Giants Football

My dad is a HUGE NY Giants football fan! You can find us in front of the TV whenever they play and normally we're eating either my dad's special tomatoe sauce over oonies or pizza! I love them both equally!
When the temperatures get a little bit cooler, the fireplace is started and that makes it even more cozy! Mom always lights a scented candle and she knits or needle felts or quilts! It's Sunday tradition!

I'm in dad's Tiki Barber's practice jersey! Do you think they'd let me run a few plays with them?

When dad was sick and he was waiting for his heart transplant, he dreamed of the NY Giants visiting him in CTICU and having them shake his hand. Well, that didn't happen! There are just too many guys and they're too big for that little space! heheheh

But what he did get was a signed Tiki Barber practice jersey! Can you see Tiki's signature to the left of his name?

Dad also got an official NFL football signed by two of the players! One of the players was Ron Dayne and the other one was Jason Sehorn. Is this cool or what?! We were totally blown away by their generosity!

These items are very sacred to us and they're displayed every time the Giants play! You sport's fans know exactly what I mean, don't you! And they have to be in the same exactly place in the family room week after week or else!
So we're all set for today's game! We have a beautiful day we have here today! Temps are coolish and the aire is crisp! What a fabulous day to watch some NY Giants football!
So until next time..................
Love ya lots,

Hey M&M, Maggie you are abolustely the luckiest dog alive to get to wear the sacred jersey. Our mom isn't a big sports fan, but she loves traditional things. your entire day, with the cool crisp air and the special treats and everyone gathered together sounds really fun. Enjoy. We hope your team wins!

Well, it doesn't look good for the Giants but you look really SMASHING in that jersey! That's pretty cool that the Giants sent that stuff to your dad. He's a lucky guy to get a new heart and Giants stuff AND he gets to live with you and Mitch!


ps. I think that the foodables are the best part of football, too!

Girasol said...

little by little I'm trying to undestand football.

Jackson said...

I like Sunday routines, but they don't really revolve around sport in our house! It was very nice of the team to send that stuff to your Dad. I hope they win today! J x

Scruffy & Lacie said...

Cool jersey, Maggie! How nice they sent that to ur Dad!! And how convenient for you to wear it to cover up the ALL OVER sunburn you got yesterday!! Enjoyed your zuchini er bikini pics (always get that work confused..) as by the time I saw u there was NO bikini!! Mitch still had his trunks on though...I noticed them when we were socializing behind the palm tree. Busy place, that palm tree. Scruffy has diaper rash today...Mumsie bought him size 18 mo. trunks, and he needed a 2T. He couldn't get 'em off and had to sit in a wet bathing suit all the way home this morning. Poor guy.

Need to continue resting...we took a NAP DURING the Steeler game today.

Putter said...

Awesomest Ever Jersey Maggie! That is so coolest! Can you ask your Dad if I can borrow it sometime?

Talk to you soonest!

Your Friend,

Putter ...:)

Sir Chance-Lot said...

hehe, your house sounds like our house on Sundays, and Fridays and any other night there are football on tv, except mamma is not too into it, she says she grew up in Europe, where American football is not important.
But My big pappa, he LOVES it like your pappa, specially if food is involved too!!
we should get those two together..hehe.
You guys look adorable and very real football players in your jerseys!
This is the season of warm big sweaters,no more worries about fitting into our bathing suits and losing weight, and Apple pies, stews, and home baked breads!!! I just have to get mamma on the same mind track..hehe.
Golden Love

Preston said...

That's definitely super cool! I am sure you all had a good time no matther how the game turned out.

Kirby said...

Hi Maggie,

I love football Sundays too! Due to geographical reasons, I'm partial to the Chicago Bears, but football is #1 with me!


Isis said...

my hoomans are huge yankee fans...

this one time, sister asked chuck knoblauch (sp?) for a ball while he was practicing with the team... ( a long time ago ) and he threw her a ball.

Dad tried to catch it but missed... and some kid grabbed it and ran off with it! She was soooo mad!

It was a sad day for all of us. However, she kind of lost interest in the game once the team fell apart, but my parents both still watch them every single game!


Lorenza said...

Hi, Maggie.
Your dad got cool stuff! Sure is a treasure! Glad you had the chance to wear that jersey!
Good luck to your team!
Have a good night

Huskee Boy said...

Hi Maggie & Mitch,
I totally, completely understand.. My dad is a Man-U fanatic and everytime there is a match on, his eyes are glued to the TV (and his hands on the remote control in case mom changes the channel!!)

T-man said...

We don't watch football here, but your Sunday tradition sounds like lots of fun. Mom, CC-man and I need to start a tradition other than lying around reading and eating snacks :)

Bogart said...

Miss Maggie,

I don't understand football, but I do understand how it makes me feel to see you wearing that shirt... hubba hubba!


Scrappy and Pebbles said...

Our dad is a sports fanatic so we understand totally. In fact even though we are in Au he loves American football. Our mom only likes to watch tennis,

Football seems to be happy.
To tell the truth, the television of football is not done in Japan.
It is regrettable.

from loved ume tyan

Momo :) said...

Maggie!! You look gweat in that jersey! I think you should join the team.

Momo xoxo

Ferndoggle said...

We LOVE football Sunday. Mom has a similar tradition...light a fire & a candle & eat pizza. She always shares with us!

But she spends a lot of time yelling at the TV. We hate yelling. That's the only downside.

Johann The Dog said...

Oh we big football fans too! But we live in Colts country, sorry! Mum used to be a Cowboys fan when she lived in Dallas and has signed stuff from them - Troy Aikman, Jerry Jones and others. Too cool you have stuff too!

May the best team win!!! Go Football!

Woofs, Johann

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Maggie & Mitch,
That is so neat that they sent those things for your Papa when he was so sick. They are special things indeed. And you look so cute wearing the jersey.
We napped yesterday cause we were so tuckered out from Chilli's pawty. Sure was fun wasn't it??
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

We're only fans of the Oklahoma State Cowboys. They have taught us how to lose gracefully, if nothin' else.

Hope your Giants score big!

Suki said...

I am very jealous that it's getting nice and cool up there. My grandma is going to Maine next week for a whole month!!

I am so glad your Dad got a transplant...and how sweet of the Giants to send such wonderful pressies to him! :)

Puggy kisses

Ruby Bleu said...

My Mom being a former 'Jersey Girl' she knows all about the Giants! In fact that is my Nanny's favoritest team too!!!

Go Giants!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

ROSSI said...

Joe Stains said...

Those Giants sure were nice to give your Dad those pressies. We love football!

Sophie Brador said...

You look surprisingly fabulous in that jersey. I never had you pegged as a football player, but perhaps this is your calling. or at least a football jersey model.

Ben_Benjamin said...

Oh Maggie, we dont have football game here but we got soccer and that make my dad behave like your hooman too.

Simba said...

Mitch looks very macho in his shirt.

Reina said...


I love to watch the soccer game with my parents too! Too bad i am too small to wear a jersey!

I will bark when my favourite team scored a goal!


The Army of Four said...

I love to PLAY football! That's really fun!
We tagged you guys in a new game - stop by and check it out!

Koobuss said...

What great stuff, Maggie!!

My mom really liked Tiki Barber and was sorry to see him retire.

I'm glad that your dad is doing well. Good luck to him this season.

Koobuss Kisses,

Stanley said...


You look fabuloso in your dad's commemorative jersey! Bootiful and ready to hit the field! (I had no IDEA you were a big football nut).

I too love the photo of you with the ball ~ it shows off the curls on top of your punkin head.

Goober love,
