Literally. While the New York Giants were on the other side of the country laying a smack down on the San Francisco 49ers in the beat down heard 'round the NFC, a pair of hooligans were rummaging through the Giants players' cars…parked all the way back in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
Our favorite line from the Profootballtalk.com story that brought this to our attention:
Police say they’re searching for multiple suspects who broke a lock on the gate to the parking lot where players park their cars during road trips, burglarized some players’ cars and stole a 1996 Chevy Caprice. (Which I’m guessing was not a car belonging to an NFL player.)
Hey, we mock athletes for blowing their fortunes all the time, so if one of these guys was frugal enough to drive a '96 Caprice, good for him. Backup offensive lineman James Brewer posted on Twitter that one of the cars was his.
"Only in Jersey can someone be heartless enough to break into my car while we are in Cali making fans proud..geez get your life right in 2012," Brewer tweeted.
Part of us wonders why the Giants contract a lot in East Rutherford and don't just have their players park at the stadium. And the rest of us is ready to get back to football. Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins are up next.
