Giants parade will be televised, by NBC Sports Network

On Tuesday, the Giants will celebrate their Super Bowl XLVI championship with a parade.  And you can watch it on NBC Sports Network, beginning at 11:00 a.m. ET.

And this is the part where I try to come up with more stuff to say in order to turn this commercial for NBC Sports Network into something more substantial.

But I can’t.  The parade happens today.  It’ll be televised by NBC Sports Network.  And now you know that.

We return you to your regular PFT programming.

    If confetti falls in the forest and nobody is watching, does it make a sound?

    Nice. I like the fact that the Giants are getting a parade, but I don’t understand why Mayor Bloomberg is willing to do this, while at the same time refusing to hold a parade for returning veterans from Iraq and/or Afghanistan.

    Political correctness can sure mess up one’s priorties.

    It kills me to see NY tax dollars go to this parade when they are the NEW JERSEY Giants! They aren’t a NY team.
    Have your parade in some NJ downtown!!!

    it kills me that mayor bloomburg allows a super bowl parade but no parade for the troops coming home from iraq…anyone else find this a sad commentary on that city and government

    NY doesn’t pay for the parade. the last one cost $330k and was funded by money raised by the NYFD. and besides its the market they play for dumbass, not where they play.

    Wow, NY City refuses to host a parade for our hero Troops, but a football team gets to be treated to a nice parade. Way to go liberals.

    NY needs to find their own team . If they want part of the Giants pay back the Jersey tax payers since 1976 .

    Everyone posting about not allowing a parade for veterans, which I am, doesn’t get it. They decided it was premature to throw a parade while we still have so many troops in Afghanistan. Get it? We’d be celebrating having our troops home when they aren’t all home. When that war has ended we can truly celebrate.

    So let me get this straight. The Giants play at Met Life Stadium in the Meadowlands which is in New Jersey and now they are getting a parade in Manhattan with Governor Cuomo and Mayor Bloomberg. What’s wrong with this picture?

    You do realize that NJ already benefits by having the two NY teams play in East Rutherford, right? If Governor Christie tried to force the teams to change their name to NJ, both teams would move back to New York proper and NJ would then lose a ton of income.

    This argument came up when both teams first discussed moving to NJ and both teams said, “Fine, we’ll just have a stadium built in Long Island instead.” Face it, if it weren’t for the fact that Jersey City, Hoboken, East Rutherford, etc. being in the New York market and some of the southern NJ cities being in the Philadelphia market, Jersey would probably have half the population it currently does and they’d be one pretty broke state.

    I just read an article on how that network dropped the ball big time on their post game coverage so maybe this is to make up for that. I am a Pats fan so I switched it off about 3 minutes after the final gun but from what I understand there was only 13 minutes of it before they dumped it to cut to whatever dumb reality show they had on after it. Bad call IMO since NY is a huge market and I would guess a lot of the people watching the SB would be NYG fans and would WANT to see the post game over some singers or whatever that show was.

    World Champion New York Giants…. congratulations.

    Congratulations Giants fans. As much as it pains me to say it, your team played a great game. They made all the tackles, and all the catches (I can’t believe the catches!) Classic game, and now you’ve got a 2 time SB MVP on your hands. Unbelievable. Maybe the Pats will get a couple DE’s and we’ll see you in the big one again in a year or two.

    Well done by your team… better you guys than the Jets.

    Nice…yet another NY championship for jealous New Englanders to agonize about.

    I don’t know what saddens me more the fact that the Giants won a Superbowl or that the idiots on here have the courage (or lack of) to “thumbs down” people who are outraged that our soldiers dont get a parade. You people have some sick priorities.

    And what will they put MetLife on their backs and carry it across the river . NYC rides Jerseys coattails on everything They did try and go back across the river and NY said no thanks say in Jersey what was it no more then 5 years ago ? Do you hear Jersey saying that the Knicks ,rangers or anyother team that plays in NY are from Jersey NO they do have the Bills

  20. 2sausage11 says: Feb 7, 2012 12:46 PM

    Its funny but neither NY team is good enough to have their own stadium. Then they don’t even build it in their own state. Is there something in the water there that makes them have tourette syndrome?
