The New York Giants and their head coach Tom Coughlin didn't want to give the New England Patriots any bulletin-board material before for Sunday's Super Bowl 2012. The good news for Coughlin, none of his players did, however, the organization might have slipped up a bit.
Briefly on Saturday, the Giants' official website claimed that their team were Super Bowl champions!
The flub is about the same as The Miami Herald proclaiming the NBA's Miami Heat World Champions in their advertising section. The Heat lost the championship to the Dallas Mavericks in six games. Oops.
Will this really provide Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick with extra fuel? Probably not. They have other things to worry about, like Victory Cruz and Osi Umenyiora
