And as far as the Jets go--well after today, you won't have to see anymore terrible towels waving on Heinz field as Brett Michaels did.
Steeler fans have already had their moment!
Look what Serby of the NY Post had to say:
"Every man wants to have a beer with Rex. Every woman wants him to be her podiatrist. Every Man wants access to the Sanchise's address book. Every woman wants to be in it."
Heck--look at the sacrilege that was in the Boston Globe!
I’m in. I’m on the Jets bandwagon. I’ve been carrying Fireman Ed on my shoulders all over Pittsburgh, and let me tell you, he’s heavier than he looks.
The Jets are fun. The Jets have a coach who says what he thinks without regard for the consequences. The Jets lack self-importance. They do backflips in the end zone.
Oh, and the Jets have fans who have suffered for years, just like
Red Sox fans up until 2004.
If you are a
Patriots fan still smarting from the shocker last Sunday, you should be rooting for the Jets tonight. The better the Jets do, the more the Patriots will be driven to beat them. If the Jets win the AFC Championship at Heinz Field, perhaps the Krafts will be inspired to spend a little more money on payroll next year (are we supposed to feel good that the Patriots have the third-lowest payroll in the NFL?).
Last night, I played blackjack with a bunch of Jet fans, who made like Jets every time they hit, and chanted J-E-T-S on blackjack!
It reminded me of the anticipation I had, back in the day, when I was a suffering Packer fan, until Favre and Reggie White helped turn the franchise around!
Now its the J-E-T-S turn today!!
