San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh is taking his team's 34-31 Super Bowl loss to the Baltimore Ravens hard.
He raised several questions about calls and non-calls made by the officials, but said ``We want to handle this with class and grace.
``Had several opportunities in the game. Didn't play our best game. Ravens made a lot of plays,'' he said. ``Our guys battled back to get back in it. We competed and battled to win.''

OWINGS MILLS – As if wearing a Yoda costume to his Wednesday media session wasn’t enough, Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. had a retort for Dolphins players who complained about the condition of the grass field at M&T Bank Stadium.
“Sounds like Miami was complaining about it, so you want to know what the players think on the Ravens” said Smith. “Since Miami got their ass whupped (38-6), of course they’re going to complain about it. But it looked pretty good for us.
“And I’ve been in Miami. They shouldn’t be barking when they just started putting grass on half of the field, when they had the dirt and the baseball. Beggars, again, can’t be choosy.”
Sunday's game is over, but Smith is still dishing out punishment to the Dolphins.

Steve Smith Sr. is a known funny guy, but he took things to another level while addressing the media Wednesday.
Smith showed up wearing a Yoda costume.
"At the holiday helper event, they had it," Smith said. "It’s been a few decades since I wore a onesie. I tried it on. I bought it. So I got to use it. It was raining yesterday, kind of gloom and doom. I try not to waste money."
Smith was also seen wearing the costume earlier this week in a department store.
Maybe Smith is a huge Star Wars fan. Or maybe he's been doing this for no reason at all. Either way, it's kind of awesome.
