How psyched about the opportunity to bid on the 2014 Super Bowl are the Giants?
So psyched that they and the Jets are actually having a ceremony where their owners and players will sign the official bid book before it gets shipped off to the NFL. The rest of the owners are expected to consider the teams' bid, along with those from Tampa and South Florida, at the league meeting May 25.
Eli Manning and Ottis Anderson, Giants president and CEO John Mara, and vice president Steve Tisch are expected to represent the Giants, while Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, Curtis Martin, bid committee co-chairman and owner Woody Johnson, and Mark Lamping, the president and CEO of the New Meadowlands Stadium Company, will also sign.
Have to feel this thing is going to go through, or commissioner Roger Goodell would not have thrown his full-fledged support behind it last year.
