Why The Giants Will Not Win The Super Bowl
A week ago I posted this article, and Manning came out on top. So, for a week I was predicting that the Giants would win the Super Bowl. However that all changed yesterday when this heartbreaking story came out…
Apparently for a few minutes the image you see above was posted on “giants.com” any sports fan knows how big of a jinx that is, even if it was only on there a few minutes. The damage has already been done. The NFL came out with a statement yesterday and said the following…
“It is common practice for both teams to create web pages in advance of the conference championship games and Super Bowl. In this case, the hidden URL for the page was inadvertently available for a brief period of time while it was being positioned on the NFL server for possible post tomorrow night.”
That is a fine excuse, but it doesn’t change the fact that people saw it. The jinx is now in spin cycle and there is only one thing that can stop it. The Patriots have to accidentally jump the gun, as well. But, I do not see that happening, considering all of the backlash the Giants have received from this. You may all think I am crazy for believing in such things but a lot of sports fans do, it’s not just me.
Plus, I have had some experience in this area. Last year the Rangers were so very close to winning the World Series when a local news station sent out a text saying, “The Rangers are World Series Champs.” And of course we all know what happened after that. The 9th inning meltdown in game six…lose game seven, and I spend five weeks crying in my shower.
My official prediction for the Super Bowl: Patriots win in a come from behind victory. 31-24
