Okay.  I admit it.  When push came to shove, I really didn’t care who won Super Bowl XLVII today which is unusual for The Red Man who typically has a favorite team   I pulled halfheartedly for Baltimore because of the Chris Culliver episode on Media Day earlier this week, but I won’t go into that again tonight.  Of course the old woman Slow would NEVER miss the Super Bowl, and I confess  I was hooked right along with her from the pre-game ceremonies to the presentation of the Vince Lombardi Trophy afterwards.  Here’s why…

the 49ers decided to play football.  Game on.
