  • Many Giants fans in New England: Worcester Ma & CT articles.

    Lots of fans in area for both Super Bowl teams

    Worcester (MA) Telegram

    At the Worcester, Mass. YMCA:

    "The idea to give gifts to members who wore Patriots gear from Friday to
    Sunday was changed to include people wearing Giants garb, Ms. Moquin

    And former Giant LB Pat Hughes comes to the Giant defense:

    "Employees yesterday were allowed to wear Giants jerseys, “or whatever
    that other team's name is,” said Mr. Hughes, who recalls returning to
    the area to play the Patriots at Harvard Stadium.

    If Mr. Hughes hadn't played for the Giants, it's likely he'd
    still be pulling for them. He's among many New Englanders who grew up
    watching the Giants
    before the Patriots existed in 1960.

    “Obviously my loyalties are there (with the Giants) — both from a
    youngster growing up in Everett,” he said. “That was really the team
    that we had. The magic of that great Giants-Colts game in '58, called
    arguably one of the greatest games ever played, that's where I truly
    fell in love with the Giants.”

    The ability to follow that forward and play seven seasons with the Giants was “just a dream come true,” he said.


    Full article. BTW, the Giants won that game at Harvard Stadium 16-0. Fran Tarkenton was QB.
