Super Bowl XLVI

The New York Giants beat the New England Patriots 21-17 at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana last night.

Here are my thoughts of the game...

Early on in the game it appeared in would be the Giant's ball game. Giants' Eli Manning proved the he truly among the elite quarterbacks scoring a touchdown to WR Victor Cruz.

During the second quarter the Patriots got fired up, sacked Eli Manning twice and scored a touchdown from a pass from QB Tom Brady to WR Danny Woodhead. Halftime score was 10-9

Halftime show featured Madonna. I don't care for her music, but I'll admit for a 53 year old woman, she still can put on some nice dance moves. Then the controversy over M.I.A.'s giving the bird during the show is quite ludicrous. C'mon now, do we have to go through another wardrobe malfunction fiasco like we did in 2004? This a family show folks, leave the obscenities a real concert. No wonder why the NFL hires classic rock bands for the halftime entertainment. It would suit me just fine anyways...

Second half of the game the Patriots started strong with a 12 yard touchdown from Brady to Aaron Hernandez. A pair of field goals from the Giants kept the score close.

The final score of the game came at less than two minutes left. New York's RB Ahmad Bradshaw ran in a 6 yard touchdown.

Try as he might, with 57 seconds left to play, Tom Brady just couldn't win the game for New England. The final score-21-17.

Oh yeah, I thought the best commercials were the Coke Cola polar bears...
