Giants and Patriots

The Superbowl is this evening.  I probably won’t watch it.  Football bores me.  So do most sports.  If I had to pick a sport that I halfway like, though, it would be basketball, since it’s faster-paced.  In football, it seems that making one little mistake causes the players to start all over again (if that makes any sense).

Most people I know are rooting for the New York Giants.  I have a lot of family in Indiana, which is where the Superbowl is being held this year.  They like the Giants because the Giants have Eli Manning, the brother of Peyton Manning, a superstar for the Indianapolis Colts.  And, of course, because I live in upstate New York, most of the people here are rooting for the Giants.  Should I support the Patriots because I lived in Massachusetts for a couple of years?  Naaa.  I guess I’ll go with the Giants.  I’ll find out if they won tomorrow morning, or later tonight before I go to bed!
