It’s great to be called Patriots, but they are from the place of Kennedy, Kerry, and Barney. And NY brought us Hillary Clinton. It is a shame that they can’t both lose.

If you support the Patriots you’re in the bag for Romney?

The owners of the Giants are Republican donors and so is the manning family.

Meanwhile, some might enjoy passing the time with:
http://www.archive.org/details/1958NflChampionship
1958 NFL championship game.
Quite a contrast to the “pink shoes NFL” Super Bowl...

Full audio with only about a quarter of the game on video, rest is appropriate filler from the time.
But it does have video of the big plays and all of the exciting finish.

From Gisele Bundchen, as reported by the NY Post:

“My sweet friends and family,

This sunday will be a really important day in my husband’s life. He and his team worked so hard to get to this point and now they need us more than ever to send them positive energy so they can fulfill their dream of winning this super bowl . . .

So I kindly ask all of you to join me on this positive chain and pray for him, so he can feel confident, healthy and strong. Envision him happy and fulfilled experiencing with his team a victory this sunday.

Thank you for your love and support. Love, G :)”

I'm from MA and am a Pats fan.

I still think that the results will ride on the Pats defense. NE's defense will give up some big plays. That said, I think the Giants will win. They know exactly how to disrupt Brady's game. He will be as effective as the last time he met the Giants in the Superbowl...and the two losses to the Giants this year.

The one big variable will be Brady. If he can have his A-game on the field, the Pats may be able to eek out a win. Whoever has the ball last will win this one.

Ticket prices are tapering off as kickoff approaches, not down to face value yet but getting there.

Stubhub as 900 left.

And NY brought us Hillary Clinton.


Hillary is from Chicago. She performed her capetbagging act in NY. Barney is from Bayonne, NJ,a blue-collar town. He didn’t fit well there.

I think the team most closely associated with Baraq is the Steelers where the owner contributed so much to the campaign they made him ambassador to Ireland.

Now he’s quitting that job to come back and work for the 2012 campaign.

I think it will be a close game and will go into OT with the Giants winning by a field goal....All will be good as long as you miss the “Gay” Half Time show! Enjoy the game everyone.....

I’m from Mississippi and I’m in the bag for ELI MANNING and the New York Giants. The entire Manning family are held in high esteem in Mississippi. Eli’s residence is in Oxford. GO GIANTS, GO ELI.

From what I’ve heard here in Indy, the performance is supposed to be pretty low key in that department.

She was certainly a mediocre choice in the first place, but the NFL makes these calls, not the local committee.

I’m sure that when the Patroits come up to bat, they’ll strike the puck with their racket and score a try or two.

Thinking in terms of degrees of separation, the Giants and the Steelers are intimately associated with one another. The Mara family and the Rooney family are old guard NFL owners. Their families have intermarried. This is evidenced by Rooney Mara, the lead actress in "The Girl with the Green Tatoo".

Discussion thread? Discussion? There is no discussion. Giants are going to make Brady play the entire game horizontal and make him cry like Barney Frank getting arse raped by a horse.
