The Giants blew off some steam and did a bit of team building when Tom Coughlin led the entire team and staff in night of bowling at Frames in Manhattan on Tuesday night.
Coughlin described his game as “lousy at best” and said a good time was had by all:
“That was a surprise for them last night. We’ve done it in the past. We’ve done different things. We’ve taken years where we haven’t and we wanted to do it this year because we have so many new guys, so many young guys. We needed a little team building session and we thought that would be a good idea. It was a good idea.”
Press release from Frames.…..On Tuesday evening, Aug 13th, Frames Bowling Lounge hosted the entire NY Giants team for a night out during their intensive 3-week training camp.
The 4-time Superbowl champs had a night off and spent it hanging out at Frames Bowling Lounge, trading their usual competitive Superbowl antics for a night of super Bowling.
The Giants were ushered into the midtown bowling venue, located at 40th Street and 9th Avenue, quickly and discreetly, through a back door entrance as not to alarm the neighborhood or tip off any fans. The event was extremely hush-hush; they employed a full police escort and had plenty of security.
The entire 2013-2014 Season team were present, including Eli Manning, Victor Cruz, coaches Tom Coughlin, Pat Flaherty, Joe Danos and others. The guys were all really relaxed and enjoyed a great evening, shooting pool and throwing strikes, sans alcohol of course. Nothing but juice and water for this boys night out while training.
In good spirits, the players all had a laugh at Eli Manning’s expense when the Frames DJ premiered the latest Direct TV commercial, “Football on Your Phone” across all 26 lanes. The guys all erupted in a playful ribbing session with their beloved Quarterback, while Manning painfully watched the hilarious clip of him and his brother Peyton in 80s getups and wigs singing the football on your phone jingle.
The larger than life football stars were all sweet gentlemen, and courteous towards the staff and servers. They were mostly interested in knowing when they could return for a night of bowling with cocktails.
Yup, Frames does bottle service, Victor Cruz. Now that deserves an End Zone cha-cha.
