A look at some of the stranger bets available for gamblers to wager on during the Super Bowl.
There was a time in the history of the Super Bowl when people simply bet on who was going to win the game. But why bet on something so boring as to the actual outcome of the championship when you can bet on how long it will take Alicia Keys to sing the National Anthem? It used to be that the tried and trusted box pool was the staple of any Super Bowl party wagering. But the rising popularity of prop bets allow people to wager on everything that could occur during the game, from who wins the coin flip to the over/under on how many yards Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta will have on his first reception. And there are, of course, options to bet on what color of Gatorade will be dumped on the winning coach and whether any player will …

Hundreds of thousands flock to New York to fete Super Bowl winners
Check out the gallery above to see photos from Tuesday's Ticker Tape parade in New York City, celebrating the Giants' victory in Super Bowl XLVI. Hundreds of thousands of fans flocked to the Canyon of Heroes in downtown Manhattan to ring in New York's latest championship. Paper flew from buildings, fans tossed toilet paper rolls back and forth over Broadway Avenue, and the Giants rolled by with smiles as they ended at City Hall to accept keys to the city from Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Dick's has been getting shipments of New York Giants Super Bowl merchandise since last night.
As soon as the game was over, the the Giants were crowned Super Bowl Champions following a 21-17 win over the New England Patriots, Dick's Sporting Goods was there. The store opened its doors as soon as the game was over on Sunday, then reopened at 6 a.m. Monday. While they started out with a full inventory of T-shirts, hats and sweatshirts, the shelves quickly emptied. Fortunatly, the story will be getting shipments all day.
The debate continues.
It's an argument that's been boiling over since 1976–or, at least since the Giants started winning Super Bowls. Where to hold the victory parade? The Canyon of Heroes, as is the traditional place a New York-based sporting team takes its victory lap (the G-Men are set to walk down at 11 a.m. Tuesday), or in New Jersey, where the newly-crowned Super Bowl champion team has actually been located for 36 years? It's hotly-debated, so much so Gov. Chris Christie has been calling them the "New Jersey" Giants. What do you think? Should it be exclusively in New Jersey? New York? Or, can football fans from both sides of the border agree that the Giants are both states' teams? Chime in below.

Wilmington, Mass. Patch editor Matt Schooley thinks he knows so much. He made this video for his readers—this very detailed video—about why the New England Patriots are going to stomp all over the New Jersey (sigh, fine ... New York) Giants at the Super Bowl this weekend. As if. You're a fan. You know what's at stake. It's Eli vs. Brady. Belichick vs. Coughlin. New England vs. New York/New Jersey. Again. We all know what happened last time these two faced off in the Super Bowl. And we know those Patriots fans in New England are still devastated by their perfect season ending ... well ... not so perfectly. What a shame that was, huh? So let's do what fans do — show our support for the Giants. Show your support by hitting "upload photos and …

Sports is about much more than games. It’s about how we celebrate our teams, obsess over athletes, recite statistics and even party. It can dictate what we wear, where we vacation and even who we marry. On Sunday, the New York Giants face the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl. So as we count down the hours and recount the improbable, plucky run by the Giants, it’s also time to celebrate our fandom. Everyone has that fan-tastic story: Did you name your son Eli (or Tiki), get a helmet tattoo on your neck or paint your RV Big Blue? Maybe you’re a fourth-generation season ticket holder or proposed to your girlfriend at halftime. Tell us your stories of ultimate New York Giants fandom. Or show us by uploading a photo.
