Next spring, Giants Stadium will be torn down and turned into a parking lot. Our esteemed colleague, Peter Mucha, talked to the FBI and asked whether they might be willing to dig through the rubble to find Jimmy Hoffa. The G Men (the ones with guns, that is) gave Mucha a solid, definite . . . maybe.

"Never say never, but it is a remote possibility he is buried there," said Special Agent Hal Helterhoff.

Should the Feds look for Hoffa before tearing down Giants Stadium? And I think the tradition/speculation should continue at the new stadium. Who or what can we bury there?

I've always thought that whoever grabbed Hoffa in suburban Detroit in 1975 wouldn't go to the trouble of transporting him across the country. Seems like kind of a risk to me.

I think it would be nice if we found the ball that Joe Pisarcik fumbled and bury that to bring the Eagles some residual luck over the coming seasons.

From: Gonzalez, JohnMucha just e-mailed me with an idea:

"Jersey owns Giants Stadium, right? Remember Geraldo Rivera opening Al Capone's vault on live TV? No? That's because it was a dud. Anyway, the NFL/Jersey could auction the Jimmy Hoffa Hunt rights to TV! Raise millions so my state income tax won't go up."

What's Geraldo doing these days? Think he's available?

From: Ford, BobYeah, I'd be watching that.

From: Fox, AshleyIt's no telling what all is buried under that old stadium. I wouldn't necessarily watch a Geraldo Rivera event - he creeps me out - but James Gandolfini would work, with Bill Parcells as an assistant.

That could be fun. One of the first things they'd find would be the 2008 Giants' egos, which the Eagles buried in January.
