(WSCR) When a six-year-old, die-hard Giants fan from New York named Joe learned that his favorite player Brandon Jacobs wouldn’t be returning to the Giants due to the team’s inability to afford him, he did the only thing he knew to do.
He sent Jacobs the money in his piggy bank – $3.36 to be exact.
See the letter Jacobs received from the boy’s mother below.
My 6-year-old son, Joseph, is a huge NY Giants fan. Last year, he had the opportunity to go to a game and he just fell in love with the team. He was very sad to learn that both you and Mario Manningham are no longer with the team. When he asked me why you were going to SF, I explained that the Giants did not have enough money to keep you. So, in an effort to convince you to return to NY, he wrote you the enclosed letter and included money for you from his piggy bank.
Joseph is just learning to read/write, so I will help by translating his letter:
“Dear Brandon Jacobs,
So you could go to the Giants, here is my money.
