i, like most of football-loving america and other commercial watching people, watched the super bowl. i was rooting for the giants to win and felt that they had a good shot at it. the game was a low scoring one and i wasn’t sure if the giants could pull it off.
late in the fourth quarter, the game was on the line. eli manning was forced to lead a come-from-behind drive with about two and half minutes left. eli manning. two minute drill? no way, i thought. but there was still hope.
this was probably one of the best super bowls i’ve watched in recent history. jen, christi, and i were watching it and after the giants won, i looked over to jen to see that she was actually tearing up. her mighty patriots had fallen and she was taking it a lot harder than i expected.
all in all, it was a great game and i’m glad that it was, though it was unexpected to be this good to watch.
