Super Bowl XXV

It was 22 years ago today that the Giants won their second Super Bowl under Bill Parcells. The Giants came into Super Bowl XXV seven point underdogs to Jim Kelly and the Buffalo Bills at the "Big Sombrero" in Tampa.

With the country gearing up for the first Gulf War and American flags seemingly flying everywhere, Whitney Houston transcended the moment with a soaring rendition of the National Anthem. The game did not disappoint and is still the closest game in the history of the Super Bowl.

In his excellent book, First in Thirst: How Gatorade Turned the Science of Sweat Into a Cultural Phenomenon, Darren Rovell wrote about how the Giants first began doing the celebration in a section titled ?The Inaugural Dunk.? Amazingly enough, it began as somewhat of an act of aggression!

Adam Lazurus has written a new book about Super Bowl XXV, which was played as the country readied itself for war in the Middle East:

A new book -- "Super Bowl Monday: From the Persian Gulf to the Shores of West Florida: The New York Giants, the Buffalo Bills and Super Bowl XXV" -- revisits many intriguing subplots from both teams on their way to the Super Bowl. A big story line was how the two conference championships played out against the backdrop of the first Persian Gulf War, which was just getting underway.."
