This Sunday is the Super Bowl between the Ravens and the 49ers. The 49ers are named after the gold miners that came to California in 1849. The Ravens are named after Edgar Allan Poe's famed poem, The Raven. Poe died in Baltimore in 1849. Thus the connection to 1849 in history to two modern football teams.
Now the Raven will win this Sunday. The Ravens, after all, have a MUCH better logo design and branding then the 49ers, so we will leave it with that alone. Enjoy the game and commercials, I know I will. Go Ravens!
