Super Bowl XLVII

By: Denny Peck

Get ready for Super Bowl XLVII (47) coming to a big screen near you this Sunday!  This year the Baltimore Ravens  and the San Francisco 49ers will compete for the title of Super Bowl Champions.

The 47th Super Bowl will take place at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA on Sunday, February 3, 2013.  Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 EST/5:30 CST on CBS.

For the first time in professional football history, a pair of brothers will lead the teams as coaches of the  Super Bowl teams.  John Harbaugh, first served as a head coach in 2008, and is head coach of the Baltimore Ravens.  His brother, Jim Harbaugh, first served as a head coach in 2004, and is head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.

Their family members haven’t decided where to sit for Super Bowl 47 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA- or if they do know where they  are sitting, they haven’t revealed their spot.  The brothers parents have stated, “We are neutral in the Super Bowl, and we are just excited that they have brought their teams to the highest point of sports,”.  The Super Bowl is the ultimate accomplishment for them, for their teams and all of the teams who have participated in the NFL.  We are very excited for Super Bowl 47.”

Along with halftime performer Beyonce, Alicia Keys will perform the  Star Spangled Banner during pregame, before the live, world broadcast of the most important football game of 2013.
