Celeb NYG fans?

lugnut : 5/21/2020 12:15 pm
Bored and random-ass thread, I know...

Read interview y'day with Ozark actor and NJ native Tom Pelphrey -- Wendy's brother Ben -- where he notes he is "fucking obsessed" with NYG.

Just curious what other stars we might count among our brethren? (Citations of actresses/models require pics, preferably in Giants gear.)

Ozark is great show, BTW - think there are some converts on this site(?)

I met Viggo Mortensen when I was at work a couple of summers ago. He was dressed in Giants merch and we had a discussion about the team and some of his movies. Yes, he is definitely a Giants fan.
Can't forget this guy

Fans from all over will rise again when we start the process of winning football once again this year. Remember, we start another run this time, we add to 4 titles already won, we have had 2 nice runs in the super bowl era, another and we start doing things other teams have never done, be nice to the first organization to have 3 runs with multiple titles with new head coach, 2 with Bill, 2 with Tom, and now ? with Judge.

By the way, his favorite movies to make would probably surprise you.

from Run DMC rocking the old school starter Giants jacket (though it wasn't old school at the time).

To be fair, I have seen them in other teams gear (Raiders?), but being from NY I would like to think they're Giants fans.

Nixon used to speak very fondly of the Giants.

know if he was a Giants fan or not, but when I was outside the White House when the 1986 team visited, Ernest Borgnine was there.

Nixon was a huge football fan. I believe he played it at college in Whittier.

Yes, he called a play for the Skins - an end around that lost 13 yards and the Skins ended up losing a close game. Never heard about Nixon and the Giants.

Nixon was a huge football fan. He played on the freshman team at Whittier but never really got off the bench with the varsity.

SFGFNCGiantsFan : 5/21/2020 7:41 pm : link
Thanks. Yeah, I never heard of Nixon being fond of the Giants either. I know he lived the last years of his life in Jersey, but when I think of Nixon & football, I think of him & the Skins/George Allen.

He started going to games after he moved to NJ. I have video of him at the Giants vs. Cowboys game in 1989 sitting out in the stands.

Regarding Nixon  
Eric from BBI : Admin : 5/21/2020 7:47 pm : link
he's on a couple of NFL Films productions talking about the Giants. One was at some banquet or speaking event where he talks about the old teams.

He's also in the 1988 NYG Highlight tape (see the 17:15 mark)...

As vice president, Nixon made no secret of his delight in rubbing shoulders with renowned football coaches like Woody Hayes of Ohio State, whose support he credited for helping him carry Ohio in the 1960 election against John F. Kennedy. During his wilderness years as a New York lawyer, Nixon analyzed football plays with Y. A. Tittle and Andy Robustelli over cocktails at the apartment of their Giants teammate Frank Gifford.

I believe JFK & Lombardi were very close.  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 5/21/2020 8:02 pm : link
Funny story about the Kennedys & football: Ted Kennedy marries his first wife Joan Bennett in November '58. Later that day at the reception, Rose Kennedy looks around & sees JFK, RFK, & Ted are missing. Eventually she finds them in the kitchen watching the Army Navy game. Haha. I read that in a JFK biography. I always thought that was funny.
I doubt he actually is but take a look at

The Rock was probably a Giants fan because he knew that the Giants loved signing and drafting players from the greatest college football factory in the world...THE MIAMI HURRICANES.


And speaking of wrestling, I was surprised to learn about Arn Anderson being a Giants fan, but I've seen a photo of him wearing a Giants shirt.

Not only does bon jovi’s Music suck, he is now a pats fan. He’s addressed the disloyalty thing with a long winded explanation but I don’t wanna here it. I don’t care if bob kraft or belichick saved you’re entire family from a burning house...
Interesting, thanks  
gersh : 6/2/2020 6:18 pm : link
Seems he’s in a bromance with Kraft and claims an allegiance to Belichick
But unless you or your son plays for another team, allegiances to another team that late in life is weak.
