Ironic, NY has more colleges than any other city in the US. The irony is that unlike the rest of the country, we don't really have a decent college football team to support. Hell, most colleges don't even have a football team so there is nothing to cheer about during football season. Mostly, because there isn't a decent team to be found anywhere within the city limits.
So our entire sports focus & hunger goes onto our professional teams. So when players say the NY fans are the most incredible fans in the world, they're right!
Yay for the Giants, the Yanks & the Rangers!!!
