Osi's currently in Hawaii for the Pro Bowl, where he's the only Giants member playing. "It sounds incredible. There's no better feeling than being world champions," Umenyiora said after the NFC's practice yesterday. "I'm a little sad that no teammates made it with me, but I'll represent for New York."
