NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The blackout has been lifted.
Less than three weeks after a popular Manhattan gentlemen’s club pulled the plug on airing Giants games inside its establishment, the folks at Rick’s Cabaret have had a change of heart.
One win can do that.
The club announced Wednesday it is lifting its self-imposed ban on Big Blue and will be showing Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles — that is if anyone needs any further distraction once inside the establishment.
Rick’s Cabaret management released the following statement, according to website BustedCoverage.com:
“The NY Giants will be back on the High-Def TVs and big screens at Rick’s Cabaret New York, the popular gentlemen’s club in midtown Manhattan that features over 100 topless exotic dancers performing daily.”
“It was upsetting to watch the Giants lose every week, and that’s why we stopped showing their games,” said Rick’s Cabaret girl “Monica.” “But now they’ve won their first game and we will put them back on our TVs.”
Added “Leanne”: ”I can’t take credit for the Giants’ first win, but I think the girls and I provided a little extra motivation to the team. Now they can say goodbye to losing and start winning.”
“Eli Manning and the Giants are out of the doghouse,” added “Vida.” “We’ve always loved Eli and we think he has turned things around.”
That’s not to say all of Rick’s girls have the Giants’ back.
“The Giants only won because Minnesota is so so so bad. I’m a Jets fan, and Geno Smith is the man!” “Valerie” said.
The whole thing started when the Giants lost to the Eagles back in Week 5. Management claimed the club’s patrons were so upset by the defeat, which at the time dropped Big Blue to 0-5, the losing was impacting the club’s bottom line.
The Giants started 0-6, but put things together Monday with a 23-7 win over Minnesota at MetLife Stadium.
