who needs history?

I must admit I was not a previous fan of the New York Giants or the New England Patriots, but after listening to various analysis and commentating, I chose to root for the Giants to win the Superbowl.

You see my entire life, athletically, probably romatically, has been steeped in the theme of the Underdog.  A part of my soul longs for the Underdog to rise high above expectation and find victory over the Favored.

So thank you to the writer of the Ugly Duckling and the flick The Truth About Cats and Dogs. Here's Emilio Estevez and his Mighty Ducks!  A glass raised to Elizabeth Bennett!!!!

And tonight, thank you to Eli Manning and his Giants.

Viva la Upset!!!!!
