Super Bowl 2013: Rooting for the Ravens or 49ers?

The Baltimore Ravens will meet the San Francisco 49ers in the Harbowl ... err, Super Bowl. The Harbaugh brothers are of course the big story line, along with Ray Lewis' last ride, but who do you WANT to see win the game?

Give me the Ravens.

Unless it's the Broncos or Raiders, I usually stick with the AFC team in the Super Bowl and this year I'll do the same. My official team in the 2013 Super Bowl will be the Ravens.

Not only do i want the Ravens to win -- gotta represent that AFC -- but I think they will actually win, too. The line is only at 3.5 points in favor of the 49ers so most expect this to be a tight game.

The Ravens beat the Chiefs earlier this season and most notably in the Wild Card round of the 2010-11 playoffs. Despite that I don't have anything against the Ravens. They're not a rival. I love the way Ozzie Newsome drafts -- arguably the best personnel guy in the last 15 years, right? They're the model franchise.

That said, I don't have anything against the 49ers. They're fun to watch and they're built very well, too. Colin Kaepernick is probably the most exciting player in the NFL right now. The defense has a pair of Mizzou guys leading the way. (Sorry, KU fans.) And even I have to admit it would be cool to see Randy Moss roll outta here with a ring.

Give me the Ravens in this game. I'll make my official score prediction this weekend.

Who do you want to win the game?
