New York Football Giants: 85 years...

Since no one seems to have mentioned this yet, let me be the first to pose the question:  2010 will mark the Giants' 85th year in the NFL- why isn't this receiving any attention or notoriety?

With the Giants moving into their new stadium in 2010, and with criticism swirling around their defense's poor performance the year before, New York's 85th anniversary might be on the back-burner.  Nevertheless, this been nagging at me for a while, so I'm posting it now. 

The League recognized the 50th anniversary of the AFL (a year early) last season, equipped with commemorative patches on the certain teams' jerseys and throwback games all season long.  Maybe it seems premature to commemorate 85 seasons since the Giants just acknowledged 80 seasons back in 2004, but still.  New York is one of the oldest franchises in the League, a league that presently wouldn't be in such a strong position if it wasn't for the Giants and the Mara family.  85 years doesn't happen everyday, or overnight, so I think it be fitting that the Giants do something to commemorate 85 years in 2010, just as they are opening their new diggs.

What would be more amazing then to see the Giants running out onto their new field, the first week of September wearing their 1980s/90s uniforms?
