This kid can do it all? That’s what NY Giants fans are thinking right now after seeing first-round pick Kayvon Thobideaux make his way to the Bronx on Sunday night to check out the action between the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox. This came after Thibodeaux lit up the crowd at Madison Square Garden earlier in the week for a Rangers game.

While in the Bronx, though, Thibodeaux was able to provide plenty of smiles, as he had the honor of tossing out the first pitch. With all the swagger and confidence in the world, the pass-rusher took the bump and gave it his best shot.

NY Giants rookie Kayvon Thibodeaux stole the show at Yankee Stadium

While that pitch may have been a little high, no one cared about that. Thibodeaux showcased his athleticism and heck, maybe the Yankees could have needed him late in the game. New York went on to suffer a 5-0 loss to the Chicago White Sox, but the Bronx Bombers are still looking like one of the best teams in the bigs thanks to their 29-12 record.

As for Thibodeaux, he continues to make his rounds across the area and his popularity couldn’t be higher right now. The No. 5 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, the former Oregon Duck has looked sharp both at the rookie minicamp and in OTAs. Thibodeaux is being looked at as the future for the NY defense and he no question will have some lofty goals for this upcoming season.

Thibodeaux revealed that he’s been speaking closely with Michael Strahan and that fact alone has plenty of people jacked up about his potential. He and Azeez Ojulari working together in the trenches is terrible news for the rest of the NFC.

NY Giants coach Brian Daboll fired up the Rangers crowd at MSG

Thibodeaux wasn’t the only Giant to energize a crowd on Sunday, as new head coach Brian Daboll was at Madison Square Garden for the NY Rangers Game 3 showdown with the Carolina Hurricanes. This was a must-win for the Rangers, as they were down 2-0 in the series. Luckily, Daboll was on hand to get the people electrified.

As it turns out, Daboll proved to be the Rangers’ lucky charm, as the team went on to record a 3-1 victory, cutting their series deficit to 2-1. With Joe Judge long gone from East Rutherford, Daboll has fans believing in his vision. Things will get started in Week 1 against the Titans, with Daboll looking to get things going on the right foot.
