NEW YORK - Relatives of New York Giants Quarterback Tommy DeVito tailgated outside MetLife Stadium on Monday ahead of the team's Monday Night Football matchup against the Green Bay Packers.
DeVito's journey has been a real-life Cinderella story. The New Jersey native stepped in to lead the Giants to two straight wins after going undrafted and starting the season as the third-string quarterback.
To celebrate DeVito’s hard work paying off, family, friends and fans gathered for a New Jersey, Italian American-style tailgate with over 300 chicken cutlets being loaded into sandwiches by Tommy’s cousin Danny DeVito (yes, that is his real name), and even cookies from Calandra's – featuring DeVito's already-signature touchdown celebration of pursed fingers.
The entire event was organized by Tommy's proud parents, Alexandra and Tom DeVito.
