    Funny thing is that sticking a thread basically kills it. It's like moving it to general sports.

      There's that Giants game in 2007 where they sacked McNabb 12 times in one game. That was memorable and near impossible to repeat at current times.

        Well, yeah, it's pretty hard to match/top. After all, that's the record for sacks in one game. Before we did it in '07, it hadn't been done since the Cowboys got 12 on the Houston Oilers in 1985. All in all, including us, it's only been done 5 times.

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.
          Wow ! That is a wonderful moment in time !!!! Good for you !!!!

              The 86 Game agains the Vikings where Simms hit Bobby Johnson on 4th and 17 for a first down to keep the winning drive going and allow Raul Allegre to kick the winning FG. After that game. I knew it was gonna be a special season. Just felt like destiny after winning that game.

                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
                OMG...maybe I hugged your Dad!!....

                I dug these up from my archives in the basement...

                    I was at SB25.... but that wasn't the best.
                    SB 21 was the most satisfying game ever.
                    SB 42 was an amazing feeling.
                    But, I have to agree with YA and Key... that 4th Qtr, and the celebration at the end of the '86 game against Washington was a great feeling. Finally, we were going to the dance.
                    Finally, the Giants were getting respect again.

                      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
                      I saw it on TV and like you said Giants Stadium was rocking, so much emotions flowing in that historical game. The Giants sealed their faith with destiny that night, no one or no body would come in their way to win their 1st SB.

                        For me its the 1990 NFC Championship Game against the 49'ers.
                        I remember the entire game like it was yesterday even more the words from Pat Summerall after the FG from Matt Bahr when through the uprights,
                        " There will be no three-peat " Still gives me goosebumps
                        WTH just for kicks lets see it again and again.

                          I have many favorites, all 4 superbowls and several more but the one that sticks out with me is the 90 nfc championship in Frisco.

                          the Reasons fake punt; LTs fumble recovery and the hit by Leonard Marshall make that my favorite of all time game.

                            great game man, this one was a classic because it was the year in which "Elite Eli" was claimed. he proved himself right and showed everybody that he's as good as tom brady by BEATING tom brady AGAIN in the superbowl. my favorite game would have to be giants versus patriots but its actually not either one of the superbowls, its week 17, the last game of 2007-2008 season where giants played perfect patriots and lost 37-34 but played their hearts out and played the best game of the season against the best team of the season and showed they could duke it out with the best of the best. this shifted all the momentum and made their playoff run so much sweeter because it changed their confidence
