Great news, Giants fans. Looks like we are set for many solid years ahead. Anyone has Giants season tickets ?
New York Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, who interviewed for the Redskins' head coaching job the past three days, has decided to stay in New York.
Spagnuolo was not offered the Redskins job but his agent Bob LaMonte said "it didn't matter because his heart is in New York City."
"The Redskins were great ... it was a great interview," LaMonte said.
The Giants are also giving Spagnuolo a new three-year contract in excess of $2 million per year, which would make him the league's highest-paid defensive coordinator.
"I appreciated Mr. Snyder giving me the opportunity to visit with him," Spagnuolo said. "I have a great deal of respect for him and the Washington Redskins organization. I was happy to have the opportunity to explore that situation, but I am equally happy to be staying in New York and look forward to continued success with the Giants."
Nearly 300 Patriots 19-0 T-shirts (mostly in XXXL size :D) and caps have arrived in Nicaragua for hundreds of children with a few thousand more yet to come. There's a small photo gallery of the kids enjoying their new shirts at the NY Post link below.
Thousands of additional shirts and caps are on the way, as the NFL donates all the unsellable Patriots "championship" gear that was manufactured before the team's historic loss.
The gear is part of a sad, dreamed-up fantasyland that included the team trying to trademark the term "19-0," and "19-0: The Perfect Season" - three weeks before the Super Bowl was played.
Pats supporters tempted the jinx gods even further when staffers from the New York Times-owned Boston Globe authored a snoozer of a book, "19-0: The Historic Championship Season of New England's Unbeatable Patriots."
The book was being sold on Amazon.com as early as late January - a week before the game.
