Throwback Thursday: Blowing off Mike McCarthy with key calls?


What a day for many New York Giants fans in the desert sunshine. The odd number of home teams on Halloween allows for plenty of Giants fans to dress up and boo their new foes, even though the Cheeseheads get most of the other celebrations, in the games between them.

The Chicago Bears did an elaborate walk through of their city with city workers dressed up in costumes, including Luke Bronko’s Birdman. The New Orleans Saints did a black and gold parade with dressing rooms filled with players in full gear, including then-retired quarterback Drew Brees. Peyton Manning also popped up as a taco-flipping cop. And when Minnesota did “Pick Six Fridays” before a game, the Skol Super Bowl-champions got to do their own at Green Bay, the team they beat, on the frozen tundra.

The Arizona Cardinals handed out thousands of free T-shirts and hoodies to fans, while Archie, Olivia and others, back in 1996, will appreciate the three quarters of YouTube they got thanks to an attorney whose attempts to subpoena the episode may be now under review.
