    NEW YORK DAILY NEWS ^ | Sunday, July 5, 2015, 5:27 PM | Justin Tasch
    Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul injured his hand in a Fourth of July fireworks accident, according to multiple reports. A radio host for WINZ in Miami tweeted that Pierre-Paul “severely injured” his hand, and multiple reports have confirmed Pierre-Paul suffered an injury. The extent of Pierre-Paul's injuries are unknown, but it appears he is not in danger of losing his hand and his injuries were not believed to be career-threatening, according to a source. The Giants did not confirmed or denied the story when contacted by the Daily News. Several Twitter users shared photos of a U-Haul truck full of...

    A man who smirked as he was sentenced in the savage beating of a San Francisco Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium wants a federal judge to spare him from another lengthy prison sentence for an unrelated gun crime. Louie Sanchez’s handwritten letter prays for mercy in the crime discovered as police investigated the 2011 attack on baseball’s opening day that left Bryan Stow with permanent brain damage. “The outcome of the situation I don’t wish upon nobody,” Sanchez wrote in his letter to Judge Fernando Olguin. “Unfortunately, Mr. Stow got hurt and I send my deepest sympathy to Mr. Stow...

    The San Francisco Giants fan beaten outside Dodger Stadium on Thursday threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the home opener for the San Jose Giants, a team where he used to be a paramedic before he was left brain damaged in the attack four years ago. "It's a comeback story," said Dan Orum, president and CEO of the San Jose Giants, who faced off against the Bakersfield Blaze on Thursday. "Just to see what he's come through, and to be able to give him something back like this — it's just the kind of thing that resonates with everybody."...

The reigning baseball and football champions, along with baseball's small-market Tampa Bay Rays, are among the thousands of businesses, religious groups, advocacy organizations and politicians who are filing legal briefs at the Supreme Court in support of gay marriage. The Patriots play in Massachusetts, the first state to allow same-sex couples to marry, and the Giants represent a city that is notable for its gay and lesbian community. Rays president Brian Auld said it was important that his team stand up, as well. "We're a small...

    Big business has come out in favor of same-sex marriage. Exactly 379 corporations and employer organizations urged the Supreme Court to strike down state bans on gay marriage, according to a friend-of-the-court brief obtained by The Huffington Post. The document was expected to be filed late Thursday morning. “Employers are better served by a uniform marriage rule that gives equal dignity to employee relationships,” reads the brief, filed by global law firm Morgan Lewis. “Allowing same-sex couples to marry improves employee morale and productivity, reduces uncertainty, and removes the wasteful administrative burdens imposed by the current disparity of state law...

It doesn’t matter that the absurd, the grossly inaccurate and the just plain stupid easily can be eliminated. It is what it is. And that’s it. There will be no deviation from, let alone elimination of, the ridiculous, no matter how self-evident.

Bumgarner carried a shutout into the seventh inning, Hunter Pence homered early and the Giants showed off their October poise, putting a sudden stop to the Kansas City Royals' perfect postseason roll by romping 7-1 in the Series opener Tuesday night.

    Baseball games aren't won or lost on one catch, are they? The game between the Nationals and Giants last night just may have been. Hunter Pence of the Giants made a spectacular catch to rob Jayson Werth of the Nationals of an extra-base hit, and this photo became an instant classic. But it's more than a great sports shot. The crowd behind the chain-link watching the catch is pure Norman Rockwell. I think this photo captures the America we love, and would like to have back someday.

The fan was approached by two Native Americans who asked for the headdress and then refused to give it back, according to a report from USA Today.

    Many New England communities have within them dirt-covered stone “mounds,” dug into the earth and meticulously lined and covered with stones; some of the stones that cover the tops weigh tons. Some would say they are the remnants of root cellars, but an Ashfield man who for 15 years has studied the ancient stonework thinks otherwise. James E.

Brandon Crawford sacrificed, nearly bunting the ball past Coke. Angel Pagan struck out and Scutaro singled into short center field as Theriot slid home ahead of Austin Jackson's throw.

    INDIANAPOLIS -- On one last Hail Mary try, Tom Brady heaved it up for his two star tight ends in the end zone. Neither Rob Gronkowski or Aaron Hernandez, who both got a hand in the play, could come down with it. The New York Giants beat the New England Patriots 21-17 in Super Bowl XLVI, the second time the Giants beat the Patriots in the last four years in the NFL's title game. Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw scored the go-ahead touchdown with 0:57 left in the game.
