Congratulations Ravens! A Uniquely Gutsy Victory!
–Richard E. Vatz
What a great victory…I am not an expert, so I shall leave the game analysis to those more knowledgeable than I.
I am an expert on announcing, and Gerry Sandusky is better than CBS’s crew by far.
34-31…just fine; no one can predict scores with any regularity…but winners? No problem…
I predicted the Ravens by 10 before the game to my buds, fellow faculty member Jack Fruchtman and TU’s Athletic Director, Mike Waddell…
Ready for next year’s REpeat!
Congratulations, guys…guts at the end told the story…Flacco, Boldin, Lewis et al.
That goal line stand will live forever.

P.S. ADDENDUM: Anyone who complains, including a saintly brother or Michael Crabtree, that Jimmy Smith interfered on the last gasp play of the 49ers misses the point that officials establish parameters of closeness of calling fouls throughout the game and to have lowered that threshold for ONE play would have been close to officiating criminality.
