As nearly everyone in the United States knows, the New York Giants just beat the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl. The score was 21 to 17. Rifftides readers elsewhere may not understand why that is significant. The Super Bowl is the culmination of the professional football season. American football is not to be confused with what most of the world calls football, which is soccer or rugby. Here in the US, a great deal is made of this ultimate contest in the sport. This was the 46th such game. It was billed as Super Bowl XLVI, played in Indianapolis, Indiana, and carried by satellite to television viewers around the world. The halftime show featured an entertainer named Madonna and 3,247 other people on a stage that, amazingly, was twice the size of the stadium in which the show took place.
I don’t know whether the New York Giants have theme music, but this can serve as their victory song.
What music would I have used if the Patriots had won? Sauter-Finegan’s “Doodletown Fifers,” perhaps.
