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.
Tough loss for the cheaters.
Giants win! 17-14
Drudge can’t be fired, LOL.
“Tough loss for the cheaters.”
Arlen, is that you?
With all due regards Senator, don’t you have better things to hold hearings on?
Psychic or not, the Giants just won.
YEE-HAW!! Brady: LOSER!
Plaxico Burress MVP!!!
“A perfect end to the Pats season!”
Ouch and touche’, shout it loud and shout it often.
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
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.
[cue Sacha Baron-Cohen]
“All hail...the New York Giants!”
Belichick got caught cheating twice and ran off the field before the game was over. What class.
did the announcers mention the no handshake at all or just the cheater running off the field early?
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,
The New York* Giants
*—Actually Do Not Play Home Games In New York
Exactly—I said when that happened, “Now, what will people
say if we lose by 3 points?”
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.
I'm glad he lost.
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.
Sounds like sour grapes to me!
NEW YORK GIANTS ARE THE CHAMPIONS!
YEAH MATT DRUDGE!
“Taking the Super Bowl lead” is not the same as “winning the Super Bowl.” It seems like a correct headline to me.
“An in another major upset, Mitt Romney, the underdog, has won the GOP Nomination defeating front-runner John McCain”
Chalk this up as just one more act by an ignorant coach. He’s the main reason I don’t like my local team.
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.
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.
“Taking the Super Bowl lead is not the same as winning the Super Bowl. It seems like a correct headline to me.”
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.
The Giants aren’t perfect. They had loses this season. Again, the headline was correct. At least as you are presenting it here.
Nope, not anymore. They play at Ford Field in Detroit, having moved out of the old Pontiac Silverdome.
Wanna buy a dome, cheap?
I took that as the “Perfect” Patriots versus the “Not Perfect” Giants. The Not Perfect Giants took the Super Bowl lead.
Always was; they didn't cheat.
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.
That is a great point.
They probably had to move because the weight of all the championship banners was making it unsafe.
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.
From your lips to God’s ears.
would that be a collectors item?
