VANITY - Drudge is Psychic, calls Superbowl before it is over?
Vanity ^ | 3 Feb 08 | Tim Wohlford

Posted on 02/03/2008 7:02:59 PM PST by TWohlford

Drudge was flashing "NOT PERFECT NY GIANTS TAKE SUPER BOWL LEAD" after the Giants scored their touchdown with less than a minute ago.

Granted, it might've been over by then, but either 1) Drudge is a psychic, or 2) there is a 10-minute delay in broadcasting that Drudge doesn't have, or 3) Drudge's staff simply exercised bad judgment.

Arlen, is that you?

With all due regards Senator, don’t you have better things to hold hearings on?

New England deserved to lose by 3 points

for not taking the 48 yd fg attempt on 4th down

in a calm-wind dome stadium

and on

4th and THIRTEEN, not one yd but THIRTEEN.

And Belichek shows his “class”. Runs off the field into the locker room before the last play is run.

I hope he crys himself to sleep tonight, cheater.

I won’t lie. I’d liked to have seen the Pats run the table. That said, those were two good teams out there, and New York toughed it out.

The NFL says there was nothing to the second “cheating” charge.

Let’s hear it for the best NFL team in New York.
The Buffalo Bills!

Yes..because they actually PLAY in New York. I said “in
New York”. The Jets and Giants play in Jersey. Yeah,
I’m nitpicking.

The New York* Giants

I thought he had shaken his hand and said a few words, then left the field so the Giants could have the field to themselves in order to celebrate.

I’m not Arlen. I’m a nuetral observer from the west coast, someone without a dog in the fight. The Pats got caught cheating and thus are cheaters. Is that worth holding hearings? Probably not. But that was not my decision.

Apparently they had no faith in their kicker.

Somehow, the Giants win tonight convinces me even more that the other underdog in this race is gonna win as well.

It ain’t over till it’s over! Once again, the press got it wrong.

“Taking the Super Bowl lead” is not the same as “winning the Super Bowl.” It seems like a correct headline to me.

True, but if there were truth in advertising, it would be the Pontiac Lions, the Irving Cowboys, the East Rutherford Giants, the Foxboro Patriots, the soon to be leaving Bills, the can’t fill a stadium even with a playoff team Jaguars, the Miami Morons and the Atlanta Dog Killers.

"NOT PERFECT NY GIANTS TAKE SUPER BOWL LEAD"

Did he post that BEFORE the Giants touchdown?? If not, I don't understand. "The Giants take the lead" means just that. The Giants took the lead. At that point in the game, the Giants were leading the Patriots. There is nothing in that headline implying that the Giants had already won the game.

None of it matters, the New York Giants upset the New England Patriots 17-14, and now all those Patriophiles have to live with those “Perfect Season 19-0” T-shirts they printed up in anticipation of yet another (har har) Super Bowl trophy.

Looks good on ‘em.

18-1, the ‘72 Dolphins place in the history books is secure.

Nope... I posted the headline, which said “Not Perfect” before the line “Take Superbowl Lead”. It was clear that someone at Drudge.com was jumping the gun.

Nope, not anymore. They play at Ford Field in Detroit, having moved out of the old Pontiac Silverdome.

I took that as the “Perfect” Patriots versus the “Not Perfect” Giants. The Not Perfect Giants took the Super Bowl lead.

Where were you watching? I was on the phone with my buddy in Phoenix and his feed was several seconds behind LA.

DirecTV had problems also and had to put up a new channel for fans to tune in.

A little sour grapes perhaps. The least you could do is be more gracious than Belichik. Sore loser couldn’t even wait for the game to be over to leave the field.
