Wow. Did that just happen? Did the New York Giants just get back into the Superbowl? I have not been this happy in a long time. As a student at school up in Boston it was crazy to see these two teams, the New England Patriots and the New York Football Giants, collide in a Superbowl rematch, of without a doubt the best Superbowl of my life.
I watched the Patriots game with all of my Patriot fan friends. That was one hell of a game. I did not have a favorite in the game, I just wanted to watch a good game. Was nice to see Tom Brady get in Ray Lewis' face, thought it was a bit aggressive and was surprised Ray Lewis didn't make him pay for that. Rollercoaster of emotion in that room, but when the Patriots won, my dorm seemed to explode...people were going nuts in the hallways.
Watching the Giants game I was one of two people rooting for the Giants, since, and I quote my Patriot fan friend, "I want the 49ers to win because I am scared s***less of the Giants!" I was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole game. In overtime when Jaquan Williams popped that ball out, I lost it my one fellow Giants fan and I were jumping up and down hugging and screaming for joy. And then when Tynes sent us to the Superbowl for the second time in his career in OT I almost cried of joy.
We are going to Indy. If you told me before the season after losing several starters that we would be going to the Superbowl I probably would have given you the finger and said yeah and I bet we are also going to drop both games to the Washington Redskins. I do not think this is the same team that dropped 2 to the Deadskins and another against the Seahawks. I feel the moral victory that we had against Aaron Rodgers baptized this team, since that game the Giants are seven and one. We found our groove again. The defense has come together and so has the run game which has taken pressure off of Eli.
This game is what the fans wanted to see. The Giants and the Patriots in a Superbowl rematch in the Superbowl!
All of us here at Big Blue View know what it means--another chance for the GMen to send Tom Brady home to his amazing and absolutely beautiful wife Gisele Bundchen, without a new ring, and with a few bruises complements of the monster that is Jason Pierre Paul and the Optimus Prime facemask wearing Justin Tuck and the gladiator facemask wearing Chris Canty. Eli, Nicks, and Cruz will abuse the Patriots secondary. It will be fun. I fully intend to take a bus back to NYC for this year's Superbowl parade.
