Approximately 25,000 New England Patriots fans showed up to send Bill Belichick & Co. off to Indianapolis on Sunday afternoon. It was quite the star-studded affair, but the real surprise came when quarterback Tom Brady addressed the crowd and said he'd like to see even more fans at the Super Bowl XLVI after party.
"Hopefully we have a lot more people at our party next week," Brady said.
This story has been written before. We saw it in 2007 when Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had purchased tickets to Green Bay and then again prior to Super Bowl XLII when the Boston Globe published and began selling the book "19-0: The Historic Championship Season of New England's Unbeatable Patriots." It reared its ugly head again last weekend when San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis began promoting his NFC Championship after party.
Needless to say, all of these plans were ruined courtesy of Big Blue.
The smug arrogance is just something that doesn't sit well with the New York Giants, who admitted in 2007 it made them mad, and this is likely to be no different. Once again the underdogs (started as 3 points dogs in Vegas), Big Blue will look to prove the world wrong and "fluke" their way to another Lombardi Trophy.
