New York Giants fans have made the trek to Arizona to watch their team fight for the Super Bowl.Eyewitness News reporter Nina Pineda caught up with some of them. She has the story.

They come from near and from far, and they all have their own special story or reason why they had to be at the Super Bowl.

As we kick off the weekend, it is clear that Giants fans are coming to the Valley to roost.

Five hours in the sky, and here they come. The faithful have descended on Arizona, ready to show Phoenix who wants it more.

One group of fathers and sons from the south shore of Long Island arrived Friday. They got their gear on, and got ready to get their game on in Giant style.

"We're going to have a great weekend," one father said. "We're going to have a lot of fun here. Go Giants!"

"It goes way back to the 80s," another said, of his love for the Giants. "It goes back to the 80s, when they won the Super Bowl."

From the east coast to the west coast and in Arizona, blue rules. And the buzz is just beginning.

"Giants are taking it home this season!" one young Giants fan exclaimed.

"Eli's better than Brady!" his friend chimed in.

It's on! Now, there's a game to be played.
