Wow, what a game! It almost seemed like two separate games, the way the momentum shifted so dramatically in the second half to the 49ers, after their near-complete domination by the Ravens in the first half. But then the Big Mo shifted again in the last quarter, and we even saw a rarely used tactic employed by Baltimore – intentionally giving up a safety to run down the clock.
By the by, Piers Morgan saw fit to shove his oar in: “Got to laugh at Ravens being declared 'World Champions' of a competition only American teams enter”. Well, Piers, you certainly don’t have to worry about an exclusionary nationalist bias with respect to your “World’s Biggest A$$hole” title; you’re the clear standout in an international field.
As to the commercials – meh. Nothing particularly brilliant – with one outstanding exception. I thought the Dodge truck ad featuring an old radio broadcast by the late Paul Harvey in tribute to the American farmer was riveting. I don’t know what firm was responsible for that commercial, but the GOP should sign ‘em up quick.
