  • Chris Christie Calls Eli Manning 'Liar' Amid Memorabilia Scandal Allegations

    AP/Bleacher Report ^ | 4/14/2017 | Matt Ludtke
    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who is also an avid Dallas Cowboys fan, believes New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is lying about his role in an alleged memorabilia scandal. Serving as a guest host on Friday's Boomer & Carton radio show for WFAN, Christie spoke about Manning's situation by calling him a "liar" and "he got caught," per Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News. Kaja Whitehouse and Bruce Golding of the New York Post reported Manning was involved in a scheme selling fake game-used memorabilia, with court documents showing the Giants quarterback sent an email to equipment...
  • Giants defense terrorizes Cowboys as Beckham steals mammoth win

    A little crazy is an appropriate description of what went down in a truly strange and ultimately rewarding showing for the Giants. They could do almost nothing with the ball but thwarted the Cowboys’ precision attack so relentlessly and completely it was enough to overcome the failings of Manning and Co. When the harassing of Dak Prescott was complete and his final pass was ruled incomplete to struggling Dez Bryant — who in his nightmares will see Janoris Jenkins — the Giants had a stunning 10-7 victory to show for themselves.

    So Conor Gillaspie in 2016 is Marco Scutaro from 2012 or Travis Ishikawa from 2014 or Cody Ross from 2010, at least for one enormous Wild-Card game and that means it could go on and on again… And Madison Bumgarner in 2016 is… Madison Bumgarner, the perpetual postseason legend. That’s a two-paragraph summary of the Giants’ scintillating 3-0 Wild-Card victory over the Mets tonight, and yes, obviously, the patterns and connections from the previous three Giants postseason trips are impossible to ignore. You know who probably understands this better than anybody? That’d be the Cubs, who now face the Giants...
  • Madison Bumgarner and One Big Blast Leave the Mets Blanked and Blue

    The Mets pulled themselves back from the ledge of defeat many times: With Curtis Granderson’s wall-slamming catch in the sixth inning, with Syndergaard’s guile in a seventh-inning jam, and with Reed’s escape in the eighth. But Bumgarner would not be overcome. Bumgarner fired a complete-game shutout on 119 pitches. The Mets never got a runner to third base. As the taut game stretched on, it was clear the Mets were in trouble when Familia began to struggle. He blew three saves in the World Series last season, but his pitching was a reason the Mets had made it this far...

    SAN DIEGO – The Los Angeles Angels sought out a character reference on Tim Lincecum. They did not need to think twice about whom to call. “They asked my opinion,” said Bengie Molina, “and I gave it to them straight-up.” For all that Lincecum accomplished with Buster Posey, he always talks in glowing terms about Molina as the catcher who shepherded him as he broke into the big leagues, became his friend and support network besides his batterymate, and channeled his talents when he was at the height of his powers. While Molina does not hold an official title with...

    n the northern region of ancient Egypt, a large obelisk has been found, which is said to be the biggest ever discovered. The stone quarries in Aswan house, which is an unfinished obelisk, has mad scientists pull their hair out and cause a permanent denial for historians. A discovery like this is likely to split the academic community in two. Archaeologists are now arguing that the female pharaoh who where also known Hatshepsut, did actually sanction its construction. Of course, modern engineers, who are clearly in massive opposition, say that the Dynastic Egyptians did not have the type of technology...

    A Colorado man says he was kicked out of a baseball game after he tossed a home run ball back onto the field. Brandon Sanchez told KDVR that he, his wife and stepsons were enjoying the Colorado Rockies-San Francisco Giants game Tuesday night when the Giants hit a home run. The home run ball landed in Sanchez's hands. Although his stepsons were excited, Sanchez said he couldn't care less. “I threw the ball back just because it was San Francisco’s home run and I wanted the Story home run ball,” he said, referring to Rockies rookie shortstop Trevor Story. Moments...

    The Iroquois, the Osage, the Tuscaroras, the Hurons, the Omahas, and many other North American Indians all speak of giant men who once lived and roamed in the territories of their forefathers. All over what is now the U.S. are traditions of these ancient giants. Over 1000 accounts of seven-foot and taller skeletons have reportedly been unearthed from ancient burial sites over a two-hundred-year period in North America. Newspaper accounts, town and county histories, letters, scientific journals, diaries, photos and Smithsonian ethnology reports have carefully documented this. These skeletons have been reported from coast to coast with strange anatomic anomalies...

    The Left's highly selective application of today's standards to yesterday's heroes. The latest round of condemning the past on the moral criteria of the present started with banning the Confederate flag from public places. Now it is on to airbrushing away progressive old white guy Woodrow Wilson, in Trotskyized fashion, from public commemoration. But do those on the Left realize that they are rapidly becoming captives to the consequences of their own ideology? Their current effort to rewrite the past is doomed to failure for a variety of reasons. Left-Wing Hypocrisy First, this damnation of memory is not a balanced...

Lichtblau, who embarked on a five-day, eight baseball-game trip with his sons, wrote about his disappointment in Posey when the catcher waved his son off — twice — when asked for an autograph. The incident provided a "life lesson," Lichtblau wrote,...

    It was a brawl that forever defined one of sports' fiercest rivalries, with an ugliness that offered a new and frightening definition of sports violence. Yet, 50 years later, the most enduring memory of baseball's most famous fight is that it did not define the men. Monday marks the 13th anniversary of a far more powerful moment, one occurring at Roseboro's funeral, when, in a hall filled with old Dodgers, an old Giant suddenly walked to the lectern. It was Marichal, who wanted to say goodbye, and thank you.

    Archaeologists at Israel's Bar-Ilan University announced on Monday the discovery of a massive gate and other fortifications in the ruins of Gath, the hometown of the Bible's Goliath. The ancient gate is one of the largest ever discovered in Israel and evidence of the Philistine city's power in the 10th and ninth centuries B.C.E, head archaeologist Professor Aren Maeir says. It even made a brief appearance in the Bible when David, Goliath's slayer and future king of Israel, "acted like a madman, making marks on the doors of the gate and letting saliva run down his beard."

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 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...
