I think the Gents are the hot team right, peaking at the perfect time. It should be a good game. Go Giants

JS...when I was a kid up here we only had one tv channel. WCAX - Burlington and they only broadcast the Giant games. The AFL and the Patriots was a second tier level of pro football back then so that's why you have alot of Giant fans in NE.

Another vote for the NY Giants! It does say NY on their helmets doesn't it?
Anyway I always have liked the intensity of Bill Belichik (an ex giant assistant I might add) but the G men are on a roll and gave the Pats the best fight of any team this year.

Should be a great game!

Zero years, actually, since they won the first ever World Series...I've also noticed that the Sox have more World Series championships this century than the Yankees do, despite the Yankees spending upwards of 50% more on payroll.

Patriots bien sur. I like Patriots because of AFC and Flutie. Mr Flutie gave CFL many throws and touchdowns. He made records and grey cup victories. He was so very good. He was a patriot so I like them.

CFL players go to AFC more. I like to watch them sometimes.

Tynes needed more time in CFL to learn to kick more. HAHA giants.

Once you become a fan, you are locked into your team for life. The New England region is thus actually somewhat split on this Superbowl. All of us older than 55 are still Giants fans. The Patriots did not exist when we started to follow professional football. In my case, the Giants used to do their pre-season training at UVM's Centennial Field. When I was a freshman, the BHS band went to NY and played at halftime at the Giants vs. Redskins game at Yankee Stadium. You do not forget HS experiences like that even if most of us are Red Sox fans.

But meanwhile, here's the tally:

Go Giants: 7
Go Pats: 5

No vote from me, I'm one of those "Undecided's" or as the Michigan ballot reads, "Uncommitted". That's true, I haven't been committed...yet!

Giants - 9

Happiness will be skiing at Sunday River Superbowl Sunday morning, picking up Chinese food on the way back in Gorham, NH, (can't remember the name of the place, but it's listed on top 100 Chinese food places in the country, and the food is really great),
and then watching the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS WIN THEIR FOURTH SUPER BOWL IN THE 21st CENTURY!!!!

GO PATS!!!!!!!!!

In the interest of my favorite Pats fan, my dear old Mom, and her blood pressure, I hope it's not a close game. In my own interest, I hope it is. My boss predicts 42-13, Pats. But Eli Manning has shown his Moxie* and I always like to root for the underdog. Such conflicts.

*Moxie (from Tim Sample): "A drink so bad that Mainahs drink it only to prove how tough we are."

I only counted one vote per person and only those who committed one way or the other.

Go Jints!! How can one be a Sox & Giants fan? Blame my dad. All we had growing up were the the big 3 stations (ABC, CBS, NBC). My dad and grandfather taught me, every Sunday watching the Giants in their not-so-heyday, just how much the rest of the NFC East sucks. Dallas, Washington & Philly are warts on a pig's ass (the Yankees suck even more, but I digress). That stuff doesn't just leave you overnight. It's easy to root for the "newbie" Pats the way they've been the last 7 yrs. Other than the Giants I have absolutely no use for NYC. Where we are in CT is the front line for the Boston/New York thing. Guess that explains things my bi-polar sports allegiances.

Don't get me wrong...I like the Pats. Sometimes I wish the Giants were playing someone else besides N.E. so I could ratchet up the angst a little more. I don't expect a blow out, I think it will be close. 5 weeks ago did anyone actually think the Giants would be in the SB? I confess...no. Destiny is a funny thing people. I'll have my 15 yr. old LT jersey on...enjoy the game.

flan, never mind the football game (I think it'll be close. The Pat's defense is showing its age and the Giants scored five tds against them the last time. What will save it for the Pats is that the Giant secondary seems to have trouble handling lots of receivers). But as I say, never mind the game. Isn't that avitar from the Hartford Whalers? Havn't seen that in years. By the way, welcome to the forum.

Yes, it the logo of the mighty Whale (don't make me play "Brass Bonanza" ). I spent a lot of time & $ at the Civic (XL) Center back in the day and I miss hockey terribly. I no longer follow the sport with any real interest.

On to the game...the key is for the Giants NOT to blitz Brady. He's the king of the quick slant & hitting RB's out of the backfield (throw in some draws too) under pressure. Big Blue's front four is formidable and should supply enough pressure on the QB. Despite the injuries, the DB's have played well of late. All out blitzes leave single coverage and Randy Moss & co. can make anyone look bad. Stick to the defensive scheme they've used.

On offense the Giants will swap Jacobs & Bradshaw to give the ground game a different look. The air attack will consist of timing patterns, quick outs & spot throws (sometimes behind the receiver-can't be defended well). Doesn't make for big gains or big yards after the catch, but it keeps Eli confident & mistake free.

What scares me is the Pats haven't played their "A" game in a while. If they do, it will be along day for the Giants. If not, it will be a dogfight and you might just be surprised. Pull up a chair, grab a Long Trail Ale and a supermodel and enjoy the 45 hours of pre-game shows (and the game itself). BTW TP rocks!

I've been a lurker not really an ardent poster. Anyways, gotta get to bed, day trip to Stratton tomorrow (on them...FREE).

I read that NJ will beat MA--at the Indoor Ski Area race(Boston Globe Dec 27, 2007). But MA had a "temporary ski jump" in 1935 in the Boston Garden. I'd say history seems to repeat "Firsts".
