BARNWELL, S.C. (AP) -Former President Bill Clinton will pull for the New York Giants in their Super Bowl matchup against the undefeated New England Patriots.
``They're the underdog and they're my home team. But I'm glad the Patriots are undefeated and I'm glad that teamwork from both teams is back at the center of professional sports,'' Clinton told about 400 people Thursday in an elementary school auditorium as he campaigned for wife Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Clinton at first joked he wouldn't answer the question when asked by a member of the crowd during a campaign stop because ``New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island are Hillary's three best states.''
He said it also was a tough decision to make because he plays golf with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and considers him a friend and ``remarkable man.''
