This past football season was the final season of football at Giants Stadium.
It opened on a rather sour note on October 10, 1976 with a Giants loss to the arch-rival Dallas Cowboys.
However, it went out with a bang on January 3rd of this past year as the New York Jets demolished the Cincinnati Bengals 37-0 to earn a playoff berth.
The venue was far more than the home of the new York Giants and New York Jets (since 1984).
It mosted many college football games as well as soccer games.
Countless concerts took place there. The 1994 FIFA World Cup was hosted there. Even Pope John Paul II held mass there.
Even though it wasn’t the nicest of stadiums, I’ll always have good memories of it.
It was where I saw my first football game and many more after that rooting for my New York Jets.
While the new stadium should no doubt be an upgrade, I’ll miss Giants Stadium.
I’ll never forget the last game there where the Jets trounced the Bengals. The place was going absolutely ballistic. It wa sunlike anything I have ever experienced at a football game.
With that, I say goodbye to Giants Stadium and hope the new stadium will bring just as many memories.
