Giants have a ShamWow-style approach for today’s conditions


Inclement weather in San Francisco has raised concerns about the extent to which rain could impact the NFC title game.

The Giants prepared by practicing with wet balls. (Um. Yeah.) They’ll also have a secret weapon tucked inside their hand warmers.

Rachel Nichols of ESPN reports that a ShamWow-style shammy cloth will be inserted into the devices worn by the receivers and quarterback Eli Manning.

Hopefully that will be the extent of their homage to Vince Shlomi, and that Giants players won’t unwind after the game with any slap-chopping or hooker-punching.
