Deja Blue all over again. The New York Football Giants are champions. 

As improbable a run as Super Bowl 42 was, the Giants did it again to be top dog. And again, they did it against Tom Brady and the Patriots, 21-17.  

In a thrilling game, Eli and company earned a second ring and proved that they were the best team when it counted. 

At it's culmination, this season had the lowest lows and the highest of highs. This team had its back to the wall and started the popular "All-In" mantra, and hasn't looked back since. 

From the amazing play of Eli Manning, to the unstoppable defensive play (throughout the entire postseason, allowing only 54 points) to the clutch performance in each game of punter Steve Weatherford, this was truly a team effort. 

Again, a receiver made an epic catch, maybe not as circus-like as the David Tyree catch, but Mario Manningham's catch was just as amazing, with a perfectly thrown ball from Eli. 

From the safety to start the game (which ended up being huge), to the Chase Blackburn interception, to the countless amazing passes from Eli, this game really had the Giants firing on all cylinders and playing as one unit. 

This is our day, Giants fans. If you live anywhere near New York, you need to go to the parade tomorrow. Having been to the Giants parade in 2008, and the Yankees parade in 2009, it is well worth it.
