MVP! MVP! Fare Thee Well, Old Friend

We at Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere's Luke would be remiss to let this day pass withough acknowledging the retirement of the New York Football Giants most consistent player of the last 7 years, Jeff Feagles. Referred to affectionately by real Giants fans (well, me and Diesal at least) as The Feag, he has been a staple in the Giants' special teams and, in all honesty, may be the best punter in the history of the game.

This guy is 44 years old, played in 352 consecutive games, and never missed a game in his 22 years in the league. He has a knack for pinning teams inside the 20 and he rarely let go a bad punt for the Giants. He was a great player and will be missed.

I honestly do not think they would have won the Superbowl in 2008 without Feagles. He was so key in keeping the Giants in games that year.

Also, he never shot himself.

I don't know how many times I laughingly said "Feagles is our best player" over the past few years, but each time I said it, it felt like less and less of a joke.
