February 6, 2012


If you haven't heard already, the New York Giants won the 2012 Superbowl. I was only half-watching the game, until the very last few minutes. The game is divided into four quarters of 15 minutes each, and there is a halftime between the second and third quarters. The very beginning of the game saw the New York Giants winning, which distressed my brother slightly, seeing as he is very much a Patriots fan. Luckily for him, they were able to gain a lead before halftime, and even maintained it almost to the very end.

We were watching the last few minutes of the game when the Giants jumped ahead yet again with the ball in their possession.

At about 1 minute and 4 seconds, my mother says "Oh don't worry- the Patriots are going to win".

At about one minute and two seconds, they scored the touchdown they needed to finally surpass the Patriots.

The look on my brothers face was priceless, and he spent the remainder of the night giving my mother the evil eye and shaking his head mournfully. Why, oh why, would you say that? Especially a minute before the game is to end...
