Contemplating a Harbowl

The NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE playoffs played out just as I wanted yesterday.
My SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS rallied from 17 points down to defeat the ATLANTA FALCONS, 28-24.
My second-favorite team, the BALTIMORE RAVENS, shut out the favored NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS in the second half en route to a 28-13 upset.
The results set up one of the most intriguing match-ups in recent SUPER BOWL history, with head coaching brothers -- John Harbaugh (Ravens) and Jim Harbaugh (49ers) -- facing each other across the field.
Pundits and fans have dubbed the showdown "HARBOWL," and it's a repeat of Thanksgiving 2011, when the Harbaughs became the first brothers to coach against each other in NFL history.
As a Niners fan, I just hope there is a different result in this new Harbowl -- the Ravens won the first encounter, 16-6.
