Looks like the Giants are celebrating their Super Bowl win with style. Defensive end Justin Tuck bought 80 bottles of Johnnie Walker Blue to gift to his teammates, coaches, and staff.

Each bottle is reportedly engraved with "Super Bowl XLVI champions," worth $220 each. "I wanted to give the guys on the team, the coaches, and everyone who got us to Indianapolis a personal gift to thank them for everything that they've done," Tuck said.

And why Johnnie Walker? "Johnnie Walker is kind of a working man's drink. Johnnie Walker and some Coke. It just speaks to the attitude of our team and the type of guy he is," Dave Tollefson, another defensive end for the Giants, said.
