their well deserved win. When the playoffs began, I didn't give them a chance. I thought they could even lose to the Colts, but they kept winning. I did not think they had a prayer against the 49rs, but they proved me wrong and I am happy about it. They were the better coached team in the superbowl. If not for the power out, this would have been a route. The extra 30 something minutes helped the 49rs set the reset button and the Ravens lost the momentum. That's dangerous against an explosive team like the 49rs. Fortunately they did not become the Atlanta Falcons. Loved the goal line stand at the end. What an exciting game! I am happy for Joe Flacco (cool guy! - and his baby son looked adorable!) and for ex-Cardinal Anquan Boldin, and for the Ravens fans.

    Ray Lewis's comment about God was not something that I like, but I know he is not the only one that does that. I think players use different things to motivate themselves and in the heat of the moment they say something that comes out the wrong way. I don't overanalyze those statements; they are not that important. He was just expressing his joy.

    Loved the confetti shower at the end.
