Super Bowl XLVI Champ Henry Hynoski Signing

Photobucket

This afternoon New York Giants fullback Henry Hynoski was signing autographs at the Susquehanna Valley Mall.  The event was sponsored by the Susquehanna Valley Mall and ESPN 92.3FM.  Hynoski played for Southern Columbia High School, then went on to play for the University of Pittsburgh.  He recently won Super Bowl XLVI with the Giants.  Everyone could get (3) items signed free of charge.  The place was totally packed.  The line started outside of Bon-Ton and by the time I left the line was all the way back to Sears.  That’s a long line.  Luckily I got there early enough and didn’t have to wait too long.  They were also handing out miniature ESPN footballs and Pepsi products.  Hynoski was signing right outside of Schuylkill Valley Sports.  They were selling tons of Giants items you could get signed.  How convenient? 🙂

Henry Hynoski is one of those rookies from last year that doesn’t have a ton of cards.  As of right now, you can only find his cards in Plates & Patches and Playoff Contenders.  His Plates & Patches cards seem to be a lot more popular than the Playoff Contenders.

During Super Bowl XLVI Hynoski caught 2 passes for 19 yards, and recovered an Hakeem Nicks fumble in the third quarter.

I Had No Idea

I had no idea that everyday when I go to school I am driving past the resting place of a Baseball Hall of Famer.  Not just any HOF player either, but Christy Mathewson.  I knew that Mathewson went to college at Bucknell University, but I didn’t know he was buried at the Lewisburg Cemetery which is very close to the school.  There are a few other baseball players buried there too: Walter Allen “Heavy” Blair, and Harry Elwood “Moose” McCormick.
