Sack Exchange

Great story out of New York: a stockbroker who happens to be the son of the late Giants owner Wellington Mara went into work on Monday and was razzed by a rival trader who roots for the Eagles, after Philly beat the Giants on Sunday. So Mara responded the way any fan would- by attacking the man on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.

Even better is the account in the New York Post, in which various former Giants players talk about how great it was that their ex-owner's son assaulted another man. Ex-Giants receiver Phil McConkey chimes in that the problem with the actual Giants players is that they don't do that sort of thing often enough. But hey, it's the NBA that's too violent, right?

I'm just surprised Mara didn't respond to the Eagle fan with the usual Giant fan method, which is to point out the Giants' two Super Bowl victories, to Philly's zero.
