As Lawrence Tynes’ kick sailed through the uprights in San Francisco sending the Giants to Super Bowl XLVI to face the Patriots–again!–I knew, I had to be home to see it.  I couldn’t be there for Super Bowl XLII, and really, how many more times could this match-up possibly happen–well let’s not think about that now–so I had to go.

As I walked through security at LAX on Saturday, dressed proudly in Giants gear, I was greeted with smiles, kind words of encouragement and even a fist bump; my reception at Logan, well let’s just say, it wasn’t quite as friendly.

Before I left, I didn’t worry too much about the money, the 6,000 miles of traveling I’d have to do in less than 72 hours or how I would feel if we lost.  I just knew I couldn’t miss it and it was all worth it to see my father’s face when I walked in the door.

There are few moments in life that are perfect; this was one of them.  Here is another.


While the season may be over, don’t worry, A Fan Divided isn’t going anywhere.  We have plenty to discuss, from Red Sox off-season moves, to pre-season predictions, and heck we can talk about Super Bowl XLVI forever.  So stay tuned.

      Thanks! I’m excited for baseball too and it will be here before we know it–only 55 days to go! Not that I’m counting.
