It's not the Red Sox and the Yankees, but the upcoming Super Bowl has once again divided Connecticut between those with sports ties to New England and New York.
In New Britain, Khalid Tawfik, the owner of Roma's Sports bar plans to split his establishment in half on Super Bowl Sunday, keeping Patriots fans in one half of the room, and Giants fans in the other. He says there will also be a police officer there, just to make sure peace is kept.
The city has links to both organizations, after all. The Giants played one of their earliest games there in October, 1925, winning 26-0 against a local professional team. And the high school team is coached by a former Patriot. Tebucky Jones was a defensive back on the team's first Super Bowl-championship team in 2002, and says he'll be rooting hard for New England.
The city's mayor, Tim O'Brien, says he's proud of Jones. But he'll be supporting the Giants.
