Out of the shadows of greater teams, the New York Giants will finally have their day in the sun in what should be an amazing ticker-tape parade. 

We all had far more lauded clubs targeted to win it all.

New York showed us all how much we know about this game, and will now have a deserving final bow before the offseason hits. 

Here is the info for tomorrow's parade:

When: Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 11:00 a.m. EDT

Watch: Route starts at Battery Place and Washington Street. Ends at City Hall Plaza with ceremony and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg presenting Key to the City. 

Where: ESPNEWS; NFL Network; Local CBS New York

They were never given a shot, but the New York Giants ripped the Super Bowl from teams we all thought were far more fit as contenders. Now they finally come out from the shadows to steal every last bit of the spotlight. 

It will be a deserving send off for a team that defied all odds. According to WPIX, Mayor Michael Bloomberg had this to say. 

Big Blue gave us a game to remember, and on Tuesday we're going to give them a parade to remember. 

Like the Green Bay Packers in 2010, the Giants entered the postseason on nobody's radar. They were even underdogs in a Super Bowl that most pundits had them winning. 

The nation was far more interested in the spectacle that surrounds the big names like Tom Brady and the Patriots

It's finally time to accept that Eli Manning and the Giants are every bit as elite as every other star-studded team. 

They proved, without a doubt, that they were the deserving champions all along, and the other teams were merely bit players in what was an amazing season. 

On Tuesday, they take their bow before thousands that have been cheering them on from day one.

It's time for the millions that doubted them to follow.
