    That's what I've been doing all day too. I only know the Giants miraculously pulled off the upset by happening across MSNBC.com.

    They can't be that giant if they need to wear body armour to play Rugby.
    Why? Did someone spontaneously combust?

    Ah, Nascar - the only "sport" with no athletes.

    If there was any sport I'd choose football over in some strange hell where they make you watch sports, that would be it.

    If you say so - I still wouldn't touch it with a 10 footer. Something about doing 500 laps in a circle just doesn't excite me in any way, shape, or form.

    Just ask me, I know it all when it comes to NASCAR...:crazy: ...:D 
    Admittedly, you have to have some understanding about race cars/speeds attained/tolerances on man & machine/teamwork/sportsmanship for it to float your boat.
    The unpredictability and the drama of "it aint over til it's over" is very appealing to me I guess.

    Not here, either. I don't have cable or broadcast TV.

    And some Giants fans were right there with their marshmallows.

    And I think I know where people went when they couldn't find tickets for the Stuperbowl.

    Exactly what happened that was so "upsetting"?

    I'm not a huge NASCAR fan either... cars going around in circles trying to get in front of one another? Not my cup of tea.

    OMG


    The NY Giants, the underdogs of the season, defeated the NE Patriots, the undefeated team that broke records with an 18-0 season
