Dio Loved NY Giants

We’ve known for some time that Ronnie James Dio was a huge New York Yankees fan.  It is possibly the only reason his estate released the Ronnie James Dio commemorative baseball a few years ago.  But did you know Ronnie was such a huge fan of the New York football Giants? So much so that he would sit around writing songs as he was watching their games?  Dragons, rainbows, and Lawrence Taylor slaying, I mean sacking John Elway and Jim Kelly in the Superbowl.  Or Eli Manning climbing the mountain, to knock Tom Brady and his dastardly minions off the top.  Wendy Dio mentioned the singer’s fondness for the team during a recently released interview by Loudwire, where Graham Hartman asks Dio’s longtime manager if there is anything that would surprise people about the legendary singer.  Among the other topics she divulges is the late singer rescuing numerous shelter dogs, and cats, as well as his work with military veterans, and having a number of combat planes named after Dio song titles.
