Not much setting up needed for this one. World Wide Interweb has tracked down and compiled some photos of San Francisco 49ers players (and their head coach, Jim Harbaugh) and Baltimore Ravens players (and their coach, John Harbaugh) as they were when they were much, much younger, long before these men were preparing to play in all likelihood the biggest game of their lives on the biggest stage at Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans on Feb. 3.
Have a look-see, have a chuckle, have a V8 for all I care if the mood should strike you.
Ha. Good stuff. World Wide Interweb has additional photos of your favorite 49ers and Ravens players when they were young, so of course be sure sure to check them out.

Mark Kac was a Polish-born mathematician, best remembered for a paper he wrote in 1966 entitled "Can One Hear the Shape of a Drum?"
I have not read it. That little bit of info I know only from his bio which had no record of him loving American football, the NFL or any team in particular. He is dead, or I would ask.
I bring Kac up only because he had a theory that best...

Jim: Oh, I’m ready.
John: I was ready before I got to New Orleans.
Jim: I was born ready.
John: I was born ready. And I was born first, so I’m more ready.
Jim: The people and creatures I was in previous lives were ready. We carried out our various existences just...
NEW ORLEANS -- John Harbaugh and his younger brother Jim shared a bedroom growing up, but they can't split the Lombardi Trophy. One will experience the elation of winning Super Bowl XLVII, the other deflated by defeat. "In any game, that's always something you think about.

Super Bowl fever is in full force and rightfully so as this years matchup most likely will be the most gambled single sporting event of all time. Although, I can say I am a bit worn out and emotionally perplexed after religiously betting NFL games week to week, my spirit is picking up and I am ready for one more run; hopefully I end the season on a high note. After doing some minor...
