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

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

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

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

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. “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.

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