Congratulations to the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens, both of whom defeated the home teams (Atlanta Falcons) in the NFC and (New England Patriots) AFC (respectively) championship games today. Today’s winners will meet in two weeks’ time for the classic Superbowl XLVII to be held in the Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The most unique aspect of the title game will be the fact that for the first time in history, two brothers will meet as head coaches. John Harbaugh, head coach for the Ravens, will face off with younger brother Jim Harbaugh of the 49ers. As John put it today (paraphrasing) “It’s not about us, but it will be about the players. Watch for a great game.”
