Chaz is totally on target. This was what the Niners dished out to the Cincy boys back in XVI, a goal-line stand.

It was terrible play-calling there at the last. I would've run, run, run, and run some more. Ah well, next year again...

I had six people here in my little studio and we none of us drank. It was the soberest and most stunned bunch of Niners fans I've ever seen.

Wouldn't have missed this for much you could name.

Did any one notice Williams #29 of the Ravens aggressively push that ref in the first half? Both teams got called for personal foul in the scuffle so the penalties cancelled each other. But I thought pushing a ref would have been a separate personal foul of its own, or a mandatory fine or something. It doesn't seem right to me that nothing was made of it.

Contact with a ref is usually grounds for ejection if deliberate

go Ravens. I thought it was an exciting super bowl, with the 69ers almost pulling out the win.

I'm disillusioned. Think sometimes these games are predetermined as to win or loss.

Yeah, touching a referee is often a separate penalty and a player can be immediately ejected for it.

Used to watch a lot of sports on the tube, but gave up TV 5 years ago. Can't say I miss it. Filled the time watching others do what they what to do with what I've always wanted to do.

So now it's don't watch, lynnie, learn it, do it, live it.

But if I do watch it's near the end. In any sport that's when it happens.

The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco - Mark Twain

And remember he worked on the Territorial Enterprise newspaper in Virginia City, during the winter.

And I am proud to say that this great writer is in my family tree (can't get him out. Called the fire department but he still won't come down).

Before hitting the Oregon Trail in 1843, the Sawyers lived in St Joseph, Missouri. Samuel Langhorne Clemens grew up in Hannibal, Missouri. When he wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (an autobiography for the most part), he borrowed his cousins' name (the St Joe Sawyers) for the character's surname.

What does this have to do with the Super Bowl? Nada.

So, having not seen the game, did the best team win? Or is that a subjective question?

PS I love soft shell crabs. Hard to find here in Dublin. Yo! Sushi does a soft shell crab tempura.

Also, growing up in the Diablo Valley, in the sun with cut-offs and sandals, then heading west to SF, one needed a sweater and jeans. I worked in SF and played football (soccer) there too. It can be cold.
