Super Bowl XLII on February 3, 2008 in Glendale, Arizona saw the New York Giants defeat the New England Patriots 17-14. New England came into the game undefeated and have been since been dubbed one of the biggest busts in the history of the NFL for their inability to finish off a great season.
Fast forward 4 years and the same two teams are in the Super Bowl. On Sunday in Indianapolis, Indiana, the Giants and Patriots will fight again for the Lombardi Trophy. Once again, the Patriots find themselves the favorites and seem eager to get revenge.
Paralleling the story line of the Super Bowl rematch is the Presidential election being held this November as it was in November 2008. Like New England, the Republican party seems eager to exercise the demons of a bad result in 2008.
Superstitious Republicans are hoping for a New England win on the 5th of February which in turn may lead to a Republican win in November.
In summary, New England win=Republican win, Giants win again=Obama win again…or not, but I’ll rooting for the Patriots on Sunday just in case.
