N.O. nuns play role in Giants 'miracle'
Their medal provides divine intervention Thursday, February 07, 2008By Kevin Manahan
CHANDLER, ARIZ. -- As quarterback Eli Manning drove the New York Giants to a championship-winning touchdown in the final minute of Super Bowl XLII, television cameras peeked at nervous team President John Mara, reaching into his shirt pocket.

Pacing in a luxury suite at University of Phoenix Stadium, Mara was saying a silent prayer and running his fingers over a religious medal sent to him by a group of New Orleans nuns who are fans of New Orleans natives Eli and Peyton Manning.

On Monday, as the grinning, sleep-deprived Giants loaded their luggage and the Lombardi Trophy onto a team charter and flew home for a Manhattan victory parade, Mara chuckled when asked what had been in his pocket.  ;)
