Official Super Bowl XLVII Previewon January 28th, 2013 at 10:46 pm
The time has finally arrived! Yes, the single day that all America has devoted to appreciating football is upon us and we must make a choice. We have before us two despicable football stars, and we must select who we’ll root for this Sunday. One player named Randy Moss dared to feign mooning my beloved Packers’ fans during a playoff game eight years ago. The other one is Ray Lewis, the mighty middle linebacker who we all just recalled had helped his friends to cover up a murder over a decade ago. And we have to pick one of these guys’ teams to root for in the Super Bowl.
It is unfortunate that such a wonderful season has to come down to picking who of the lesser two evils to root for, but that is the way of football I suppose. Someone has to win this game, so we might as well try to make the most of it. There are many aspects to consider in picking who I’ll root for and I’ll go ahead and share those with you here.
Brotherly Love – Jim Harbaugh and John Harbaugh are the head coaches of these two teams, though I can’t say which is which. Apparently one was a quarterback at some point? They look the same, so, I don’t really know what merits to give one another. Clearly the 49ers Harbaugh is crazy given this evidence:
What is better than watching a grown man throw a temper tantrum? I hope to see one Sunday. I hope there’s a horribly blown call that decides this game so that one brother has to recall it for the rest of his life. With all the hoopla around the referees at the beginning of the year, I would find such a finale, all integrity of the game destroyed, to be quite enjoyable. Based on the potential insanity of the 49ers’ Harbaugh, I hope the blown call benefits Baltimore. Point Ravens.
Previous experiences with the Packers – Well, I had to witness my precious Packers get overpowered and dismantled by the 49ers twice this year. The Packers opened up their season getting beat by Alex Smith and the 49ers, and then finished up the year by losing to Colin Kaepernick and the “new look” 49ers. It hurt. I hope that the Ravens avenge me….AVENGE ME!!!
What passion! Ray Lewis ain’t got nothing on that guy!
Or perhaps we can look back to my predictions at the beginning of the year – I boldly surmised that my Packers would be involved in the Super Bowl. Yes, you can call me biased, and say perhaps my favoritism showed a little in this selection, but as long as the Packers are as good a bet as any to win the Super Bowl I’m gonna pick them…The 49ers? Well, I actually boldly also predicted that the Rams would win the NFC West division, so yeah…But I did also predict that the Ravens would overcome the Patriots and Broncos to reach the Super Bowl, and although I had them losing in this game, it would make my pre-season predictions feel slightly better if they win.
So yeah, I’m definitely going for the Baltimore Ravens here. I simply can’t stand to see the guys who beat my team go on to find happiness. It’s just not fair! I want to see the 49ers’ Harbaugh crying on the ground, beating his angry fists to the turf. I want to see Randy Moss finish his career without a ring. I don’t want to see the team that I didn’t even pick to make the playoffs end up lifting the Lombardi Trophy. Joe Flacco throws a bomb, this time 80 yards, for a touchdown to Jacoby Jones at the end of this game, and the Ravens win 30-27.
