I was a single woman for a long time, enjoying a great lifestyle with dual careers as a recruiter AND travel writer.
Statements such as : “I don’t need a man to complete me, and I can take care of myself.” It was a given to me that I was self-sufficient and probably have been since a very young age, enhanced by the fact that my parentsdivorced when I was 8.Alhough I considered myself a happy and independent woman, I still wanted a husband and family. Did I learn from my mother who raised us in large part on her own?When I finally met the man I'd fall in love with and marry, I didn't anticipate he would come as a package deal which meant instant stepmom status for me, yahhh! The New York Giants are a professional American football team located in the New York metropolitan area.The Giants compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the league's National Football Conference (NFC) East division.
The team plays its home games in East Rutherford, New Jersey, at Met Life Stadium, which it shares with the New York Jets in a unique arrangement.
The Giants hold their summer training camp at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center at the Meadowlands Sports Complex.
The Giants were one of five teams that joined the NFL in 1925, and is the only one of that group still existing, as well as the league's longest-established team in the Northeastern United States.
The team ranks third among all NFL franchises with eight NFL titles: four in the pre–Super Bowl era (1927, 1934, 1938, 1956) and four since the advent of the Super Bowl (Super Bowls XXI (1986), XXV (1990), XLII (2007), and XLVI (2011)), along with more championship appearances than any other team, with 19 overall appearances.
Their championship tally is surpassed only by the Green Bay Packers (13) and Chicago Bears (9). To distinguish themselves from the professional baseball team of the same name, the football team was incorporated as the "New York National League Football Company, Inc." in 1929 and changed to "New York Football Giants, Inc." in 1937.
During their history, the Giants have featured 28 Hall of Fame players, including NFL Most Valuable Player (MVP) award winners Mel Hein, Frank Gifford, Y. Although the baseball team moved to San Francisco after the 1957 season, the football team continues to use "New York Football Giants, Inc." as its legal corporate name, and is often referred to by fans and sportscasters as the "New York Football Giants".
