There was so much to digest in the Ravens' 34-31 victory over the 49ers, from the thrilling finish, to possible blown calls by the referees, to the power outage, to a rout that became a tight game following that outage, to the coaching Harbaugh brothers to Ray Lewis' final game, to the commercials and Beyonce's halftime show.
There was something for everyone who tuned in to what seemed to be 100 hours of pregame, followed by the Super Bowl itself.
Did the better team win? I'm not so sure.
Did the better team that night win? Definitely.
The enduring images from the game — and everything that surrounded it — will linger for quite some time.
If future Super Bowls can match the thrills and excitement of this one, the NFL's future is brighter than ever.
