    [quote user="YATittle1962"][quote user="zimonami"]


    [quote user="YATittle1962"]ok fellas one just popped in to my head.

    in the mid '60s when Em Tunnell was coaching the Giants secondary , what was the nickname his guys (Spider Lockhart, Willie Williams, Clarence Childs, Henry Carr. ect.) aquired as a group?
    [/quote]




    I was baffled for a few seconds, and then it hit me... Emlin's Gremlins???




    [/quote]
    wow...nice call.![B]
    thats not one you hear about much........you kinda had to be there.

    who wore #80 during the 1990 season?
    [/quote]




    It is funny... how much I have forgotten, yet Emlin's Gremlins popped into my brain. You saying, "...his guys," was the tipoff. As soon as i thought Emlin... Grmelin jumped right in.I can't recall if I saw the reference in the paper, or on a CBS broadcast, but it stuck with me. Too bad school work doesn't stick as well

        Name the player with the most fair catches on punt returns in Giant history?




        [ yup it was Morral to Homer Jones 98 yard TD] Nice callZ and YA

        and the answer is?




        [/quote]




        Just cuz he did it the longest I can remember, Meggett




        [/quote]




        Very close Jints10.........just a little before Megget




        Side note: Sorry about Brad Van Pelt.......never got to tell you that and I knowhe was your favorite




        Great Giant my friend




        [/quote]




        With your hint, I have to agree with Zim and Y.A., McConkey




        We used to go see the players enter the Stadium on gamedays. We couldnt wait for Brad Van Pelt, he always made himself available to fans, signing autographs and answering questions. Brad was always a class act both on and off the field.

        you know who was like that?
        Andy Robustelli.

        One day after a game at Yankee stadium I guess around 62 or 63 we all went on the field like everyone would do in those days.
        I guess my dad and uncle got to talking to Robustelli and they asked if he would take a picture with me so Andy picked me up and sat me on his left shoulder.
        I have no memory of it but I do remember having the picture and hearing the story at every Thanksgiving and Christmas after.
        unfortunately over the years and lots of moves the picture has been lost or deeply misplaced for I have not seen it in years and years.
        Andy is a kind soul
        [/quote]




        Nice story...too bad you don't have the pics. Like when my grandfather gave me a ball autographed by all the '52 or '53 Dodgers, when I was 6-7. All my heroes were on that ball. When I was 10 - 11, we needed a ball for our sandlot games. We used it until the jacket was ripping off.




        My aunt knew Robustelli and always said he was a real nice man. In '58 - '60 she was good friends with the NYG Offensive line... had 6-8 of them over every Monday after a game for big stew dinners. Frank Youso had them chip in for a handmade wool Blue Blanket with the Old Yankee Stadium Logowith theQuarter Back over topin the center in red and white. I'm going to take a pic of it and use it in my sig, someday when I figure out how to do it. I could use it for my avatar, too. Right now I'm using a drawing my grand daughter drew.




        Now that Plax is back, we can concentrate on moving forward.




        An easy one, now that I mentioned a wide receiver...




        Who gets an assist for touching the ball before a Simms to McConkey TD in SB XX1?




        This question should require 1 second of thinking. I'll have to think of a tougher one soon.

          As soon as you said 70's, I remembered Ray Rhodes... wide receiver to DB.




          I still contend that **** Nolan is also a legit answer.

                                Why did the Giants stop selling field seats at Yankee Stadium in 1959?
