    Wow, that hurts to read but is uplifting at the same time.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    It's hard to imagine someone's life changing as a result of that kind of attack

    My heart goes out to the family. This would be the last way anyone would want to get to meet a team in which they are fans.

    Wow man...tough read...

    Props to the Giants for doing what they did, and although I've repeated myself many times, my heart goes out not only to Tom Teves and his family but all the other victims of that senseless massacre.
