Last night’s Super Bowl will go down in memory as the one where the head-coaches from the opposing teams were brothers, to the Ravens domineering the first-half, to the surprise Destiny’s Child reunion during the half-time show, to Baltimore’s Jacoby Jones’ 108 yard kickoff return to start off the 3rd quarter, to the 37-minute Super Dome power outage game delay, followed by the 49ers’ threat to upset the Ravens for the remainder of the second-half.
