  • NFL Players You've Met.

    There's a lot of Giant's greats that I've always wanted to meet...Simms, Bavaro, LT to name a few. The only NFL players I've met are Jason Witten and Bobby Carpenter...sad, I know. What are some players you've met, and how?

    As a kid, in the 1950's, I met Andy Robustelli and Sam Huff. My mother's father lived in Mattituck, Long Island, NY. Every summer we'd vacation there for a few weeks and my father would commute out on the weekends. On one of those rare occasions where we went out to eat, we went to a Marina on the Mattituck Inlet. Standing at the bar in the restaurant were these two men who my father and older brother immediately recognized as Robustelli and Huff.

    My Dad went over to them to just say Hi and we all spent about 45 minutes in their company just talking about whatever. They were both very down to earth and never showed any interest in ditching us lol

    That's when I became a fan of the New York Football Giants.

        I met Harry Carson once on the streets of Cleveland before a preseason game my buddy and I went to a few years ago. He was nice and gracious as was I. I didn't take too much of his time, but it was great to shake hands with a Hall of Famer.
