    Favorite game: Super Bowl 42. If you don't know about that game, then either go watch it or turn in your Giants fancard...

    Aside from that: The 2011 game in Dallas. Everything seemed lost with about 5 minutes to go and down 12. Eli pulls us back out and then the most epic defensive (well, more specifically ST) play of all time with that JPP field goal block to secure victory. I knew we were destined for bigger things when I saw that play.

    I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

      2006 Season Week 2. Crazy comeback vs Eagles.

        My first one had to be the 1986 NFC Championship, for the reasons stated already - truly surreal. But a close number 2 was the 2007 Championship versus the Pack. There is simply NOTHING like subzero football when it's ALL on the line. For Eli and Plax to play the way they did in those conditions, and for Tynes to make that impossible FG in OT when he'd missed two shorter GFs earlier .... Overcoming those conditions made it truly unique and special. Number 3, the 1988 Sunday night game versus the Saints - possibly the fiercest defensive battle I've ever seen - sacks, forced fumbles, and turnovers all over the place. Number 4, 1990 NFC Championship where Leonard Marshall KOed Joe, and a buzzer beater FG - another fierce defensive battle. I've always liked conference championship games better than SBs. They are even more intense.

              I wouldn't say its my favorite, but its definitely up there. I feel it has to be mentioned since no one said this one yet:

              Broncos @ Giants 2005. Eli throws the game winning TD to Toomer with 5 seconds to go in the 4th quarter. FANTASTIC GAME

                If you have a link to that game, please post it. Eli was money in the 4th and OT after getting beat up for literally the whole game. I believe he took 7 sacks.

                  For me, just because what it mean to me personally(1st yr as diehard GIant fan, didn't grow up with my dad, and watched it with him and his brothers(uncles), who all are the reason I started liking NYC teams to begin with, and I still looked up to them because I was only 9, and the magical way we did it, ending with WIDE RIGHT, it'd have to be SUPER BOWL XXV GIANTS 20 - BILLS 19.. The way it ended, and seeing my uncles and dad jump around the way they did, is forever etched in my mind, making this one, easily my fave GMEN game, and it came at such a young age.lol

                    debris flying through the air, strangers hugging strangers, grown men with tears in their eyes holding each other like the war was over,

                    it was a beautiful day
                    YUP..one of those things that's hard to describe. Just simply magical. The wind, every thing flying in the air. I left so much stuff at my seat (back then you could actually bring stuff in) as I ran around the ring hugging all...what a night.
                    I have a photo of my black Ford Escort as the very 1st car in the lot. My brother and I got there so early, the security folks had to ask us to leave the parking lot to get in line at the payment booth....that's where I got the photo. If I can, I will dig it out of my Giants archives and post it.

                      You can't top beating a 18 - 0 team in the SB. You just can't!
                      Players come and go on the Free Agency Merry-Go-Round, but the N.Y. Giants will always be here!

                        I was in my 30s as was my brother and we were with our father who was around 60 at the time ....he was at the game in '56

                        to be going back to the big dance was very emotional for him.... that was the only time I ever saw my father cry

                        I remember all the debris in the air ... looked like toilet paper and all sorts of wrappers.... I also have a vision of the field carpet having lots of big wet spots on it .... that old horrible carpet

                        that whole 4th quarter was a party .... even the security was celebrating

                        I had never felt that before at a game... and have not felt it since....

                        there was something magical in the air

                        I also remember being at the game and hearing that Denver had beat the Browns.... and I knew that very second that we were going to hammer them .... I just knew it

                          Those kinds of memories are pretty darned wonderful YA.

Not the Giants going, but I was going to the SB. My father and I agreed that when the Giants made it back to the big game, we would go together but unfortunately he died of cancer in 2006. I bought a ticket before even thinking about who I would go with and share the experience with so I bought a single ticket on the 40 in the 30th row.

                            I ended up going to the SB with a friend (pats fan) but we didn't sit together. When I got to my seat I found out I was sitting right next to Dave Diehl's mom, wife and brother! Dave's dad died the year before as well so it was emotional for all of us. Right before the big play I said a prayer to my dad and the very next play was Tyree...I literally cried!

                            The rest is history. When the game ended, I went down on the field with the Diehl family and Dave signed my Jersey. Greatest sports experience in my life.
                            That is tough to top!

                              Actually I was there and will second every one of your observations.
                              I was there, it was an amazing experience

                                UGH, I want a post stickied.


                                One day, I'll meet Roanoke and make a thread about it. Stick-bound.
