Giants have a ShamWow-style approach for today’s conditions

vinceshlomi_244x183 AP

Inclement weather in San Francisco has raised concerns about the extent to which rain could impact the NFC title game.

The Giants prepared by practicing with wet balls.  (Um.  Yeah.)  They’ll also have a secret weapon tucked inside their hand warmers.

Rachel Nichols of ESPN reports that a ShamWow-style shammy cloth will be inserted into the devices worn by the receivers and quarterback Eli Manning.

Hopefully that will be the extent of their homage to Vince Shlomi, and that Giants players won’t unwind after the game with any slap-chopping or hooker-punching.

Allegedly.

    I think the Niner fans probably have the hooker-punching covered.

    Good idea until it gets completely soaked and can’t absorb anymore water.

    Watch the Giants get slap-chopped right off the field by the 49ers.

    Look at that dude….would you buy something from him?

    Either team could pull this one off…with or without hooker-punching Sham-“pows”…

    I’d like to see Eli prove to everyone he is elite and win his 2nd SB.

    What are they gonna beat up some hookers?

  11. FinFan68 says: Jan 22, 2012 1:01 PM

    Ok. The Giants are in San Francisco, playing with wet balls, and are going to use clean-up towels promoted by Vince “you’re gonna love my nuts” Schlomi. Got it.

  12. dtm1088 says: Jan 22, 2012 1:02 PM

    Haha. If Vince’s picture doesn’t say “I punched a hooker” I don’t know what does…

    I’m pretty sure when that happens, their instincts to wring out their gloves will take over.

    *polishing the trophies*

    Haha, Mike I never thought I’d see you use the term “hooker-punching.”

    Now, just to put things in perspective, if this were the Pats putting Sham-Wow’s in their gloves, they would be called cheaters or worse. The Giants do it, and it’s brilliant!

  18. sf49ers4 says: Jan 22, 2012 1:20 PM

    If they give them one or a hundred, it’s pouring in SF. They’re gonna get soaked and be pointless.

    I can see it now… Oh wait, don’t call hike yet I’m still trying to sham wow my gloves. Call timeout call timeout.

    Hopefully the Giants got in on the deal early (because Vince said he couldn’t do it all day) and got a second set for free.

    Giants are the SHAM
    Niners are the WOW !

    Niners/Pats SuperBowl

    “If they give them one or a hundred, it’s pouring in SF. They’re gonna get soaked and be pointless.”

    I used to think California had a decent public school system, but you are reaching Philadelphia Eagle fan level of stupid. You do realize it rains in NY and the Giants play outdoors, don’t you? They’ve seen and played in the rain before. Seeing how it will be 49 degrees at kickoff, I’m guessing they’re pretty happy right now that it will be almost seventy degrees warmer than their last title game.

    Interesting that in the year of record breaking qbs, Joe Flacco and Alex Smith are playing today.

    If punching hookers is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

    Look at some of the jabo0ody dubz on YouTube of the shamwow and slap chop
