    From a purely subjective, neutral standpoint - that is one of the greatest underdog stories I have ever witnessed in sports, any sport. Everything about that Giants run was crazy culminating in the absolutely unthinkable SBXLII victory.

    I must have been high as shit when I bet ON the Giants to win that game, $300. My friend that I bet against said that he spent a hefty portion of the money he thought for sure he was going to win a few days before the game. I don't blame him

    Since then the English team is cursed at tournaments (penalty curse) and will never win a title again.)

    With all due respect, and perhaps its a matter your of age and/or interest, but I would have to say (IMHO) that the single greatest upset of the century was the "Miracle on Ice". Of course there is a wealth of contributing factors of the times when it occurred that you had to be privy to and have experienced, but my friend there was simply no way, no way we beat the Russians that Olympics, with that team and then go on to take the Gold no less. And for the record I'm no hockey fan either. After that "Miracle" I'd say that the N.Y. Jets beating the Colts in SB III would be next on the list of "upsets". The kicker on that one was, Joe "Willy" guaranteed the victory. Holy Shit on that one!!! LOL LOL


    Spoiler:
    "The Immaculate Reception" certainly should make an appearance in any "Greatest Upsets" list. That was an amazing turn of events for the Steelers and helped lead to 4 SB victories.
    The Houston Astros cheated Major League Baseball from 2017-18!!!!

    They cheated their way to a couple of League Championships & a World Series!!!!

    Is that how we teach our kids to play the game now?????

    13 favorite scary passage/scene in any Stephen King novel...............................

    1. Larry Underwood navigates the Lincoln tunnel in "The Stand".
    2. The cat lurching across the garden. Pet semetery.
    This has always scared the crap out of me... clumps of soil in its fur, blank stare and the smell...

    I had the same thought... the penguin ornament...
    So when I got the penguin with my order of the Suntup Missery, I tried to find that passage in the book, but couldn't find it, I think I did see a mention of the penguin, but I didn't find where Annie says she always has it face south. So I assume that was just in the movie? At anyrate, I try to have mine facing south too.
