Super relief

I'm a Buffalo Bills fan, so I didn't much care who won the Super Bowl on Sunday. But after seeing how the game played out, I couldn't be happier about the Giants' victory.

Because now -- and perhaps for all time -- David Tyree's "helmet catch" on the Giants' final touchdown drive will be the clip that best exemplifies New York winning a championship. At long last, we won't have to watch endless reruns of Scott Norwood's 47-yard field goal attempt going wide right for Buffalo in the final seconds of Super Bowl XXV, giving the Giants a 20-19 win over the Bills.

Prior to this past Sunday, the "Nor-wide" kick was the play that gave the Giants their last championship. Now, finally, it's been supplanted by Eli Manning's miracle sack escape, Tyree's nearly impossible catch and the touchdown toss to Plaxico Burress a few plays later that sealed the Giants' 17-14 triumph over the Patriots.

It's about time!
