Super Bowl XLVII -- February 2013

I hardly ever mention football in this blog, but it seemed appropriate because the 49ers are playing the Baltimore Ravens today in the Super Bowl in New Orleans.  There has been a bunch of vendors on Market Street every day selling 49ers stuff. 

The image is from the 29-November-1901 San Francisco Call.  It shows the Olympic Club playing the Reliance Club on a muddy field at 16th and Folsom.

Update 8pm:  The 49ers started out flat and Baltimore was way ahead.  After a 30-minute power outage early in the second half, the 49ers woke up and very nearly came back to win.  But they didn't.  Still, it was a heck of a game.
