Stadium Stories: New York Giants
In 1925, Tim Mara, a bookmaker (a legal occupation at the time), as well as a successful businessman and promoter, purchased the New York Giants for $500. That year the city of New York was introduced to professional football by a Giants team that lost its first three games, but finished 8-4. In the ensuing 80 years, the Giants have been one of the country''s
most popular and successful professional sports franchises. The Giants have played more than 1,100 games, won approximately 600 of them, finished in first place a record 20 times and won six championships. Many of the most influential men to ever appear on the pro football
landscape, and many of the game''s great players, have been Giants, including Wellington Mara, Steve Owen, Mel Hein, Vince Lombardi, Frank Gifford, Roosevelt Brown, Y.A. Tittle, Lawrence Taylor and, more recently, Tiki Barber and Michael Strahan. No National Football League team has a richer history than the Giants.
