My dad was and still is a very loyal Jets fan. I don't know exactly how I came to like the Giants, but I think it had something to do with #56.

Back in the mid to late 60's when I was a young kid, my dad became friends with Rosie Brown. Rosie would send home Giants memorabilia for me and that is when it all began.

Started when Giants lost to Green Bay in 1961 and 1962// for those who remember blackout for home games. Had to travel out to Long Island in order to watch home game on Connecticut stations.

I have been a giants fan since the phil simms and lawerance taylor era! The ways those guys played back then just really impressed me and I have been a fan ever since. I will be a giants fan till I die. Probably going to have to bury me in a giants jersey.

I've always been a fan. My dad was a G-Men fan and he passed it on to me. It's as simple as that.

Me 2. Unfortunately for me, he was also a Mets fan :eek:

I was born in 1961, but mostly watched baseball when I was young. Got into the Gints in the '80's

2004. I was never into football until I was 19. My ex's dad loved the Giants and I would watch games at their house. Been a die hard ever since.

I am upset this year at the way it's ending up with the lack of effort these past two games especially after the way we played vs SF, GB and Saints.. But who am I to complain when this team gave us 2 SBs within 6 years. Some teams have never won one and others have never even been there.. So I'm happy. And who knows maybe we get a belated Christmas Present today

1993 was the first season I really remember getting big into football. I loved that team, still my favorite Giants team ever. We drafted Strahan and Armstead that year (!)

Fan since the mid 60's. Not quite old enough to remember YA Tittle and those teams that seemed to lose to the Packers in the championship every year. From then until LT and Phil Simms came on the scene, it was pretty much one miserable season after another. I was bouncing off the walls when we finally made the playoffs in 1981, for the first time in my memory. Then Super Bowl XXI fughedabouttit!! I was dancing in the streets of Bristol, RI! This year's disappointments aside, the Coughlin era has been a pretty good ride. We've been in playoff contention pretty much every year up until the end. The two Super Bowls have been really sweet, especially since I live in Patriots country. :

GO GIANTS
GO PACKERS
GO LIONS
GO 'SKINS!

It isn't over 'til it's over.

Since 1950. We owned the Browns during the season. But we couldn't score (a td) against them in the play off game. But I was hooked on Steve Owens and his ability to spit a stream of tobacco at opposing players coming near him on the sideline.

Day I was born.... my fathers best friend (till this day), my "Uncle", intercepted a N VanBrocklin pass and ran it back for a 70 yard TD!

That's how I was brought into this GIANT world!!

I began listening to the G-Men (yes listening!!!) on the radio with my father in 1947! He had become a die-hard Giants fan during WWII when he was stationed at the Brooklyn Navy Yard at the end of the war! He and buddies would go to the Polo Grounds and watch the G-Men play! When I was seven he and I would listen to the games till we got our first "large screen" TV ( 9 inches) and could watch the games! My father took me to my first game at Yankee Stadiun December 30,1956 where I saw the G-Men crush the Bears 47-7. Been a life-long fan and bleeding blue for now 65 years!!!!! Seen the good, the bad and the ugly during that time but never wavered from my loyalty to the team!
