|Giants Fan Since||1981|

|An out of market Giants fan since 1981. I was a junior in high school when the Giants drafted a linebacker with my same last name that was a man among boys in college. Living in NE Oklahoma at the time, the NFL fanbase was split between the closest team geographically (KC Chiefs) and the Dallas Cowboys. Always being somewhat of a rebel, I was drawn to the Cowboys rival (Giants) like a moth to a flame and so began a wild ride of being a Giants fanatic at the beginning of my adulthood.
I've been fortunate to witness this team go to 5 Superbowls, winning 4 in my time as a fan. I passed on my love of this team to both my daughter (located to San Francisco) and son (located to Wichita, KS).
It's not easy being an out of market fan with the challenges of following and representing the team in a division rivals market. But with the introduction of the internet and home computers came awesome team webpages and forums like BBI that was a God send to fans like myself!
2022 will most likely be one of the biggest off seasons of change in my lifetime and I'm very appreciative to have the resource of BBI to follow along.
I wasn't born a Giants fan...but I certainly will die as one. "NY til' I die! Go Giants!!!"
