The New York Giants Are Giving Away...Free Sodas?

"Coke syrup is mixed 5 parts of water to 1-part syrup. That 5-gallon box yields 30 total gallons of product which costs $0.0192 per ounce (national account) or $0.0212 at Sam’s.

There it is, New York Giants' faithful. Your hundreds, thousands of dollars that you've poured into this team, between tickets, merchandise and concessions, are worth $0.29 to the New York Giants.

For all of the pain, the misery, the utter dysfunction up and down the franchise, we're all finally being rewarded.

With one (1) cup of soda pop. Happy holidays!
