A couple of thoughts for the Giants from a Patriots fan. First off congratulations on an truly amazing performance. Your team played aggressive and confident the entire game and earned the win. Here is where the problem lies. During the weekend leading up to the game everyone in Arizona partied and got along great, almost as if the game wasn't the top priority. Everyone on both sides was classy and respectful of both teams. The clock had not even hit 0 when the previously classy fans changed into Jets fans in a second. They instantly became arrogant, ignorant and classless. After the game I noticed numerous Pats fans congratulating Giant fans on a game that our fans all agreed that your team deserved. The Giant fans wanted no part of being humble in any way. They were more happy to pound their chest and act like idiots. As a fan of a team that has been very successful recently and also went through numerous losing seasons I am well aware of how good it feels to win the big one. After seeing Strahan yesterday at the parade I now understand where the mentality to act like an idiot comes from. To Michael Strahan and all Giants fans here are the two most important things in sports.#1 - Learn how to lose.
#2 - Learn how to win.

Jim,
Get real. Whatever team you root for you're going to encounter fans like that. Don't confuse them with loyal fans. There is a difference. Just like all the arrogant Pat fans that I had to read on our blogs making ridiculous statements before the game. I'm sure the people you're talking about we're not the same you were partying with. In addition how can you single out Michael Strahan when you root for Bill Belichek. I mean serious, talk about arrogant, ignorant and classless.
