Master this and any guy worth his nachos will soon be fantasizing about you wearing nothing but his Giants jersey. Attached? Impress your man by throwing out a few of these doozies alongside the rest of the fools plastered around the plasma screen.  This, we assure you, will ensure your induction into the Girlfriend Hall of Fame.
