Happy Thursday, New York Giants fans! We're now approaching the final weekend without football until February! What a pleasant thought. In the mean time, enjoy the following headlines over your first morning coffee.
Question: Romo could have led the same Giants' team to the Super Bowl that Eli was fortunate enough to play with. Eli, on the other hand, would be ringless in Dallas. Period.
Jon Machota: I will agree on the part about Eli being without a ring if he was playing in Dallas. But to assume that Romo would have had the same success in New York is a bit of a stretch for me. It's easy to bash Eli because of the terrible season he's coming off of, but he was outstanding in both of those Super Bowl seasons. He threw 15 TDs and only 2 INTs throughout those playoffs and was the MVP twice in wins over the best franchise of the last decade.
The New York Football Giants are teaming up with the American Red Cross to host their 4th Annual Blood Drive, presented by Bob’s Discount Furniture as part of the NBC 4 Giants Health Expo on Saturday, July 19 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at MetLife Stadium.
The drive comes at a crucial time: during the summer months of June, July and August, on average, about two fewer donors schedule an appointment to give blood at each American Red Cross blood drive than what patients need. This can add up to more than 100,000 fewer donations during the summer.
“We are proud to partner with the American Red Cross and Bob’s Discount Furniture on this life-saving initiative,” said Mike Stevens, SVP and CMO, New York Football Giants. “We’ve experienced great success at our past blood drives and sincerely thank Bob’s for promoting the program so effectively on NBC 4 New York to help maximize donations at our second annual Health Expo. We believe that successful partnerships can achieve great accomplishments and the Red Cross, Bob’s and NBC 4 New York have been spectacular partners in working together to make this blood drive even more successful.”
Petitgout, donning a blue suit, pink tie and ?4 o’clock shadow, looked downcast as he stood beside his lawyer Dennis Ring at an appearance in Manhattan Criminal Court on the misdemeanor assault raps.
“From the beginning the complainant in this case appeared not to be cooperating with the police or the District Attorney’s office,” Ring said after the brief appearance. “Mr Constantinides, after consulting with some kind of civil attorney, has apparently found Jesus, which I believe is a result of his hope to obtain some kind of civil judgment against my client.”
