    I thought it pretty simple.
    Are you rooting for the Giants because you hate Belichick, Randy Moss, or the whole New England area or because you love the Giants?
    Do you want to see the Pats win because they are the best team in football or you love Tom Brady, or do you think Tom Coughlin is a rat bastard?

    Why do you want to see a particular team win: Because you like them or want the other side to fail?

    I'm a lifelong Giants fan.
    I expect bone-crushing disappointment.
    At least it won't be as bad as the Baltimore game, when I thought they had a chance.

    I'm rooting for the Patriots for three reasons: 1) It's nice to be a witness to such sports history. 2) I no longer live in the New England area so I don't really have to deal with obnoxious Pats fans. 3) I'm tired of the whole Miami's the only unbeaten, yada, yada, yada.

    That said, I'm hoping the Giants keep it close. I'd like to see the Pats win 34-31, with Tynes missing the potential game-tying field goal as time expires, ala Scott Norwood.

    I'm a Michigan fan, so I've always been a Tom Brady guy. Never rooted against the Patriots.

    And in this game, the only outcome I want to see is 19-0. I couldn't care less about the Giants Shocking the World (tm).

    Actually, the outcome I want to see is Giants 8, Patriots 4. Whatever other number appear infront of those, I could care.

    At the risk of incurring Moddy's wrath...

    There is not a form of death, dismemberment, pain or humiliation that I would think was too much for Bill Belichick.

    I hate everything New England in the sports world, but I'm not a Giants homer either. Still pulling for the G-Men, though...

    You have a gun with one bullet and two men standing in front of you: Bill Belichick and Roger Clemens. Who do you choose? WHO DO YOU CHOOOOOOOOOSE?

    Can't stand the Patriots, who would be the first to blow up Plaxico's 23-17 prediction while overlooking the fact that the franchise has already trademarked 19-0. Here's hoping the Giants will trademark some 18-1 t-shirts.

    You're making that up Oz. The Patriots only live one play at a time. they never talk smack, never hit late and help old ladies across the street.

    Oz is a liar!!!!
