Congrats to the Football Giants

I'm not a Giants fan, but I have become a tremendous Patriots hater over the past 4 months. They were painted by the sports pundits as this unstoppable juggernaut. It was great watching the under-appreciated Giants win.
I'm a little worried about the Patriots fans around here now and how they're going to react to the loss. It was a bit like talking to cult members--"The Patriots are the best team EVER," "Tom Brady is the best quarterback EVER," "Randy Moss is the best receiver EVER." Just like Jonestown. These folks are going to take it hard.
My wife and kids stayed up to watch the game. They're in Germany, so the game didn't even start until after midnight, ending at just after 3 a.m. My wife and oldest son managed to stay up. My other children didn't. Arlene said Isabella woke up at the end and saw Eli Manning getting the MVP award. She smiled at my wife and said, "Oh, I love him." He's a little old for you Isabella (she's 5).

Amazing game! I LOVE a good football game and that was one of the best I have seen in a long time. Best Super Bowl ever. I am not a fan of either team per se, but it was interesting seeing the clip of Tom Brady at his press conference earlier feeling insulted that one of the Giants said they would win 23 - 17 and Brady was offended that they thought the Pats would only score 17 points. And they only scored 14. Gotta love that.

Yeah, he's a little old, but Isabella could do a lot worse.
