Giants fans don’t give a shit about history

That end zone there? Might as well say “Patriots.”

Thousands of New York Giants fans -- in a move that screams passion, loyalty, dedication and other nice descriptors -- are selling their tickets to Saturday’s game against New England, when the Pats will attempt to be the first NFL team ever to complete a 16-0 regular season.
More than 200 [Giants fans] put tickets for the Patriots game up for auction on eBay within 24 hours of the 38-21 victory over the Bills. There were also 3,000 tickets up for auction Monday afternoon on StubHub.
Frankly, we can’t blame them. The Giants clinched the 5-seed in the playoffs and a first-round match-up against the Bucs. They’re going to rest their starters. And geez, New York’s a freakin’ expensive place (we’re vacationing there in January and might have to mortgage our future to do so. But we kinda can’t wait). Given the chance to make a buck, we might jump at it.

But to aggressively shop them?
One sales pitch urged potential buyers to ‘BE A PART OF HISTORY!’ Others offered parking passes.
The game's on NFL Network...a chance to BE A PART OF HISTORY! parking passes...

We’re there!

There is no freakin' way that Carl from ATHF is selling his ticket.

All these mooks around here were dumb enough to make a mayor out of the head Boston schmuck, who has been bleeding us dry at every turn. The Apple is now infested with his ilk. It's only fair that some NYers can make a few bucks off of them.

With the parking set-up (some may have experienced it if they infiltrated the Jets game on Week 1), they'll be lucky to even make it to the game. It will remind them of the old Foxborough.

Can't blame anyone that sells their tickets. Those tickets are so hard to get that people should take any chance to make a return on the investment. Besides, selling these tickets would pay for airfare and a playoff game in Tampa.

I can't blame them for selling their ticket, they know their team is gonna lose and some of them can get enough money to buy NEXT year's season tickets with that money alone.
