Here's an article I wrote for Odyssey Couleur Travel Magazine about my wife Maribel and I having a couples getaway in sunny Orlando. I thought some of my fans might enjoy seeing a different side of me, as well as reading about some nice, warm weather during this brutally cold January. You can find the article in the winter edition of the magazine, if you're interested in picking it up.

Harry Carson has been named "Wellcare Ambassador" by the New York Chiropractic Council for their "WellCare Revolution" outreach and promotion.
Carson has been a supporter of chiropractic since his playing days with the Giants. In fact, when a back injury continued to bother Carson during the 1983 season, the Giants team physician immediately recommended him to a chiropractor and Carson has been incorporating chiropractic into his life. “I have lived it. It’s no secret chiropractic helped me immensely during my 13 consecutive seasons with the Giants, and it continues to play an integral part in my daily life,” said Carson. “I am proud to be involved with chiropractic, and I’m looking forward to performing my duties as the Council’s WellCare ambassador.”
I am saddened with a tremendous sense of loss with the passing of my old teammate Brad VanPelt. Brad was a great player when we played together for the New York Giants. I was honored to join him and Brian Kelly as the linebackers in mid 1976. We played well together as a group and with their support I was able to learn and somewhat master the position I was asked to play by the Giants coaches. We knew we were a good trio playing for the Giants defense in the late 1970s but we rose to a much higher level with addition of Lawrence Taylor. We became known as the “Crunch Bunch” a quartet of the best linebackers in the National Football League of the early 80s. With his tall frame, boyishly good looks, blond hair and wearing his #10 jersey Brad played with great pride representing the New York Football Giants. Most people will live with those memories when they hear the name Brad VanPelt.
On Friday, November 17, 2006, the New York Giants Greatest Linebackers (The Giants "Heavy Hitters" consisting of Brian Kelly, Carl Banks, Brad VanPelt and Hall of Famers Sam Huff, Lawrence Taylor and Harry Carson) paid a visit to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. The Giant Linebackers took time as a group to visit many of the wounded soldiers who were injured in Iraq. Most of the wounded soldiers were leg and arm amputees as a result of IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices) or a result of gunfire. All of the soldiers, families of wounded soldiers, and the staff of Walter Reed were very appreciative of our visit to support the wounded and thank them for their service and sacrifice.
I wanted to take some time to share with my NFL brethren my personal observations of the state of the retired player community and some of the issues that affect it. I respectfully ask that you read the following very carefully.
Like many others I’ve followed the groundswell of the vocal displeasure of former NFL Retirees for a number of years. As a sometimes member of the New York media I’ve had many opportunities to take part in interviews by various sources (like Sports Illustrated and ESPN) to discuss the issues of NFL disabilities to the public. I strongly feel that the Internet has been the best friend for retired players because it has given former players a way to connect and share their stories with one another. Through my interactions with many of my old teammates and guys I’ve played against as well as reading various emails from you all I felt a connection to join the fight to do whatever I could to help my brothers.
HALL of Famer Harry Carson, Captain of the Super Bowl champion 1986 Giants, believes the Patriots' march towards history and a place alongside forever immortal teams can come to a screeching halt Saturday night inside Giants Stadium - if Tom Coughlin plays to win the game.
"I think the Patriots are a beatable team," Carson told The Post yesterday. "I think the Giants can distinguish themselves by beating the Patriots at home Saturday night. You go into the postseason on a high note. If you've beaten the Patriots, you can beat anybody."
To all of my family, good friends and wonderful Giant, Pro Football or Harry Carson fans all around the world I offer my sincerest gratitude for your support and very warm well wishes over the past few months in regard to my son's health and my election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
It has been a very a very challenging 7 or so months since my son Donald has been diagnosed with the rare blood disorder Aplastic Anemia. After graduating from college on December 10th he was diagnosed with the condition 5 days later. Donald was originally treated at his hospital Candler-St. Joseph Hospital in Savannah, Ga. He was then recommended by his primary-care physician to be treated by doctors more familiar with Aplastic Anemia at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md. for further treatment.
The "Crunch Bunch" (Brian Kelley, Brad VanPelt, Lawrence Taylor and Harry Carson) participated in Jimmy Carter's Work Project 2004 for Habitat for Humanity in Puebla, Mexico with former President Jimmy Carter during the week of October 24th, 2004.
The the Giants Superbowl greats teamed up with the former President and his wife Rosalynn together with thousands of other people from around the world, volunteering their time, energy and effort to build houses for families in need of decent shelter. The goal of this project is to build 150 houses in five days.
Video updates following the progress of the project are available on the JCWP area of Habitat.Org and Harry's own photo journal can be found here.
