Adam Nardelli | Contributor

Raisedadam nardelli in central New Jersey, Adam’s attend Rutgers University in New Brunswick. Destined to be raised a Giants fan, he was born on the same day as a Giants vs. Jets game, and has been watching Big Blue ever since his dad stuck him in front of the television as an infant. 

Adam is a huge NFL fan in general and loves to watch as many games as he can, his passion for football wouldn’t be possible without his deep loyalty to the Giants. Adam can now be found at Sirus XM Radio and is a Fantasy Football guru. 

At 6 years he would sit and read through the whole Giants yearbook, learning about the players while being enamored by pictures of my favorite Giants such as Jesse Armstead, Michael Strahan, and Amani Toomer.

Shane Sharkey is one of a kind.  Having grown up in Durango Colorado, Shane has a love hate relationship with the Giants, especially since he was born on January 25 1987, the day Simms out dueled Elway to win Super Bowl 21.

Shane is now a New York City fixture and loves the New York Giants like a long lost roommate.  Shane visits a new bar every weekend watching the Giants in every corner of Manhattan and supposedly he has Jason Sehorn on speed dial at all times.

Shane will drop in his opinion with an unedited version of Rant and Rave reborn!


Michael Stewart | Featured Columnist

Michael StewartMichael is somewhat of a mystery writer for the NY Giants Rush. He come and goes, yet he always produces great insight into the Giants and their locker room.  His research is second to none!

He has been one of the most consistent writers on the staff. Michael makes his career as a golf pro in North Carolina yet was raised in the NYC area and still bleeds blue!
