NYC HAS GONE GREEN

No one is talking baseball in NYC today as the Jets have taken over this town as they ready themselves  for the AFC Title game against the Colts.

Even though I’m a die hard NY Football Giants fan, I hope the Jets win today as I know too many Jets fans who have never seen thier team win a cahmpionship and that’s sad.

What I can do without and it is one of the biggest flaws that NYC has are the front running bandwagoners.Every local news cast is full of these assholes who all of a sudden discovered football and are Jets fans. They were Highlander fans in October and now Jets fans in January. Must be nice to pick and choose who and when to root for a team.

As much as I rant against the Mets here, I love this team more than an grown up should. In fact it scares me a bit how much I care about the NY Mets.  Sure I’d love to see them win championships and be the talk of the town like the Jets are now and the Bronx Bastards seem to always be but right now I’d settle for a team and organization that is respected and plays good hard fundamental baseball.  I don’t think that’s too much to ask for is it?

  1. Krane, like you I am a Giants’ fan, but will be rooting for the Jets to win today, while I could live with a Jets’ loss, the one thing I will not be able to take is a Vikings win…the thought of another two weeks with the people of the sports media, giving virtual oral sex to Brett Favre, makes my head hurt so much, I will be praying for my head to explode.

  2. Isn’t that George Sauer who got all the action when Don Maynard #13 was double covered? I watched Supe III in a room full of Colt’s fans. Boy, did I stick it to them. I’m ready for another Super Bowl win.

  3. It’s okay to root for the Jets because they are underdogs just at the Mets usually are. I remember ’69 and this is almost as exciting. Mark Sanchez is the Joe Namath of today.

  4. “As much as I rant against the Mets here, I love this team more than an grown up should. In fact it scares me a bit how much I care about the NY Mets.

    No, Steve the goal has got to be a 3rd World Championship. Nothing short of that will do for “my” Shake Shackers.

    And one more thing:

    I’m not buying into “good fundamental baseball” bullshit.

    There has to be a complete ideological change for both the team and it’s fans.

    Install a culture of excellence. Nothing short of a ticker tape is acceptable.

    The first installment is the dismissal of Omar and Jerry.

  6. I see Steve’s point, Michael. Our expectations are lower (hard for you to relate to as a Highlanger fan). If we could just have an organization that does not embarrass itself, that’s a win for now. Then we could build to wanting (expecting?) a WS.

  7. Jets crash & burn. Gotta go w/the Saints and my man ex-Jet MLB #51 J. Vilma.

  8. I am saddened that I will not get to spend a Sunday afternoon/evening, in two weeks watching my brother in law have one of his dreams come true…no not that one, the one about the Jets in the Super Bowl.
