A Big Blue Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day! As Jim and Lauren nicely covered the romantic/literary side of the holiday, I thought I’d talk about another type of affection—namely, the love a man feels for his hometown football team!

Yes, I know it’s been over a week, but I haven’t had a chance yet to properly crow over the Giants’ victory in the Super Bowl. In a completely unavoidable coincidence, I was in Boston on Super Bowl Sunday for a family reunion. While the locals were certainly well behaved (in and around our hotel, at least), it’s not like I publicly advertized my allegiance before retiring to the security of our room to witness the glorious triumph. And by the time we got back to New York on Wednesday night, it seemed like everyone had, typically, just moved on…

Everyone, that is, except for publishers! According to the always reliable folks at the New York Post, books are on the way from Victor Cruz and coach Tom Coughlin, while editors are supposedly lamenting Eli’s lack of interest in writing a book right now.

I have to say, I feel a little torn about Cruz and Coughlin. Not that their literary pursuits are all that surprising—it’s Super Bowl tradition for the winners to capitalize any way they can, and being a New York team the Giants have always been well-courted by the publishing industry (BTW, kudos to Justin Tuck for getting ahead of the curve with his picture book). But how much does Cruz, a rookie, really have to say? And what’s Coughlin going to write that’s any different from his last book, which tanked?

Well, until Eli changes his mind, I guess we’ll have to be satisfied with what the others come up with. But readers, are there any other players you want to hear from? Any other stories you’d like to read? Myself, I’d love to see a book from Bill Belichick on how he can’t seem to beat us in the big game (tee-hee)…
