Would that be Reggie Possum, tight end out of Nebraska, just off the injured reserve?

Teddy was cute but I did not see any quills on him, a psuedopine?

I hate the Giants, go Pats!

I'm much more of a college football fan, but once the Cowboys are out of it, I go for my former home team, NY Giants.

Not to mention that even the commercials have sucked lately. I may take a pass on this one, and I'm a football fan.
My thoughts exactly.

DW is totally crushed and I will sulk about the Pats loss (again the Giants), but both teams fought hard and the Giants earned the win.

Congrats to you NY fans...

Can't get over how much pat player Gronkowski resembles Crixus from Spartacus.

Congrats to the Giants. I thought it was a great game even though I was rooting for the Pats. Shoulda, coulda, woulda. I would love to see a rematch in next year's Super Bowl.

Did one of the quarterbacks have some kind of iPod touch device on his forearm? At one point I saw him flip open something.

Maybe he was just tweeting (IN SUPRBOWL HOPE 2 WIN).
