For what it's worth - and probably not much - Sports Illustrated's Dr. Z picks the Giants.

I'm going to withhold my pick. If I were to make it public there would be no need to play the game.

To return this thread to NE skiing: Could it be said that the preponderance of Giants fans over Pats fans on this thread would be empirical evidence that New England ski areas and ski interests are overrun by the NY/NJ crowd?

No, I think we've established that there are Giants fans all over New England. Maybe that means that this forum has an excess of people over 50 though.

Let's not forget that the Patsies are an expansion team that plays in that new league (I think it's called the AFL?). The Giants and the NFL have been around a heck of a lot longer, that probably explains why there are more Giant fans here!

Mapnut, please, there is no such thing as an excess of people over 50. We are needed. We are the leavening of civilization, the font of much knowledge, the bridge between generations, and yes, many of us were Giants fans before the Patriots came along.
I remember driving to New York to see the Giants play the Bears in a championship game at Yankee Stadium in 1954 (I think) in freezing weather. The Giants came out in sneakers in the second half because their cleats gave them trouble on the frozen turf. I think George Blanda played for the Bears in that game. I made many trips to the Stadium over the years to see the likes of Charlie Connerly, Y.A. Tittle, Roosevelt Brown and Roosevelt Greer, Frank Gifford, Alex Webster and little Arnold College's Andy Robustelli play. And I always was able to get a ticket (and afford one) on game day. Things have changed.

Bill,

Are you sure it wasn't 1934? You would've been 5 years old!

That was the first, and famous, sneaker game. I was alive but not there. They did it again in 1954. At least I think it was '54, though the season may have leaked over into '55. It was cold and at least some of the playewrs wore sneakers, as I recall. Giants won.

On further checking, it was 1956. Trying to do things by memory when you barely have one is not easy and you shouldn't try it at home.

Bill, you silver-tongued devil, how well you put the value of those with experience ... and the grey hair to prove it.

Do pardon my choice of words. Maybe I should have said "a preponderance of people over 50" - no, that makes us sound ponderous. "A statistical bulge" - forget it. I have it - "A wealth of people over 50."

That 'wealth of people over 50' is sucking dry my social security!

We're well worth the expense, rocket.

And roger, thanks, but you're the one who gets the kudos for finding that tree.

I loved this one in the Post about Tom Brady's romps in "enemy territory" with gal pal Gisele Bundchen:

""I guess it shows how dead the night life in Boston is," said NYU student McGregor Ganthier, 21."

This has a tinge of truth. As best as I can tell, Boston is the only major transit system that shuts down completely late at night.

But then again, Brady had the day off. Do we know what Gisele's schedule was for the next day?
