Giants To Celebrate Super Bowl Win At MetLife Stadium After Ticker-Tape Parade

NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — New Jersey will be honoring the Super Bowl champion New York Giants following their ticker-tape parade through Lower Manhattan’s Canyon of Heroes on Tuesday.

Gov. Chris Christie will be on hand at Met Life Stadium for a rally set to begin at 3 p.m.

Christie told WFAN on Monday morning, “I think the Maras and the Tisches are very sensitive to the fact they have both New York fans and New Jersey fans. All the facilities are in our state and most of their players live in our state. I think they are going to try to work something out for the residents of New Jersey. We’ve been supporting the Giants big since 1976 when they came to our state.”

Following a ceremony at City Hall in Manhattan, the Giants will board a bus and head over to the Meadowlands for the parking lot party.

A similar celebration was held at Giants Stadium following the team’s Super Bowl win in 2008.

The Giants captured the franchise’s fourth Super Bowl championship on Sunday, with a 21-17 victory over the New England Patriots.

New York only trails Pittsburgh with six, and San Francisco and Dallas with five, and became the first team to win the title after finishing the regular season 9-7.

The Giants had an up-and-down year, but finished with wins over the New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys, securing the NFC East title, before winning four consecutive postseason games.

    TELL ME DRP, WHAT HAVE THE GIANTS OR ANY OTHER GREEDY FOOTBALL, BASEBALL OR BASKETBALL PLAYERS DONE FOR HUMANITY? AND HOW EDUCATED TO YOU HAVE TO BE TO THROW A BALL? I CAN ASSURE YOU I HAVE MORE EDUCATION THAN ALL TEAM MEMBERS (HEROES YEAH SURE) COMBINED. THE FOOLS ARE THE PEOPLE WHO SPEND THEIR MONEY ON TICKETS AND MERCHANDISE. TIME TO ACT LIKE GROWNUPS.

      don’t belive we are ignorant Deb, but rather looking for a small distraction from our very busy, complicated lives. We all have 6 thousound things to do all the while trying to make due with less and remain thankful for what we do have. We’ve got GOP clowns and incompetents in Washington trying to tell us how to live our lives so please, enough already. In the name of all that is good, kind and neighborly let poeple celebrate with abandon adn without your judgement. You seem passionate, volunteer somewhere and really make a difference.

    AND PEOPLE SAY CEO’S ARE GREEDY. THESE FOOTBALL, BASKETBALL AND BASEBALL PLAYERS ARE THE EPITOME OF GREED IN AMERICA MAKING MILLIONS FOR PLAYING A GAME. THE AMOUNT OF TV TIME AND PARADES DEDICATED TO THIS JUST SHOWS THE DECLINE OF SOCIETY AND EXPLOITATION OF THE LESS FORTUNATE THAT ARE IGNORED.

    Hoboken should honor Mr. Hoboken Eli Manning. The season started with Eli practicing at Hoboken High School during the lock out. And heck since the Mayor of Hoboken cancelled our St. Patrick’s Day Parade we all can wear green.
