Happy Super Sunday. To provide some added drama, all Super Bowl booth reviews will be decided by John and Jim Harbaugh’s parents.
John Harbaugh’s Ravens are playing Jim Harbaugh’s 49ers. This will be the first Super Bowl for bragging rights over who Mom liked better.
This will likely be the last Super Bowl pitting coaching brother against brother until the one featuring Rex Ryan and Rob Ryan, LOL, LOL.
Personally, with Harbaugh vs. Harbaugh, I’m hunkering down and bracing for over 239 “All in the Family” and “Family Feud” references.
The retiring Ray Lewis has been linked to a banned compound found in deer antlers. When reached for comment, Lewis’ personal trainer, Granny from the Beverly Hillbillies, denied everything.
When asked about deer antler spray at media day Lewis appeared “visibly agitated.” Don’t read too much into that, Lewis has appeared visibly agitated since 1984.
Sunday is a huge day for football fans in Nebraska. Sure, in less than 24 hours, week three of Husker winter conditioning begins.
Beyonce will be performing at halftime of the Super Bowl. This is such a big deal she recorded all the songs last June.
I am sorry, but there is too much Super Bowl media coverage. Eighty percent of our middle schoolers can identify all of Colin Kaepernick’s tattoos.
This is Super Bowl XLVII. Based on Americans’ knowledge of Roman numerals, we know it’s either Super Bowl 47, or 52. Unless it’s Super Bowl 77?
As always, there are weird Super Bowl prop bets. For example, the odds of Colin Kaepernick being sacked by the Ravens: Even. The odds of Kaepernick being sacked by 49er backup QB Alex Smith: 2 to 1.
There are 23 former Southeastern Conference players on the Ravens and 49er rosters. You know what you call a contest in the SEC with 100 million fans watching? “Spring scrimmage.”
And finally: In conjunction with Super Bowl Week, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell delivered his annual state of the league address. The speech got off to a bad start when he fined 300 people in attendance for wearing their socks too low.
