This past Thursday a football game special for the ages was spotted at Empire City Station. With the New York Giants playing at the Washington Redskins Sir Neal of Neal's Lumber & Hardware treated his friends, family and valued customers to a night out they will talk about for years. Sir Neal keeping a close eye on his beloved Giants and noting their recent struggles thought it would benefit everyone if he could put together a cheering section to invade the hostile FedEx Field crowd and root his Giants on to a much needed victory. Any wonder why Eli Manning threw four Touchdown passes, ran in for another one and lead the Giants to a 45-14 win.
Football Specials are nothing new and could be found throughout the country transporting fans to both College and Professional games. Football Specials like the NL&H Special would be the exception rather than the rule.
