And I thought there were some football fans on this forum. :rolleyes:

Like most American's I prefer the underdog. Oddsmakers (in Vegas) gave the 49ers an early 4 1/2-point handicap; putting the total score at 49 points. Plus... the Ravens beat my Broncos so they have to win.

So I'm calling it... Ravens for the win.

I'm a Chiefs fan so the Super Bowl depresses me:wink: Only my team can produce 6 probowlers and get 2 wins....Future looks decent though haha

It's funny - I really don't favor one over the other at this point.... I'd like to see the kid QB play well. But I guess it would be storybook for Ray to get a RING for his last game! ;)

Just hope it's a battle! :D

I love the game of football, but have a hard time following the NFL. Maybe its the fact that there are no teams even close to where I live? I have been very impressed with the QB from SanFran (not even gonna try to spell it), so I am gonna jump on the bandwagon and root for the 49ers.

My Steelers are long out of it so all I care is that the three players I have left in my fantasy playoff team do well.

I'm a huge Steelers fan too and is painful as it is I have to pull for the Ravens. Don't want the 49ers to tie us in Super Bowl wins.

I don't want to use this place as a Bully Pulpit so I've tried to be (somewhat) low-key with my rhetoric. However, there is no doubt where my feelings lie, I gotta go with the home team!

I know! And that's ok. Made the AFC championship game? Not too shabby.

Jim's team made the big dance. That's not a bad thing!

I always pull for my Michigan guys. I'm very predictable. :)

Know what? I'm honestly happy that the Big Ten has such strong hoops competition! Good game, IU!

IU football will be on the upswing with their recent coaching hire. So will Purdue I think. Minnesota is turning around. Northwestern's tough now. Illinois...well... I really would like to see the Big Ten get stronger everywhere. Wisconsin was a league doormat until Alvarez came in. I love watching them play now. I hope we'll see more great games!

As a fan, sure I want to see UM win. But I love a good game. There should never be an "easy out" in B1G play.

I loved it when Nebraska joined the league, and I'm excited about Rutgers and Maryland coming in. It's going to be a lot of fun, and hopefully we'll see some good games.

It's free on the BBC. Sky Sports are covering it as well. We've got a subscription for that for the 'other football' so I don't know if it's going to be free to air. I'll have to see who's doing better commentary!

BBC2 for those folks in the UK... On now.

Fun game to watch. 49ers probably felt it was a sign when the lights went out since they're used to that:)
Congrats Ravens fans, glad you got the win. I would've lost big on my bet Ray Lewis would be on the turf at least 1 minute:) Kinda bummed he wasn't more dramatic. Nice he got to go out on the highest note.

SO MUCH FOR STATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, it wasn't so much about stats - I had no reason to root for either team, honestly. So here's the super bowl, another year the Lions don't even get into the playoffs, let alone the big game, and I have no team to root for.

But I like football, and I want to be interested in games like this, so I look for a reason to root for someone - anyone!

In this case it was a Michigan alum.

I'm a Michigan alum, so I picked the Niners. But honestly, I didn't really care much about the outcome. Hans seemed to want some trash talk, so I posted the stats. You do have to admit that Jim Harbaugh has done an impressive job taking a 6-10 team to the NFC championship in his first year, and super bowl in the second year. And they came awfully close to a win.

Then again, close only counts in horseshoes. ;)

Well.. I watched most of it. Pretty enjoyable but didn't really dig the half time show. Would possibly enjoy it more if I watched more games leading upto it and understood the rules better.

I wonder if any of you guys would like Rugby League or Rugby Union? A lot of differences but perhaps enough similarities that you'd enjoy it...

Congrats to the winners!

I think pretty much any kind of nuclear explosion would do...in the 50s they had cannons to fire nuclear tipped weapons! I wonder if those are still in the arsenal of scary stuff you hope they never use....
