STAMFORD - Giants fans are revelling in their team's Super Bowl victory today, especially a Stamford nun with close ties to Big Blue. Sister Carol Ann Nawracaj, principal at the Villa Maria School, says team officials named her an honorary coach in 1981. She says she met former Giants coach Ray Perkins in the 1970s, and that she has received game tickets and invitations to practices throughout the years. Nawracaj was in Indianapolis for yesterday's game and says she covers her own travel expenses.
