    Much like your experience Sean, except 17 years earlier. To sum it up in one word, CHARACTER.

    I got serious and locked in to this team by the 1990 Monday Night Football matchup against the 2x defending champion 49ers. Both teams were 11-1, best teams in the league. The Giants lost that hard fought game but they showed such fight, such spirit, such character, I was hooked, and they won the SB that year (on their backup QB and RB, no less) and beat those same 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. Very similar to the feeling of the week 17 regular season matchup against the Patriots that the Giants lost 38-35 and then would beat them in the Super Bowl.

    Ha!!
    That was the famous "Phil Simms in Ronnie Lott's face" game.
    Things like that moment are why Phil is my favorite all time player.

    Funny thing with me is no one in my family liked American Football, it was all about Soccer (Futbol). I guess I was destined to be a Giants fan, Watched the sport on TV one day and guess who was playing? The Giants lol

    Of course I lived in NY at the time so i was able to watch all their games from that day on and was a huge fan since, this was at the age of 8.

    My dad's early influence it the single biggest reason I am a Giants fan.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    Because I was born to be a Giants fan. Same as my Dad and my grandfather. Now passed on to my daughter. Its a family curse I figure.
