Who opened the can of whup-[***] on conventional wisdom? The Patriots were undefeated going into the Super Bowl, but the Giants and Eli Manning suited up anyway.

Going into primary season, pundits practically bequeathed the Democratic nomination to Hillary Rodham Clinton, but now Barack Obama has won 11 straight contests. Even canines couldn't catch a break when poodles and spaniels, traditionally top dogs at Westminister, were beaten out by a 15" tall beagle whose Vegas odds were 400-1.
