Ann Mara, a Giant Fan

Superbowl_finalIn a follow-up to our piece last week about long time New York Giants owner Wellington Mara, The Palm Beach Post carried an article on Saturday about Wellington’s wife, Ann Mara, who now splits her time between Rye and Palm Beach (Wellington Mara passed away in 2005).

Instead she’ll be with all of her children and most of her 40 grandchildren in owners’ suites in Glendale, Ariz., to see her Giants try to upend the New England Patriots… "The Giants have been our whole lives, and I enjoy every single minute of it," Ann Mara said. "I travel on the team plane. The players congratulate me when we win."… Two weeks ago, she was at Lambeau Field to see the Giants upset the Packers. "Oh, boy, was it cold in Green Bay," she said. "My friend who used to own the Jets, Mrs. Hess, she lent me a fur to put over my lap for good luck, and it worked."

It must have been quite a celebration last night for Ann Mara and her family.
