As Smokey used to say – this is a mortal lock. My predictive skills regarding sporting events is legendary.

If anyone dare disagree with me, do so at your own peril.

The TBPer with the most accurate prediction will have the privelage of working for one week at LLPOH’s manufacturing plant. Just don’t get sick or wear a thumb ring or call him a capitalist pig or ask him for an extra long lunch hour.

    The 49ers, under the direction of Lord Jim of the Harbaugh who is to be Cannonized, will bring the hallowed Lombardi to its rightful home, Candlestick for one year before the new arena is consecrated in its alabaster glow.

    The score will matter not so much as the victory. His Holiness Bill of the Walsh will peer from his seat in Heaven and not even the Roof of the Super Dome can stop his angelic gaze as he watches the most exciting team in Proffesional Sports, the San Francisco 49ers, rule this day.

    Other than that, yeah 24-17 is a good bet.

    —-Thunker (not a misspelling)

    Thunker the Clunker needs a math lesson. You can get to 15 with 5 field goals or two touchdowns, 2 missed PATs, and a field goal, and get to 9 with 3 field goals or a touchdown, missed PAT, and a field goal. No safeties or 2-point conversions involved.

    Bend over. I’m warming up my ass-kicking leg.

SSS is the go to guy, he’s got people on the inside, people that control the outcomes of things like the Super Bowl.

    Even before acquiring their coaches brother for the 9ers, the Ravens have been my 2nd favorite. Smashing D, plowing O line…. a team that personifies smash-mouth football. I will not be AS devastated at a Ravens upset…

    But there won’t be an upset. The drama behind their old beastly Ray Ray won’t win the day. The 49ers is all dat and more. This is the year we take back the trophy after its absence.

    The Ravens are going down like a pock-marked crack whore for a silver dollar:

    With short-lived attitude and gusto.

    Watch and weep as our tattooed interloper-turned read-option sensation spins Reed and Lewis like curs chasing their tails.

    Watch for one-handed leaps from Crabtree. Watch how Davis bounces defenders off like helmet-clad rag dolls. Watch Goldson like a bull in a china cabinet. Watch the Smiths rub Flacco’s nose in the turf like a misbehaving puppy. Watch Sopoaga belly-flop Ohre into a pancake. Watch Staley and the gang part defenders for Gore like Moses and the Red Sea.

    The Ravens will return home broken.

    I get the feeling Admin is laughing his ass off right now. If not, he will be after he reads this:

    This Moment Of “Electrifying” Football Comedy Brought To You By The “Greenest Game” In Superbowl History

    While it is now unanimous that Solyndra just won the funniest ad of the Superbowl by a mile, while we await for electricity to return to the Superdome (a stadium which has seen some $471 million in taxpayer funds since Katrina, and apparently not nearly enough) as the Boeing battery used to power up Super Bowl 47 is replaced, we wish to bring to our readers this message of supreme ironic poetry delivered by none other than the US Department of Energy.

    While the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers compete to hoist the Vince Lombardi trophy this weekend, eco-friendly fans and city leaders in New Orleans are competing to maximize sustainability practices to the fullest.

    To make this the greenest Super Bowl, the New Orleans Host Committee has partnered with fans and the community to offset energy use across the major Super Bowl venues. The exterior of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome features more than 26,000 LED lights on 96 full-color graphic display panels, designed to wash the building in a spectrum of animated colors, patterns and images. The system draws only 10 kilowatts of electricity — equivalent to the amount of energy used by a small home — and the lights are expected to last for many years before needing replacement.

    Off the football field, New Orleans is embracing energy efficiency with help from the Energy Department. The city retrofitted four libraries using an integrative design approach — adding motion sensor lights, energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, and upgrades to the building envelopes. These improvements helped cut the libraries’ energy costs by 30 percent and serve as a standard for other city-owned buildings. New Orleans streets feature more than 1,200 energy-efficient light fixtures. In addition to saving the city money on energy costs — an estimated $70,000 annually — the new lights help the city reduce routine maintenance due to their longer lifespan.

    Embracing energy efficiency and renewable energy is having a profound impact on attracting developers and private industry in the New Orleans’ re-building efforts. The push to re-invent this destination city contributes to makingSunday’s game the greenest in Super Bowl history.

    No matter. This power outage bullshit is symptomatic of what’s ahead for this country. One of the most widely viewed sports events on the planet, and we can’t even keep the fucking power functioning correctly. This is Third World bullshit. I’m sure they’ll blame it on Bush.

    Back to the game. It’s Ravens 31 1/2, 9ers 6. Close to the fat lady singing.

    The Ravens punter would be to blame. Not the lights. Up 28-6 punting from his own 44 and he kicks the thing into the end zone on one bounce? That last punt that let the niners get a good return was no thing of beauty. Bet he won’t be punting for the Ravens next year.

    Be honest – how many besides me called for the safety before they ran it? Downside was a runback for a td, but otherwise it was game over when they went for the safety. The punt brought into play: bad snap (although that is probably a safety in any event), bad punt, punt return for td, and at least one more play from inside the fifty (perhaps even a long field goal attempt). Smart play to take the safety.

    Lights out almost sunk the Ravens.

    OK, the Ravens punter did good but only because he wasn’t being rushed. The better coach one because if you were the 49′ers you had to anticipate that and BLITZ the kicker and pray you can tackle him for a fumble recovery in the end zone. Then which Harbaugh looks stupid?
