XLII- A Good Win for Sports
Yeah. Giants. Super Bowl XLII.
Sorry Pats, the wildcard team beat you guys (who were undefeated). The Cinderella story of the century so far.
With the not-so-hot sports of The Big City: New York Knicks franchise in shambles, the hyped up but failure of the New York Yankees, and the New York Rangers not doing much since a guy named Wayne left with nothing gained for the organization, the big Superbowl win for the New York Giants is good for New York sports. More importantly, it is good for American sports in general. Despite what the experts were saying, the fans still rallied behind the underdogs.
And damn, that was an exceptional defensive showcase. Boy, that scramble by Eli blew my mind when he escaped the sack and threw it for the huge gain. And wow, that last sack (the best of five sacks) on Tom Brady sent a message to the audience. New York was here to play and to win.
Good win Giants, stand tall. And we must remember; there is no such thing as perfection.
To dream is to fly.

As long as war is looked upon as wicked, it will always have its fascination. When it is looked upon as vulgar, it will cease to be popular.
