Jen Polashock Writer
Jen Polashock has been a passionate Giants fan since those early years of Scott Brunner vs. Phil Simms. Her reward: being able to witness all four Lombardi's being hoisted and attending two ticker-tape parades. Attending Giants Training Camp since 2003 led Jen to eventually start writing up her observations for fellow fans on several blogs, message boards and Giants websites - complete with pictures and interactive stories about players and coaches. As administrator on several sites, she also wrote point-of-view editorials throughout the seasons. As Jen's Giant passion only intensifies with each season, it was only fitting that she broadened her writing horizons to include Giants 101.
