You might see the same thing in the Pats locker room. (Giants.com)
By Will Brinson

INDIANAPOLIS -- There are hundreds of preparations that go along with the Super Bowl. Hats and t-shirts are made, speeches are written and interstitial ads on websites are created. In the case of Giants.com, that ad was accidentally placed live on the site a touch early. Like, today.

If you visited Giants.com during the day on Saturday, you might have seen this ad, which gave you the option to represent your team strat via social media, shop for championship gear or just continue on to the site.

"It is common practice for both teams to create web pages in advance of the conference championship games and Super Bowl," the NFL said in a statement. "In this case, the hidden URL for the page was inadvertently available for a brief period of time while it was being positioned on the NFL server for possible post tomorrow night."

Fortunately, this is the Internet age and someone snapped up a picture of the mistake. That's precisely what this is -- every team in the Super Bowl would create the same ad (you best believe the Patriots have one ready) but someone at the Giants website turned it live too early.

And now it's going to be a motivational tool for Bill Belichick and a perceived slight at the Patriots.

It's not, but that's how it's going to look.

Okay, apparently they've run out of stories. This is what happens when there are two weeks before the "Big Game". That said, I find it both a) funny and b) only a matter of time. Hope the guy responsible had his resume updated. If the Pats need this for motivation, they're in worse shape than I thought.

GO GIANTS!!!

people are going to hate on new england just because tom brady is a rediculous quarterback. he won the other 3 and deserves another one. if peyton only has one, eli definately doesn't deserve 2. but of course the giants will win because they have a stellar defense, like always.

TYPICAL NEW YORK ARROGANCE!  THis is how NY rolls and it makes them even more dispised by everyone.
I dont despise them, I bet if you took a poll more people despise  New England   than the Giants.....


Its all good....
Fast track at Indy = advantage Giants I dont think NE can handle the overall team speed...Brady gets battered into his poorest Sb showing yet.....Belichick stomps off the field in a hissy fit

HMD

- seriously? Some techie at a website posts an ad they weren't supposed to and you use that as an excuse to call all of New York arrogant? And New Yorkers are despised by everyone? You're clueless.

Wow, I wish I got paid to write about nonsense. So some fool pushed "publish" too soon. Who cares! This is why this guy Will "Intern" Brinson is in his cubicle writing about nothing and the real journalists are at the game.
