Congratulations to the New York Giants

It was a great Super Bowl and a lot of fun to watch all four quarters.  I would have to say this is one of the best Super Bowls I've seen, with many great plays on offense and defense by both teams.  The New York Giants beat the New England Patriots 21-17 as they came back from down 17-9 by getting two field goals and then the winning touchdown near the end of the game.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning was the Most Valuable Player and his fourth quarter heroics and passing stats made him very deserving of the MVP Award.  I really like that Eli is humble and gave credit to his receivers and other teammates.  That's outstanding and a classy thing to do.  I hope more players will do this.  And of course he's right too, because the Giants did win as a team and a number of guys made important contributions, including fantastic catches by receivers which really kept this game exciting from start to finish.
