Imagine being a Giants' fan and being surrounded by Patriots' fans at work? It's a reality for one local manager.
Imagine being the only New York Giants' fan in your workplace during the week before the Super Bowl? For Clements' Market store manager David Perry, this has become reality. Perry, one of only a few Giants' fans at Clements' Market, has heard a few jokes and comments against his favorite team, but that hasn't stopped him from keeping his Giants' helmet in his office this week leading up to the big game.
