The Giants Go Green...Size Matters

So many actors have gone to hybrids and are spokespeople for conservation and clean efficient living, but us athletes have been slow to get on board. I'm here to inform you that we at the New York Giants are "Going Green", or at least one of us has. Danny Clark is a 10 year veteran and he loves his smart car!!! It looks small (ok it is small), but you have just as much room inside as you would have in any two seat sports car. I commend Danny for getting out of the trap of "Bigger is Better" but it's funny. He is a big guy in a little car! He has rims, custom lights, it's convertible and has a Brabus kit on it ("they 10's, but he keeps 'em clean though"...LOL). All for a recession special... under 20k.

Players tell him they are gonna "pick his car up and put it in the back of their pickup trucks". Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck, and Chris Canty all think they can not only pick up his smart car but if it were a running back coming through the hole they could tackle it. I know it's not possible because it's a car, but there's a small piece of me that feels the same way.

I wanna be cool like Danny. I'm really thinking about getting one of these things.

Be a Blessing Tuesday

“Give and it shall be given unto you…”- Luke 6:38

Get ready for the inaugural “Be a Blessing Tuesday”! We know that there are millions of people that make this world a better place through their day-to-day actions. So starting next week, we will use each and every Tuesday to celebrate and bless people that use their time and energy to be a continual blessing to those around them. From parents, to co-workers, to kids; if you know someone that deserves to be blessed for their special efforts, we want to know about it!

Send an email of 200 words or less describing what makes your candidate so special, the ways in which they bless others, and how we should be a blessing to them.

Each Tuesday, we will select a different person that we can highlight and be a blessing to in a unique way. We look forward to hearing your wonderfully inspiring stories and thanks ahead of time for making “Be a Blessing Tuesdays” a success!

Email your candidates’ story to BlessingTuesday@yahoo.com. Entries must be received each Monday before 6p est.

Hate is UGLY!!!

You know you are doing the right things when people are hating on you!!! The Lakers are the only NBA team that people just say they HATE, and for no reason. How do you get joy from seeing the demise of someone else? I don't get it!!! The worst thing is people who don't even have a team of their own and say "I don't really have a team but I just want the Lakers to lose". It is different if you have allegiance to one of our rivals. But to have no passionate affiliation with another team and just want the Lakers to lose is ridiculous. I just know that if so many people "HATE" the Lakers why does everyone watch them when they are on TV? Sounds like jealously of a winner!
Last year when we (Yes WE!!!) lost in the Finals it was amazing how many phone calls, emails, and text messages I got from people who I didn't even know watched basketball and who had never cheered for the Celtics. Last year it was all these Boston fans who magically appeared when they got KG and Ray Allen. That number multiplied when they made the Finals.

This year it is even more incredible how wishy-washy people are. In the beginning of the the season they wanted Boston to repeat, then LeBron was gonna get it done, now they all say, "I been on the Orlando Magic". LOL!!! Yeah Right!!! I like Dwight Howard, LeBron, Tim Duncan, Yao, Chris Paul, Carmelo, and the Birdman just as much as everyone else, but my allegiance is clear. I understand the hate because everyone wants to live in L.A. or a be Laker; the most important franchise in the NBA who consistently provides "SHOWTIME".
ACT NOW!!! On behalf of Laker fans we are offering you a chance at redemption. It is time to first, ADMIT you have a problem with hating. Then realize you really wanna be a part of a big time winner. We are attaching extra room on the bandwagon for people to jump on. Face your fears and don't look before you leap, we will be there to catch you! You will even get high fives at the parade!

I understand that one post by me cannot change those people with deep rooted Hater issues. We love you people, fuel for our fire! But those who are 1st generation Haters this is your opportunity to stop the cycle before you pass that ugly trait on to your kids, family, and even pets!!!
