Our latest fan fight is up. Myself and the Obnoxious Boston Fan debate which fan base is better. Read below:
Jeremy Fuchs says: I’ve been fortunate enough to attend a good amount of Giants game in my time. All are different. The blowouts, well, those are the fun ones. The stands are dancing, and it’s a party. The close ones, well, those are tense. Everyone’s on pins and needles, and knowing the Giants history, expecting them to lose. Giants fans are a realistic fan base. We’ve seen the team fail too often to not expect glory.
But, despite that, Giants fans find a way to keep coming back. My father is a first generation American, so there’s not a long line of football fandom in my family.
But, I learned everything I need to know from him. There’s a picture of me, hanging somewhere in my parents house, that says it all. I’m about 6 months old, if that. He’s holding me. And on my head is a Giants hat.
We’re fans all the way through. Through the lean years after the 2001 Super Bowl, through the Trey Junkin disaster, through the Plaxico mess, we’re still here.
Giants fans know how to suffer. We’ve seen collapses. We’ve seen meltdowns. I had the unique privilege of seeing the game last season where the Giants completely broke down against the Eagles in person. They were up big in the 4th. And then, slowly but surely, the Iggles mounted a comeback, culminating in DeSean Jackson’s walk-off punt return.
It doesn’t get lower than that. You could hear hopes fade into the cool breeze, as, collectively, we breathed out our sighs of discontent. It was one of the worst feelings I’ve felt as a sports fan; and this is coming from a Yankees fan who knows all too well what happened in 2004.
