If you're in NYC today, avoid the Rockefeller Center area. NYC Giants head Wellington Mara's funeral is today. He was a big supporter of conservative causes and I had the honor of meeting him once and his graciousness shone through him. Rest in peace you man of men.

He was? Another reason I'm glad to be a Giants fan.
I don't really care about football but most everyone I know roots for the Jets so I find myself rooting for them too. Except when I'm watching a game with my lone Cowboys fan friend.
Pardon, but NYC Giants?
And admire him for his conservatism if you want, but he did a lot to make the NFL the lucrative business it is today. Revenue sharing? His idea.
I am a Jet fan but Mara was greater than the game. That was one hell of a man. I dont believe in heaven but if he does, and if there isnt one already, he'll build one.
