A Fantastic Article About The Giants-Eagles Rivalry

This article by Macy Golder, who is a NY sports fan living in the Philadelphia area, breaks down perfectly the modern rivalry between the NY Giants and Philadelphia Eagles as we head into familiar territory this weekend.

Here’s a snippet that ought to bring back tears:

October 19, 2003 in the Meadowlands Brian Westbrook returned an 84 yard punt with 1:16 left in the game to beat the Giants 14-10. I was at a baby’s baptism party, sitting in the corner watching this game with my dad. Of course my mom yelled at us for not being social, sorry mom but it’s giants/eagles. We thought the game was over so we walked away… Well the Eagles fans there kindly alerted us that it was not over. Running over to the TV, pushing our way through the Eagles fans, our hearts broke. We couldn’t believe our eyes. One of the worst games ever.

I know that exact feeling, as the 2011 Desean Jackson incident happened to me and my family during a non-Christmas Christmas celebration we lovingly call Festivus, for obvious reasons. I sat in the corner speechless and in shock as the kids opened presents all around me.

Also, I myself am a NY fan living in Redskin territory – so I’m familiar with those kinds of challenges as well. We’ve reached out to Ms. Golder via Twitter and asked her if she’d like to contribute to Giants Gab on a weekly basis… to which she tacitly agreed. I look forward to her first post here on the Gab.

LET’S GET THIS WIN GIANTS!
