Ticker-Tape Tuesday Tabs Treasury

So it seems like the NY Giants were victorious, either because of, or despite of, prayer.

In any event, modern society deems athletic victors worthy of a parade down the Canyon-of-Heroes.

Why those who win football games are granted hero status, while war veterans are denied the same honor, is a mystery that escapes me. Yet if one can peer through the confetti snowed down upon the SuperBowl Champions, if one can tread through the garbage strewn streets of Lower Manhattan, one can perhaps find a silver lining meaning to this madness.

According to the numbers crunchers, NY will actually make money for the treasury. An estimated 500,000 to 1 million fans will line the parade route, spending an average 23 dollars each.

So after all is said and done, NYC will be laughing all the way to the bank.


  1. to answer your question. there is something politically incorrect about the Military in general since the VietNam era. there is nothing politically incorrect about Football. Iraqi vets are baby killers to some. NFL players are not killers at all, except for Ray Lewis.

    I guarantee you that if the Eagles had won the Super Bowl that animal rights protesters would've clashed today with Igel boosters all along Broad Street.

  2. That's 2 football posts in a row. I await Musar from EJ. :-)

    1. which is the greater of the two evils; posting LH or posting about a pagan havdala oblivious ritual?

      I think that your/ our collective neshomos are safer with Super Bowl posts than with Frum Society Hock posts.

      Now be a pal and go retort to Evanston over at my place. I'm disappointed. I thought that the graphic alone would evince 10 comments. But I suppose that in he age of photo-shopping it is ho-hum.
