New York Giants Win Superbowl XLII
Eli Manning has led the Giants to what the Kansas City Star calls "among the greatest upsets in the history of professional team sports." Wide receiver David Tyree made the catch of the century and Plaxico Burress caught a 13-yard touchdown pass. I'm not a regular football fan, but this game's edge-of-the-seat, spectacular fourth quarter (at least for us New Yorkers) got me interested.
Now, might some other folks in New York throw some upset passes? How about Eliot Spitzer eliminating New York State's income tax? How about a 20% across the board reduction in Albany's general fund budget next year? How about a real celebration?
