This is UNREAL!

This run by the Giants has been by FAR the most fun I have experienced as a fan since the Rangers won the Cup in 94. But I think if the Giants do slay the Goliath and pull off the upset against the Pats, this run might overtake the one the Rangers had. The reason why it is so much fun is because I have gone into every game expecting them to lose. I know it sounds like a pessimistic thing to think about your team, but hey, if the glove fits right. Don’t get me wrong, I love all my teams, but the fact that I am not expecting them to win makes the Victory that much sweater.

Last night for example, I had a couple of friends over, a couple of adult beverages, and I was really starting to feel good about our chances in the fourth quarter. Only to be crushed, not once, but twice, by field goals that sailed wide left. After the miss that could have sent the Giants to the Superbowl at the end of regulation I felt like someone had just told me my dog died. I fell back into my chair, with my hat over my face and didn’t say a word for about 3 minutes. I then stood up, finished what was left of my cocktail and started a string of obscenities that would have made George Carlin blush.
But I regained my senses, and waited for the coin toss. “The Giants call Tails . . . . . . .It’s Heads.”  F#$K!!!
Alright, lets play some D!
Then as Bret Favre stepped back and let go a very poor throw to the nearside sideline. Corey Webster jumped the route perfectly and made the interception of his life to give the Giants hope. Then the offense sputtered and once again the fate of the Giants rested on the right foot of the Scottish born Lawrence Tynes.
“Just keep it right, just keep it right . . .” I repeated to my self over and over. The kick sailed through the artic night, “It looks good, it looks good . . .ITS GOOD!” I screamed with elation as my friend and I leapt into each others arms and jumped up and down like little boys screaming “We’re going to the Superbowl!”
I can’t remember the last time I was that Happy.
Thank you New York Giants!
This is what sports is all about. They have a daunting task in front of them, but they have already done enough for me. Should they happen to pull off the Upset, I might need the number of a good heart surgeon.
LETS GO GIANTS!!!!!

It pays to be a pessimist. . .

I find that when i think negative, pessimistic thoughts about my teams they do well (except for the Knicks, GOD they suck) The Rangers go on a winning streak and i start to get excited, start talking a little trash, and then they lose 5 in a row. The Giants string a couple of wins together, i think they have a shot, and they lose to the Vikings. Don't even get me started about last season with the Mets!

It even happens with Movies some times. I was really looking forward to "I am Legend" and i left the theater saying, "Hey i liked that movie better when it was called Serenity!"

Deep down i will always support my teams, but it seems the more negative thoughts i think about them the better they do.

PS-Suck it Tark! A Ranger fan figured it out!
