Soup Or Bowl II, The Super Bowl Live BlogPosted: February 3, 2013
Good morning, it is 6:30 am, Super Bowl Sunday. I’m at work. Somewhere there is coverage of the big game on some channel. I’m not watching, yet.
This is where I’ll be blogging and responding to comments about the game, the ads and whatever else comes up. I’ll update through the day and make continuous updates throughout the game.
In response to a comment in my previous post, I am running a contest. I don’t know what the prize is, perhaps it is my deep and heartfelt respect. Here is the proposition. We all know that the opposing coaches in today’s game are brothers. Yes, same parents, raised in the same house, the whole deal. How many times will we be reminded of that fact?
Post your guess of how many brother references we’ll have during the game in the comment section. I am calling this the Harbaugh Number and I am guessing 25 references to them being brothers from the moment the game commentators come on the air until the coaches shake hands after the game. Note that I will not be counting any references during half time because if you think I’m watching Beyonce you’ve got another thing coming.
Welcome to the big day, more to come!
9:05 a.m. – I forgot to post my prediction. San Francisco by 7. Kaepernick presents too many problems for the Ravens defense.
