Oh my that made me laugh. I guess I can go to bed now too, knowing that my son has a cold and I might not get a damn minute of sleep tonight.

Even better was the cutaway to Jeremy Shockey realizing he was now trade bait.

It was a great game, all around. It's really nice to be able to say that the Giants won and not that the Pats lost. The Pats got beaten and that's extremely satisfying.

I dont' really follow football, or watch it. I turned on the game due to there not being much else on. Figured I would watch the commercials at least. I ended up being totally into the game and found myself cheering when the giants scored the TD after the helmet catch.

Nice game

This was an awesome game. It was the best Super Bowl since at least 2001, maybe even longer. I think Justin Tuck should have got MVP (2 sacks, 6 tackles, and a forced fumble, part of a defense that held the Patriots to 14 points), but Eli wasn't the worst choice.

I agree. The defense was key there and generally gets overlooked for MVP awards.

8 players have won Super Bowl MVPs playing defence (1 special teams), and one of those 8 played on the losing team. I'd make it a challenge, but Google just sucks the fun out of such adventures (not to mention that it's my data source as well).

I said "generally" overlooked. Not always overlooked. I should also note that it was my opinion that the Giants defense may have been overlooked in this case.

8 out of 42 Superbowls, but it's still my opinion that they are "generally' overlooked. Sorry I did not clarify that for ya

Agreed. All I was looking to do was to give Google a traffic spike it never knew existed.
