Super Bowl XLVII Pick: San Francisco 49ers or Baltimore Ravens?

Super Bowl

I left off yesterday by typing... "And so the pick is.....
On second thought, tune in tomorrow at this same web site. I've always loved a cliffhanger.  ;-)" Therefore it's time to offer my pick for today's Super Bowl, with whatever that's worth.

As hockey and baseball have always been my two main (equally loved sports), football isn't my area of expertise. 

I've learned that we have two brothers coaching against each other today and that the quarterbacks are both good. Ray Lewis continues to seek redemption. A well-liked former Philadelphia Eagle, Wilbert Montgomery is the Ravens running back's coach. 

In the regular season: 
The Ravens scored one more point (398) than the 49ers (397).

The 49ers allowed far less points to be scored (273) than the Ravens (344). 

The point spread for today's game favors the 49ers by approximately 4 points. 

Anyone who makes their pick is purely doing so based on a hunch, which can be an educated guess, or simply a a dart thrown at the board. Along with the input of some seasoned family members, friends and colleagues, my pick is:

49ers: 30
Ravens: 28

Do not base your call on my hunch. I don't have any money riding on this game in office pools, or the like. Enjoy what is a great national (and worldwide) spectacle with those who you will be with today.

Here are some of my football-related interview features that you might be interested in reading:

Classic headline: Those great hockey cards
Nothing topped the meaning that these hockey cards still hold. Here is the special feature that still ranks among the most-read articles that I've written since 2011:

Classic Headline: Three Flyers' Legends

Each of these Flyers' legends (Brian Propp, Dave Poulin and Tim Kerr) deserved their own feature article:

Here is a link to the story about Propp:

Bygone days spent with elementary school days and family members opening packs of Topps cardboard gold never truly fade away.
