Famine Over: G-Men are Giants in New York City

Championship city?


Forget it.

New England's bid for perfection and the right to be claimed as the "Best sports city" in the world came to a crashing end after Super Bowl XLII. In what could be the most watched Super Bowl in recent memory, as well as the biggest upset, the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots, 17-14, making history in the National Football League, the Giants organization, and most importantly, in New York City.

The World Series victory of the Boston Red Sox, compounded with the issues of the Yankees and Mets, the disappointing Jets season, and the sinking ship that is the New York Knickerbockers, New York was left in what was described as a "sports famine" (Feast, Giving Thanks and Looking at Our Famine) in New York. New York was in dire need for a team to believe in. A team to once again hang their hat on. Thus, the good Lord gave this city, The New York Football Giants.

Fans of all teams, Yankees, Mets, Knicks, Nets, Rangers, Islanders, Devils, Dragons, Red Bull, and even those that cheer for "Gang Green" were in support of the 2007 New York Giants. A story of an underdog, a story of resiliency and triumph, a story of slaying the undefeated team from hated New England. This team restored our hope. This team restored our faith. This team made us believe that it is possible.

Once again, New York has a champion.

AEW All IN: London (2023) Review: "This large of a crowd for an event that wasn't the WWE!"

I'm obviously registering these thoughts incredibly late, but such is the current state of pro wrestling right now - there is just so much going on, and so much to enjoy. It's a great time to be a fan, regardless of where your tribalism fandom falls - if you carry such allegiances.  I'm sure no matter what product you find entertaining, you circled AEW's All In event from Wembley Stadium as a must-watch. I don't care about someone else's "take" on the attendance total - I couldn't care less if it was the record for a pro wrestling event or not - what AEW was able to accomplish is absolutely amazing! Four years in, and the company produced an event on the levels of Wrestlemania in terms of attendance and business - that's damn impressive! Tony Khan and the entire company deserve loads of credit for taking that leap because it very much could have failed. They took a chance, and absolutely delivered (and so much more), and proved there is a subs

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/10/23

3 Up 1. Coco Gauf & Novak Djokovic - The US Open wrapped up this weekend and tennis crowned some deserving champions. Djokovic continues to add to a remarkable career with his 24th (!!) grand slam title win. And of course, Coco Gauff won over America with her win. It's impressive to see the effect that the Williams sisters have had on tennis - wow. Looking forward to seeing the star Gauff will become.  2. Olivia Rodrigo - Her first album was fire. Even this late-thirties male enjoyed it. The sophomore album is always the toughest and Rodrigo apparently (haven't listened to it myself, yet) dropped an absolute banger in "Guts". So much so, that it broke records for debut stream with over 60 million streams!  3. Deion Sanders - There's way to much dialogue around Sanders that isn't needed. Here is what it boils down to for me - Sanders took over a program that was 1-11. He brought in 80+ players. His team is currently 2-0, including victories over a ranked op

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/3/23

3 Up  1. Labor Day Weekend - It's the weekend where we mark the unofficial end of summer. However, the weather this upcoming week says otherwise. Nonetheless, I hope you all had an opportunity to reflect, restore, and give some gratitude on this weekend.  2. College Sports - College athletics are back in swing, providing some pretty awesome moments this week.  2a. Nebraska Women's Volleyball - 92,003 for a Women's Volleyball Game is not just a record for a Women's Athletic event, but it's pretty freakin' cool. Kudos to Nebraska Athletics and everyone who attended in making that a special occasion.  2b. Travis Hunter - I didn't get a chance to watch the Colorado vs. TCU game, however, I'm a fan of Deion Sanders, mainly from what he did for Jackson State. However, Hunter playing both ways is remarkable. Freak athlete.  3. Jimmy Buffett - The world said goodbye to Buffet whose songs can take you to a beach or to summer vibes in an instant.  3 Down  1.
