-Time for the bowl of all bowls. It’s the game that anyone around the game of football longs to be a part of, and it’s happening Sunday. It’s the sporting world’s unofficial holiday and people from all four corners of the universe will be watching.

- Super Bowl. It sounds normal because it’s all the majority of us know, but when you really say it and focus on it, isn’t it kind of corny? Why not the Awesome bowl, or Magnificent Bowl? No, just plainly--”the Super Bowl.” Genius in simplicity.

- Wait, isn’t this supposed to be a quarterback league? It’s not like Joe Flacco and Colin Kaepernick are toilet-scum, but they aren’t exactly known as elite quarterbacks. No, instead its two teams with defensive calling cards looking to win it all. Eat your heart out Tom Brady.

- On that note, who else wanted to see a Manning vs. Brady matchup in the AFC Championship with the winner going on to face Aaron Rodgers? At least Rodgers has a shot at winning the commercial MVP as we’re all sure to see plenty of “discount double-check” spots. Rodgers might still get more camera time than most of the guys playing for league supremacy.

- Looking for where the Super Bowl MVP will come from? There’s a good chance it’ll be at the quarterback position. Of the 46 games played to date, 25 have gone to the guy slinging passes with a surgeon’s precision. Only eight defensive players have won the award.

- Hey Ray Lewis, deer-antler spray? Are you kidding me? Do they flavor that stuff?

- Let’s start a petition now on making the Monday after the Super Bowl a holiday shall we? There is no harder morning to drag your hind-end out of bed than the day after staying up too late to enjoy a salad of advertising marathons, fermented beverages, and artery clogging food to go along with a pretty important game. Who’s with me?

- So the 49ers will put their unblemished record in Super Bowls on the line eh? Can they make it 6-0? That’s my call. Win and tie the Cowboys for the most wins in Awesome Bowl history.

- If you are a Cleveland Browns fan you have to be hating life. The team can’t get over the hump and even appear in a Super Bowl while in Northeastern Ohio, yet the franchise becomes a model of consistency as the Baltimore Ravens. On top of that, if the Ravens pull it out, Clevelanders will have endured the double gut-punch of LeBron and the Ravens both winning a championship in the same calendar year. Ah, the shores of Lake Erie become icier and icier as time passes.

- Want an under-the-radar guy that could have a big, big impact on this game? How about 49ers tight- end Vernon Davis? You can bet the Ravens defense will be prepared to stop Colin Kaepernick on the ground, and the secondary should be able to handle the ‘Niners wide-outs. That’s going to leave some holes for Davis to get some opportunities.

- Don’t believe the talk of Ray Lewis re-thinking his retirement. He’ll be headed off into the sunset after this one...robo arm and all. The question is if it’ll be a storybook ending, or quiet fade-to-black.

- Who will be the proudest parents in the milky-way galaxy on Sunday? How about Jack and Jackie Harbaugh? One of their sons will win the first--and likely only--Har-Bowl. It sounds great, but this is the sort of thing that can divide a house.

- Prediction time: San Fran 24, Baltimore 17. Game on. Food on. Party on. And yes, lack of sleep on.
