The Giants once again beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl on a late drive that featured a spectacular catch. This time, Giants receiver Mario Manningham did the honors by making a difficult grab while somehow keeping both feet in bounds. The difference between last night's game and the one in 2008 was that New York had one of the most bizarre plays in Super Bowl history when New England let Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw score a touchdown (Bradshaw didn't know whether to go in the end zone or sit on his butt.) The other play from the game that needs to be mentioned is Wes Welker's drop that could've put the game away for the Patriots. The reaction from the New England bench afterward says it all.
Kicking Them While They're Down
A pair of Steelers could not help but revel in the Patriots misery last night. Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison tweeted, "Told you, cheaters never win!!!!!!!!!," while safety Ryan Clark said, "0-2 post spy gate! Just saying!!"

Gisele Bundchen, seen above consoling husband Tom Brady after his disappointing loss, was fired up after the game. After getting taunted by a Giants fan, the supermodel backed up her man, saying, "My husband can not f------ throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time." We're wating for Anna Burns to respond.
Gambling DOES Pay
Yes, someone put $1,000 on the first score of the game to be a safety. He won $50,000. Here are the results for all the prop bets offered last night.
Gambling DOES NOT Pay
Specifically, it doesn't pay for television host/Patriots fan/Hot Clicks favorite Maria Menounos.
