In a game that looked like a total snoozer before the lights went out, Super Bowl XLVII turned into a wild one that ended with a self-inflicted safety and a punt. You certainly can’t say it was uneventful evening.
In the end, the early lead the Baltimore Ravens worked for proved to be enough. But damn, Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers made it interesting.
How about that no-call on the final San Fran chance in the end zone? Wild. Imagine if you were a Niners fan in that situation. Yikes.
There are plenty of Philadelphia tie-ins on the Super Bowl Champion Ravens. MVP Joe Flacco is the obvious local guy to get a ring. But Juan Castillo, former Eagles legendary running back Wilbert Montgomery, and former safety Sean Considine all worked to get Baltimore the trophy.
And of course John Harbaugh helped himself become a head coach by working under Ray Rhodes and Andy Reid with the Eagles.
The NFL Draft is on Thursday, April 25th.
But in related news: pitchers and catchers on February 12th.
How about Juan Castillo. Gets fired in October, gets a ring in February. Ring for Sean Considine, too. And Wilbert Montgomery.
