New England v. New York: Where My Loyalties Lie

Yeah, I know.  I write about Boston.  It’s the setting for the Thieftaker novels and several short stories that are either in print, in production, or under consideration at one magazine or another.  And I do love Boston — great city.

But I am a New Yorker born and bred, and I have been rooting for the New York Giants since I was seven years old.  That’s . . . well, that’s a lot of years.  As a Giants fan, I have been through heartache and embarrassment and a few very satisfying seasons.  I don’t know what will happen in tonight’s game, and I’m not going to make any predictions.  (If I predict a Giants win, they’ll lose, and if I predict a Patriots win, this will be the one time when I’m right.  By making no prediction at all, I at least give the Giants a chance…)  But despite my affection for New England in general and Boston in particular, there is no doubt as to who I’ll be rooting for come kick-off time.

Go Giants!
