“Big Blue” was a “Big Hit” at Empire City Casino on Sunday, afternoon, September 24. A contingent of eight New York Giants Super Bowl champions led by football Hall of Fame linebacker Lawrence Taylor join fans for a meet and greet and viewing party in the casino’s Entertainment Lounge prior to the Giants vs. Eagles NFC match up. “L.T.” and teammates Jim Burt (nose tackle), Gary Reasons (linebacker), Stephen Baker (wide receiver), Keith Hamilton (defensive tackle), Eric Dorsey (defensive end), Bill Ard (guard), and Byron Hunt (linebacker) delighted the crowd. At half-time, fans heard from the members of the Super Bowl XXI and Super Bowl XXV squads talking about their favorite Giants moments.
Empire City continues to bring New York’s most popular athletes to the largest entertainment destination in the Northeast. Earlier this year greats such as fellow Giants champs Justin Tuck and Mark Bavaro, Yankees four-time World Series champion Tino Martinez, and the Mets ’86 World Series pitcher Bobby Ojeda were front and center with the fans at Empire City.
