Top Ten Celebrity Fans of the New York Giants: A Fan’s View
Dozens of celebrities cheer on the New York Giants on NFL gamedays. Here's a look at the top ten celebrity fans of the team:
1) Spike Lee: Lee, an American filmmaker, is a bit of a mystery to me, as he has been spotted wearing both New York Jets and New York Giants gear over the past two seasons. While the rivalry between the teams isn't quite the same as the one between the New York Mets and New York Yankees, it's still odd to cheer on both squads.
2) Jordin Sparks: Sparks, a critically-acclaimed American pop singer, cheers on the Giants because her dad, Phillippi Sparks, was a standout cornerback for the team from 1992 until 1999.
3) Daniel Radcliffe: It's no secret that "Harry Potter" is a Giants fan, as he's often seen sporting Giants attire at events throughout the nation.
4) Jon Bon Jovi: Bon Jovi is one of the most well-known Giants' celebrity supporters, as he has been rocking Giants gear for years. Bon Jovi even got to play a concert in 2009 to open the new stadium.
5) Tracy Morgan: Tracy Morgan, star of the hilarious show "30 Rock," cracked jokes with fans and did standup comedy in the aisles of the New Meadowlands Stadium in 2012.
7) Ashton Kutcher: Kutcher soaked in a Giants game with his former wife Demi Moore last fall.
8) Brian Williams: According to a Gothamist report, "Guess who else is a not-so-secret Giants fan? Hipster aficionado Brian Williams, who is currently "wearing a Giants jersey under his sports coat in Indianapolis."
9) 50 Cent: In a strange wager, 50 Cent made a bet with a fan that he would post a nude photo of himself on Twitter if the Giants lost to the New England Patriots in the 2012 Super Bowl. Luckily, the Giants cruised to a victory and no one had to see if he was serious about the wager.
10) Jay-Z: Jay-Z is one of the many famous rappers who proclaims love for the Giants. Other celebrity rappers who are Giants fans include: 50 Cent, Nas and Busta Rhymes.
Who else deserves a spot on this list? Let me know in the comments.
