"Boil out the flimsiest, fuzziest story lines and this Super Bowl is supremely easy to summarize in less than 25 words. The 49ers are a little better at the best things the Ravens do and a lot better at the things the Ravens do worst," Kawakami wrote. "There you have it. Simple, crisp, lean, complete... and almost nothing like any of the food I plan to consume in the French Quarter next week. OK, a little more: The 49ers have the more dynamic quarterback, the more varied offense and the stronger, younger defense, which are all the tangible pieces that mark a team as an eventual Super Bowl champion. They will win this game, and let's just go ahead and predict the score: 49ers 27, Baltimore 17."

"The day he lost his job, Cam Cameron decided to go to his son Danny's high school basketball game," he wrote. "As soon as Cameron arrived at the gymnasium, he could sense that people were staring at him. It struck him as pity, or perhaps morbid curiosity. 'People were numb because they think you should run and hide,' he said. 'They think you're embarrassed. I've got nothing to be embarrassed about.' Until Dec. 10, Cameron occupied a high-profile position as the offensive coordinator of the Baltimore Ravens. Then he was fired, and the Ravens began to thrive without him. The team's remarkable postseason run will culminate in a Super Bowl appearance against the San Francisco 49ers. Some in the punditry business have cited Cameron's firing as a catalyst for the team's success. If you think this annoys him, think again."
