Super Bowl 2013: What Hollywood Is Saying About the Baltimore Ravens' Win
"Got to laugh at Ravens being declared 'World Champions' of a competition only American teams enter," quipped Piers Morgan.
What started out as a lopsided near-blowout ended up as a nail-biter in a game that came down to the final seconds.
The Baltimore Ravens were leading the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII by a score of 28-6 until a power outage in New Orleans' Superdome caused a 35-minute delay. After play resumed, the 49ers rallied to bring the score to 34-29.
In the final two minutes, the Ravens gave the 49ers a safety, bringing it to a three-point game. The last play saw the 49ers punt, but time ran out and a tackle ended the game at a score of 34-31.
Afterward, many people in Hollywood took to Twitter to give their reactions to TV's biggest event. Among them:
Great game - congrats to the Ravens. #Superbowl

The 49ers made it a close game. I thought they would come back to win but at least it wasn't a blowout. Congrats to the Ravens.
