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

You just found a reliable supplier who got a couple of packages to you no problem. But now you would like to order a whole cycle, not only you want to get everything home before you start your cycle, a complete cycle is also cheaper. But now a problem presents itself. You didn't really mind losing a small package worth fifty or so bucks, but this one is a big one and when couple of hundreds of dollars are at stake you want to make sure there is no interference by anyone. Not to mention any problems you might have should the package be intercepted with your name on it.

Normally,... Read More

Well, they did it. The New England Patriots were able to pull off a close win over the New York Giants Sunday night and become the first 16-0 team in the history of the NFL. More records were broken that night with Tom Brady setting the NFL Passing TD Record with 50 touchdowns (previously 49 by Peyton Manning), and Randy Moss broke the NFL Receiving TD Record with 23(previously 22 held by Jerry Rice). But with a perfect season comes the comparison to the only other team to go unbeaten, the often talked-about 1972 Miami Dolphins. The question now arises, are the Patriots better because they...

The Mitchell Report has brought the controversy over steroids in baseball to living rooms and water coolers across the country. But what was lost among words like androstenedione and Human Growth Hormone was the long term effects that a generation of cheaters have had on the baseball fan's ability to appreciate formerly rare individual accomplishments. Baseball, more than any other sport, reveres personal achievement and historic events. Being part of an exclusive club of players who've accomplished something special is, well, special. But the questionable ethics of baseball's past two decades... Read More
I gave myself a Christmas present by calling my childhood hero, Jake LaMotta to see how he's doing. I took an advice from Ed to keep calling the champ every now and then just to keep tabs on him. Jake at his age forgets who I am and I have to kind of refresh his memory. It doesn't bother me none because like I said before in my other LaMotta article... We hardly ever get those chances to talk to our childhood heroes. I bet you're wondering why in the hell would you have a guy like Jake LaMotta as a hero? Well, to tell you the truth I find alot of the behavior issues similar as myself. When I... Read More
There are very few perfect moments in a normal life. To be certain, there are very few perfect moments even in an extraordinary life. Storybook moments, where things happen just as they are supposed to, can often elude us. Good doesn’t always triumph over evil, the good guy doesn’t always get the girl, and sometimes the princess is just kissing a frog. As we grow older, we become accustomed to the ordinary, the near-miss, and the unjust result, and storybook moments become just that, the stuff of children’s stories. And yet, once in a while, without warning, one of these startling moments... Read More
