The New York Giants started the season 0-2, the New England Patriots started 2-0. The Giants allowed 80 points in their first two games, the Patriots scored almost 80 points in their first two games. The Giants were perfect on the road through the season, the Patriots were completely perfect through the season. The Patriots have not been to a Super Bowl in two years. The Giants won the Super Bowl only two times.

The Patriots beat the Giants to go undefeated in week 17 at the Meadowlands as they beat them 38-35.

So, the Patriots should have no problem with the Giants again...... Read More

In just less than 24 hours from now, the New York Giants will take on the undefeated New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII at Glendale, Arizona. The talks for the past two weeks haven't completely just been about the Patriots going 19-0, something unheard of in today's NFL, but have also been a lot about the underdog New York Giants pulling off one of the biggest upsets in sports today.

Being the underdog has been nothing new for the Giants throughout the NFC playoffs this year, mainly against the number three and two offenses in the NFL this season, Dallas and Green Bay repsectively.... Read More

The Raiders denied a report Friday that owner Al Davis had asked Coach Lane Kiffin to resign.

Citing unidentified sources, ESPN reported that Davis had drawn up a resignation letter for Kiffin two weeks ago but that the coach had refused to sign it. Kiffin, 32, has two years left on the contract he signed in January 2007."There is no issue here," Raiders senior executive John Herrera said. "There was never an issue here. There's nothing to it."

Yes, unfortunately, there is an issue here. In fact, there are a ton of issues here. The Oakland Raiders have long been the laughingstock... Read More

The Raiders return to the "young coach" era may be done before it even took off.

When Al Davis hired former USC assistant coach Lane Kiffin to take control of the Silver and Black, most saw a step in the right direction (myself included). Historically, the Raiders have done fairly well under young coaches. John Madden and Jon Gruden top that list, and most thought Lane Kiffin would head in that direction.

Then came the 4-12 season that saw Oakland struggle to find stability at quarterback, their number one draft pick, JaMarcus Russell, held out for until the end of first... Read More

The ball could not stand up on its own in the frigid wind. It would have to be handled, steadied with a finger—the kind of precise tool only a human can lend—and held in place to start the game. This would mark the opening to New York’s latest opportunity for redemption.

New Yorkers have been living under the tyranny of two New England sports franchises since the turn of the century. The Red Sox, who formally punctuated only home games against the Yankees with the “Rebel Song” of Star Wars fame, have now become something of a parody of themselves.... Read More

Everyone went against them, everyone doubted them... and everyone was almost right.

After Lawrence Tynes missed field goal with four-seconds left in regulation, all thoughts about the Giants beating Green Bay in Lambeau field were very close to dashed.

But yet, against all odds, Tynes fifth field goal attempt would be the one that would send an unprobable Eli Manning and the New York Giants to Arizona and Super Bowl XLII.

"We haven't been given a shot, but we're here and I think we're deserving of it," Manning said. "Right now I'm excited as I can be."

Dario Lodigiani enjoyed a 17-year baseball career from 1935-1954, playing parts of six seasons in the majors and 14 in the minor leagues, losing three years while serving in the military from 1943 to 1945. Lodigiani played at Lowell High School in San Francisco, with his lifelong friend Joe DiMaggio.

At age 19, Lodigiani began his pro career with the Oakland Oaks of the Pacific Coast League and later joined the Williamsport Grays of the Eastern League. He entered the majors in 1938 with the Philadelphia Athletics, the Toronto Maple Leafs of the international League in 1940. He returned... Read More
