NFL Conference Championship Weekend

Any thoughts on who goes to the Super Bowl after Sunday's games?

I have been (and will continue to be) an NFL conspiracy theorist, so I think that the match-up will be determined by the best story lines.

Potential Match-ups:

Baltimore vs. NYG

Baltimore vs. San Francisco

New England vs. NYG

New England vs. San Francisco

Of the four, only two have intriguing story lines-- a NE-NYG rematch from four years ago and Baltimore-SF.

Clearly, the more intriguing is the Ravens-49ers game. There are three distinct story lines here:

1. Harbaugh Bowl, Part II. Two brothers take their teams head-to-head for the title. Also, did everyone know that Tom Crean (Indiana's head basketball coach) is their brother-in-law?

2. Captain Comeback returns to Indy. Jim Harbaugh nearly lead the Colts to the Super Bowl in the mid-90s and now returns to Indy for the Super Bowl with the 49ers.

3. Baltimore plays for the Super Bowl in Indy, the town to which their beloved Colts were moved in the 80's by the Irsay family. Nothing like ten tons of irony for the Baltimore football fans.

Not sure how the games will actually play out, but I am predicting a San Francisco-Baltimore Super Bowl.

Thoughts?
