Today, my beloved New York Football Giants take on the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI, a rematch of Super Bowl XVII, in which the Giants destroyed the Pats’ dreams of an undefeated season with a stunning 17-14 victory in what many NFL fans – including myself – deem to be the best Super Bowl ever.
The Giants are underdogs once again, but this time the spread is much tighter, and a lot of the so-called experts and pundits are actually picking the Jints to triumph. I believe Big Blue will stampede to a convincing victory, cementing Eli Manning as the elite quarterback in the NFL – statistics be damned. (Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees piled up a bunch of ultimately meaningless personal numbers this season, and will be taking a break from playing golf to watch the Super Bowl from the stands with all the other
losers also-rans, before crying themselves to sleep, wrapped in their record books.) All Eli does is win.
