    No one mentioned the blown no call penalty during the 2nd half kickoff return? That said, 49ers dug too big of a hole and then got too conservative at the end, with 1st and goal at the 7. Up the gut run and 3 pass plays? SMH.
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    From a production point it was a real loser. The power went out, a microphone picked up the MVP quarter back dropping an "F" bomb, and very poor calls on the field. Officials lost control very chippy game. No really great commercials.

    I did however enjoy the half time show. It was great and I don't even like her music.

    Ahh... The half time show was a little lewd IMHO. Musical entertainment need not include pelvic hip-thrusts while wearing a negligee.

    I had to send my 12 year old son up to bed, and then got a suspicious look from Mrs. Whec later when she walked through the room.

    Anyone think how they would feel being in the Dome if ALL of the lights would've gone out? Mass hysteria (aside from what is usually happening at a Super Bowl)?

    How many of us were thinking 'terrorist attack' when the lights first went out, the camera froze and the announcer's microphones were dead too?

    Not me...didn't fit a terrorist attack. If they went through the effort of being able to disrupt the lighting they would hve been coordinated to do more damage such as the actual attack (gun fire, whatever). I think it might have scared folks that didn't think it through quickly.
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    So...do we call it the Blackout Bowl now? I still think it would have been interesting to see them continue play with half the lights out.

    If it had really gotten close--the lights would have gone out again. Did you know sticking a pin in a voodoo light bulb really works?

    Too be fair it was announce way ahead of time that Beyonce was performing and that was a Beyonce performance. At least she did not have an "equipment malfunction".
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    LOL. Yuh. I naively assumed that she was a singer, not a stripper.

    Hope this guy is better at selling furniture than making bets:
    Jacoby Jones won a lot of Baltimoreans some free furniture with his kickoff return for a TD | Shutdown Corner - Yahoo! Sports

    Gardiners Furniture of Baltimore offered a promotion to any customer who purchased furniture this past weekend: If a Raven returned a kick for a touchdown to start the game or the second half, boom: free furniture!
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
