    Victor Cruz dealing with the loss of his grandmother

    Victor Cruz dealing with the loss of his grandmother, who inspired his salsa touchdown celebration

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...with_loss.html

    Excerpt: "The next time Victor Cruz does his patented salsa touchdown celebration, it will have an even more special meaning.

    The Giants receiver first learned the dance from his grandmother, Lucy Molina, who passed away Monday night at age 77. "

    Obviously she's going to be on my mind," Cruz said today, "so it’s going to be emotional for me."Cruz was at Molina's hospital bed in New Jersey when she passed away, after being in and out of the hospital over the past several months for a combination of reasons, including diabetes.

    Cruz said he will attend her services after practice Thursday and her funeral Friday. It's not clear if he'll miss practice Friday as the Giants prepare for Tampa Bay." Read more...

    A hard loss to be sure... Hopefully VC will dedicate his performance sunday to his grandma, to honor her memory. Although, is football play something that can honor someone's memory? maybe, but I just hope VC comes out with a passion on sunday, although his head most likely will not be in the game... It could go either way

    Anyone remember the emotional and inspiring Performance by Brett Farve on Monday Night Football after his dad passed away. If I'm not mistaken he had a record breaking night
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    2003 I believe against the Oakland Raiders. He threw for 399 yards and four TD's. They won 41-7 that night.

    Matt Bryant, the Buccaneers place kicker many years ago lost his young child days before a game. He came out and kicked the game winner. Will never forget that one. I wouldn't question someone if they couldn't make the game with the loss of a close family member, but it's an inspiration when they do show up.
    Sincerely,
    Greg Schiano
    Head Coach, Tampa
