1.  I live in scenic Albrightsville, in the western Pocono Mountains of PA. I built my home almost 17 years ago, escaping from NJ, where I lived most of my life in Bergen and Hudson counties. I was born in Mount Vernon NY.

I was born and went to school in Mount Vernon NY also?  I graduated in 1967 from the high school.

Hi Everyone: (I drifted over from the other Borad)

I live in Ellicott City Maryland between Baltimore and Washington, DC  (very unfriendly Giants territory)


Been a fan since around 1970

I own my own business. We employee nurses as consultants in several states to handle medical issues in Short and Long Term Disability, Workers Compensation, Medicare and catastrophic health cases.


I am 48 married and have 3 kids. One just staretd college at West Virginia, my middle child is 13 and my baby is now 7.  therfore I will have to work until I drop. :)

I love the Giants, Mets, Knicks and Rangers.   I play a very little golf and completely suck at it.  I love the beach and either surfing or body surfing.  I play flag football for my Alma Mater in DC in the fall as a wideout.  Most of my team mates weren't born when I graduated.

I live in Hartford, CT

I have been a fan since I was old enough - around 1968.

I work for an Insurance company.

I became a Giants fan because my Aunt had season tickets from the early 1950's until the Meadowlands. I was very fortunate to have seen the Giants twice in the old Yankee stadium, and twice in Yale Bowl while the Meadowlands was being built.

Hi to all,

I live on the campus of Florida Christian College in Kissimmee, Fl (South of Orlando). As a youngchild I lived in Rochester, NY until the age of 12. My family moved to Glenvill, NY when I was 13, and went to high school at CBA, and graduated in '95. Once I complete my degree here at FCC, my wife and I plan to move out of Florida, due to the outrageous prices in home-ownership. On average, a 3 bedroom 2 bath house here goes for roughly $300,000, and seeing how I will become an ordained minister soon, I do not believe that I will be able to afford houses in that range, so we plan on moving to states in the South (Alabama, Georgia, S. Carolina, N. Carolina, Tenn).

I have been a Giants fan since I can remember (7 or 8 years old). I used to get into trouble a lot, and my father grounded me all of the time. He couldn't trust me too much, so he used to make me sit down and watch the Giants with him. I remember him yelling at the t.v. often, and it used to make me laugh a bunch. I guess it made me like the Giants for that reason, and it just kept on growing inside me.

I am currently in college working on my major (Counseling) and minor (Youth Ministry) at Florida Christian College. I am currently in my Junior year, and work two full-time jobs. My first job is working at a local Christian High School, that enrolls students that have been expelled from the areas local public schools. Eventhough the school has the title "Christian" on it, most students are minorities that belong too, or have come from gangs of all sorts. Most kids also come from broken homes, and do not speak much of the English language. I work in the school as a tutor/counselor, and love it so much. My second job is during the summer and I run a high school summer camp for the city. I also help run D-groups for my Church, and go out and minister at pubs/bars/pool halls.

I am married to my wife (Misty), and we have 4 children. Cheyenne (10), Gracie 8, Aj (6), and Emmalee (4). Yes, we have suffered through many broken tv's in our earlier relationship years  ;D I tried out to play quarterback for a local Arena Football team and to my surprise, I made the first cutts. I was one of 4 guys who were asked to stay after the initial try outs to continue on, and than was blown away by the other 3 guys (Who all played at major D-1 colleges). I coach my College's flag football team, and also play quarterback for them. I was recently asked to coach my son and daughter's football team this year, and that is on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. I am also in a steel-tip dart league, and can hold my own for most of the time.

We recently had the fantasy football draft, and I think I am a huge sleeper to win it. So watch out guys  ;)

1)  What part of the Country do you live in?
Montreal, Canada
     

2)  How long have you been a Giants fan?
I jump on the Giant bandwagon in 1990 and never got off.
     

3)  What do you do for a living?
I am a machinist working in the aviation industry. 
     

4)  Anything else you would like to mention about yourself?
I love sports more than anything.  Baseball and football are my two favorites.  I am more passionate about my Giants  but ironically, baseball is my favorite sports to watch.  I was an Expos season ticket holder from 2001 to 2004.  I was lucky enough to attend to the "blue Monday" game in 1981 as an 8th year old kid.  To this day, even with guys like Eric Gagné and Russell Martin being the pride of the Montreal area, I still hate the Dodgers. 

I had my 15 minutes of fame twice when I was interviewed by Chuck Johnson of the USA today and Joe Lapointe of the NY times.  The Lapointe column is my favorite.  At first, he just wanted to ask about my feelings about the Expos departure but when he discovered that my wife and I became partners in life because of our love for the Expos, he decided to insert our story in one of his column.  Two paragraph about us have been printed in this newspaper.

I live in Aberdeen, South Dakota which is in the heart of Vikings country.

I've been a Giants fan since the days of Gifford, Robustelli, Huff and Y.A Tittle.

I am a mental health therapist and corporate consultant. I do extensive work in chemical dependency and domestic violence. I'm 62 years old and looking forward to retirement in two years.

I have five children and six grandchildren who all live in the Minneapolis area. I am an avid Michigan fan and travel to at least one game in the Big House every year. Love to fish and hunt. We are the mecca for pheasant hunting.

I live in Jamestown NY which is in the southwestern corner of NYS about 70 miles south of Buffalo and about 45 miles east of Erie, Pa.  Right in the middle of Bills, Steelers and Browns country.

I have been a Giants fan since the mid-50's when we would get all the Cleveland Brown's games on tv.  Just loved watching Huff vs Brown.

I worked in common carrier trucking for 20+ years in operations supervision and sales until the bottom fell out of the industry.  Since then I worked for the
Jamestown Police Department and now the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Department in communications.  We dispatch police, fire, ems and nonemergency equipment as needed. 

My son and I are both certified NYS football officials.  Yup, we are zebras and just love it.  Like Terry M.  I have a passion for golf.   And I truly stink at it.  Usually struggle to break 100.  Big fan of the Yankees and also follow the Rangers in hockey.  I enjoy watching the future stars of the NHL play in the Ontario Hockey League as Erie Pa. has a team in that league, the Otters.
