    What
    makes this book a must-read for all football-lovers is Ralph
    Vacchiano's reporting. He takes you inside the growth of the Superbowl
    MVP with details you just can't read anywhere else. I love this
    book!

    </p><p class="MsoNormal" style=""><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;">As the game mod for the "Your Predictions" game, thank you for the annoucement to all Giant.com members, Asian Giant!</span>
    <span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;"></span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style=""><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;">
    </span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style=""><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;">When I asked Ralph if
    he’d like to donate an autographed book to the season’s top predictor of the game,<span style=""></span> he graciously said “yes” and then
    generously offered more than one copy!<span style=""> </span>With the Giants’ seal of approval, we’ll be awarding several books between now and December 28th. (Visit the pinned "Your Predictions" game thread in Rivals weekly for all prize info and rules.)</span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style=""><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;">
    <p class="MsoNormal" style=""><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;">I asked Ralph if he would
    like to say a few words to the players here and tell us something about his
    book in his own words. He said that he would like to do that.<span style=""> So, without further ado, here’s……...Ralph!</span></span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style=""><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;"><span style="">

    </span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style=""><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial;">First of all, I am delighted to
    offer up signed copies of my book, Eli Manning: The Making of a Quarterback
    <font face="Arial" size="1">(Skyhorse Publishing)</font>, as a prize to the winners.</span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="">

    <p class="MsoNormal" style=""><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Arial;">It's the inside story of how and why
    the Giants decided to turn their franchise over to Eli Manning; how difficult
    it is to find and develop championship-caliber NFL quarterbacks; and Manning's
    topsy-turvy, roller-coaster ride from Draft Day, 2004 to Super Bowl XLII. <o>

    <p class="MsoNormal" style=""><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Arial;">I've covered every day of his NFL
    career, and there were still things I didn't know about the story until I wrote
    the book. And as I often tell people, if you're a football fan, you're sure to
    love it. It's got the ultimate happy ending.</span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="">

    <p class="MsoNormal" style=""><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: Arial;">Second, I want to wish you all the
    best of luck in the “Your Predictions” game over the holiday season. And now
    that I know it exists, I look forward to checking back and seeing how
    “expats” and the real experts are doing.<o></o><span style="">
