    Awful Giants Offfered Free Eye Exams

    http://nypost.com/2013/10/16/giants-...-lenscrafters/

    "The eye of the storm is being offered an escape route.

    Eli Manning, pictured in spectacles on The Post’s front page last week as a suggestion he can’t see his receivers and the focus of fans’ ire over the Giants’ 0-6 start, and his teammates are being offered free eye exams by LensCrafters.

    “Comprehensive eye exams,” LensCrafters wrote in an email to The Post, “can reveal the true culprit behind fumbles, turnovers and interceptions: poor vision.”

    Manning has thrown an NFL-high 15 interception and the 0-6 Giants have turned the ball over an NFL-worst 23 times.

    “Eye-hand-ball coordination, accurate depth perception, visual anticipation, and judgment of timing and speed are all dependent on sharp eyesight and will be essential to earning a much-needed victory on Monday night against the [Vikings],” LensCrafters wrote."
    “Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.” MB Rule # 1

    It's just a business getting itself some free advertising. Quite clever.

    This offer should extend to the front office and TC, then maybe they'll see what most of us see. Hmm, I doubt it. Glasses don't help with denial.
