Why, Times Square, of course!
I figured that’s where New Yorkers would go after beating Tom Brady’s New England Patriots, and I was right. In NYC for Monday’s Jazz-Knicks game, here are a few pictures I took while embedding myself amongst the city-bound celebrators for journalistic purposes:
This is what the Empire State Building looks like when it’s celebrating a Super Bowl victory. Wonder if the LDS Church Office Building will light up in Utah Jazz green, yellow and blue when SLC’s NBA team wins its first title.
A sure sign your city’s wild party has gone to the dogs.
A big crowd of happy people, some even aware a football game was played Sunday, gather in NYC. All sorts of chants broke out, a few even celebrating the Giants’ win instead of simply trashing the city of Boston and Tom Brady. My personal favorite: “U-S-A!” My least favorite: Ha. My boss, my mom or my wife would find out and I’d get in trouble.
This is how people from Down Under roll after American Rules Football. If you didn’t recognize him, this is Shep from Australia.
Now I feel silly. I forgot to ask Shep’s mate Ed if this is an Australian or American football.
Don’t worry. No wardrobe malfunctions occurred while I took a photo of this massive ad on a building. How timely to have Janet Jackson on display for Super Bowl Sunday.
This guy drove his car quickly through Times Square, hit the brakes and spun out. He then got out, did a funky victory dance and was soon joined by about 10 of New York City’s finest.
This is what a street sign looks like in New York City on Super Bowl Night. You’re welcome.
Jose got an early edition newspaper. I know his name’s Jose because his friend said “Jose!” and he turned around and posed for a photo for me even though I wasn’t taking pictures at the time. Ah, what the heck. I’m just happy somebody bought an actual newspaper.
Guess this settles it: The Giants are a Mickey Mouse team. Now, if you’ll excuse the leader of the pack, he’s got a Super Bowl party to host at Disneyland.
These guys were really happy, carrying a flag, hooting and hollering and holding up their foam fingers with pride. Couldn’t resist taking a pic.
