A little perspective on rooting for a football team. A good read to break the Eli, Peyton, Phil cycle. If you know who Steve Gleason is, this is his piece from today's N.O. Times-Picayune. If someone finds it worthwhile, maybe they'll turn the URL into a link for me.

Done and good article.

Football (and entertainment venues that we like in general) is why we do things like work, raise families, fight for our country, etc ...

This is the stuff we live for.

<FONT color=#000080 size=4><FONT color=#000000 size=3>its true for me. When the Giants win I feel like I won something. Like I am the winner and my friends are winners. When the Giants lose, especially a big game, I feel like a loser. Like I lost. When I go into work the next day people aske me..."so what happened to "your" Giants". We as die hard fans take on the resposibility of the teams success and failure even though we have 0 to do with on a personal level. In masse at the stadium we have a degree of input to the game and getting the players pumped I guess. </FONT></FONT></P>
