| MORE ABOUT ME...|
I am a Giants fan because:
I have been a Giants fan my whole life and my Grandpa was a lifelong Giants fan. We've had season tickets for 50 years or so in the family. (of course, next year we might lose them which makes me very sad)
My favorite player is:
Other teams I like: I like a lot of other teams as long as they don't interfere with the Giants.
The best word to describe me is: passionate (or crazy)
My hero(es): Anyone who goes out on a limb/takes risks to make a big difference that wouldn't have happened otherwise is a hero: examples are Obama, Bono, Oprah, my mom, my dad, my grandpa, Harry Carson, George Martin, Warrick Dunn, Lance Armstrong, cancer survivors
My superpower is: The New York Football Giants
My most fan-obsessed moment: Everything pretty much stops when anything Giants come on. People think I am absolutely nuts. But as far as obsessed, I started the Green Bay game last year standing up - so I had to watch the game standing up for fear that the Giants would lose if I sat down! It's this way for most games - my superstitions about the way I watch my games are pretty insane! I don't much care.
What else you should know about me: I am a HUGE fan of the team dynamic Tom Coughlin created in 2007-8 starting with himself. I think he is a huge representation of leadership that I hope I can emulate.
I am happy to talk about most anything football-related and definitely am proud that I am a non-stereotype who definitely has something to say about all 32 teams. I also truly believe I could help Goodell and company expand the NFL market in several areas and to new demographics.
