After this weekend’s NFL play offs the Giants and Patriots will indeed be facing each other in the Super Bowl next month. Some comments over at Digg have correctly noted that the scene is set in 2009 but, despite being a year off, the coincidence is still a bit spooky.

UPDATE: On the subject of the Giants-Packers game it seems Eddie Murphy predicted it 20 years ago in Coming to America ๐Ÿ˜‰
