Kissing Suzy Kolber:
The biggest drawback to the upcoming Super Bowl in New York Jersey is the inevitable bellyaching of sportswriters denied their annual vacation to a warm weather destination in the middle of winter. Iâd wager most of them are rooting for the event to be a disaster just so no city other than Miami, San Diego, Phoenix or New Orleans ever gets hosting rights ever again. Never mind that few things are more picturesque than football in the snow.
Thereâs no guarantee what the weather will be next February 2, but we do know there will be toboggan rides set up on Broadway during the week leading up to the game. Yes, sled rides! Weeeeeee! I bet Eli Manning intentionally throws the season just to make sure he wonât be otherwise occupied when the 58-foot toboggan rides are going on.
If possible, could the city also pump in a bunch of artificial snow like the kind at ski resorts? In case the weather doesnât cooperate, fans will want to pelt sports journalists with snowballs throughout Super Bow...

After being warned by coach Tom Coughlin that now was not the time to slack off, the New York Giants held their final workout before the start of training camp in late July.

A big factor for the success of the 2013 New York Giants will be how the running game dictates the Giants offense. Ahmad Bradshaw became a cut casualty due to his inability to stay healthy and his base salary affecting the ability for general manager Jerry Reese to remain under an air-tight salary cap. Bradshaw will forever be remembered as one of the toughest Giants of recent times...

I have stated all offseason that I didn't think free agent running back Ahmad Bradshaw would be a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2013, and now you can forget all about it possibly happening as Adam Schefter of ESPN reports Tuesday on Twitter that the former member of the New York Giants agreed to a one-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts.
According to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com, Giants quarterback Eli Manning told him that heâs texted back and forth with wide receiver Hakeem Nicks and expects him to show up for this weekâs minicamp.
