What a fantastic time I had at Giants Stadium today watching the Giants take on the Rams. Great weather, plus I had nice seats close to one of the goal lines. The Giants offense has been the best in football through week 4 and today Eli Manning pretended he was Peyton, he just keeps getting better and better. He loves Plaxico Burress apparently, those two hooked up for completions all day long. Close to 300 yards and 4 TDs for Manning. I have high hopes for this guy.
The best part though was this freak of nature who was screaming really funny obscentities throughout the game, just about after every play. We were noticing he called someone an "*******" on just about every possession, so I started keeping track of the official "Section 123 ******* of the Possession" and unfortunately it was most often Tiki Barber, the jersey I was wearing. But this guy looked like a midget or something with this weird Giants-braid dreadlock hat and was hammered silly, apparently unaware the Giants were up by 10-20 points most of the game. Finally some people turned around and said, "Dude, you know we're winning, right?" and this guy responded, "Oh, man, we are. I just can't take this game of football," and slid down in his seat, finally silent for the 4th quarter. We're not sure if it was the 10th Miller Lite that did it for him, or if he was finally soothed by the knowledge that we were winning.
