You know it’s bad when a strip joint doesn’t even offer solace.
The Giants are the talk of the town these days, but for no reasons good. At 0-5 and with their season looking more and more like a train wreck with each passing day, they are drawing the ire of their fans and are becoming the butt of certain jokes usually reserved for the Jets.
Now, as if things couldn’t possibly get worse, they are banned from the airwaves at a popular gentleman’s club in Manhattan.
Yes, it’s true. We swear.
Following Big Blue’s bad 36-21 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday, Rick’s Cabaret, a Midtown strip club, decided it would not show Giants games on its many high-definition and big screen TVs for the rest of the season, the NY Post reported.
“After five straight losses, the crowd turned and started booing the TVs. The girls had to work extra hard. We are the first club to ban the Giants,” club spokesperson Lonnie Hanover told the Post.
The Giants are one of four winless teams in the NFL and could easily be 0-6 by the end of Thursday night’s game in Chicago against the Bears (3-2), who are very talented but have lost two in a row.
The employees at Rick’s told the Post it’s hard out there when the Giants leave their clientele feeling blue.
“It has become too painful to watch the Giants lose week after week,” Rick’s Cabaret Girl “Monica” told the newspaper.
“Nobody throws a party better than Rick’s Cabaret. We are all about fun, and it’s no fun watching the Giants anymore,” added Rick’s Cabaret Girl “Lindsay.” “We love the Giants, but they get the crowd at our weekend football viewing parties all depressed.”
“Alexandra” said everything was fine Sunday, until the Giants allowed the Eagles to score 17 unanswered points to end the game.
“There’s like a hundred sexy, topless girls here and everyone was exceedingly happy until it became clear during the second half that Eli Manning and the Giants were going to lose again,” she told the Post.
Hanover, the club’s spokesman, said the establishment just feels the customer is always right.
“We are responding to our audience wishes. We support (the Giants) and we wish them well,” Hanover told the Post. “We will continue to show all other NFL teams and sporting contests on our TVs.”
