Go Big Blue!

To the editor: The 2008 Super Bowl victory of the New York Giants is a tremendous accomplishment and arguably the greatest upset in Super Bowl history. We at the University at Albany are especially proud, because every year since 1996, the Giants seasons have begun here at the team's summer training camp. More than 32,500 fans from throughout the U.S. attended camp here last summer, including many supporters from New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Vermont and even Florida. We know this victory will likely mean the largest crowds ever at the Giants summer training camp this July and August, but we assure you we will be ready to greet all the fans eager to travel to Albany to see the defending World Champions as they begin their quest for another title. Fans enjoy watching the tough practice sessions and talking with the players, and the University loves the chance to host our visitors and show off the campus. That is why, win or lose, we thank the Giants every year for the excitement they provide us. It is just that much better when we see their hard work result in an historic victory. George M. Philip
Interim President
University at Albany, State University of New York
