I'm sure Shockey is drunk right now, but that's not what I picked. Laughing

I was born into it. I was born and lived in New Brunswick until 3rd grade when I moved to South Jersey, Eagles territory. I didn't even start following football until 4th grade really, when I started playing football myself. The fact that my entire family is big Giants fans, I hated the obnoxious Eagles fans in my town, and Tiki Barber, I became a Giants fan. In 7th grade I joined this forum, and the rest is history.

1. Born into it.
2. They do things the right way(i.e. building through the draft)
3. Generally don't take headcases / character issues

Ahhahha. Well can't lie. I am drunk. At least it wasn't another Eli for Tebow trade thread...hehe.

Anyway I should of been a Pats fan. But my Grandfather was a Giants fan and I followed in his footsteps. My Dad isn't very happy about it though Cool

Born into it. My dad and my grandpa were Giant fans even though they are nowhere close to where I live. Come to think of it I didn't have much choice on any of the teams I cheer for but I wouldn't have it any other way haha

I went for 'Eli man crush' but it needs a bit more explanation!

About 6-7 years ago I moved into my own house and signed up for Sky Sports (our satellite service over here in the UK) immediately! There wasn't really ever much on telly on a Sunday night, so I stuck the NFL on. I didn't really know what was going on, but there was a team there with Manning at quarterback.
My policy with all my sports teams is to follow the first team I sit down and watch, and seeing as I had heard of a Manning before (obviously his brother thinking back!), the Giants became my team.
Seven years on, the NFL has overtaken football for me as my favourite sport and I have about 8 jerseys, been to the Wembley game 3 times (including our game) and regularly book mornings off work during the season so I can stay up and watch Big Blue!

Sorry for the long story but I love getting nostalgic about this stuff Smile

Thanks for sharing. Even though most of the answers will be people were born into it. There are quite a few displaced fans on here. Have to say I've made much worse drunken threads lol

I am a contraraian. While everyone in the neighborhood was cheering on the yanks for winning, I chose to be a fan of the mets. While everyone was on rooting for the Testavarde and the Jets I chose Kent Graham and the Giants.

I couldn't even imagine how horrible we would be right now if that happened. Probably have Colt Mccoy as our QB or something. Laughing
