Super Bowl an ad for UMass

At the risk of sounding like a shameless homer, I hope the Patriots win the Super Bowl, but if not then I hope Victor Cruz catches the winning touchdown pass for the Giants.

Cruz is a Jersey boy, but he went to UMass Amherst and he’s forever a Minuteman. He also happens to be a great kid, as is Patriots safety James Ihedigbo, another UMass guy who during the offseason helps poor kids in Nigeria, where his parents were born.
