“All Hail The New York Giants!”


Now who is the the best quarterback in the Manning family? Eli!!

He engineered a

game winning, TD drive to put them up 21-17 with 57 seconds over Brady and company.

It was almost a repeat drive of the last time these two teams met in the Super Bowl. That game, 4 years ago, Eli drove 88 yards to score the game winning TD. To cap off that drive was the impossible catch by David Tyree.

But there is no need to live in the past any more for Giants fans. Ahmad Bradshaw’s 6 yard TD put the Giants ahead of the Pats with 57 seconds left and it set up what looked like a incredibly exciting minute.

With 5 seconds left the legendary Patriots QB threw one last, desperate, heave to the end zone that was almost tipped and caught for a TD but fell harmlessly to the turf.

Eli’s MVP performance not only got him a nice car, but the rightful title of an elite quarterback. It also helps to beat your older brother in rings in the house that Payton built.

I’ve alway been an Eli fan and always thought he was an elite QB and the smartest QB in the sport. This only proves my point. With this ring, he now has added to a career built on postseason performances and more importantly, he is now beating his older brother in Championship titles.


Super Bowl Sunday

Have you ever wondered how much money people spend on this Sunday alone?

The 24 hour count down to the Super Bowl is underway and I can hardly wait.

With all the drinks, chips, a flat screen, and a bunch of friends there is nothing quite like Super Bowl Sunday.

It’s not just normal Sunday that you wake up on and go to church like every other week. There are no 1 or 4 p.m. NFL games on to watch throughout the day. Just hours of pre-game analysis of the big game on later tonight.

The Super Bowl has been deciding the National Football League’s champ since the Green Bay Packers won Super Bowl I in 1967.

When it comes to this kind of event, only one other surpasses it when it comes to the amount of food that is consumed by Americans on this particular Sunday. Thanksgiving.

On average, about 15,000 tons of chips and 4,000 tons of popcorn (1 ton in my house alone) is eaten. Over $55 million was expected to be spent on food alone this week and $11.8 million in beer. 30.4 million pounds of snack food will be confirmed tonight (that is twice the daily average of Americans). That’s just food!

Even if you aren’t a football fan you can still watch it for the music performance at halftime and the commercials. Because of how big the venue and it’s consistent high numbers in viewers, the Super Bowl has become one of the biggest stage for artists and advertisements. From Michael Jackson to the Black Eye Peas and Slash, the stage at half time has seen many great artists. This year Madonna will take the big stage with the Cirque du Soleil and Nicki Minaj.

An average advertisement during the Super Bowl is $2,900,000. Because of the size of viewers, the ad reaches over 80 to 90 million people so it may just be worth the cost.

Because it is on a Sunday, Americans have to go to work the next day. So some call in “sick”. In fact, 6% do.

So while you are watching the Super Bowl with your food, beer and friends, ask yourself if it gets any better that that.

A Rematch for the Ages


The last time the New England Patriots meet the New York Giants in the Super Bowl, It was nothing but exciting. A last minute drive engineered by Eli Manning to derail the undefeated Patriots was a drive of the ages. An outstanding helmet catch by David Tyree and a touchdown catch to win the game was simply amazing.

Both team won their divisional championship games in nail biting fashion. The Pats won after Ravins kicker Cundiff missed a 32 yard field goal that would have tied the game and sent it into overtime.

The Giants won by a field goal over the 49ers in overtime. Victor Cruz had 145 yards for 10 receptions.

If this Super Bowl is as good as last time these to teams met, it won’t disappoint.
