LINVAL JOSEPH

Giants Defensive Lineman

Ever really watch the Indy 500? Do you have a favorite driver?

"No, I don't care for racing at all."

If I went to your hometown, where do I have to eat?

U.S. Virgin Islands — "I'd send you downtown for some curry chicken and curry goat." (Note: I'll pass on the goat.)

What's the ideal Super Bowl city?

"Anywhere I could play in one. This is great because we're here. Next year, it would be great to go because it's Giants Stadium."

What is your top athletic achievement outside of football?

"Freshman year in high school, I had a 15-point, 10-rebound game at Sante Fe High in Florida."

What was the toughest part of moving to the New York area?

"The speed of everything is so much faster here than in Florida."

Clam chowder, Manhattan red or New England white?

"White, because that's how I was raised."

MITCH PETRUS

Giants Offensive Lineman

Ever really watch the Indy 500? Do you have a favorite driver?

"I've never watched it. Danica!"

If I ever went to your hometown, where do I have to eat?

Carlisle, Ark. — "Invader's. Have the buffet, fried chicken, fried potatoes, gravy. It's the best food in the South."

What's the ideal Super Bowl city?

"Hell, Little Rock. Let's keep it close to home."

What is your top athletic achievement outside of football?

"I played hoop in high school. I had a ton of big games, and it's too tough to remember them all."

What was the toughest part of moving to the New York area?

"Culture shock. People, lots of traffic. My hometown is 2,500 people to go from that to millions of people is tough."

Clam chowder, Manhattan red or New England white?

"Neither, we don't get many clams in Arkansas."
