    DOUBLE TROUBLE: 88 + 80



    This honestly is one of the best articles I have read on ESPN. Long read, but well worth it.


    Cruz, Nicks spell double trouble for foes


    Each has overcome difficulties, and now both Giants are poised to reach their goals




    A New York story: On Tuesday night, 90 minutes away from the chaos of the city, all hell broke loose at the largest mall in the Hudson River Valley. Victor Cruz, a young receiver with model-esque looks and his very own place in the New York Giants' record books, was in Poughkeepsie for an autograph signing. Thanks to a breakneck football schedule, a newborn daughter and an inability to say no, Cruz was running late. "He's coming!" yelled a gray-haired man standing near the Piercing Pagoda as Cruz finally bounded down the steps, flanked by police officers. When he got to the bottom, Cruz looked around and flashed an embarrassed smile. The lines snaked all the way up the second floor.




    ............




    A New York story: Ramses Barden has the most unfortunate of locker stalls at the Giants' facility. He is situated between Cruz and Hakeem Nicks, which means he can barely towel off after practice without having 50 cameras and digital recorders invading his space.




    Nicks was the one to blame Monday. He is officially a superstar, a recently turned-24-year-old whose Hail Mary catch last weekend was the defining moment in the Giants' 37-20 win over the reigning Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers. Nicks is more low-key than Cruz. For years, despite his massive talent, Nicks was so quiet that he faded into the background. His high school coach mistakenly called him "Hassan" for two seasons, and Nicks just sheepishly smiled back.













    Sometimes Nicks will say something that in print might sound ****y, but it's delivered in a matter-of-fact, monotone voice that is meant to be humble.

    Pretty cool to hear Nicks and Mohamed Massaquoi were teammates in high school. Be tough to stop that in high school...
