Giants Crowned Super Bowl XLII Champions

The New York Giants stunned the world tonight, defeating the heavily favored New England Patriots 17-14 in Super Bowl XLII. Tom Brady faced relentless pressure from the Giants' front 7 and Eli Manning didn't play like the usual Eli Manning we all know and laugh at. For once, Eli didn't have "deer in the headlights" look. Give credit to Giants wideout David Tyree for making one of the best catches in Super Bowl history to keep the Giants' winninig drive alive. This was probably the first and last time I ever cheer for the Giants. What brought me much more joy was the look of dejection on Brady's face after the game. Here are a few choice images from tonight's game.

No tuck rule this time, asshole...

Badass catch by Tyree.

I wouldn't doubt if the '72 Miami Dolphins get together every year from now on January 3: Eli Manning's birthday. They will sacrifice a goat in honor of the younger Manning brother and drink to his health.

Congrats to former USC receiver Steve Smith on a solid performance. Other than an early tip that led to an interception, Smith made some key receptions and had some crucual catches on the winning drive.
