Longtime readers know I’m a die hard Giants fan. I figured they would be lucky to win 8 games this season, so I’m in complete but very pleasant shock that they’re headed to the Superbowl. The last two weeks have featured two of my all-time favorite Giants games, rivaling only their Superbowl wins and their ’90 NFC championship upset of San Francisco. Both games have been down to the wire knuckle biting finishes, with me pacing back and forth in front of my TV, cursing the miscues (god help tynes if he had not redeemed himself in overtime after missing that field goal at the end of regulation). I also find it especially poetic that the game was basically decided by a Farve interception. I love Farve…just not when he’s facing the Giants.
Anyway, hats off to the Giants for a fantastic season. I don’t think they have a shot at beating New England, but I do hope they play a competitive game. Besides, I didn’t think they could beat the Cowboys or Green Bay either, and I was even worried about the Tampa Bay game, so…who knows 😉
