Basketball Aside For A Second: Congrats New York Giants!

Holy COW!

As I'm sure you already know, the Giants defeated the Pats 17-14 in the Super Bowl in one of the craziest, zaniest, Eli-Manning-est games ever. I watched the game with a bunch of Giants fans in New York City and it was nothing short of spectacular. After the G-Men officially won, we all went out onto my apartment terrace to see hundreds of people yelling in happiness and some even shooting fireworks out of their apartments. It was pandemonium. The closest thing I could compare it to is a big city version of that dance the natives do to attract the attention of King Kong.

A huge congrats to the New York Giants and their fans. An "Awwwwww...that suuuucks" with a grin to Tom Brady and Pats fans looking for their 4th Super Bowl and pursuit of an undefeated season. It looks like my Miami Dolphins still have to carry the weight of being the NFL's only undefeated season. Shucks!

With David beating Goliath tonight, we come to a wonderful end to a great NFL season. With this game concluded, America officially turns its collective sports-viewing attention to the NBA and we couldn't be happier. Somewhere David Stern just put on his superhero outfit.
