After about a quarter, I said to one of my fellow party-goers "I'm sick of this nailbiter crap every time the Pats are in a Super Bowl - why can't we just win in a blowout for a change?" No response at that point (granted, the person in question I was speaking to was a tad inebriated, but...). Anyhow, other than one blown call (a defensive hands to the face by New York that was missed) and a bad coaching decision (of ours - not going for a very makeable field goal), it was just a terrific blood-and-guts battle. And yet another Manning grew a pair of nuts and pulled the win out. I'm getting sick of it. It was a terrific win by the Giants, a major bummer of a loss by the Patriots, and the Giants definitely earned it.
The only post-mortem I can give right now is congrats to the Dolphins for remaining the lone undefeated team, but Mercury Morris can kiss my butt and go get caught with some celebratory coke again. That's actually the extent of my bitterness.
