In the interview he was asked what he thought about the people who still held a grudge against him for a crime he committed and served time for. He explained that he can't worry about that. He has turned his life around, he has served his time, he has found God. He went on to say the people who dislike him have their opinion and if they don't want to cheer for him, well, that's ok. They all have a right.
That's awful nice of Mike to "give us his blessing", to be allowed to have our own opinion. Thanks Mike.
Ever since the Eagles sold their soul a few years ago when they hired a former dog killer to lead their team, they lost me as a fan. I'll come back when a dog killer isn't throwing down and outs to racists. ( Oh, that's a whole other story )
My friend Jen, a totally absorbed New York Giant fan with season tickets and a big heart, knows of my dilemma of being a football fan with no team to root for. She invited me to the Giants game this past Monday night. A Giants fan inviting an Eagles fan to a game is like a Confederate soldier inviting a Union soldier over for tea. Ok, that's a bit dramatic but you get the point. There is a rivalry between the two teams and a lot of smack talking between fans that live only 90 miles apart.
Jen only has one rule and that is I must wear Giants gear. An Eagles fan wearing Giants gear? Blasphemy to some. Hey, give me a ticket to a NFL football game, and I'll wear anything you like.
This group of crazy tailgaters don't like to be late. As you can see their car is in position #2 at the gate, waiting for them to open.
They get there 6 hours before kickoff to assure they get the prime tailgating spot.
This isn't your grandfathers tailgate party. They take it to another level.
Ed's dedicated Giants van, filled with everything and anything that you would need to have a class A tailgate party. or a wedding reception.
As is the tradition, after everything is set up, the party begins with a champagne toast.
I think Ed is on to something.
This gentleman had different ideas about how he would tailgate. He drove into this parking lot full of tailgaters, weaving between grills and guys throwing a football around, parked his car, got out his chair, sat down and read a book. Hey, whatever blows your Giants flag...........
