Enjoy it now, Giants fans
Remember what happened last time the Giants were in the Super Bowl?
Yeah. Ravens 34, Giants 7. And that was a Baltimore team that didn't have an offense. One's gotta think that New England, on its quest to piss off the rest of the country and go undefeated, is going to make short work of New York.
Unless Brady gets picked off six times, the defense only goes hard for two downs at a time and a few guys get arrested in Phoenix, this game won't be close.
So enjoy it now, Giants fans. There won't be much to cheer about on Feb. 3.
Archie Manning has it good these days
Fuck. Two kids go to the Super Bowl in back-to-back years? He's like the Father of the Decade. You know Archie lives through his two NFLers, so to see each reach the Super Bowl in consecutive years, he's got to be creaming himself.
In fact, you'd think he's taking frequent trips to sperm banks to get more winners out in the world.
Another reason for Bostonians and New Yorkers to want to jab each other in the eye with a pencil
There doesn't seem to be as strong a Boston-New York hatred in football as there is in baseball. But here we are again: a huge game between the two most obnoxious fan bases in the country. The shit talking will be going on for two weeks while the rest of America just sort of shrugs its shoulders and turns the other way.
The happiest Giant? The long snapper.
The only time the long snapper is mentioned is when he fucks up. And he did. But he (and kicker Lawrence Tynes) righted the ship and got the Giants the win.
Thing is, read just about any recap of the game, and we dare you to find the long snapper's name. We just tried and failed. That's why we're not referring to him by name because we don't know who the fuck he is!
Had the Giants lost in OT after missing the very makeable game-winner in regulation, we bet the long snapper's name would've made most articles. Better believe he's happy in his anonymity.
Joe Buck can lie in the middle of the fucking freeway
We know we rip on Buck a ton, enough to merit his own tag, but c'mon, this was the NFC Championship Game, and a fucking good one at that. And we might as well be watching preseason amateur bowling.
Holy fuck is Buck hard to listen to. We had the game on in the background for a while because we had some work to do. The only way we knew what happened was based on the crowd reaction. That's not right.
Does this get Eli off the hook?
It should. Maybe he's taken too much heat all along. But don't think for a second The Hater Nation will let up. No way.
