Superbowl tonight


49ers


Well it's the Superbowl tonight and, as usual, Triple P will be staying up until the small hours of the morning  to watch it.  We admit to having a favourite this year as San Francisco are playing and not only were they the winners of the first Superbowl we watched on TV (Superbowl XIX in 1985) but we have seen them play live in both San Francisco and London.  One thing we like about San Francisco is how their uniforms have hardly changed since they were founded in 1946.  The iconic "SF" first appearing on gold helmets in 1962.  Very few other team uniforms have changed so little.


Ravens


The Ravens, on the other hand, are a newish team; coming out of the move of the Cleveland Browns (who we have also seen play live) to Baltimore in 1996.  The name is in reference to the Edgar Allan Poe story, who lived in Baltimore.  

Both teams have cheerleaders, which certainly has not necessarily been the case of late in the Superbowl.  The 49ers are narrow favourites but the form book can often go out the window so it should be close.  This year we have high definition TV for the first time too!
