A ruling on a continuance for the 2011 New York Giants football season is expected this afternoon. The Giants looking for an edge sought a reprieve directly from Governor Al Smith yesterday, but found out he was away for the weekend with Mayor Jimmy Walker at Judge Crater’s place. Crater’s been in hiding with his floozy girlfriend since he crossed the Mob but he invites the boys upstate for card games now and then.
As of this moment, the Giants and Giant fans do not hate the Atlanta Falcons. Seeking inspiration I sought out a few ex-Giants to address the Jints.
Homer Jones: “Throw it long!”
Aaron Thomas: “Watch your feet in the end zone, the stripes are blind.”
Kyle Rote: “Play both ways.”
Spider Lockhart: “Don’t get sucked in on Ryan’s play action.”
Mark Bavaro: “Eli, you are my kind of QB, hit me on the slant.”
Sam Huff: “If he doesn’t go down, bite him.”
Dick Modzelewski: “Hit the small guy with the ball.”
Joe Morrison: “Did anyone see my Yankee cap?”
Joe Don Looney: “There are really girls in the locker room?”
Harry Carson: “watch his hips, tackle with your arms.”
Allie Sherman: “Huff! Keep your eyes on #32.”
