Super Bowl XLVI: Patriots seek revenge against Gotham’s Giants

Tom Brady and his teammates will be seeking to gain revenge against Eli Manning and the Giants when the two teams meet for Super Bowl XLVI (46) in the impressive  Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis later today.

The Giants sensationally denied the Patriots what would have been a famous Super Bowl victory four years ago, ending the Patriots’ pursuit of an undefeated season with a last minute touchdown- though the hero of that occasion, Plaxico Burress, hasn’t really enjoyed his time since…..

Local interest centres on the involvement of the Scottish born Kicker for the Giants, Lawrence Tynes, who was also a member of the winning Giants side four years ago.

As usual, the Super Bowl commercials – costing $3.5million per 30 seconds, will attract much attention, including one involving Matthew Broderick reviving his Ferris Bueller role.

Personally, I see this one being a tight affair, with Brady and the Patriots emerging as victors, finally banishing the ghosts of Glendale four years on.
