Any time a team from Boston loses, it is cause for rejoicing. When a team from NY defeats a team from Boston, it is downright sweet.
The subplot I like the most concerning the NY Giant win in Superbowl 42 is the vindication of Coach Tom Coughlin and Quarterback Eli Manning. Coughlin and Manning have been the subject of all sorts of criticism for the better part of two years. The cheapest shots have come from whiner Tiki Barber, the all time rushing leader for the Giants who retired last year. As he retired, at age 32 and still in top form, he blasted Tom Coughlin's coaching ability and questioned Eli Manning's intelligence and decision making as a quarterback. Now, less than a year after Barber's attacks, Coughlin and Manning celebrate their team's world championship.
Sweet...and great to see a team from Boston lose.
