Because It’s Almost Halloween, Here’s A Closeup Of Jason Pierre-Paul’s Mangled Fingers
It's worse than you think.
Of course you may have been thinking, "I hope no one ever shows me a closeup of the hand that Giants' lineman Jason Pierre-Paul almost blew off with fireworks last Fourth of July." In that case, you are excused from this post. We didn't show it on the main page or on social media, so look below at your own risk.
The New York Daily News has no such empathy toward you and your sensibilities -- they've got the photo right out there on the front of their sports section. I'm surprised it wasn't on their cover.
Paul's hand makes him look like he should be lurking beneath an opera house, but who am I to judge? After all the crap my friends and I pulled as kids during Halloween, there's no way we should still have 10 fingers between us. But somehow they're all still there.
However we never showed up with a U-Haul filled with fireworks, like Pierre-Paul did. Anyway ...

Jesus. Pierre-Paul is back with the team after missing seven games, and has had two practices so far. New York Giants coach Steve Spagnuolo said via NJ.com that "It's hard to tell anything right now. We want to be optimistic, and I know he is, too, but I think we want to be smart about it. We'll just see where it goes."
The Giants' best bet if/when Pierre-Paul gets back is to forbid him to wear a glove and get that hand up in as many facemasks as possible. Is that in bad taste? This is the NFL, where the Washington Redskins are still a thing, Greg Hardy is still employed and Roger Goodell has filed an appeal over the PSI of footballs. So, spare us your grief.
