6-Year-Old Giants Fan Sends $3.36 To Brandon Jacobs To Keep Him In New York

New, 1 comment

A six-year-old New York Giants fan may have scored himself a free visit from now-San Francisco 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs. Joe Armento asked his mother why Jacobs couldn't stay in New York. When she told him it was because of money, Armento nobly emptied his piggy bank and sent Jacobs $3.36 enclosed with a letter to entice him back to the Giants.

Jacobs was apparently pretty moved by the gesture:

"I want to do good and go out there and do the best I can for little Joe," Jacobs said. "After thinking about it since it happened, I'm going to remember this for the rest of my life. When I go back to Jersey, we are going to have some fun together."

And here's Armento's letter:

"Dear Brandon Jacobs,

"So you could go to the Giants, here is my money.

"Love, Joe"
