Giants Fans Ecstatic After NFC Title Win

NEW YORK (AP) — New York Giants fans were ecstatic after their team beat the San Francisco 49ers 20-17 to advance to the Super Bowl.

Francisco Montesino, a 32-year-old bus driver from Brooklyn, started jumping for joy when Lawrence Tynes kicked the winning field goal in sudden-death overtime in the NFC championship Sunday night in San Francisco. Montesino was watching the game at a bar in midtown Manhattan. He called the game “awesome.”

Sam Van Saint, a 30-year-old actor from New York, said the game was perfect and met all expectations of a playoff game.

The Giants will face the Patriots in the Super Bowl on Feb. 5 in Indianapolis, just as they did when they won it in 2008.

Earlier Sunday, the Patriots beat the Baltimore Ravens 23-20 in the AFC championship game.

    Giants Fans Ecstatic, yeah right. I wonder how those idiots Giants fans who have been calling for the firing of Coughlin feel now. And you know who you are.

    I’m sure those idiots were all cheering after the Giants victory last night, bunch of hypocrites.

    No team is perfect, no game is perfect, no head coach is perfect, but Coughlin got the job done and now is in line to win his second Super Bowl title.

    So much for “it’s time to fire Coughlin and bring in Cowher”, who by the way, won only one title in 15 seasons as the Steelers head coach.

        I’m a Giants fan jerk-off, but one who stands by his team and head coach.

    This win was super sweet; everyone played hard on offense, defense and special teams, and considering the licking that Eli Manning took and still threw those passes right on the money, I can say with dead solid conviction that we deserved this win! We caused the fumbles, and a special thanks to #15, whose name escapes me at the moment for catching that mistake by their return guy and getting us those points set up!!! And for recovering that OT fumble!!! Game ball!!!

    New England, we’re comin’ to getcha!!! 😀
