Super Bowl link dump

For the rest of my life I will never, ever get tired of watching this play.

Go to for more video highlights.

New England Patriots' fans everywhere are stunned today. ESPN's Bill Simmons offers up a pretty typical reaction. Over at Pats Pulpit they are referring to last night's defeat as 'Ultimate Humble Pie.'

Maybe the most surprising thing about Sunday's outcome was that despite the Pats' 18-game win streak, the Giants, with their modest three-game winning streak in the playoffs heading into the Super Bowl, played like they were the hotter team. To quote the NFL's rather lame Super Bowl XLII catch-phrase, they wanted it more. They out-hit the Patriots, they out-hustled them, they out-played them at every key moment of the game.

No matter how you look at it, the Super Bowl was a great show. And it was the most watched game in Super Bowl history.

The only bad news of the day for Giants' fans is that Steve Spagnuolo will interview with Washington on Tuesday for their vacant head coaching job.

Here is a list of 10 places the Patriots can place blame.
