In Nicaragua, it appears the New England Patriots did beat Giants in Super Bowl


February 15, 2008

MANAGUA, Nicaragua (AP) -- The New England Patriots won the Super Bowl and ended the season with a perfect 19-0 record -- at least it looks that way in Nicaragua.

The NFL donated 290 Patriots hats and an equal number of team jerseys trumpeting the slogans "Super Bowl Champions, 19-0" to impoverished children from two small communities in southern Nicaragua.

Thursday's gifts could not change history -- the Patriots lost the Feb. 3 game to the New York Giants 17-14 -- but they made a lot of youngsters in the communities of San Gregorio and Buena Vista very happy, said Miriam Diaz, spokeswoman for the humanitarian organization World Vision, which arranged the donation with the NFL.

"They (Patriots) lost, but the children won," Diaz said.

The only "football" most of the children know is soccer, but they were very enthusiastic about the U.S. version of the game once the rules were explained to them, she said.

"They were very happy to receive the hats and jerseys," Diaz said. "They said they did not expect such a surprise."

Neither did the Patriots.;_ylt=?slug=ap-nicaragua-patriotsvictory]original here

Hamels started toward the dugout after what he thought was a strike. Lincecum didn't get the call & buzzed ump Dana DeMuth w. a fastball that slammed off the backstop & then froze Hamels w. another 3rd strike. 4/28/10 Timmy the ump killer.

For a while now, it's been common practice to donate the pre-made championship clothing to impoverished countries....

So somewhere in Africa, there are tons of Buffalo Bills Super Bowl Champion shirts!

That is so wrong in so many ways. But I guess you have to do SOMETHING with 'em, eh? Heaven forbid they should make the custom shirts & hats AFTER the superbowl. I mean, we wouldn't want to lose all that valuable advertising revenue!
