NEW YORK – I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year! I hope you all got home safe if you went out and remember you’re still drunk if you’ve only slept for 3 hours, don’t drink and drive! I know the Giants fans out there are ready for the Dallas Cowboys game today at MetLife stadium at 1:00 PM EST. I’m sure that by the time you read this and have had your coffee, you will be ready for the big game. Not much left to be said about this one, Division rivals with something on the line besides pride. This is a fierce rivalry that got really heated in the 1980’s and 1990’s. The Cowboys are right at the top of the list for hated rivals and Giants fans have no problem telling you about it. It’s best to leave it alone and not dwell on it.
The crazy period of the NFL is upon us and the playoff pictures are clear. This is a very exciting time to be a fan if your team has played well and made the postseason. Anything can happen from this point on and since this is the last week of regular season football, I must say that the playoffs are welcome. The Giants did the best that they could with the personnel on the field. The team was dismantled by injuries once again in 2011 and those injuries caused the rookies and second stringers to gain valuable game time experience that will keep the Giants deep for years. The Giants need their stars and starters back to make a serious run at the Super Bowl in my opinion, I hope I’m wrong but I would be lying if I didn’t say exactly how I felt about this situation.
I hope all of the Giants fans out there enjoy this final regular season game today and let’s get a win for the home team. No matter what is on the line, at the heart of this game, is a contest between the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys, this story needs no other punch line or reason to happen. That is why I will sit back and really enjoy watching this game.
On behalf of the nygreporter, I would like to wish you all of the best for 2012 and the new year!
How did you spend New Year’s Eve 2011 and how will you spend New Year’s Day 2012?
