It’s Super Bowl time!!!!!
This year is virtually a rematch between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots. If you remember, in 2007 the same two teams faced off with the Giants pulling off the biggest upset in Super Bowl history. The Patriots were undefeated and on a record breaking streak (their ONLY loss that year was to the Giants in their last gameof the season) The pain felt by the Patriots who were so close to being crowned as the best team ever is unimaginable.
Now imagine if they loss AGAIN, to the same team!!! Well they got their shot at revenge this Sunday.
The drama this year seems to be more promising than past years. Along with the intrigue of the rematch. You have the icon, Madonna performing at halftime. Although she has officially promised that there will be NO wardrobe malfunctions, its still worth watching.
