Super Bowl XLVI New York Giants Samurai War Poem

February 4, 2012

NEW YORK – At the request of one our readers named Bobby G, I am going to write an original Super Bowl war poem for the Giants. This will be my third or fourth time doing this, usually only on special occasions. Some say it is good luck because it confirms that you have fought out the battle in your mind and came to such a conclusion logically. For which, you could not simply arrive at without careful consideration.

I’m sure the Giants players have fought this battle in their minds over and over already. It is wise to do such a thing before a fight and it will help you to anticipate your opponents moves. I’m certain the Giants players are not messing around with this opportunity for greatness and will have a hard time sleeping a wink tonight. The dull anticipation must be excruciating. I am not a Samurai Warrior but I do think they are awesome. Hence, without any further agonizing waiting, I give you, the Super Bowl Samurai War Poem. Enjoy!

Super Bowl XLVI Samurai War Poem. 

Twas the night before the Super Bowl,

At Peyton Manning’s home, in Indy,

The parents were fast asleep by now,

But the two brothers couldn’t sleep.

Big brother, took little brother, out for a ride,

Knowing the big game, would be fresh on his mind,

The ride did Eli good, and so did the talk,

Because Manning is the Giant, and Brady is the beanstalk.

So Easy Eli went to bed that night, bright with a smile,

Sure that his plan to beat Brady, would run like the wild,

But Brady was awake, and scheming in his bed,

And thinking the very same things in his head,

He was sure he could beat the Giants,

If things went his way, and his teammates played great,

But what about Osi and Justin and JPP, No mistakes

He nodded in agreement and let his eyes fall to the floor,

Brady said he already knew, that Big Blue, would triumph once more.

The Patriots QB, spoke of a dream he had that night,

Where two super armies, gathered on a field, to have a fight,

The battle was quick, but decisive, in the scorekeepers mind,

And it was clear who had won, and who had lost, by a mile,

Only one man stood above it all, and made the right calls,

This man was named Coughlin, and his Captain stood tall.

His captain was Manning, among the big lucky three,

Who were voted Super Bowl captains, Manning wins MVP,

Your head is just spinning, and your thinking, how can this be?

The last thing Brady remembered, was Eli going to Disney.

And then he woke up, to Giselle’s punch in the gut,

She told him he was sweating, and screaming like a nut,

Tom rubbed his eyes, and told her he’s not surprised,

The Giants are going to win, and leave us far behind.

His vision was right, and the G-Men did win,

Mara lifted the Lombardi trophy, to let the moment sink in,

A Parade of Champions, in a Canyon of Heros, my friends,

Do You Believe brothers and sisters? Because me, I’m all in.

OK let me have it. What did you think of the Giants poem for Super Bowl XLVI? On a scale from 1-10, with 1 being the worst and 10 being the best. And by the way, I know this isn’t a graphic war poem like it could have been but we have to remember that kids read these article too.

side note: I would like to request someone from the Wounded Warrior Project contact me at nygreporter@yahoo.com to discuss adding a program to your tool box called the War Poem Project if it doesn’t already exist. I think it would be beneficially to the war veterans and give them an incredible outlet to be creative and imaginative. I think we could get some terrific sponsors to put on shows and have them directly see the results first hand. I’m sure that by the time you guys read this all of the homework will already be completed but this simply me writing at a spontaneous moment and sharing it with my readers.

Super Bowl Saturday and the Spectacular Satellite Soapbox

February 4, 2012

NEW YORK – The New York Giants are going to play a very important game tomorrow and they know it. All they need to do is remain confident and stay focused on the game. Win the game. Focus on making yourself play on a consistent level the entire game and do your job. Cover your assignments and sack Patriots QB Tom Brady often. Back in the old days, a man would ride into town on a horse pulled carriage with a sign on the side that read ‘Magic Elixir Cures All That Ails’. This man would “park” his carriage somewhere in town and pull out his soapbox to stand high on top of while he sold his soul for a satchel of silver. This man was a dream killer and used hope to blind the faithful. Selling them empty promises filled with poison, he calls himself Professor Belichick and boy does he have a monkey named Manning on his back.

The only difference between this ‘false prophet’ man and how the New England Patriots media machine sells confidence, is the Patriots use a satellite orbiting the earth from outer space as their soapbox in the year 2012. The truth is the New England Patriots look rattled to me and nervous. They look concerned and blinded by their desire to avenge the most devastating loss in New England Patriots history, when the New York Giants beat the undefeated Patriots (18-1) in Super Bowl XLII. The greatest upset in Super Bowl history with the greatest play in Super Bowl history. That is something that will never go away and will be around for centuries. There are Giants fans right now, carving Super Bowl XLII Champions and the 18-1 story into marble and stone somewhere in the tri-state area. Those are things that will be around forever, yes Andre 3K, I mean, forever ever. And I too am sorry Miss Jackson. I am for real.

If the Giants beat the Patriots in the big game for a second time, the G-Men go down in history as beating them twice in four years. If the Patriots were somehow lucky enough to win (knock on wood they don’t win), history wouldn’t say they avenged the worst loss in team history, football history will say the Patriots evened up the score with New York. I prefer to win this game on Sunday and ponder the future on Monday. Giants Head Coach Tom Coughlin has really done a great job with this team and it’s clear that he has never stopped believing in them. I am proud to include myself among the few who never stopped believing in this team and I can be seen from time to time asking fans “Do You Believe?” on twitter during games. I’m all in and ready to get this game started. Being this happy all of the time is exhausting and my face hurts from smiling all of the time when checking out the Super Bowl XLVI coverage. However, I am getting concerned that my head might explode from the information overload that has occurred these past two weeks.

Be sure to check out our New York Giants articles the entire offseason, draft coverage, fantasy football coverage and news about the upcoming nygreporter 2 year anniversary on March 6, 2012 will follow the Super Bowl coverage. Since there is a retractable roof at Lucas Oil stadium, it won’t be necessary to check the weather reports. The roof can be closed in 9 minutes if need be and at 4.5 acres, it is the largest open space and retractable roof in the NFL.

Despite all of the hype surrounding this game, which team is physically more prepared to win Super Bowl XLVI?
