The AFC and NFC Championship games are over, which means Super Bowl XLVII is just around the corner. The Baltimore Ravens are all set to take on the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Dome, with each team hoping to be crowned NFL Champions. The Ravens got to this point by finishing the 2012 regular season with a 10-6 record and then they defeated the Colts, Broncos and finally the Patriots in the AFC Championship game. The Niners earned their place in the Super Bowl by finishing the season with an 11-4-1 record, and then defeated the Packers and finally the Falcons in the NFC Championship game. The Ravens are looking to win their second Super Bowl while the Niners are looking to win their sixth.
The NFL's biggest attraction creates a media frenzy so huge that you have to actively seek out to avoid the Super Bowl to miss it. However, it's possible to miss, especially if you live in a cave and you don't have any access to television, the Internet or human interaction of any kind. If you're worried that you may show up to work on Monday, Feb. 4 with nothing to talk about around the water cooler, here's some info you may need.
