Big Blue Adding Five to Ring of Honor on Sunday

November 30, 2011

NEW YORK – The New York Giants have announced that they will be adding five players to the Ring of Honor on Sunday. This tells me that MetLife stadium will be buzzing with the ghosts of old and the stadium should be electric. The Giants plan on inducting LB Carl Banks, TE Mark Bavaro, RB Alex Webster, LB Brad Van Pelt and P Dave Jennings. On behalf of the nygreporter, I would like to say congratulations men, this is a well deserved honor for some of the biggest names in Giants history.

I have had the pleasure of seeing some of these guys play and meeting a couple of them (Bavaro, Van Pelt) let me tell you, Mark Bavaro and Carl Banks are two of the best Giants of all time. They must have saved inducting them for this year in order to generate interest using high profile stars, spreading them out if you will instead of including them all in the initial 30 honorees. It makes sense but to the true blue Giants fan, there is no need for these types of things, we will be there no matter who is inducted. Once a Giant, always a Giant! Let’s take a look at this group of men and congratulate them.

The Giants Celebrate 25th Anniversary of Super Bowl Victory

June 12, 2011

NEW YORK – The 1986 New York Giants are widely considered one of the best football teams to ever play the game. The team won the Super Bowl (XXI) that year under head coach Bill Parcells and a coaching staff that reads like a roster list of legendary NFL coaches. The Giants defeated the Denver Broncos 39-20 and to the “true blue” Giants fan, this is the greatest team that New York has ever fielded. The Big Blue Wrecking Crew has a ton of Hall of Fame players on the roster and a player that many say is the best to ever play the game in linebacker Lawrence Taylor. The reunion will take place at the Meadowlands Exposition Center today June 12, 2011 from 8:00 AM through 4:00 PM.

Giants linebacker Harry Carson made it his personal mission to get all 53 players from the 1986 roster to the reunion celebration. Mr. Carson was successful in is efforts but could only get 51 out of 53 of the players. QB Jeff Hostetler (party pooper) will not be able to make it as well as a backup running back. The team is meeting right now to celebrate as a family and I’m sure these two players will regret missing an event like this. The 1986 team had a private dinner last night to reminisce in peace about that great moment in New York history. It won’t be very private at all today, fans get to mingle with the stars and share their stories of glory and most likely, take a peek at a Super Bowl championship ring. Reports said that fans paid up to $200 dollars for the chance to hang out with the legends today. These are some lucky fans, I wish I could have been there for this celebration too.

Giants fans can look for great photos and coverage of the event via twitter for instant access or check out Giants.com for additional coverage. They have already started to tweet some great photos and they will continue to do so throughout the event. I’m sure the official Giants website will have a great recap as well. Be sure to stop by there at the end of the day too. On behalf of everyone here at the nygreporter, I would like to say Congrats and thank you to everyone who played on the 1986 team for making me the huge Giants fan that I am today.

Do you think the 1986 New York Giants are the best NFL team in history?
