Colin Kaepernick, Joe Flacco

So, you know that humongous sporting event taking place Sunday, the one with the Beyoncé concert and all the commercials?

Super Bowl XLVII, that's the one!

Back in the big game for the first time since 1995, the San Francisco 49ers will face off against the Baltimore Ravens, who last hoisted the Vince Lombardi Trophy in 2000, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

It's gonna be sweaty, it's gonna be intense—the coaches are brothers, for Pete's sake!—and a lot of it, as football games tend to be, is gonna be hot.

So, in honor of hunky opposing quarterbacks Colin Kaepernick, who in only his second year with the 49ers is proving to be that rare kind of QB who can do it all, and Ravens veteran Joe Flacco, oft-unheralded but quietly proficient, let us take a moment to admire more than their athleticism.

You know, like, their abs. And eyes. Arms, too.
