Yes, you read that correctly. Mets VP of Media Relations Jay Horwitz has been a New York Giants season ticket holder since 1963, which means he's seen a lot of the good and a lot of the bad over the years. We had the chance to ask Jay a few questions as we head into the big showdown with the Jets on Saturday:
Big Blue View: How long have you been a Giants fan, and what are your top two or three memories of them?
Jay Horwitz: I have been a Giants fans since 1956. I have had season tickets since 1963. Phil Simms' 22-25 against Denver in the Super Bowl; the Patriots' Super Bowl game; and YA Tittle throwing seven TD passes against the Redskins, I believe in the early 1960's.
BBV: How do you think the last two games of the season will play out?
JH: I think the Giants will rise up and beat both the Jets and the Cowboys, and get into the playoffs. Look for a big game for Eli.
BBV: Being an employee of the Mets for so many years, do you remember anything specifically about when the Jets played at Shea?
JH: I wasn't much of a Jets fans so I didn't pay much attention. I only remember they opened on the road a lot so they wouldn't conflict with us.
BBV: Do you think Eli Manning should receive MVP consideration this year and why or why not?
JH: Eli should certainly be considered for MVP Really, no one has been better in the fourth quarter. He has proven he is one of the Elite QB's in the league.
BBV: Prediction for the game this Saturday?
JH: Giants 31, Jets 24
I like that prediction. How about you guys?
