I have to say that I was actually looking forward to this year’s Super Bowl, and I can’t say that about many of the bowl match-ups. Typically I’ll watch but can easily be distracted by other things. So I arranged my day so I could watch the game. I can say I was mostly neutral about the outcome, but if pressed I’d admit that I favored the 49ers. I think largely because I grew up during their dynasty days. And I always felt as though Joe & Steve did a nice job of presenting themselves as role models.
After the first half and the opening of the second I was less than hopeful for a 49ers win. The power outage provided an opportunity to help my daughter with studying for a test, and then when I returned to the game much to my surprise the 49ers were right back in the game! They almost pulled out the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history, but instead it is being called by some as a controversial ending and a win by the Ravens.
This Super Bowl definitely provided an “on the edge of your seat” comeback bid. Record setting performances. A half-time performance largely free of controversy. Some pretty entertaining commercials. This bowl match-up also brought us an opportunity to extract real world lessons that can be applied to everyday work life. These lessons are nicely outlined in the article below. A good read as there is a little something for everyone in it.
