Another Championship …

Several Civil War bloggers are passionate sports fans.  They know who they are.  Back in 2009 several of those bloggers were calling for their Philadelphia Phillies to beat the New York Yankees in the World Series.

The Yankees won.

At least one blogger was so unhappy with that result that he moved to Boston, where this year, after watching the Red Sox collapse, he (and some others) sought solace by rooting for the New England Patriots to defeat the New York Giants.

The Giants won.

New York, New York.

It’s a state of mind.

An empire state of mind.

And it is the home of the Super Bowl XLVI champion New York Giants.

    Being out-generaled by a Rebel shouldn’t come as a surprised for people in New England.

      The Rebel general did his part but that Galvamized Yankee wearing no. 83 was the real problem.

        OK, I am confoozed. According to ESPN, #83 for the Giants is Michael Clayton, who had 0 catches. The big catch was by a Michigan Man, Mario Manningham, who is #82, and hails from Ohio.

          OK, apparently you are referring to Welker’s (#83, from Texas Tech) drop.

            Yep. What Giselle said…..

    Actually, almost all of New York’s recent championships have a Michigan connection. The Yankees, of course, have Derek Jeter of Kalamazoo as their captain, the first Super Bowl win over New England was fueled largely by Plaxico Burress of (ugh) Michigan State, and this one owes a lot to Mario Manningham from the University of Michigan.

    As you can imagine Brooks, folks have gone nuts here since the game ended. Did venture out this evening and picked up yet another Championship Hat and T Shirt. 🙂

    Through clenched teeth, I say congratulations.

    However, in the past 10 years the 4 Bostonteams have won 7 championships.

    In those same ten years, the 7 metro NYC teams have won 3.

    Go Bruins!
