    I have a photo of my black Ford Escort as the very 1st car in the lot. My brother and I got there so early, the security folks had to ask us to leave the parking lot to get in line at the payment booth....that's where I got the photo. If I can, I will dig it out of my Giants archives and post it.

    I was in my 30s as was my brother and we were with our father who was around 60 at the time ....he was at the game in '56

    to be going back to the big dance was very emotional for him.... that was the only time I ever saw my father cry

    I remember all the debris in the air ... looked like toilet paper and all sorts of wrappers.... I also have a vision of the field carpet having lots of big wet spots on it .... that old horrible carpet

    that whole 4th quarter was a party .... even the security was celebrating

    I had never felt that before at a game... and have not felt it since....

    there was something magical in the air

    I also remember being at the game and hearing that Denver had beat the Browns.... and I knew that very second that we were going to hammer them .... I just knew it

I bought a ticket before even thinking about who I would go with and share the experience with so I bought a single ticket on the 40 in the 30th row.

    I ended up going to the SB with a friend (pats fan) but we didn't sit together. When I got to my seat I found out I was sitting right next to Dave Diehl's mom, wife and brother! Dave's dad died the year before as well so it was emotional for all of us. Right before the big play I said a prayer to my dad and the very next play was Tyree...I literally cried!

    The rest is history. When the game ended, I went down on the field with the Diehl family and Dave signed my Jersey. Greatest sports experience in my life.
    That is tough to top!

    UGH, I want a post stickied.


    One day, I'll meet Roanoke and make a thread about it. Stick-bound.

    Funny thing is that sticking a thread basically kills it. It's like moving it to general sports.

    There's that Giants game in 2007 where they sacked McNabb 12 times in one game. That was memorable and near impossible to repeat at current times.

    Well, yeah, it's pretty hard to match/top. After all, that's the record for sacks in one game. Before we did it in '07, it hadn't been done since the Cowboys got 12 on the Houston Oilers in 1985. All in all, including us, it's only been done 5 times.
