She fell in love with the game. She knew several of the Giants personally. Kyle Rote and Frank Youso were close friends who would call he every year on Christmas day to say hello. In the late 50's and early 60's she would have the entire Offensive line over to her apartment every Monday after a game for her wonderful stew. She said they were so big they would blot out the sun shining through her apartment windows. She also talked about how difficult it was for them to move comfortably on a Monday. They said they didn't start feeling human again until Wednesday or Thursday... which is why I hate Thursday night games.

    Agreed. Thursday is just over saturation for us fans and it's just not right to do to the players.

    There is no originality and reality with the scheduling. Every single Thursday night game should be Only for two teams coming off the bye... and, the only teams playing Monday night should be ones that follow it with a bye. These guys destroy their bodies, and they need proper rest.

    K.....its been amusing, but the dog thing has gotten stale toots.

    If you're bored, post stats on the Giants run game or something.

    Or.....what you did last night....

    Anything but this dog shtick....
    "Sir, I was wondering: did you happen to catch the professional football contest on television last night?"
    "No...I didn't."
    "Oh it was most exhilarating: the Giants of NY took on the Packers of Green Bay and in the end the Giants triumphed by kicking an oblong ball made of pigskin through a big H. It was a most ripping victory."

    Still no cure, after all this time. Dwight was well respected.
