Its always great to see the underdogs win, and this win was more special cuz they will always be remembered as the team that stopped perfection, a true Cinderella story.
well, i am excited for the giants
as a colts fan, i naturally had to root for the other manning. i always like the underdog upset anyway. this was a much better game than i had imagined. the giants' defense really deserves a round of applause. that's where the game was won. nice job, guys
side note: 100th post!
edit: sorry rb too drunk to see sports section
Well I watched it too on french televisoon
and I must say I liked the game because it was very strategic (great defense game by the giants) and there was a lot tension
Of course I am more neutral than americans since they are more into this sport (Must say I like it)
and I was for the underdog: ny giants and I cheered when that last touchdown was made - the QB manning was great in that last +2 minutes of the last time
I'm not into rooting for a NY team in any scenario, but I must say that regardless of who was playing the Patriots this year, I wanted them to lose. Great game, great plays. The Bowl was worth watching this year. Unlike last year, lol.
Congrats Giants fans. Things were too good for too long for us NE sports fans...
I'm actually kind of getting a kick out of seeing everyone moping around. It's like they've forgoten Boston's long and proud history of choking in the big game (more red sox than pats I guess, but they were terrible for years). Sports talk radio is like listening to grief counseling...it's rediculous. Don't get me wrong, I wanted them to win (just by less than 12 points).

Moping around seems like the appropriate response to going 18-1 and losing to 12 point underdogs.
Yeah, I don't disagree with you there. It sucks they lost, but it was still a fun season and I'll take 18-1 over, let's say.............5-11 every time.

I was so happy that the Pats lost.
I couldn't give two shits that the Giants won (Good for them btw). I was just so fucking pumped up to see the shittiest organization in all of the NFL lose. It was pure awesome and epic.
I was happy that the Patriots lost, too.
I'm a bit biased towards the Manning boys, so it was just good to see Brady fall in consecutive years to them - but at the same time, it's crazy that the last loss Brady suffered before Super Bowl XLII was to Peyton in the AFC Championship game the year before. The Patriots put up one of the most dominating performances in any regular season ever, and they choked in the end. I think that's going to really besmirch their legacy.
But I was really glad for the Giants. Quite a story they have there to tell. It was that Eli to Tyree catch that basically won the game for them, I think, besides the superb defensive effort they put forth.
So it looks like the Bills will be playing a regular season game in Toronto starting next year. Are people in Canada embracing this? Or do they only care about the CFL?
Depends where in Canada. Out West, they might care in the province of British-Columbia. In Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba is probably irrelevant. Most them like their local produce, ie. CFL. Ontario cares a lot. They say that about half the people who go to the Buffalo games are from somewhere in Ontario. Then they said the games in Toronto would be giving them twice the profit that they would be getting if the game was held in Buffalo. As for Quebec, Quebec cares. The NFL is already pretty popular here, and Quebec has one of the best (If not the best) Football Programs at L'université de Laval in all of Canada. As for the Eastern Provinces (New Brunswick, Nova Scota, Newfoundland & PEI), I'm not sure they care a whole 'lot, but I don't know to be honest.
But overall the biggest concern is the health of the CFL. A lot of people think that the CFL is going to die from this. I'm not really one of those people, though. There's plenty of things the CFL can do to avoid getting crushed by the NFL. Instead of starting the season in early June, start in early May, or even late April.
In any case, let's see what happens.
