SuperB(r)owl XLII NY Giants Victory Parade

This weekend was SuperBowl Sunday - a season long end of National Football League.
Here is a brief description of the Game.
The competetion started in Mid August and ended with a final between New York Giants and New England Patriots.
Giants were underdogs and Patriots had had a clean season - they had won all their 16 games in the Tournament and were favorites to win. But in the end the Best Team Won.
To pay respect to a brilliant win - I attended the Giants victory parade (locally called as Ticker Tape Parade) in Manhattan (called in sick :( at the office :)). Here are some pics.....

Go GIANTS!!!!!

The li'll GIANT

The Enron Ticker Shards

The FANS

Most Valuable Player (MVP) Eli Manning

The Spirit of New York

The Victory Paper Trail
I like to attend such events - where for those moments everyone becomes one - there is no difference between classes, race, color, sexes - its just mass Hysteria. Here is a link to additional pitures.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.....

Hi Ceedy,
Congratulations. Your team, the Giants, won the championship. The ticker tape parade was probably awesome. I just hope nobody from your office read your blog otherwise you will be caught malingering. He, he, he, *lol* O what we will do for our favorite sports heroes. Thanks for the post. Have a great and pleasant day always.
