Giants Parade 2012: Super Bowl Champs Hold MetLife Stadium Pep Rally

The New York Giants concluded their Super Bowl parade on Tuesday afternoon with a pep rally at MetLife Stadium attended by approximately 30,000 people.

Two days after finishing the NFL season with a thrilling 21-17 victory against the New England Patriots, Giants players and coaches entered the stadium to rousing applause. Victor Cruz, showered with chants of "Cruuuuzzzzz" upon strolling onto the field, received quite a reception, but Eli Manning probably heard the loudest cheers.

The crowd was treated to a highlight film shown on the Jumbotron, after which head coach Tom Coughlin and defensive end Justin Tuck addressed the crowd with speeches. Coughlin spoke about his team's resiliency, and Tuck made a comment that almost brought the house down.

"It's MetLife Stadium, but one thing you can be sure of is whose house it is," Tuck said.
