here's a crazy statistic for you....
in the past 10 seasons, the nfc has been represented by 10 different teams in the super bowl, while the afc has been represented by only 3. really gives you an appreciation for the competitive balance in the NFC. i've always thought it was the superior conference.
going by this trend, you would think it should be san francisco's turn this year. i think ten years is long enough for the this trend though, so lets hope it comes to an end on sunday.
and yes i am aware that this is a meaningless stat that has no impact on the game, but i thought it was interesting.
