Superbowl Sunday: Giants face undefeated Pats

Posted By on February 3, 2008

Tom PettyWhat would a post be on Superbowl Sunday without at least a mention in my blog. Although logic tells me that the undefeated and experienced New England Patriots will win, I’m like 70% of the football fans in this country wanting to see the New York Giants Superbowl champs. The Giants have been an underdog team most of the year and have had most everything tip their way in the second half of the season. As I post during the halftime show, its a much more defensive and slow game than most predicted — New England 7 and New York 3. Speaking of halftime shows, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers was a great choice as they appeal to a wide audience. I’m ready for the second half and waiting for a bit more offense.
EDIT 2/3/2008 10:05PM: A definite nail biter — Giants upset the Pats perfect season by winning Superbowl 42 by a score of 17 – 14 in the final minute. An outstanding second half and most exciting finish.

    I’m with you, and the rest of the nation (outside of the Boston area) in wanting to see the G-men, while not the better team, take the trophy. And we were not disapointed. What a game.

    Let’s hear it also for Tom Petty and the rest of the Heartbreakers. He’s still got it. I’m just wondering if any of those “chippies” dancing around the stage had ever heard of him. Is his appeal that wide? Ah, just the rambling of an old man. Can’t you just picture me shaking my cane at the screen.

  • Yes Tom … I can see it now … not the cane, but enjoying the music. (and you are right … “What a game!”)
