It was suppose to be an easy game for the Gents but you wouldn't have believed it with our secondary making Palmer look like the #1 pick that he was back in 2003. Outside of preseason games, every Giants game I've attended has resulted in a loss, and yesterday in overtime when we punted at 4th and 1 at the NYG 44, I thought my awful luck was coming around again, propping up the Bengals.
- vs. Steelers (2004 Week 15): Best game I have ever attended, Eli looked like the #1 pick that he was against a stellar Pittsburgh defense. Missed the opening kickoff return though...
- vs. Panthers (2005 Post-Season): Next to the Redskins game below, this playoff game was so awful, Giants fans began turning on each other. With the fans largely out of the game by halftime, a couple of fights broke out among the frustrated fans in my section.
- vs. Redskins (2007 Week 15): Shockey broke his leg in this one, could it get any worse? Thankfully no... I guess we hit rock bottom in this game before peaking to win the Super Bowl.
After the long commute back into the city, I walked up to the Samsung Experience Store in the Time Warner Center to check out the Omnia which they didn't have. What they did have were plenty of LCDs so I stuck around and caught what was left of the Eagles game and the Saints game.
Jason Taylor's leg injury sounds like compartment syndrome, an injury I had back at CMU from playing football with the Alpha Class. I was out for an entire semester whereas Taylor is scheduled to make his return after missing only one game. Then again I'm no professional athlete and they had to remove a muscle from my leg too.
