NY Giants are in SuperBowl XLII

After a game with four lead change between the 2 teams, NY Football Giants defeated Packers today in Green Bay as the NFC champion and got their ticket to meet the 'undefeated' New England Patriots at Super Bowl XL II. Lawrence Tynes kicked a 47 yard field goal in overtime and Giants won 23-20. (Photo by REUTERS/Jeff Haynes).

After 9 consecutive wins on the road, the Giants played an intense football game today and won a tremendous game of field positions. Winning 10 games as visitors in one season is a new NFL record. Lawrence Tynes' missed field goal as time expired during regulation was such a nail biter! It reminded me so much as the Scott Norwood's field goal miss in Super Bowl XXV. Thank goodness he redeemed himself (and the team) by kicking the winning field at overtime.

I know this is wine blog, but I have to write a short note this piece of NFL football history. Who would have believed this on January 1st of 2008. As a NY Giants fan, this is truly unbelievable!

Some champions are baptized by fire and the others are born on ice!
