    So, Did The Giants Win?

    Ok, I’m joking folks. But I do need to ask you a serious question. Are you a sports kinda gal? I mean – did you watch the Super Bowl? And if you did – did you watch it to see the commercials?? Or because you had a true affection for the game.

    I think it has something to do with WHERE you grew up. I’m from Queens and sports were never a real priority in my life. In high school, I remember doing archery and line dancing in gym class (which was super cool) but never took the effort to actually try to join a team. However, my girlfriends from down South and up North are quite the opposite.

    They even KNOW the names of the team members. LOL! The last time I knew a Giants name, I think I was 15 or so. The Refrigerator. That’s the only name I remember because my cousin used to quiz me on his favorite team every weekend and I would ALWAYS know ONLY ONE answer. Gotta give the boy some credit for trying…

    When I was in college, I actually met the entire Giants team. I was a waitress and they would come to my restaurant quite frequently. I ended up getting the whole lot to sign a piece of paper for my cousin – front and back. When I gave it to him, he just about collapsed on the floor. Meanwhile, I thought nothing of it. Big WHOOP – so to speak.

    Though, I will admit that I really enjoyed my first official football game with friends. But I think it was because I was having a great time at the party, you know.

    So here’s my question to you — are you a sports lover? Are you from a sports town? If so, what is your favorite team?

    1. I’m a DIE HARD Packers fan. Like, I plan my weekends around the game, know all the players, and own 6 authentic jerseys. This is new…I just became obsessed within the last few years. But now I can’t even think about missing a game. And I usually end up watching the other games that are on that day as well if I don’t have other plans.

    2. Forgot to mention that I even bought a share of the Packers stock. For $275 I now own a piece of the Green Bay Packers πŸ™‚ I’m so happy and lucky that our organization does it that way and the fans can be the owners.

    3. FC Barcelona. Never liked them until a year ago. That’s when I finally got it.

    4. I’m also from Queens. I joined a varsity team in high school for 2 years then stopped my senior year because of the nerd I was back then, I was only required to attend 4 classes the last semester and I couldn’t resist the sweet schedule. I made it home in time for the ABC’s soap operas πŸ™‚ It was an awesome few months.
      Moving on to present day, I watch sports but never did in growing up. I especially like football. Baseball is too slow for my liking. Hockey is ok. Basketball, it’s ok. But Football is freaking awesome and so are the Giants. You chose a great game as your first official game to watch. I never really understood why people say they watch it just for the commercials. I think they say that because they are wishy washy. If one didn’t care to watch the game and only had interest in the commercials then in this day in technological age, they can access all the commercials online before the game.
