It all comes down to this.

On Sunday, February 3, the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers will meet in Super Bowl XLVII (5:00 p.m., CBS) at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

The game will mark the first time in any of the four major professional sports (NFL, NBA, MLB or NHL) that brothers — Baltimore’s John and San Francisco’s Jim Harbaugh — will match up against one another as head coaches in a postseason game.

Education Thirty Years From Now (Super Bowl LXXVII)

Andre Perry, Ph.D.

Remember when football was king. Governments and their fanatical residents used to invest so much time and money just for a chance to say, “See, I won a championship. I live in the best city.” When you look back, you have to ask, “What were we thinking?”

I don't blame professional footballers for suing the NFL for supposedly having failed adequately to protect them from head injury.

That's the way we do things in our society. We see a problem and start suing; it's our way of trying to figure out what changes need to be made and whose insurance companies are going to pay for them.

Inside the Super Bowl's Social Media Command Center

Volunteers monitor goings-on at the Social Media Command Center.
Jason Saul WWNO

Deep inside the Convention Center, well away from the throngs of journalists that have descended on the city and behind a false wall protected by a security guard, is a group of tech-savvy people manning the Super Bowl Host Committee's social media command center.

The job of the social media command center is to keep a close eye on the social space for trends and any problems that might arise, to promote the Super Bowl and the city, and to respond to people who have sent questions out into the ether on anything from sports-related inquiries to where they should eat dinner.

Super Bowl Memories: SB XXIV

Long before the San Francisco 49ers descended on the Crescent City for this year’s Super Bowl XLVII, the franchise cemented its 1980s dynasty in dominating fashion, defeating the Denver Broncos 55-10 at the Louisiana Superdome on Jan. 28, 1990.

The 45-point margin of victory remains the most lopsided in Super Bowl history.

San Francisco’s victory in Super Bowl XXIV was the fourth world championship for Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana and his 49ers, but only the first for rookie head coach George Seifert.

San Francisco 49ers Thursday Practice Report

First, it’s the Harbaugh Super Bowl. On Friday, it will be the Harbaugh dual press conference. Thursday offered the Harbaugh dual practice.

Preferring to move from the field built on the baseball field at Tulane University, John Harbaugh moved the Baltimore Ravens practice to the New Orleans Saints facility in Metairie, putting both John and Jim Harbaugh in the same facility at roughly the same time as they prepared their teams for Super Bowl XLVII.
