I was born in New Bedford and lived in Rochester (about 20 mins. from New Bedford) until I was 12. Then my parents got divorced and my mother got the bright idea to rip us away from our family and start a new life in CA.. Much of my family is still in Mass. My father still lives in N.B. and most of my aunts,uncles, cousins etc. are scattered in Mass. We trace directly back to the Pilgrims. My great, great, great, great's many removed were Alexander and Mary Standish on my father's side(brother to Miles Standish-he's a great uncle). I wonder if the Standish's gave many of my father's side the love of booze...

Good job Giants! Someone had to dethrone the Pats- no team should be that good. Good to see a competetive Super Bowl once in a while. I hate blowout SBs.

Gints?

I know, we lost but...Gints? :poke:

:rollhappy:

(I'm trying to be upbeat about this, mind you!)
:) I actually don't know where the term started or if it means anything but that it's short for giants.. maybe how it's pronounced in and around the city

It was a good game and some great commercials too :clap: Budweiser always does a good job and that baby e-trade commercial had a wonderful ending. I am proud to say this is the only full game I saw this season...that is outside of HS football...I did catch every varsity game this season. (of course my son was playing)

I actually can't believe there are people yelling on the streets about the victory. They must be from NJ, nobody from NYC has that much energy invested in the Giants! Oh, and nobody from NY would overturn cars for that either. :wink:
