Deadspin's article read like an obituary. "..It was believed to be 41..."

Lmao, this has to be one of the funniest articles I have read in a while. You gotta love the NYT excellent writers. Gilbride really does look out of place without the stache.

I heard from a pretty reliable source that it was his mustache that used to whisper in his ear to run the shotgun draw repeatedly.

So, while this is heartbreaking news, this end up being a blessing in disguise for NYG.

it came off during pre season

this is not meant to be breaking news

KG- "What do you think Eli? I photo shopped a few pics of my projected appearence when I shave my stache. You think it looks good? Should I do it?"

ELI- "Coach, shouldn't you be giving me the play so I can get it off before the play clock is at 1?"

KG- "This is more important!"

in recent years Ron has become somewhat of a cult icon due to reality TV and what not .....so no real G rating needed I think

I am really, really proud of you guys. I mean four whole pages in and not one serious mention, not even an implication that this is the reason for the loss to Dallas and will begin some sort of apocolyptic slide into our first losing season iin years.

I mean really, bravo people, I have been lurking these boards for years and never thought I would see this day.

By the way isn't it a bit of a coincidence that caterpillars are becoming butterflies at this time of year? Fly away little butterfly...fly away........

LOL LOL LOL.....

I can't Get a picture out of my mind-Buddy Ryan waiting outside of the Giants coaches parking lot waiting for Gilbride ready to punch him in the mouth. And then after he punches him I see Buddy saying "I told you I would be back." and then he starts running away from the police.

They left off the year range. KG needs a sticker for his car like that. I wonder if you put this on Victor Cruz's facebook page or whatever if they would make him one.
