I’m watching the first NY Jets pre-season game and I’m so happy.
I love football. I have loved it as a sport since my son played Pee Wee league 30+ years ago. I love the strategy. I love the power. I love the grace.
As a single Mom I listened to everything my son’s coaches said. I studied his play book. I asked a million questions.
Now to be honest – my love for football really started with a crush on Joe Namath. Lordy Lordy that man was so sexy. I met him once. I had been sneaking into the bar he owned and finally one evening he was there. Much to my horror he asked me how old I was. I said I was 19. He laughed and asked me what year I was born. I was so star struck that I forgot and told the truth. I was 14, not 19. He gave me a lecture. Can you believe it. NY’s #1 playboy gave me a lecture about how dangerous it was to be bar hopping at my age.
Ahhhh Joe - I love ya …
This year I’m excited about our new QB Mark Sanchez. He’s only 22 but I just watched him lead a really good drive.
Plus he’s a cutie.
Welcome to NY kid. Try not to let us kill you.
I can’t do a post about football without mentioning how much I love defense. It’s so cathartic to stand in the stadium and scream “get him” – “stop him” – and of course “fucking kill him now, right now”
I think I was a defensive player in another life. I can so relate to this face.
And of course where would Jets be without a Flight Crew. Yep, the NY Jets cheer leading squad is called the Flight Crew.
Isn’t that adorable?
Well we’re down by 6 so I gotta go scream at the TV now.
Oh how I love football.
