Ball point pen on the morning newsprint

As a New Jersey Giants fan, I had reason to believe they could repeat as champions this year. They were 11-1 and were looking like the best team in football.

He was a New Jersey treasure. Jerry started writing for the Star Ledger while still a student of Rutgers University in 1951.
