      Re: What's Your Giants Ritual?

      I watched all four playoff games w/ my father during the 2007 run. Something I'll never forget. I'm thinking of driving down to watch the game w/ him Sunday.

      My mother has been watching my father watch football for over 30 years and still doesn't care about the games.

        [quote user="giantfanatic"]I tune in Papa and Banks - turn off the Fox or whatever audio and get the game audio a few seconds before the play. I like knowing what is going to happen when the ball is snapped. It has cut down on the anxiety.
        I also message during the game via the Official Game Day Thread. Try to stay positive, but some of the posters are a hilarious and it also cuts down on the anxiety.[/quote]
        Really? If I knew the plays before they happened I would kill myself, thats such a spoiler.

        I used to watch the game while I chat with my buddy over xbox live and he would totally ruin it because I was streaming the game online so I was delayed since he was watching it on TV. I'd be watching the guys coming out of the huddle and my buddy yells "Pick!" and I'd be so pissed off lol.

          [quote user="RugDaniels"]I have a certain shirt that I only bring out for big games. I also have Giants shirts that I retire for the season once they've seen more than one loss...

          Anyone else have a routine for watching the Giants or something they bring out only when the Giants need the extra juice?

          Before the Atlanta game I found the only working VCR in my house and popped in my well worn copy of 'Giants Among Men'. It's an NFL Films production and commerates the legendary 1986 season and Super Bowl XXI.[/quote]
          Sit in same spots, lay out certain giants jerseys in certain spots. Three other things going now that I can't say anything about cause I dont want to jinx it. All three working. Have not lost since. Will let u know after we win SB
          Football has been very, very good to us.
          After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
          But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

          # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

          1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
          2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
          3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
          4-New York Giants!!!
          5-NE
          Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

            I'm basically just standing while anticipating defensive plays, pacing around back and forth, a lot of jumping around, high 5's with my brother, lot's of yelling and screaming and waking up my mom and annoying our neighbours (perhaps the entire neighborhood)

              Re: What's Your Giants Ritual?

              I have 6 Giants Jerseys -
              One is a Lawrence Taylor Superbowl 25 throwback and authentic
              3 Superbowl 42 authentic superbowl jerseys (white on red trim). An Eli, Osi, and Buress jersey. My other two are regular Strahan & Eli blue jerseys.
              Now, if I am not screaming during the entire game, I usually start wearing a strahan jersey - because more often than not, for some reason that gives the team luck(no, I am not superstitious). If after a couple of plays and things aren't going right, I switch to an Osi shirt. If we are winning I don't switch throughout the remaining game, but if things are tight, I go to an Eli shirt (blue first). So, in other words, I usually rotate jerseys and never go back to the same one - obviously I watch at home a lot. If I am out, I just stick with the jersey I am wearing. Ironically, I don't have a favorite, somehow just before the game I choose one and start with that. I know, this is a sad ritual . . .but it works for me.

                No matter what I try, I can't seem to correlate anything I do with the outcome of the game. Can you believe that? But when I do figure it out, the Giants will never ever lose another game as long as I live. I'll abuse the **** out of that juju.

                  been wearing my away Eli jersey for all away games, and Tuck home blue jersey for all home games. (was working during the Jets couldn't wear a jersey)
                  But with the recent wins, and defense stepping it up, i think i am going to wear Tuck again this week. I also went to last two games at the stadium, wearing my Giants snow hat. Gonna be hot inside, but i may wear that as well.

                  Also, i haven't shaved since a few days before the cowgirl game. Really itchy, but i will GLADLY grow it til February, pending a couple of wins.

                    I noticed this year that our record when wearing any of my jerseys (Eli, Strahan, or Jacobs) was 5-7. Anytime I might of forgot to put it on and only had on my Giants boxers (don't tease!) we went 4-0. Obviously, I haven't wore my jerseys in awhile.

                          I toy around with different outfits to see how the games go.. Since the Jets game, I've worn brown PJ pants (not sure why..), Giants socks, Giants t-shirt with a Giants fleece over top and a random pair of boxers... and it's doing well so far!

                            Amen! I made a radio vs TV thread a while back and this is why I listen to the radio to. No delay. And I love going by the crowd because they see it first. So if we're home and I hear the crowd go nuts before the announcer I know they see something. Vice versa for when on the road, like today.

                                At Thanksging, my sister gave me a carl banks signed game jersey, that she bought, of all places, at a new england pats fund raiser auction.
                                Started wearing it before Jets game
