Since 2004, we as sports fans have been very lucky. Every Super Bowl after the debacle that was the Oakland Raiders vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers has been a memorable one. The final score of that game was 48-21, although if you remember the game, it wasn't even that close.

Results of every Super Bowl since 2004:

  • XXXVIII - 2/1/2004 - New England Patriots over Carolina Panthers 32–29
  • XXXIX - 2/6/2005 - New England Patriots over Philadelphia Eagles 24–21
  • XL - 2/5/2006 - Pittsburgh Steelers over Seattle Seahawks 21–10
  • XLI - 2/4/2007 - Indianapolis Colts over Chicago Bears 29–17
  • XLII - 2/3/2008 - New York Giants over New England Patriots 17–14
  • XLIII - 2/1/2009 - Pittsburgh Steelers over Arizona Cardinals 27–23
  • XLIV - 2/7/2010 - New Orleans Saints over Indianapolis Colts 31–17
  • XLV - 2/6/2011 - Green Bay Packers over Pittsburgh Steelers 31–25
  • XLVI - 2/5/2012 - New York Giants over New England Patriots 21–17
  • XLVII - 2/3/2013 - Baltimore Ravens over San Francisco 49ers 34–31

I was nervous going into halftime of last night's game that our streak of good Super Bowl's would end. I felt the 49ers and Ravens was sort of a mismatch and at the end of 30 minutes of play, the Ravens had a 21-6 lead. After the 34-minute buzzkill power outage a minute and a half into the third quarter, I was almost positive that it was going to be a blowout. Similar to what the Ravens did to the Giants on January 28th, 2001, beating them 34-7.

The Colin Kaepernick-led 49ers ended up scoring 17 points in the 3rd quarter. America got what they wanted. After the two-week layoff in between games (which I think is greatly unnecessary) and recycling of story lines, the game came down to the final play, after the 49ers made it a 3-point deficit. That's what it's all about, right? I hope the Super Bowl continues it's hot streak for at least another year. There's going to be a lot of extra excitement this time next year. It's going to be the first Super Bowl played outdoors in a cold-weather environment at MetLife Stadium.
