The Giants Won The Super Bowl! How Could I Write About Anything Else?

WE WON! What? I’m like an honorary New York Giant.

As I’ve babbled about before, I’ve love Big Blue since I was knee-high to a grasshopper so winning the Super Bowl (AGAIN) is awesome.

Eating cake, tiny hamburgers, nachos and potato skins, none of which I had to make, is also awesome and why Super Bowl Sunday should be a national holiday.

Like I need an excuse to buy more cake.

My younger one freaked out because I yell a lot during most games but for the Super Bowl? I’m a little out of control. My older one was mostly confused and kept asking: Why are you being so loud again?

Well, son, because Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning might hear my pearls of wisdom like:

“GET HIM”

“TACKLE HIM”

“THROW IT”

“WHAT ARE YOU DOING?”

“STAY IN BOUNDS”

“GET OUT OF BOUNDS”

“RUN”

“RUN FASTER”

“KILL HIM”

“WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL ME?”

“HOLY CRAP I CAN’T TAKE ANYMORE.”

“CRUUUUUUUZZZZZ”

“I’M DOWN WITH JPP!”

I’ve seen us go to the Super Bowl 5 times and win 4. In fact, the only time I almost got into a massive fist fight with a large man was when we lost to the Ravens. I’m pretty sure the Giants just want to keep me out of jail.

This year was extra special to me because it was the first time I’ve gotten to watch games with my son when he’s actually cared about football and the New York Giants, not just about OOH THE TV IS ON.

Now he’s seen the New York Giants win the Super Bowl!

But between you, me and E: Watching the Super Bowl with my son was better than winning.

  1. Now you’re just rubbing it in. I’ve seen the Browns play in exactly zero super bowls. Wanna guess how many they won? I don’t even remember the AFC Championships they played in the 80’s. The Cavs are 9-13 and we’re actually somewhat excited about that. We say things like “look how hard they are trying, isn’t that great?”

    Well, I was rooting for the Giants last night, mostly for you. So, I guess what I’m saying is, you’re welcome. Love ya!

  2. Not normally a Giants fan, but I was rooting for your team last night! Unfortunately, my boys were less than enthusiastic. Now, when the Cardinals moved through the playoffs and won the World Series this year… well, there were many a late night and nail-biting sessions and the like!

  3. Funny, similar things are yelled at the TV in our house…

    Poor hubby can hardly contain himself. Little man is at the stage where random screaming/yelling makes him cry. Makes it difficult to hang out in our house on game day. What? You try not screaming or cheering…

    1. My daughter was really unhappy with me. I can tone it down some for regular season. But the Super Bowl? Impossible. Luckily my daughter fell asleep quickly and my son didn’t mind as much. At least they aren’t used to yelling, right?

  4. Good to hear other women watch football like I do…like watching is indeed a sport. I get out of breath and am often sore afterwards. My dog thinks I am insane and my husband just thinks I am hilarious (and kinda scary) as does any guy he decides to bring over to watch the game. But you never know when they might hear you!
