in 2007 the opposing coaches were Lovie Smith and Tony Dungy, who are both black. Black males are often referred to as 'brothers'.

this year the opposing coaches are Jim Harbaugh and John Harbaugh, who are biological brothers.

Well now I'm curious.. what grand conspiracy prevented both the Falcons and Patriots from scoring -at all- in their respective second halves? (the roughing on Kaepernick was BS, but other than that...?)

Subby here

I really do think the 'Jack Harbaugh's son will win/lose the Super Bowl' headlines are more clever than mine, but that might only be because I was sitting on the joke I used for this headline for nine hours before I finally got the chance to submit it and probably got tired of it around hour five or so. Of course they also farked up the names, so who am I to judge?

They both sucked in the 2nd half?

I'm not a food expert by any means, but I'm guessing I know enough to say that this year's Super Bowl involves three of the finest seafood cities in the United States: New Orleans, San Francisco and Baltimore.

(If I'm way off base let me know so I won't go around repeating it ...)

You should ask them if they think the loss is going to help the owner of the Falcons convince the government to give the half a billion dollars of public money he wants for a new stadium. Pretty sure going to the Super Bowl would have helped the cause.

Considering the Falcons were able to keep the 49ers from scoring on consecutive posessions following Falcon turnovers, Atlanta should be thankful they were even competing in the final minutes.

Apparently 21 years is too old for a stadium nowadays (the age of the Georgia Dome). Hell, I remember games at Fulton County Stadium (now THAT place was a dump).

The only real disappointment was how the game was pretty much over by the 4th quarter. We've been spoiled by so many crazy games over the past two weekends, I just kinda expected the Ravens/Pats to be a little more exciting...
 
2013-01-21 01:41:21 AM  
Well, time to draw up the Super Bowl pre-pre-game bingo cards. Let's see what we have to work with:

1. Harbaugh bros.
2. Ray Lewis' last game (for realsies this time)
3. Katrina
4. 'The Wire' reference
5. Colin Kaepernick is a bi-racial angel
6. Who has the better fish market?

I dunno.. even though the Pats were down by 2 scores, I never really got a sense it was over until that last interception. You never know with the Pats.

I was actually thinking about that when I wrote the headline. I was trying to make the joke as clear as possible and for some reason I thought 'both' was appropriate because those unfamiliar with the subject might not know that there are only two head coaches in the Super Bowl.

Really, if you want to read into it, this headline could be used for any Super Bowl that has had two coaches with male siblings. I didn't catch that until after I had submitted it and I actually thought that would end up costing me the greenlight. I'm too drunk to care now, but this is what the Fark headline rat race does to people, y'know?

Hmm, seems that the NFL didn't let ESPN know about this grand conspiracy.

Wild Card week ESPN headlines "It's gonna be great to see Peyton Manning face off against Andrew Luck and the Colts"
Divisional week ESPN headlines "Manning vs. Brady, the epic battle of the century"
Conference week ESPN headlines "Brady in the Super Bowl for the sixth time. His legacy is confirmed".

On the other end of it, they were predicting the Seahawks vs. the Packers in the championship game. The only started talking about the 49ers after the 'Hawks choked it up in Atlanta by allowing a last second fieldgoal.

When I was a little kid I watched Superman 3 and I didn't understand why Richard Pryor didn't have powers or flight after he called Superman his brother.

And then I saw the robot scene and that traumatized me for years.

What a weird movie.

2013-01-21 03:17:27 AM  
My insincere apologies to Falcons fans, but thanks for not inundating my city.

Look, you guys had a great run. But there was no way I was anything but a 49ers fan tonight.

 I despise the Falcons, and always will. The 49ers are a long-lost div rival from the old NFC West, and I've gotten over it. Now that that we know the teams, I honestly have no dog as long as I can venture outside without being inundated by dirty birds. That was my greatest fear.

 Suck it, ATL.

My guess is just outside the stadium along 295, but I'm not certain, since I saw a bunch of these tonight.

No, but after reading your headline again, people can be brothers to other people so you have to get a few points off for that. The language could have been tighter but your headline was still the best.

This is why 2013 is the 49ers last season in San Francisco. San Francisco said no Santa Clara said yes. The 49ers even flew into San Jose tonight and not SFO in days of old after playoff wins they'd fly into the city.

I still don't know how they can keep the name "San Francisco". The only 9ers gear I'd ever get would be some knockoff that calls them the Santa Clara 49ers and I'd wear it when I go to the city.

As noted time and time again, I despise the Falcons.

But I love me some Gonzalez. That man has been terrorizing my team forever and a day. So while I'll tell the Falcons to suck it, allow me to humbly bow to your greater players.

You know who they are.

2013-01-21 06:26:06 AM  
And the good thing is, every sportscaster and the announcers in the Super Bowl are going to repeat this fact ad nauseum for the next two weeks. Remember how insufferable this was then these two teams played in the regular season last year? Multiply that by a factor of 1000 now.

Seriously...just stab out your eyes and ear drums now. You'll thank me for it later.
