Eli Manning and the New York Giants saved their very best for the fourth quarter to emerge with an epic 21-17 victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI Sunday in Indianapolis. It was a great game.
Manning also was the MVP in 2008, when he threw a scoring pass in the final minute to help New York upset New England and ruin the Patriots’ bid for a perfect season. Manning now is one of only five players in NFL history with multiple Super Bowl MVP awards.
The halftime show was also interesting. Someone was really naughty.
M.I.A., who joined Madonna on stage in Lucas Oil Stadium to help sing ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’,’ appeared to flip the middle finger to the camera as the song came to a dirty word, which she stopped short of saying.
But as you can clearly see in the photo above, instead of saying the word, M.I.A. “flips the bird” toward the camera — and the millions watching on NBC at home. NBC was apparently late on its delay and allowed the act to be broadcast — at least in some areas.
