New York Giants fans may not be in panic mode quite yet about the lockout and the possibility of missing a few games this season, but as the summer months pass I’m sure their anxiety will grow. Can you imagine an August without training camp or preseason games?
No face paint, no Eli Manning jerseys, and dare I say no game day libations!
Recently I had the opportunity to have up and coming comedian, Jordan Vanica, on my radio show. He is an avid sports fan and NFL enthusiast. His act is always packed full of funny sports jokes.
We began talking and he had some funny idea's on how NFC East fans could spend their time during the lockout.
New York Giants Fans
-Convince Aaron Ross' wife Sanya Richards, Olympic gold medalist, to join the team at corner. A secondary with her, Aaron, Terrell Thomas, Prince Amukamara, Kenny Phillips and Antrel Rolle would be great.
-Participate in NY Giants punting tryouts. Just remember DON'T KICK THE BALL TO DESEAN!!
Dallas Cowboys Fans
-Start the petition for Troy Aikman to come out of retirement and play again, since it’s becoming increasingly obvious Tony Romo may have reached his full potential. One playoff win.
-Prevent any sabotage of Tony Romo's relationship with former Miss Missouri Candice Crawford. Cowboy’s fans know how his other past relationships affected his games. Everyone remembers his botched hold on the last second field goal.
Philadelphia Eagles Fans
-Draw up defensive schemes and send them to Juan Castillo. You never know, you may know more about defense than an offensive line coach turned Defensive Coordinator.
-Turn off any sports channel on television until the first game of the season. That way you can be surprised when the Eagles don't make a big splash in free agency...again.
Washington Redskins Fans
-Start warming up their arm for the eventual tryouts the Redskins are bound to have at the quarterback position. Someone in the DC area HAS to be better than John Beck or Rex GrossMAN.
-Hide their wallets. It’s only a matter of time before Dan Snyder comes up to the DC residents with his hand out looking for cash. How else is he going to greatly overpay mediocre athletes the millions and millions of dollars they don't deserve?
-Start following baseball. With the emergence of Stephen Strasburg last year, landing Bryce Harper in the draft, and the addition of Jayson Werth via free agency; the Nationals could make great strides in the years ahead. This is more than I can say about the Redskins.
I want to thank Jordan Vanica and remind everyone that all of his suggestions were made in jest. With the very real possibility of missing part of the season we should all remember to laugh a bit. Even if it is to keep from crying.
Oh... did I mention he is a diehard Philadelphia Eagles fan
