Fan of the Week

Connie Giacomini, the mother of 280-pound U of L offensive tackle Breno Giacomini, is this week’s Fan of the Week. She and a large and rowdy group of family members and friends made the short trip from Malden, Massachusetts to Hartford for the game. They created quite a bit of noise and the ESPN cameras revisited them numerous times. Breno appeared to have a couple of football playing brothers who are as big, if not bigger, than he is.
