baltimore ravens super bowl champions.

the ravens survived a san francisco comeback and won super bowl 47 34-31.  it was looking like a blowout at halftime, then as the third quarter started jacoby jones ran a record tying 108 yard kickoff return for a touchdown to make it 28-6.  then the most bizarre thing happened - half the superdome lights went out, causing a 35 minute delay.  that benefitted the 49ers as they scored 17 points in jsut over four minutes after the delay.  by the end of it, the ravens win it  quite the second half.  congrats to the ravens.
