Football, with a personal touch...

I come from a younger generation of Giant fans being only 21 years old, but for as long as I can remember my life has been all Giants.  My father and his family were born and raised in the Bronx, and grew up die hard Giant fans.  Clearly I did not have a choice, weather it's the pictures of me from when I was 4 with a Phil Simms jersey on, or those Sunday afternoons as a child remembering my father screaming at guys like Dave Brown.  It was inevitable I love the Giants.  Me and my father would watch every game together, it was a ritual.  In 2006 he was diagnosed with lung cancer, the last football game we ever got to watch together was the 2007 NFC championship game on the fourth floor of a hospital.  It was not under the greatest circumstances, but I will never forget that game.  He passed just 12 days before super bowl 42, there was something inside of me that just knew we were taking that game and honestly I know at the end of the day its just a game, but its a game i that I love and its a game my father loved and winning that game helped me personally deal with a lot of things I was going through.  With another season on the cusp and my father no longer around I'm just glad I found a community like this, you helped build a great one Ed.  That 2008 season I watched almost every game alone and though I enjoyed it, it just wasn't the same.  Now I am a part of this community it is real nice to be able to express myself and talk to mostly educated Giant fans with that same undying passion I have and my father had.  This is a nice, fun place I can talk to Giant fans again and I just want to thank everyone who participates regularly, this site helped me out when I needed it.
