A while back I asked you to write essays about why you became a New York Giants' fan, particularly as it relates to your family. I promised at the time that the best of those would appear in the Maple Street Press 2010 Giants Annual which will hit newsstands next month.
I also promised that quality essays not used in the magazine would find space here at Big Blue View. Well, there was only room for two essays in the upcoming magazine. Frank Campagnola and John Acquavita (screen name Tony Manero) will have their essays in next month's Giants Annual.
There were, however, lots of good essays. It is time for me to keep that promise, and start publishing some of that work. During the course of the next few days I will publish several of the essays I received. The piece below comes from Patrick Feury, known at BBV as 'pjhimself.'
