What was with that squib kick-off after the final field goal? I was ready to fire the whole damned staff. :x

Yeah they almost blew it with that. Definitely some plays to remember and some to never repeat.

Although, sorry Freak, I'm going to be pulling for 49ers next week so kinda hope the falcons do make some costly mistakes.

Sorry

That game would have been a lot different if John Abraham hadn't been injured in the last, meaningless game of the regular season where Coach Smith played his starters for the whole game.

Super Bowl Fans Cry 'Fowl' Over Chicken Wing Shortage
Ned Smith, BusinessNewsDaily Senior WriterDate: 23 January 2013 Time: 10:21 AM ET

http://www.livescience.com/26507-chicke ... ne+Feed%29

It doesn't take much to start a furor with foodies, no matter how retrograde their tastes may be. Last fall, it was the pork industry crying wolf about an anticipated shortage of ham and bacon because of feed crops decimated by drought. This year, it's the National Chicken Council taking Mother Nature and the federal government to task for a shortfall in the production of chicken wings that will hold consumption to 1.23 billion wing segments during the 2013 Super Bowl, 12.3 million less than last year.

It's not that our appetite for these zesty, protein-rich snacks has diminished. Quite the contrary, said Bill Roenigk, chief economist and market analyst at the National Chicken Council, a Washington, D.C.-based trade group.

"Chicken companies produced about 1 percent fewer birds last year, due in large part to record high corn and feed prices," Roenigk said. "Corn makes up more than two-thirds of chicken feed and corn prices hit an all-time high in 2012, due to two reasons: last summer's drought and pressure from a federal government requirement that mandates 40 percent of our corn crop be turned into fuel in the form of ethanol. Simply put, less corn equals higher feed costs, which means fewer birds produced."

And Americans are serious about their chicken wings, no more so than during Super Bowl weekend, the second-biggest eating day of the year—Thanksgiving is still tops with gourmands. If those 1.23 billion chicken wing segments were laid end to end, they would stretch between the San Francisco 49ers Candlestick Park and the Baltimore Ravens M&T Bank Stadium 27 times.

The vast majority of wings, especially those destined for restaurants, are disjointed, with the third joint (the thin part known as the flapper) being exported to Asian countries and the meatier first and second joints being sold in the U.S. The wing is usually split into two parts — or portions or segments — known as the "drumette" and the midsection or "flat" and sold to restaurants or retail grocery outlets.

The wholesale price of wings will be the most expensive ever during Super Bowl XLVII as demand rises and the supply shrinks. Wings are also currently the highest-priced part of the chicken — the wholesale price for wings is currently about $2.11 a pound in the Northeast, the highest on record at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, up 22 cents or 12 percent from a year earlier.

Deep-fried chicken wings have long been a staple of Southern cooking. But the concept of cooking wings in peppery hot sauce was born in 1964 at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, N.Y., when co-owner Teressa Bellissimo cooked leftover wings in hot sauce as a late-night snack for her son and his friends. The boys liked them so much that the Bellissimos put them on the menu the next day. Served with celery slices and blue cheese sauce, "buffalo wings" were an instant hit.

Their fame subsequently spread and included adoption by national chains. But a classy touch has largely been cast by the wayside. More and more, wing devotees' have abandoned the piquancy of blue cheese dip in favor of the anodyne neutrality of ranch dressing now favored by almost six in 10 U.S. adults. Only a third of the purist faithful remain.

Bartenders and restaurateurs quickly climbed aboard the bandwagon when they realized they could charge low prices for the relatively inexpensive protein and they discovered that beer sales would go through the roof when customers ate the wings with its spicy, salty sauce.

Vegas Superbowl Odds:

Times “Harbaugh” will be said during game: over/under 21.5
This seems like a clear one to go over, because my word, we've heard that name 16,000 times already this week and it's only Monday. There's plenty of Harbaugh-riffic props other than this one.

Length of postgame handshake/hug between Harbaugh brothers: over/under 7.5 seconds
That's a long hug, even for brothers.

Times Jack Harbaugh shown during game: over/under 2.5
The father of John and Jim Harbaugh will get plenty of air time, don't worry.

How long will it take Alicia Keys to sing National Anthem: over/under 2 minutes, 15 seconds
A quick search for "Alicia Keys national anthem" on YouTube didn't turn up any good research material. It's probably always best to take the over on this anyway. A singer doesn't get an audience of a few hundred million people very often, so she won't be trying to wrap it up in less than 2:15.

Will Alicia Keys be booed? Yes is +500 (bet $100 to win $500)
Who boos the national anthem singer?

Will Alicia Keys mess up the lyrics? Yes is +170
Ah, there you go. Parlay this one with the prop bet above if you're feeling lucky.

Will Jay-Z join Beyonce on stage during halftime show? Yes is +110
Hova ain't passing on a chance like this - yes is an easy play here.

Will Beyonce’s hair be straight, not curly? Yes is +110
Told you they get silly on these.

Color of Gatorade dumped on winning coach: clear/water: +$200; orange: +$250; yellow: +$250; blue: +$700; green: +$700; red: +$700
If you have a friend who is on the equipment staff of either team, the inside information could pay off huge here. Stocklemonblog.com has run the numbers of the last 11 Gatorade baths, and "clear" has cashed a ticket four times, just ahead of orange, yellow and "none" at two each. (For the record, according to the Stock Lemon Blog, the two instances of a coach not getting a Gatorade bath over the last 11 years was New England's Bill Belichick, who avoided it when the Patriots won on last-second field goals ... because you were dying to know, I'm sure.)

And yes, that just about proves it: Not only can you bet just about anything related to the Super Bowl in Las Vegas this week, there will always be someone trying to find some value in those betting lines to beat the house. Harbaugh, Harbaugh, Harbaugh, Harbaugh.

Last night at 6:30. Ravens won by 4 points. It looked like it was going to be a blow-out but the 49ers made a close game of it.

Power went out in the Superdome for half an hour in the 3rd quarter.

I think your finger slipped on the keyboard. I thought the score was 34-31, which is still a win for the Ravens but by 3 instead of 4.

Either way the Ravens played hard and earned that trophy. 49ers just didn't have their game together in that first half and I think that power outage actually helped the 49ers to get back in the game and kept them from getting whooped.

Either way I wanted to cry when Crabtree missed that last catch. :tissue2:

I didn't really care, since my team blew a 17 point lead to the 49ers. I was just watching the commercials and Beyonce wiggle her butt.
