Not to mention a terrible waste of a challenge.
Kinda had a feeling it wasn't the Patriots' day when Brady gave the Giants a safety by intentionally grounding the ball in the endzone on their first offensive play.Three different receivers dropping relatively easy passes out of four New England plays late in the fourth (including the first two plays of the final drive)...
It was interesting to note that Raymond Berry, the great Hall of Fame Colts receiver who played in the greatest game ever played in 1958 between the Giants and the Baltimore Colts walked the Lombardi Trophy to the podium.
A tidbit about Berry from wikipedia for the younger crowd:
"During his career, he led the NFL in receptions three times. In his career he only dropped a total of two passes. He was selected to the Pro Bowl six times, from 1957–61 and in 1965.
He also made the all-NFL team from 1958-1960. Berry was considered the very identity of the great Baltimore Colts' teams of the 1950s and 1960s (along with Johnny Unitas, Alan Ameche, Lenny Moore, John Mackey, Gino Marchetti, Art Donovan and Jim Parker). He was famous for his attention to detail and preparation. He and quarterback John Unitas regularly worked after practice and developed the timing and knowledge of each other's abilities that made each more effective. In addition to his great record as a pass receiver, Berry's dedication to his craft is demonstrated by, in a 13-year career, his fumbling the football only once." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raymond_Berry
As the Bible tells us, there were giants upon the earth in those days!
I bleed Giant Blue, but maybe in that context, you all should cut Giselle Bundgen some slack for defending her hubby!
(We brought a memorable Super Bowl party from upstate NY to Christ the Saviour Seminary in Johnstown, PA where my son is a student.When he left in September I jokingly told him his mom and I would meet him there for the Super Bowl! Five of the students are from the metro NY area. It was wonderful fun for the 'Western Pennsylvania Chapter of Expatriate Tri-State Giants Fans' to meet in the Seminary rec room. Take that Steel Curtain! And thank you to the Rector and Dean for their assistance in making it happen!)
