    So who do you think will take it tonight? The Patriots or The Giants?
    It's reminding us of those Red Sox vs Yankees match ups in baseball.

    Just for them to have a perfect season, go Pats! They're heavily favored anyway.

    Patriots don't have a running game, and they have trouble with strong pass-rush team - they almost lost in Baltimore and NY in regular season. The Giants should be able to gvie the Patriots another close game, or even an upset.

    So far the Patriots is leading.. i think they are going to win. The Giants seems can't get thru Patriot's defence.

    Having not lost all season and out scored every team, the Patriots look like winning, but the Giants can stop their running game.

    Last score was Patriots 7 Giants 3.

    Giants might take it. Unless Patriots will take a field goal and send it to Overtime!

    It didn't get exciting til the last quarter...but congrats..

    :p..tell me about it as i fell asleep, literally, at halftime only to wake up when Plaxico made the go-ahead touchdown...:cool:
    ..whoah, i didn't know ants is an American football fan..Did they broadcast the Superbowl in M'sia??..:p ;):cool:
    :p..well, they use a bit of "kicking" in American football (for kickoff, on-side kick, punting and field goal attempt)..so, yeah, there's a bit of 'football' in there..;):cool:
    ..it was an awesome game, indeed, and who woulda thunk it would be a low scoring affair!:cool:..The G-men's D came through, again (just like they did during their previous Superbowl titles) and had some luck plays on offense (for one, i thought the football hit the ground when Tyree made the leaping, tumbling catch during the 4th quarter drive)...oh well, a bit tough luck for the Pats but that's just the way it goes..Actually the Giants is my fave football team (well, been a fan of them since the Phil Simms era)..So, yeah, Go Big Blue & Go G-men!:):cool:

    funny that in my household, Janet decides to stay home and watch the superbowl while i brought Brandon out to play. it was great, the San Jose Children's Museum was relatively empty for a Sunday afternoon and Brandon had a lot of fun running around playing with all the exhibits.

    Hmm..

    :p..i guess all the folks were glued in front of their TVs, heh??..
    Yeah, last yr and the previous yr, i didn't follow the SB like this yr. But, yeah, i guess the hype was the reason behind it (best team this season going for history against an underdog team going for the big upset). Even before the game started, as i was shopping at a supermarket, there was quite a crowd doing some pre-game shopping for the snacks/foods.:p
    But, Janet stayed home to watch some football??..Since when is she a football mania??..:);)..Hmm, i'm sure if the 49ers or Raiders were in the Superbowl, you would be staying home watching it, wouldn't you??..:);) :cool:

    nah. i wouldn't care less regardless of who's playing.

    every year i take advantage of the smaller crowd and either go play some badminton or go do something else.
