The Mara Family: NFL Royalty

Somebody is not taking the Giants season so well. The son of Wellington Mara tackled and choked a 57-year old broker on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange after the man mocked the team. Stephen Mara then turned on the crazy, like Ralphie in A Christmas Story, reigning down the profanities .

"Mara started screaming, 'I'm gonna f- - -ing kill you! Don't f- - - around with my family! Don't insult my family!' " one broker said.

"[The victim] was like, 'Hey, what is your problem? It's just a game!' And Mara yells, 'No, it's not just a game, it's my f- - -ing family!' "

Right, that's why daddy didn't pick you to run the team when he kicked the bucket. The victim apparently walked past Mara during the morning and mockingly did one of those lame jump-shot things, maybe famous by Michael Strahan, and joked, "Maybe you have a basketball team instead of a football team."

That enough caused Mara to snap. (His old man would be so proud.) Just think of what would have happened if the victim had pointed out that all three players the Chargers received from the Giants in the Eli Messiah trade (Philip Rivers, Shawne Merriman and Nate Kaeding) all made the Pro Bowl. Too bad the rest of the Giants don't show this kind of fight. It was the best sack for the Giants all season.

Hey, what are the odds that this shows up on ESPN's "Jacked Up" segment?

Thanks to AOL FanHouse for the story.

Sounds like Anonymous on the last article and Stephen Mara are one and the same. Do you think he posted as Anonymous because of the court case that will definately be pending? Or is he just a set of quivering lips?

But at least Mara can cling to Sehorn's fine work as an NFL analyst for Fox Sports to uphold NYG pride.

I'm shallow enough to give a looker like Sehorn a chance, but man, he sucks

Why do you think Strahan is smiling in that picture?
