Super Bowl 42

I have never enjoyed a football game more. I was absolutely rooting for the Giants and hating the Patriots. I loved watching the Giants defense achieve the impossible and make Tom Brady look like a football player rather than a demigod. I hooted for Eli Manning who played MVP ball after a season of being written off and dissed by sportswriters in NY and elsewhere. And when Eli Manning ducked multiple tackles and threw the ball down field into the hands of David Tyree who simply would not let the football go, I howled and hollered so much that I knew I wouldn't be able to talk for a couple of days.

As a Philadelphia resident and Eagles fan, I could not have imagined myself loving on the Giants. But they were playing the Patriots. I have objected to all the Massachusetts teams since I went to college in MA. The Patriots, however, are my least favorite. While their talent is unquestionable, the team and the coach have an objectionable air about them. This nastiness reached its apex early in the season when they were caught taping the other team's signals. It just made you wonder what they could have been thinking. I guess it's not enough to put together the number 1 offense and the number 4 defense in the league. You need to cheat too?

My sense of justice is now gratified. The gifted cheaters were beaten. God don't like ugly. Their perfect season went up in smoke. And in the process we witnessed the most interesting Super Bowl in recent memory and the most watched ever.

Go Giants! Thanks for a rousing good time.

i, too, am glad to see the giants win (although eli is certainly not my favorite manning). tom brady is an excellent quarterback, but the early season cheating scandal left a very bad taste in my mouth for the whole organization (but i do like seau and welker). it should be interesting to see what happens this off season with retirements and trades. this is the first year that i really got into football...probably because i always rooted for the bengals to lose to purposefully agitate my co-workers. like i kept telling them about the piss poor bengals record -- at least their record was better than miami's. my football prayer for next season is that mcnabb remain healthy ALL season!!! boo hiss to the season being over; i guess i will have to watch the boring NBA now...

oh yeah...i have a secret crush on reggie bush, but that's mostly due to the way he fills out a uniform. i'm going to go repent now for those thoughts!
