TV cameras still love even the new Tom Coughlin

Merrick's own Artie Kempner, Fox's game director for Super Bowl XLII, says even in his somewhat mellowed out phase, Tom Coughlin remains TV gold for reaction shots.

"He's still a great picture,'' Kempner said. "He still reacts and emotes to almost any situation. For a TV guy he is the immediate reaction you go to after a big play."

Kempner grew up a Jets fan, primarily because his family couldn't get Giants tickets. But his father was and is a Giants fan. He lives in Florida and watched the Giants-Bucs playoff game from the Fox booth, but opted for watching on TV this weekend.

"He said it's better on television, because his son is doing it,'' Kempner said.
