The Big Orange Apple

Last Thursday, the New York Giants made Syracuse offensive tackle Justin Pugh their first round of the 2013 NFL Draft. As a die-hard fan of both the Giants and Syracuse football, I was thrilled to be able to continue rooting for Pugh. However, my night was marred slightly by former Orange quarterback Ryan Nassib.

With the Patriots and Giants set to square off in the Super Bowl, I didn’t have much of a choice when it came to the Video of the Week… Eli Manning to David Tyree in Super Bowl XLII was one of the greatest plays in the history of football, and I hope there will be more magic like this play this year.
