This football season has been somewhat painful to watch. The playoffs even more so as the top teams that ought to have knocked the Patriots off kept falling before getting the chance. Between the Cowboys, Packers, and Colts, the Patriots didn't face any of the other three top four teams during the playoffs. On top of that, the Chargers faced the Patriots without their two biggest weapons being at full strength.
Knowing that we'd face the second most obnoxious fan base in sports talking about their two titles in MLB and football back-to-back for the next 9 months if the Giants didn't knock them off, I was rooting hard for the Giants, despite not being a Giants fan.
How nice it is to see this team go on to victory, or more importantly, to see Tom Brady and the Patriots lose. I don't often root for other teams to lose, but in this case, I did. And am I ever glad they won.
In this new world, 14-6 is greater than 18-1. Thank you Eli Manning and Plaxico Burress for a great evening of football!
