Posted on 02/05/2012 8:15:19 AM PST by doug from upland
Okay, comments and predictions here.
(Excerpt) Read more at espn.go.com ...
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.
Giants by 7.
If you support the Patriots you’re in the bag for Romney?
If you support the Giants you’re in the bag for Christie...? Thanks for setting that up....
I’m in the stadium working.
The owners of the Giants are Republican donors and so is the manning family.
Meanwhile, some might enjoy passing the time with:
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.
The team with the least points loses the game...
The team with the least points loses the game...
From Gisele Bundchen, as reported by the NY Post:
My sweet friends and family,
This sunday will be a really important day in my husbands 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 :)
.... and if you're from California you must support SanFran Nan and the 49'ers.
Just trying to figure out the Stasi around here.
Take New England minus the 3 points and take the OVER 55.
Make some real $$$$$$$$
You saw it here!!!
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.
Giants 34-21...Hey I'm an NFC guy!
And NY brought us Hillary Clinton.
Got no dog in the fight this year. The Superbowl might be more enjoyable this way -
There’s a Super Bowl today?
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.
see my tagline
I predict I'll be watching something else.
Probably Pawn Stars or something.
Question should be Will Madonna outdo Janet Jackson in non appropriate performance
Yes...that IS a shame. I will be one of the few in New England not watching this evening...
We love Eli! Giants by 10.
My kids and I are much more excited about Puppy Bowl XIII.
I’ll be cheering for the Giants in the Super Bowl.
I like Brady but the Giants defense wins this game.
Coughlin is a Syracuse Grad....same backfield with Larry Csonka and Floyd Little.
As a SU grad,I rarely pick against Orange alumni..
Giants 23 Pats 16
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.
Patriots all the way!
I’ll be extremely miserable if they don’t, so you all better root for the Pats or else......... Yeah! Not pretty!
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".
Same here. I'll definitely be doing something else....
Liberal spawn, LOL.
How come THESE one percenters never get dumped on by the Occupy crowd?
(Hope these are right)

Giants defense gets to Brady = Giants win
Giants defense doesn’t get to Brady = Giants lose
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.
Thanks. That’s good to know.
My prediction. Giants defense prevails. Giants win 23-20
Geez, what a bimbo... A beautiful one at that
Brady’s life must suck...mutli millionare sports star and gets to go home to a supermodel
Makes me want to root for the G man even more
