It may be hard to believe but a survey has found that women think Giants quarterback Eli Manning will look better on High-Definition TV than Patriots quarterback Tom Brady - despite Brady's beefcake credentials as a certified hunk.
The survey is from Comcast Corp., the cable TV company, and the survey purports to shed light on Super Bowl viewing habits.
When asked who would look best in HD during Sunday's Super Bowl game, Brady was the most popular choice among six players, with 27 percent of the vote, Comcast said.
But when the results were broken down by gender, Manning edged out Brady among women respondents, 24 percent to 23 percent, Comcast said.
Brady is apparently a man's man; among male respondents, Brady topped Manning 31 percent to 23 percent, Comcast said.
Not that Pats fans care much about who wins the pretty-boy sweepstakes, just so long as Brady leads the locals to victory with a lights-out performance Sunday night and beats the Giants handsomely.
