What a tough pill to swallow. The Superbowl was a great show. As predicted the under came in, with a lot of room to spare, and the line actually went down to 53 at kickoff. Unfortunately, the New York Football Giants were crowned champions once again. Eli Manning led a late 4th quarter drive and ended up scoring with 57 seconds remaining on the clock. They timed this perfectly, and 57 seconds was just not enough time for Brady & Co. to score.
Madonna's halftime performance was well-received by the women that I watched the game with, and I honestly did not pay attention to the ads, which were fairly star-studded. The Giants sacked Brady right at the beginning causing a safety, which is extremely rare, and I am sure hurt the Nevada and offshore sportsbooks, who offer odds in the range of 9 to 1.
I would have written a lot more if the Patriots won, but I am still feeling kind of sick from the 12 beers and 20 wings I ate last night. Congrats Giants.
