Super Bowl, Super Tuesday, Superman

The New York Football Giants win Super Bowl XLII. In what could be the greatest upset in Super Bowl history, the Giants defeated the New England Patriots 17-14 with two (80 and 83 yard) touchdown drives in the 4th quarter. Just one win shy of perfection, the Patriots end their season with a glaring 18-1 record. T-Shirts are current available on eBay with the subtext "*Cheaters Never Prosper" which references this season's 'incident' where the Patriots were disciplined by the NFL for illegally videotaping New York Jets' signals. See Spygate on Wikipeida.

Today is Super Tuesday for the 2008 US Presidential election. We'll see what happens tonight as the Democratic and Republican Primary election poll numbers are tallied for 24 states.

Continuing this theme, the new Song of the Week (SOTW) is the theme from the movie Superman (1978). Composed by John Williams. Need I say more?
