Super Bowl XLVII, this year’s edition of the championship game of the National Football League (NFL) in the United States will start on 3 February and will determine the 2012 champion.
The game is the highest level of professional American football in the United States, culminating a season that begins in the late summer of the previous calendar year.
After the Baltimore Ravens defeated the New England Patriots in the American Football Conference (AFC) championship game over the weekend and the San Francisco 49ers won over the Atlanta Falcons earlier in the day in the National Football Conference (NFC) title showdown, the Super Bowl 2013 puts the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers against each other for the title NFL champion.
The most interesting part, however, is that the coaches of the two American football teams are brothers Jim and John Harbaugh.
The first and only time the 49-year-old Jim and 50-year old John faced each other in NFL history was in 2011 when the Ravens defeated the 49ers, 16-6, on Thanksgiving night.
Emotions and anticipation, mixed with the performance of Beyonce in the Super Bowl halftime show, will form the atmosphere of the game. Definitely, the 49ers have what to ‘give back’, while the Ravens will strive for a ‘win at all costs’.
It is more than ‘a family affair’, it is Super Bowl.
