The tweet from Canty was in response to the following from @JasonRomano (Jason Romano), who wrote: Send me your Super Bowl predictions that stink -- Closest to the score gets a copy of @ToddGongwer's new book "Lead for God's Sake." That prompted the following from @chriscanty99: Giants 28, New England 17.
Canty already had been responsible for perhaps the week's biggest controversy when he told a New York television station, "Get ready for a great game on Super Bowl Sunday, and get ready for a parade on Tuesday." The defensive lineman later said that he...
