GMEN HQ: Thousands of NY Giants fans became fans through inheritance and bonding with their father over Giants football. What does the New York Football Giants mean to you, your dad, and your entire family?
LPG: You asked that because the same thing happened to you, I’m sure. (He’s right, thanks Dad!)
If your father or grandfather were Giant fans, you didn’t have a choice. You had to be a Giants fan and that’s that. Nowadays, it’s a little different with fantasy, free agency, and kids jumping on the bandwagon for Patrick Mahomes or Russell Wilson.
For us, we didn’t have any of that. You suffered through who you had and that’s that. If your parents went out and got you a jersey, whoever it was, you had that jersey for 20 years. You are bred into the family. It’s a rich, rich history, the New York Football Giants. I can only say that those times were a lot different back then. Like we said in the beginning, you’re bred into the Giants family and Giant fans have that history.
