GIANTS' SUPER BOWL XLVI DVD WITH COMPLETE PLAYOFF BROADCASTS ON SALE TUESDAY
" try to keep this blog as objective and commercial-free as possible but I
know folks have been very anxious about when the Giants' Super Bowl XLVI DVD
with the complete network broadcasts of the playoff games would be
I finally have your answer: Next week.
NFL Films and Vivendi Entertainment have announced "New York Giants: Road to
XLVI" on DVD ($39.99) and Blu-Ray ($49.99) will go on sale on Tuesday.

A bunch of celebs and Giants teammates (as well as NBA players and other NFL
stars, such as former Giant and former Notre Dame teammate of Tuck's Ryan Grant)
showed up at Slate in Manhattan to support Tuck's event.
"My wife and I are very passionate about education and kids," Tuck said of
his charitable organization. "And we felt as though, in order to have a great
education, you have to have a background, you have to have a foundation. You ask
anybody about foundations of educational success, it starts with reading and
"We enjoy reading and enjoy writing. It's something we're passionate about
and we've put all of our efforts to that."
