Super Bowl XLVII: Open Thread

The losing team also has to bring the winners orange slices at halftime of the regular season opener in September. - Michael Heiman

As the Ravens take on the Niners for all the marbles in New Orleans, follow and remark on the Super Bowl in real time with other fans at Battle Red Blog.

In February of 2012, I felt like your 2011 Houston Texans would have been playing for the Lombardi Trophy if not for Matt Schaub's freak injury. I still feel that way, actually. I harbor no such illusions about the 2012 Houston Texans as I type this in February of 2013.

Thus, let us watch the Ravens and 49ers battlefight for the championship of the National Football League and enjoy our respective evenings. This is your open thread for Super Bowl XLVII. The floor is yours.
