POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Jonathan Lopez descended on Poughkeepsie along with 1,500 other fans, trying for an autograph, a photo, or just a glimpse of the G-Men.
"They're super friendly, get to post on my Facebook, get all the handshake pictures, stuff like that," said Lopez, who drove up from Ozone Park, Queens. "Everyone's jealous that I'm going to these things, you know, I'm spending a little bit of money, but it's a moment you can't ever replace."
More than a dozen Big Blue champions showed up like Ahmad Bradshaw, David Tyree, Chris Canty, and the crowd favorite, Justin Tuck.
"It's one thing watching them on TV and it's another thing coming out here, supporting your team," said Jonathan Norton, a lifelong fan from Long Island.
"New York has some of the best fans and the best people in the world," said Justin Tuck, star defensive end for the Giants. "Getting the opportunity to win two Super Bowls here, I mean they did a great job of receiving us and coming out to events like this."
With four Super Bowl victories, the Giants now hold the fourth highest number of titles in the NFL. But players and fans say, that's not enough.
"You remember how good that feeling is, and you want it again," said Giants offensive guard, Kevin Boothe. "Come two weeks when we start working out again, I think everyone is focused on getting the next Super Bowl."
"It's all about this year coming up now, first game Dallas, we're taking care of them, and we're on our way to another Super Bowl," said "The G-Monster," Ed Yannette.
Giants fans will have to wait another five months before the NFL season kicks off versus the Cowboys on September 5th.
