PYMWYMI – Giants Will Win..UPDATE… Giants Win!

Posted by AGORACOM at 9:08 PM on Saturday, February 2nd, 2008

Despite the fact they crushed my season by taking out my Dallas Cowboys, I am calling the Giants to not only cover the spread but win the Super Bowl outright. It’s called PYMWYMI – Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is – and I’ve done it in this video here.

I’m not a Patriot hater – I think Brady is the coolest guy on the planet – but momentum is clearly on the side of the Giants. They’ve gotten better every week through the playoffs, while the Pats have been less than impressive in their wins.

FYI – I’ll be watching the game from the Waldorf in New York where AGORACOM is sponsoring Money:Tech, a conference that brings together the best of Web 2.0 and finance. How good is this conference shaping up to be? Chris Anderson, Editor-In-Chief over at Wired Magazine said:

“Money:Tech is the first conference I’ve seen in years that I feel I absolutely must attend.”

In the meantime, if when the Giants win, I’ll have a first hand view of the biggest party in the Big Apple in years.

UPDATE: Sunday, 9:10 PM EST – Giants Up 10 – 7 with 11:30 to go in Q4.

UPDATE: Sunday, 10:10 PM EST – Giants Win! My straight up bet pays 5-1.

UPDATE: Sunday, 10:30 PM EST – I’m going for a walk.

UPDATE:  Monday 12:45 AM EST – I’m back from Times Square and it was fun!

    The funny thing is that a story about this very topic came out on Saturday!

    I don’t go out on the limb like that very often but my gut was throwing all the data out the window and telling me that heart was going to win this Super Bowl. The Giants had it … the Patriots lost it long ago when they were running up the score on teams.

    By the way, the odds of a Giants win outright? 5-1

    The problem with PYMWYMI is that with a game like last night you might never be able to use your winnings because you might have a heart attack during the game. =)
