Eli Manning: Super Bowl MVP

Words I honestly thought would never go together. I'm shocked. The pass to Tyree where he Romo'd his way away from 2 D-Linemen was incredible.

There were plenty of classic Eli terrible passes, and the Patriots dropped like 4 interceptable crappy throws, but the Giants are the champs, and Eli Freaking Manning is going to DisneyWorld. Congratulations. For the first time in 5 years the Lombardi Trophy is back in the NFC, and for the first time in 12 years it's back in the NFC East.

At the end of the day, I'm very happy the Patriots lost. Anything that makes asstard Red Sox fans sad is fantastic with me. I couldn't root for the Giants during the game, but at least Boston lost. I can't wait to read Simmons's column. This was a lot like Texas over USC in the Rose Bowl. Everyone in the media was talking about the Patriots, as they were talking about the Trojans then, as the greatest team of all time, before they had finished the job.

I actually predicted New England would go 18-0 and then lose the Super Bowl, although it should've been to Romo and co. Speaking of which, I have yet to hear anyone blame Gisele for Brady's struggles tonight. Stupid media asstards.

And as always, Belichik, the epitome of class, running off the field instead of shaking Coughlin's hand. You stay classy Belicheat.

In other news: How Bout Them Rangers today, down 3-0 on the road against the #2 team in the conference, win 5-3, friggin' huge.

Pitchers and catchers in 10 days.

The good commercials: The G2 with the Captain, the one with Chris Kattan (glad to see he's alive), the one with Timberlake/Samberg/Romo, Barkley/Wade, bottle opener suck, Cars.com Death Match, and carrier pigeons.

The ones that stood out as stupid: Carlos Mencia (shockingly, he has such a tremendous comedic wit), salesgenie.com. Most of the commercials just weren't that memorable.

And finally, we here at the blog send along our best wishes to Fess (we'll see if he actually reads this thing, wait, does anyone read this thing?), who's going under the knife tomorrow.
