They were drunk with pride.
Big Blue fans at a Westchester tavern almost swallowed their martini olives Friday night when New York Giants executive Pat Hanlon called the Irish pub to say he’d be there soon with a special guest: the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
Two hours later, he walked into JP Doyle’s in Sleepy Hollow carrying the NFL’s Super Bowl prize as 200 patrons — gathered through lightning-fast word of mouth — roared their approval.
It was the first stop in a whirlwind, weekend-long tour of the ’burbs that Hanlon, a Doyle’s regular and the Giants’ senior vice president of communications, arranged with team owners Steven Tisch and John Mara.
He’ll hoist the trophy at a handful of bars, restaurants and community centers in the area in an effort to share the glory with fans.
