So. Power outage, how 'bout that.

I'm glad, the Harbaugh that doesn't seem like a total jerk is the one who won. It was a more entertaining game than it looked like it would be early. I thought the no-call on the 49ers' last fourth down was a good one.

By handing the 49ers their first Super Bowl loss and winning their second title, the Ravens have become the only team with multiple Super Bowl wins without a Super Bowl defeat.

I predicted the coin toss correctly, and that was all. Great game though - I enjoyed it more than the last few years.

It's funny because I got almost all the early "prop bets" correctly. I got how long Alicia Keys would sing the national anthem, both the coin toss winner and that it would be heads. I was only a late field goal away from getting the total halftime score correct (my 24 got ruined by that late SF drive). Of course we decided not to play for money, so all my luck went for nought.

The game was indeed great, minus the "this blackout is for you, Roger Goodell, for screwing up the Saints season" delay. I was worried, in that the Thursday night game they had last season was such a terribly boring game (imo), but both teams played well.

Congrats to you Ray Lewis, now get thee to the set of Sunday NFL Countdown.

I was at the Hooter's @ The Inner Harbor and it was SO CRAZY! We were running in the streets giving high fives to drivers, everyone was honking their horns to that "OHHHHH, OH-OH-OH-OH-OH" song. MY voice is GONE and that 3rd quarter SUCKED. We all thought it was going down the toilet.

Damnit Niners, they need to take more notes on how the Giants do their fan torture. Being behind all game long is great, but we need to actually get ahead in the final minutes.

That said, the better team clearly won. Had we ended up winning, I think all of us Niners fans would have acknowledged an asterisk by the victory due to the over half an hour of blackout time and how that drastically shifted the momentum.

That 108 yard punt return was hilarious.

That third quarter might've been the wildest 15 minutes in Super Bowl history even WITHOUT the blackout.

Hard to believe that the Baltimore Ravens are the champions but hey, they got it done. Good for them.

This was a nice bounce back year for me, compared to last year where I merely broke even on the Giants/Pats. I popped the loudest for Kaepernick's pick, which won two bets for me simultaneously.

As for the game, it started to get really good in the second half. This wasn't the first time the Niners fell asleep for the first half and I just knew this would be another case of that.

The holding non-call at the end has ensured a VERY awkward Thanksgiving at the Harbaugh house.

The lights going out in the Superdome is, bar none, the most bizarre visual I've ever witnessed during a major sporting event. I also can't be the only one secretly hoping that somewhere in the distance, The Shield was triple powerbombing Phil Simms through the announce table.

UGGGGGH. Simms was insufferable tonight. Between the oral servie he provided to CK, the (very unclassy) dress-down of Ray Lewis-as-it-pertains-to-the-murder-investigation, to the complete fumbling of the "should they take the safety" debate... Simms is a fucking joke and an awful announcer almost on par with Berman.

I'm happy for The Ravens and their fans. The 9ers will be back and much better in the spotlight.

The MVP should be the refs for allowing the Ravens to play dirty through the first half which lead to the brawl. No, surprise since the crew was called out by other refs last week. The Niners 3rd quarter heroics saved this from being one of the worst Super Bowls ever.

While I am displeased that Ray Lewis and Byant McKinnie now have Super Bowl rings, it pleases my heart that Matt Birk is retiring with a ring.

-EDIT- Birk was just on KFAN and he hadn't gone to sleep yet. He actually had his "exit" physical at 7am this morning. He also said he hasn't made a decision yet on retiring, but will probably figure it out in 2-3 weeks.

I enjoyed just about all of it. I told The Lovely Mrs. Tr4acker at halftime that someone should ask the Falcons how safe a SF deficit is. 'Course I also was screaming "TAKE THE SAFETY" in that last minute. Because the Patriots did the same thing a while back, and it worked. But having the punter scramble to kill time was smart.

The AFC is a more interesting conference today, and that's good for football.

William Regal refused to have the Super Bowl continue until he received the respect that he deserved.

The only thing that would have made the ending to this more bizarre would have been for Baltimore to fluff the free-kick enough to allow the Niners to try a fair-catch kick to tie it at the buzzer.

As to the last Niners play, we had the game on at the group home I work at, so I didn't really get to sit down and watch the game until the blackout, so at the time, I thought that it was close, and probably should have been holding, but figured that the referees were using the "this play decides the Super Bowl, so unless it is straight-up homicide, we are going to let them decide it on the field" strategy. Watching the highlights leads me to believe that they were just the wrong crew to work the game. And, come to think of it, how did Baltimore manage to NOT have a player ejected after the two-handed shove on an official in the first half?

He should have been tossed. My team won and I still think they got away with alot more than they should have. That spot and 1st down that SF had to challenge was WAY off. The whole bar thought he was short and my table was shocked they gave them the spot. It seemed more often than not that we got the calls our way and that usually never happens for the Ravens.

I love the result, obviously, but I think this was one of the worst Super Bowls in terms of officiating. Lots of bad and missed calls on both teams.

I think it's been pretty clear for a while now that the NFL was going to do everything in their power to pull out a Raven's win so they can plaster the Ray Lewis sob story all over the media.

I heard that chant from the crowd throughout the game.

First time I've heard Ravens fans doing that. Curious on how long they've been doing that chant, and why?

I knew it was from pre-game hype music we have used for a couple years but I had to research on which song it was actually. It is The White Stripes "Seven Nation Army."




I think it caught on because of the Orioles and we love to shout "O!" We even shout it during the National Anthem "O!! say does that star-spangled banner yet wave..."

Deadspin did a long form article about how that song caught on as a sports song. The Ravens part wasn't the most exciting part...


    This past summer, the Ravens polled fans about what song should rally the crowd into the fourth quarter at home games. "Seven Nation Army" beat out "Enter Sandman" and Joe Satriani's "Crowd Chant," among others, in the final balloting, and it is now a ritual.
