The game itself was action packed. With a blow out beginning, the sea of purple Ravens’ fans in the stadium were going nuts. But after the power outage, it got eerily quiet on the Baltimore half of the field. Everyone had the same thought, this better not stop our momentum… and hindsight shows that Ravens’ fans were worried for good reason. The third quarter could not end fast enough for the Ravens. Fortunately they picked it back up again in the fourth. But the 49ers showed their power and played a great game. Kaepernick is off to a phenomenal start and we are excited to see where he goes. Meanwhile, we are sad to see Ray Lewis retiring, though he has had an incredible career and couldn’t be happier that he topped it off with a Super Bowl win.
It’s incredible what all of the NFL athletes put themselves through, and the diligence they have in their training schedules to stay healthy and fit despite all the potential for injury.
I want to share some pictures from the game, to give you a perspective from the seats. You’ll also see that the blackout wasn’t nearly as dark in the stadium as it appeared on TV. It was actually pretty well lit, which goes to show how much additional lighting the cameras need!
