I was resetting passwords earlier when I received an email from a fan. I won't identify who she is, but she said we could post the body of her email here.
"My grown son is going through a really hard time right now. He lost his job a few months ago and is having a hard time finding another one. He has been depressed for a while. Yesterday, I talked him into going to the camp at Albany U. Keep in mind he lives, eats and breathes Ny Giants, as does his 4 year old son. We watched the practice for quite a while, then stood in line for the autograph session.My grandson was on top of his Dads shoulders screaming for ELI!(A fave) of both of them.When Eli came through, he signed my grandsons helmet! I have never seen such a HUGE smile on either ones face before! From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank Mr. Manning for brightening the lives of the 2 most important men in my life.You will never know much a small act of kindness meant to these 2 fans. God Bless you Eli Manning!!!"
I often wonder if players realize the effect they can have on their fans?
