I Hate New York

That title is for all the “fans” of the New York Giants who have despised Eli Manning and would've been ecstatic had he been traded. For me, today's NFC championship game was a win-win. I would've loved it had the Packers pulled it out in overtime (though the Giants clearly outplayed in the second half), but seeing either of the Manning brothers do well makes me happy.

It seems that Eli Manning has grown into an elite quarterback over the last few weeks. He seems to be playing with a high level of confidence, and he's appeared to be relaxed in those high pressure moments. It seems, for Eli at least, the real homefield advantage comes from playing on the road. Here's hoping he can lead the Giants past those Patsies in two weeks.

I hope those damn New Yorkers enjoy the taste of crow.
