If the New York Giants and #80 Victor Cruz don’t get their crap together and sign a contract for the 2013-2014 football season, I’m going to be so pissed.
I know this is why I have, ironically, a #80 Jeremy Shockey jersey sitting in my dresser along with a few other short season wonders and finally gave up and bought the franchise quarterback jersey but COME ON. In my son’s Kindergarten class picture? He’s wearing Cruz’s jersey. He made gingerbread houses in that jersey.
DON’T DO THIS TO US. Take the deal because I cannot explain over-estimation of skills, greed and the business of football to a 6-year-old and his broken heart.
PS. If you see my child before a deal is signed or the April 19th deadline has passed and mention the possibility of Victor Cruz not being a New York Giant, I will assume you hate my family and will do what I have to do, which will probably entail a story about how you have been possessed by a terrible jealous and angry monster and we should avoid you at all costs until the doctors can make you better.
