Book Description: The New York Giants joined the National Football League (NFL) in 1925. During the next nine decades, the team established a winning tradition that led to four NFL championships and three Super Bowls. Most Giants fans know who The Duke is and know all about The Fumble in 1978. Names like Mel Hein, Sam Huff, Frank Gifford, and Y.A. Tittle are just as familiar as Lawrence Taylor, Harry Carson, Phil Simms, Mark Bavaro, Michael Strahan, and Eli Manning. But even the most die-hard fans don't know everything about their beloved Giants. In 100 Things Giants Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die, Dave Buscema has assembled the facts, traditions, and achievements sure to educate and entertain true fans. Learn about Emlen Tunnell, Roosevelt Brown, Jeff Hostetler, Joe Morris, Jeremy Shockey, and Brad Van Pelt, among many other pivotal figures. What were the Giants thinking when Tom Brady laughed at Plaxico Burress prediction before Super Bowl XLII? Why did Bill Parcells quit his dream job as a Giants assistant coach to become a realtor in 1979? What did Amani Toomer regret thinking the night before Super Bowl XXXV? Why shouldn't you throw a snowball? Why did Y.A. Tittle almost retire when the Giants traded for him? All of the key events are here—the transitions of leadership through the Mara family, the league championships, the greatest play in Super Bowl history, the Greatest Game Ever Played, the first NFL title game, the move to the Meadowlands—and many more. From the harsh taskmasters like Bill Parcells and Tom Coughlin, to the welcoming voice of legendary broadcaster Dick Lynch, in these pages Giants fans will discover the remarkable people, places, and events that celebrate their team.
