I don't think many people picked the Giants to win it all back when the 2007 football season started. Furthermore, the G-Men were underdogs to the Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers (sorry Ian), and New England Patriots throughout the post-season. While it may seem like a Sports Illustrated cliché, the New York Giants certainly had an improbable season, particularly in the playoffs.
Who would've thought that little Eli Manning and his constantly perplexed face could pull off an upset against the undefeated New England Patriots in the Super Bowl? Also, saving the best for last, the play that Manning, halfway on the ground, escaped four or five New England defenders and launched a pass to David Tyree (of all people, who happened to attend my alma mater) who ended up making a circus catch. Stuff like this could not have been written any better! I am in awe. I am flabbergasted. I am overjoyed. Giant fan or not, this Super Bowl was one of the most memorable ever.
No, I like women.
