  • Anxiety has set in...

    I know I am heading towards another sleepless night. I am sure by 5:00 am I will be wide awake with my stomach turning. I could never understand the psychology behind being an NFL football fan that drives one to the point of being sick. I endured this feeling last year at this very time and many times this year.

    I am sure to be at my favorite Sunday watering hole by 1:00 pm and get my day started with a shot of Wild Turkey just to take the edge off. Is there anyone else out there that their significant other wants them OUT of the house on game day?

    Defense please play in the backfield and Offense control the clock.


    GO BLUE!!!

    Except for the drinking part, I've got it too. My wife just doesn't understand.

      Being a Giant Fan is Like being on a Drug ! If they Win your High for that Week....on the other hand if they Lose, It ruins your whole week ! I could go on and on. Lets hope they Win......Because if they don't, there will be many Giant Fans, who will be depressed, me being one of them !

        We are repeating our routine from last year week 16, local bar with about 100 of our friends. I get it. Hopefully it all comes together tomorrow as it did last year against the Jets.
        No one remembers who came in second.

          Eventually you will outgrow it once you figure out that the coaches and the players do not give a rat's *** as long as they have guaranteed money coming in. After all mediocrity is the norm with this team. Once in a while they make a great run and then they shut it off for some reason. You never know which team will show up any given Sunday, so why take years of your life? If you set your expectations low then you only have the occational emotional high. So relax. After all they are always having a great practice.

            I hope you are right, but I am afraid that the Ravens are nothing like the Jets.

              burying nomes would also help
              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!!!

                hey my Christmas is back up and we made a tremendous run with it up last yr. still had it up for SB and people thought I was crazy to still have it up in feb. but I refused to give in to my wife. Wound up having to take down all the Christmas decorations by myself with no help from my wife she was so disgusted with me. But it was well worth it

                  I hate working nights! I wish the game was at 1 so I could watch it. 10AM Pacific is only 2 hours after I get off my 12 hour shift and gives me enough time to watch the game and get some sleep for work the next day. Stupid night shifts!

                    Yep, the Giants' players are sleeping sound and only the fans are having issues.
