Super Bowl XLII: N.Y. Giants 17, New England 14
Let's face it: Boston isn't a front-running town. So things had probably been going too well for us in terms of sports in 2008 when the Giants pulled off the upset of the then 18-0 Patriots in the Super Bowl.

Either way, it was sweet revenge for the embarrassing way the Yankees lost to the Red Sox in 2004.
