And There Was Great Rejoicing

Words don't really do this video much justice, so we'll just say this: Moments after the Giants' Super Bowl win, emotions were running at a rather high level.

Thank you to our compatriots at whynatte.com for providing this footage. Also, please note the moment in the video when the celebrating man is warned by a concerned bar employee to be careful, and in responding to her, he seamlessly transitions to dancing with her, very nearly succeeding in getting her to commit 100 percent to the dance.

What a ballgame. If you didn't at least want to attempt a front handspring after that one, you're either a Patriots fan, or you need to have your circuitry checked.

Three quick thoughts:

1. That Eli Manning to David Tyree completion was one of the greatest pass plays of all time. The fact that Eli -- who looked about as mobile as a tranquilized rhino for most of the night -- somehow evaded that sack, and then that Tyree of all people pulled that ball off his own helmet while falling out of the air backwards was just unbelievable.

2. The Tom Brady third down throw on the ensuing Patriots drive that would have gotten to Randy Moss had it not been deflected was one of the greatest incompletions of all time. What a throw.

3. With apologies to both plays, they have nothing on Handspring Man's celebratory dance.

Best celebratory dance ever...Maybe best dance ever.

Jacob is a man among boys. I say we start a petition to bring him back to New York.
