Did you watch today's Super Bowl 42 between the New England Patriots and the New York Giants? If not, you missed the greatest upset in not only Super Bowl history but in the history of the NFL championships.
Improbably, the Giants beat the undefeated, 18-0 Patriots, 17-14 literally in the last minute.
Giants quaterback Eli Manning, brother of Indianapolis Colts QB Peyton Manning and son of former New Orleans Saints QB Archie Manning threw a 13-yard touchdown to Plaxico Buress with 35 seconds left in regulation.
The Patriots, led by scumbag quaterback Tom Brady,* tried to desperatly get into field position to try for a field goal attempt to tie the game and send it into overtime. But, it did not happen. And the Giants were giant killers being 12 point underdogs to the undefeated Patriots.
It is truly amazing. the ramifications will be written about in our lifetimes and beyond. It tops the New York Jets defeating the then Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl 3. I can not think of anything that tops this in the history of the NFL.
It was wonderful and I a glad that I changed my mind and did watch the game.
For it was one for the ages.
