I watched the GIF below earlier this morning. Then I watched it again, and again. And I’m still watching it.
This is my life, and now it’s yours if you want it, because I feel obligated to do my part to ensure that as many Internet eyes as possible land on this piece of artwork by the always amazing LSU Freek.
Alright, now back to the serious matter of discussing the monumental influence of a third-string quarterback, if that exists.

Commissioner skin never felt so good.
There’s a lot of love at the draft right now. So much love.
Bro shugs for all.
We’ll be debating this sequence until next fall, so let’s get a head start now.
The details: the 49ers were down by five points. They had the ball on Baltimore’s five-yard line, with 1:50 remaining in the fourth quarter, and only one timeout. It was either score a touchdown, or end the season. Colin Kaepernick threw a fade to the back of the end zone in the direction of Michael Crabtree, who was then impeded by Jimmy Smith. Or was he?
I’ve never hated myself more than what I do at this very moment, but I actually find myself agreeing with Phil Simms here. Unless there’s absolutely egregious pass interference that ends in the receiver getting tackled and/or mauled, the officials would very much like to avoid making a call that will alter the result of a Super Bowl, and therefore NFL history.
That’s what happened here, and it’s why Jim Harbaugh did this…
What was a three-touchdown lead for the Ravens has now been cut to just five points (#BlameTheBlackout). The third quarter just came to a close, with Baltimore set to at the very least get points on their current drive and stretch the lead to eight barring a turnover, or a horrific chip-shot miss.
Still, the second half has been a blackout in more ways than one for the Ravens. The 49ers have 109 yards of offense since the lights went boom, and prior to their current drive Baltimore had only one second-half first down. Now as we watch Bernard Pierce also walking to the locker room to be evaluated after a leg injury, the Ravens’ snowball of suck is building.
Haloti Ngata suffered a gruesome-looking knee injury, and his return is questionable.
A power surge has knocked out the lights at the Superdome with the Ravens leading 28-6 in the third quarter. Ironically, half the lights went out as Phil Simms was in mid-sentence during the broadcast.
Jacoby Jones burns Chris Culliver on a 56-yard touchdown from Joe Flacco to make it 21-3 Ravens. Not only did Culliver bite on the fake, but he couldn’t rebound to make the tackle after jumping over him.
