In a game that looked like a total snoozer before the lights went out, Super Bowl XLVII turned into a wild one that ended with a self-inflicted safety and a punt. You certainly can't say it was uneventful evening.
In the end, the early lead the Baltimore Ravens worked for proved to be enough. But damn, Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers made it interesting.

How about that no-call on the final San Fran chance in the end zone? Wild. Imagine if you were a Niners fan in that situation. Yikes.
There are plenty of Philadelphia tie-ins on the Super Bowl Champion Ravens. MVP Joe Flacco is the obvious local guy to get a ring. But Juan Castillo, former Eagles legendary running back Wilbert Montgomery, and former safety Sean Considine all worked to get Baltimore the trophy.
And of course John Harbaugh helped himself become a head coach by working under Ray Rhodes and Andy Reid with the Eagles.
The NFL Draft is on Thursday, April 25th.

Dealing with injuries in their crease, the Los Angeles Kings called the Flyers to check in on the availability of bad goalie Steve Mason, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.
Kings starter and otherwise really good goalie Jonathan Quick is out up to three months with a groin injury, while backup Jeff Zatkoff is currently on injured reserve with a groin injury too.
Before eventually brining in former Predators and Coyotes goaltender Anders Lindbach, Los Angeles called around the league to see if any teams might be able to help them find a replacement for Quick. Mason was one of the potential candidates, Friedman said, but Mason's $4.1 million cap hit couldn't fit into their cap situation. Plus, the Flyers don't have any cap flexibility, either.
Mason is 4-2 with a 2.77 goals-against average and .901 save percentage in six games this season.
Get this guy season tickets! (Just kidding, we don't endorse this kind of behavior and almost don't find it funny at all)
A man who if you were kind of drunk could almost look like Larry Bird's second cousin was ejected from the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night for showing a bit of negative emotion directed at Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook.

The fan was later removed from his seat and probably told to act like a decent human.
