I see the same thing. Remember the weeks before the super bowl when they played all the Patriots* games. The Giants never get any love. I think what the Giants did was nothing short of amazing. The Giants were 14 point underdogs against "The best team ever" and they kicked their asses.

I kind of see it the same way. Don't see a ton of "hey giants fans, your team just won the superbowl" commercials.

I'm sure the NY media is all over it, but it could be that they were so outspoken after their win at their parade "we stomped you" that some outlets (espn maybe) decided to shy away from them. Maybe they ruined for a lot of writers what would have been an off season of nothing but 19-0 crapola for 6 months. Instead we get to giggle about 18-1 and hear nothing about the team that made it happen.

Because it was all about the Patriots losing. If I offered you a choice between two hats right now, would you rather have a Giants 14-6 SB Champions hat or a Patriots 19-0 SB Champions hat?

Well, since I'm not an impoverished Nicaraguan kid, I'd take the former.

The NFL only donated like 150 of them. I wonder what happend to the rest. There must have been hundreds of thousands made.
