Super Sunday

Are you as excited as I am for Super Bowl XLVII?  This year it's being played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA!  If you've never been to New Orleans, make sure you do someday!  The city and it's people are fantastic!  Just wish I had a few tickets for gameday!  Well, I don't see that happening so I will have to enjoy it from my own home which isn't all that bad!  Family and friends will gather for any excuse to eat, eat, eat and of course, watch some football.  This year the Baltimore Ravens will be playing the San Francisco 49ers for the championship title.  Did you know the Ravens' name was inspired by the author Edgar Allen Poe?  Poe was living in Baltimore when his most famous poem, "The Raven" was published.  The Ravens' last Super Bowl appearance was on January 28, 2001 when they scored a 34-7 victory over the New York Giants.  The Ravens' opponent on February 3rd, the San Francisco 49ers' name was inspired by gold prospectors who arrived in Northern California around 1849 during the California Gold Rush.  Ironically, Edgar Allen Poe died the same year in Baltimore.  The 49ers will make its 6th appearance in franchise history at this year's Super Bowl, having won all five times previously.  So who will you be rooting for on Sunday, February 3rd?  We've got a mixed bag of fans, young and old, joining us for the day.  Some will be sporting red, gold, and white shirts favoring the 49ers, while others will be wearing the Ravens' purple, black, gold, and white.  Zoey's Attic has just the perfect football shirts for the kiddos for gameday, and any shirt design can be customized with your favorite team's colors too.
