Celebration Time..Come On!!
Up and down Broadway fans lined up for a chance to see their New York Giants hoist up the Vince Lombardi trophy in celebration of their Super Bowl victory. Those fans were with the team through the highs and lows of the 9-7 season. Whenever a team nabs that Vince Lombardi trophy, the hometown also reaps the benefits of the win. Those fans who may not have been able to see their team at a home game got a chance to see them up close and personal in the teams celebration parade, riding down the streets of New York. People took time off and took their kids out of school just to see Eli Manning raise the trophy over his head with a big smile on his face. Not only had the Giants won this great feat, they defeated the odds with beating the Patriots for the second time for a Super Bowl win. How often does something like that happen?…not often. So why not relish in the glory of being the champs? They earned it and deserved that win. Like coach Tom Coughlin said toldhis team, ” The key thing was to remember this: all things are possible for those who believe…we always believed.”
And that’s exactly what the Giants did…believed. How else can any team strive through a mediocre season and end up with the victory? I’m not saying that every team who believes will be the Super Bowl champ, that’s impossible. But as the saying goes, “on any given Sunday…” meaning it doesn’t matter how good or bad the record was, there is always a shot for victory.
