The Baltimore Ravens, of course, holding off a jaw-dropping comeback by the 49ers in an extremely thrilling game. The title of this post refers to who won the Superbowl contest sponsored by this blog by predicting the outcome. The final score was Ravens 34; 49ers 31. So the Ravens won by 3. Therefore our virtual Lombardi trophy goes to JOHN, who guessed Ravens 24-21. A margin of 3 points.
Now I myself was unable to see the game, being on the road for a speaking engagement. It seems like I am ALWAYS on the road for a speaking engagement during on Superbowl Sunday, flying back late at night and checking the TV sets in the airports to see how the game is going. This is probably the third time this happened to me in the last four years. So I missed what sounds like a really good game.
So if you want to discuss the game–or the commercials, or the blackout, or the national anthem, or the halftime show (notice how all of these other things have become part of the ritual Superbowl reflections)–comment here.
