NEW YORK – What a crazy year it has been in the world of sports. I can’t believe we have been up and running for a full year already. I was trying to get our readers an interview with a Giants player for this special occasion and got very lucky, because I have one of the best players on the team answering a few questions for us. I will publish the article tomorrow (Sunday 3-6-11) of an interview I had with a “surprise” New York Giants player (he has since been revealed as WR Steve Smith). I suggest you all come back tomorrow and see who it is that I’m talking about. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Hopefully, we will be able to get more interviews now with Giants players and coaches. I know these are exactly the types of articles Giants fans want to read with their coffee in the morning or at home at night. Some of the other writers here like Josh and Saulo, have been with the website since we first went live. Others such as Andrew joined us last year. I would like to say thank you for all of your contributions and as always guys, I look forward to reading your next articles. What a strange journey it has been to get us here today. At the stroke of midnight tonight it will be one year.
Things will continue to get interesting during the next few weeks with the upcoming NFL Draft, The CBA talks (extended another week), free agency and trades. We will be here to cover it all and give our unique perspective on the team. When Saulo takes a moment from his world travels and gets on his laptop, he usually blesses us with an informed article. We need to read more from Saulo! When Josh isn’t studying for mid-terms or finals, he also blesses our readers with well thought out stories concerning the current state of Big Blue. I am sure we will see more of Josh over the summer. Andrew has been busy lately but he also gives us a great perspective on the team through his work. Thank you once again writers for all that you do and thanks especially to all of our readers who are making nygreporter a respectable family friendly website. We have not wavered from our clean chat policy or managing a safe environment for sports fans.

Hello Giants Fans, after attending the local Memorial Day parade yesterday and the ceremony honoring fallen American soldiers, I was inspired to look deeper into the Wounded Warrior project. The NYG Reporter supports several charities and will write an article from time to time to gain exposure for them. I cannot think of a better time to write an article on a very important charity which is the Wounded Warrior project.
The Wounded Warrior project provides injured soldiers with numerous programs and services to help them once they come back home. These men and women have made unimaginable sacrifices for our country and deserve to be provided with opportunities when they come home. Let’s be clear, these soldiers are not looking for a handout but an opportunity. There are many ways you can help the project (check out the link below, to go to the official website and see how you can help) but the easiest way may be to simply give a donation. You can also give them a call if you prefer at 877-TEAM-WWP or 904-296-7350. There are so many different charities in the world today and I’m sure that each has a special place in someone’s heart. I hope that this article will open some eyes to a great group that are doing the right thing for the men and women of our military.
You can find out all of the specific information you will need at the following link:
