In a Super Bowl that featured a “blackout,” a near brawl and an intentional safety, it is only fitting that for the first time in its history the Vince Lombardi Trophy was lost. According to NFL.com, Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh admitted to reporters that for a short time Sunday night, the Ravens had misplaced the trophy they had been working for all season. “We hadn’t seen this [trophy] since last night,” Harbaugh said. “We thought we lost it.” While there is no word on how the trophy was lost, it can be safely assumed there is probably a very interesting story explaining its disappearance. According to the Baltimore Sun the Ravens were treated to an after-party that included a live performance by Mary J. Blige. Ray Lewis was even kind enough to accompany Blige on stage and teach her his famous “squirrel dance.” Harbaugh was still unaware of who returned the trophy to its rightful owner, but he made a point of thanking the good Samaritan at his news conference.
