WAMC's Daily Sports Wrap


Albany, NY – Well there's no score in Super Bowl 46, in fact the championship game doesn't get underway until Sunday evening, but the Giants and Patriots have both touched down in Indy...

The NFC champion Giants arrived yesterday in Indianapolis, one day after the AFC champion Patriots hit town. Giants safety Antrel Rolle says the Giants wouldn't have boarded the plane if they didn't expect to win. Meanwhile, the Patriots held their first practice in Indy yesterday - tight end Rob Gronkowski did not participate due to a high left ankle sprain he suffered last week against Baltimore. Officially he's listed day-to-day.
