Super Bowl Weekend & the NHL All-Star game
Super Bowl Weekend
The New England Patriots won their first Super Bowl and pulled off one mother of a big upset by beating the heavily favored St. Louis Rams 20 - 17. Adam Vinatieri booted a 48 yard field goal with no time left to win the game. Patriots' quarterback, Tom Brady, was named the game's MVP. For more on the game, click here.
