Late last week, news broke about Major League Baseball investigating what ESPN called, "multiple wellness clinics in South Florida, as well as individuals with potential ties to players." The revelations made by the Miami New Times and Major League Baseball are both startling and disappointing at the same time.
We have finally reached the final week of the 2012-13 NFL Season, as we continue our countdown to Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans. This game will continue to be broken down and analyzed with the same angles in mind: the Harbaugh brothers coaching against each other, the special skill-set of San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the pending retirement of Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis. However, in this article I will attempt to present a different angle to view this Sunday's game from: that the Baltimore Ravens are this year's version of a "team of destiny" and will win Super Bowl XLVII, just like the 2011 New York Giants.

The star quarterback of the New England Patriots has been fined $10,000 for making questionable contact with Baltimore Ravens cornerback Ed Reed on a slide late in the first half last Sunday.
About ten years ago, Jon Gruden earned some revenge, when he led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to an emphatic 48-21 win over his former team in Super Bowl 37, the Oakland Raiders. Ever since that night, both teams have fallen back into a state of irrelevancy and that game is mostly remembered for Rich Gannon's pathetic performance with five interceptions, at least until the last few days.
We are officially on the two-week road to the Super Bowl, as the 49ers defeated the Falcons and the Ravens beat the Patriots yesterday. However, following his team's loss in the AFC Championship, Patriots coach Bill Belichick refused to give an interview to Steve Tasker of CBS...
Over the last seven days, the two stories dominating the sports landscape were Lance Armstrong's "admission" to using performance-enhancing drugs during his cycling career and the revelation of Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o having a fake girlfriend...
