What All New York Giants Fans Are Feeling Right Now

Heads Not Held So High

Hopes and Dreams Getting Crushed

The season started with a loss against the Cowboys. Always upsetting to any fan of Big Blue, but the heads were kept high with hope for the rest of the season; hope that is very hard to find right now.

It's been all tricks and no treats for the New York Giants and their fans. With a record of 1 and 6 right now, the Giants have officially lost more games than last season. These are statistics no football fan ever wants to hear.

So what on earth happened?

Even without beloved Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall, this bad spell can't be blamed on injuries. For the Giants were 0-4 and on the way to 0-5 when Beckham, Marshall and Dwayne Harris were lost for the season, and shortly following that another one bit the dust with Sterling Shepard and a sprained ankle. It seems as if the New York Giants cannot find the positivity the team needs.

Perhaps there's still some hope the Giants and their fans can hold onto... a high pick in the 2018 draft. Beloved Quarterback Eli Manning says “It’s even more important — don’t let the outside world affect what we’re doing. Now it’s about us playing for each other.”

So now, nine games left, with fans and players at a loss of what to think. “I would say at some point it’s got to come down to pride,” Vereen said. “It’s got to come down to, ‘I’m a man, I’m with other men on this team, we’re a band of brothers and each week we’re going to go fight, we’re going to play as hard as we can.’ The outcomes definitely haven’t been what we wanted them to be. We all know that. We’re still going to go out every Sunday after this bye week and fight and fight. We got nine games left and we’re going to try to play the best Giants football we can.”


The definition of a fan is a person who has a strong interest in or admiration for a particular person or thing. Even though Big Blue fans might be feeling a little disappointment at this time, our hearts still belong to that band of brothers who we know are trying as hard as they can. As a lifelong, die hard fan of the New York Giants, I am just trying to remember the high spirit, unified team that led their team all the way to Disney World in Superbowl XLVI.




Regardless of what this season had in store for the New York Giants, their fans will continue to support and love them. Big Blue Baby!

Sorry Not Sorry, My Parents Paid For My Coachella Trip

No haters are going to bring me down.

With Coachella officially over, lives can go back to normal and we can all relive Beyonce’s performance online for years to come. Or, if you were like me and actually there, you can replay the experience in your mind for the rest of your life, holding dear to the memories of an epic weekend and a cultural experience like no other on the planet.

And I want to be clear about the Beyonce show: it really was that good.

But with any big event beloved by many, there will always be the haters on the other side. The #nochella’s, the haters of all things ‘Chella fashion. And let me just say this, the flower headbands aren’t cultural appropriation, they’re simply items of clothing used to express the stylistic tendency of a fashion-forward event.

Because yes, the music, and sure, the art, but so much of what Coachella is, really, is about the fashion and what you and your friends are wearing. It's supposed to be fun, not political! Anyway, back to the main point of this.

One of the biggest things people love to hate on about Coachella is the fact that many of the attendees have their tickets bought for them by their parents.

Sorry? It’s not my fault that my parents have enough money to buy their daughter and her friends the gift of going to one of the most amazing melting pots of all things weird and beautiful. It’s not my fault about your life, and it’s none of your business about mine.

All my life, I’ve dealt with people commenting on me, mostly liking, but there are always a few that seem upset about the way I live my life.

One time, I was riding my dolphin out in Turks and Cacaos, (“riding” is the act of holding onto their fin as they swim and you sort of glide next to them. It’s a beautiful, transformative experience between human and animal and I really think, when I looked in my dolphin’s eye, that we made a connection that will last forever) and someone I knew threw shade my way for getting to do it.

Don’t make me be the bad guy.

I felt shame for years after my 16th birthday, where my parents got me an Escalade. People at school made fun of me (especially after I drove into a ditch...oops!) and said I didn’t deserve the things I got in life.

I can think of a lot of people who probably don't deserve the things in life that they get, but you don't hear me hating on them (that's why we vote, people). Well, I’m sick of being made to feel guilty about the luxuries I’m given, because they’ve made me who I am, and I love me.

I’m a good person.

I’m not going to let the Coachella haters bring me down anymore. Did my parents buy my ticket and VIP housing? Yes. Am I sorry about that? Absolutely not.

Sorry, not sorry!

Here's Why I Hate That I'm Enjoying The Sixers Playoff Series

I'm not too keen on Philadelphia sports, but I can't stop watching the 76ers.

This may be a dangerous and bold statement, being that I live in the Philly area, but I'll say it anyway. I can't stop following the Philadelphia 76ers, and I HATE it. I come from a family who supports New York sports and New York sports only, so I may have just become the family's biggest disappointment.

Philly sports go against everything I believe in. The fans are obnoxious, and New York is often a rival of them. When I went to school at West Chester University I was overwhelmed with all of the Philly fans, and was not very happy. During the past three years Villanova won two College Basketball Championships, and the Eagles won the Super Bowl (which they still haven't let us forget). So, I've been even more annoyed with this large fanbase than I already was.

Recently, however, the 76ers have really captivated me. I'm a huge College Basketball fan, but I've never been big into the NBA. I follow the bare-minimum because think it's overrated, so I've never had a team to obsess over. But, this year it has certainly changed.

The Sixers have really made their mark in the NBA this season. Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons have played incredibly, and posed a threat to every team. Their athleticism and intelligence while playing the game of basketball in unreal, which has, unfortunately completely lured me onto the Sixers bandwagon.

I've never been one to hop on the bandwagon, but I just can't help myself. The playoffs, which started on Saturday, April 14, really excited me, and I. Can't. Stand. It. They couldn't be stopped in game one, and dominated the Heat for most of the game, coming on top in the end. The second game, however did not play in the favor of the Sixers, but they still kept it close and made things interesting.

The rest of the series, and hopefully, the rest of the playoffs should be an exciting time for Philadelphia and their fans. I never thought these words would leave my mouth, but I can't wait to follow the Sixers on their playoff journey.
