Pigskin Pick'em Playoffs - The Super Bowl

I was going to do a long post, completely overanalyzing the Super Bowl. Fortunately, the New York Giants have saved me the trouble by shooting off their mouths. For example (the following quotes are from the New York Post's website):
As he pulled his car up to the Giants Stadium tunnel to unload his bags, [Plaxico] Burress was asked...a direct question: Are you ready to make history? "You better believe it," the towering Giants receiver said.

And then, as he entered the stadium and turned left toward the Giants locker room, Burress was asked for his prediction. Burress never hesitated, flatly stating "23-17."
He didn't identify the winning team. He didn't have to.

Or even better:
Next came Michael Strahan...The same question: Are you ready to make history? "Yes sir," said Strahan, who for 15 years has chased the dream of winning the Super Bowl.

"History will be ours."

How about a quote from Giants chairman Steve Tisch, when asked to predict a winner? (quote from Northjersey.com)
"I'm not going to give you the score...We'll have more points than they do. That's my score."

All analysis of this game is moot. The Patriots will win, and it might even get ugly.

Hey, hey, Eddie boy...! WAKE UP! No... it wasn't a dream my rebel friend! Let's say it together...

AND THE GIANTS WIN THE SUPER BOWL!!!

Slight hangover, perhaps, this morning? (*GRIN*) (*CHUCKLE*) And here I was expecting to see a post-game Ed post. (*TSK-TSK-TSK*)

Here's what *I* wanna know: Did RAG stay loyal (and thus a winner) or did he turn traitor when the pressure was on? (*HUGE FRIGG'N GRIN*)

Second question: DID I WIN...??? Did I win the post-season Pigskin Pick'ems?
