No offense, but holy cow. I'd rather root for a team with one ring and a rivalry, than a team with 5 going on 6 rings that I have no feeling for one way or the other.
Some of you are acting as though the "Stairway to Seven" is only just around the corner. May I remind you how long it took just to get to ring number 6? While I'm as hopeful as any other fan of the black and gold that seven is just around the corner, to blithely assume that it's no big deal if the 49ers tie us because we'll be gettin' number 7 in a year or two - well, just be careful what you wish for.
I would be willing to bet if Vegas had odds on which team would win 7 first right now, the 49ers would be a slight favorite even before this Super Bowl is played. If the 49ers win, they would definately be a favorite to get there first.
That being said. Can't cheer for the Ravens. Just can't do it.
