David Diehl And A Croatia Scarf At The Super Bowl

Well, now we know which Croatian is lifting the Vince Lombardi trophy this year as Super Bowl Champion. It was a close game that went down to the very last play. In the end it was the New York Giants who prevailed, which means David Diehl is the lucky one who gets another Super Bowl ring. After the game, I also found out that the  New England Patriots Defensive End Rob Ninkovich is also of Croatian descent. If you're not familiar with this story,  more background about David Diehl, his tattoos and Bill Belichick can be found HERE.

David Diehl Is The Croatian Connection To Super Bowl XLVI.



Wearing a scarf with Croatian coat of arms, New York Giant's David Diehl celebrated his team's Superbowl win against the Patriots. Diehl's mother is a Croatian and his father a German. The Giant's offensive guard was proudly showing off his Croatian heritage at the end of the game, displaying a scarf and a tattoo of the Croatian coat of arms.

This is Davids 2nd time being a Super Bowl champion.

Diehl was born in Chicago, Illinois. Fourth time in history, the players of New York Giants scored the Super Bowl title, this time winning against Patriots 21-17. Four years ago the two teams faced off for the trophy and again the Giants won in large part thanks to their Most Valuable Player, Eli Manning. Manning once again proved to be a nightmare for the New England Patriots and their star quarterback Tom Brady, daily 24 Sata writes.

David is also known for the many children's charities he has been involved with over the years:
