The Most Embarrassing Moment of My Jets Fandom and Finding Forgiveness for Reactionary Emotion

pennington-injured-patriots-jets

When talking about your history of being a fan of the Jets, many on the outside would joke there have been tons of embarrassing moments as a Jets fan.

That is not very realistic, and playing in the media capital of the world, the few big negative moments have been blown out of proportion.

Of course, if you are looking for a really obvious moment, one in the recent past generally pops up if you speak about an embarrassing moment.

That of course, is the “Butt Fumble”, orchestrated by Mark Sanchez and Brandon Moore.  But really, that is a physical action of a really bad play.  Did it suck?

Live From the Meadowlands: It’s Monday Night!

I was in attendance for Jets-Texans yesterday and got to watch the almost-destruction, almost-miracle, almost-Sanchez-led-comeback, definite-killer-interception in person.  Here are a sprinkling of thoughts both on the live experience and on the game itself.

1. First Texans fans sighting

I have seen 3 Texans games so far and this one was the first where there were a noticeable amount of Texans fans there.  They were not nearly as overwhelming as the 49ers fans from the week before, but there were some nice pockets of fans around.  I guess finally fielding a playoff team and being a decade in has allowed this team to gain some out-of-state fans.
