Clash of the Titans


“Say HarBROwl one more time,” I say, in my Samuel Jackson voice then laugh out loud.  I love how NFL fans are using the Harbaugh brothers to colorize this year’s Super Bowl.  I say “this year,” because let’s face it; we all suffer from the inability to read those darn Roman numerals.

If you haven’t heard people spoofing HarBROwl, maybe you’ve heard: SuperBaugh, HarBowl, or BrosBowl.  Aren’t these catchphrases hilarious?  I think so.  If definitely puts a different spin on Super Bowl 2013.  (Yeah, there should be Roman numerals at the end.  But like I said, they’re hard to read.) 

The Harbaugh brothers—John Harbaugh’s Baltimore Ravens and Jim Harbaugh’s San Francisco 49ers—meeting in the Super Bowl is indeed historic. It’s the first time two brothers have squared off in a Super Bowl as head coaches and it puts me in the mind frame of the gods, Acrisius and Proetus, the two twin brothers who rivaled each other.  Make no mistake about it; no matter how loving they are toward each other off the field, when these two meet at the Super Bowl, they are rivals.

But let us not forget another historic piece to this Super Bowl story: Ray Lewis.  After a 17-year run, he’s retiring.  No more dancing on the field, not a lot of amazing sacks to look forward to.  Super Bowl 2013 is the last game we’ll see Lewis play.  

Will a distinguished and decorated Lewis and his teammates win their second Super Bowl ring?  Or will the Niners halt the Ravens’ quest and obtain their sixth Super Bowl ring? 

Let’s look at how the dice is rolling.  The 49ers have a four-point edge.  But, both the Niners and the Ravens have jaws-of-steel defenses with four of the best safeties on the field:  Ed Reed and Bernard Pollard for the Ravens and Dashon Goldson and Donte Whitner for the Niners.  So there will be a lot of clashing of the titans on the field, aside from the Harbaugh brothers and Ray Lewis.  

You have Ravens running back Ray Rice and 49ers back Frank Gore.  Both bring excitement to the field with their game-changer plays. 

Out of all the clashing on the field, I believe the rivaling quarterbacks will be the most fun to watch.  First, there is Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco who has been absolutely electric his first five years in the NFL.  And his three-game playoff run this year is, hands down, one of the best performances in postseason history.  Next up is 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick who came off the bench and, in only his 10th NFL start, is considered one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks playing right now.  Not only can Kaepernick stretch his arm, he can rush for yardage, squashing all the talk about whether a running quarterback can take his team to the Promised Land.  

I wish there could be a fairy-tale ending for John and Jim Harbaugh, Ray Lewis, Flacco, and Kaepernick.  But we all know it doesn’t work that way.  Still, I congratulate both teams for making Sunday night’s game one of the most historic games of all time.
