Jets v Colts

Posted by keithosaunders on January 8, 2011

It seems like just the other day that these teams met in the 2010 AFC championship game.  I was at my steady Sunday gig on Long Island, arriving early to be able to watch as much as I could at the bar before the gig began.  The Jets were pretty much dominated on that late afternoon in Indy and by the time  the second half rolled around the game was all but over.

This year the Jets started out on fire, but let’s face it, many of their wins have been lucky, and their schedule, which featured the Bears, Browns, Bengals,and Lions has been kind to them.  Yet they beat the Steelers.  Go figure.  When their D is on they are a tough out.

The truth is that their coach, Rex Ryan, is not a likable guy.  He is a blowhard who talks way too much trash, especially for a guy who has yet to win anything.  If it wasn’t for the fact that I am from New York I don’t think I would root for this bunch.  You have to be loyal to your homies so I will drink from the Jets coffee mug, and wear the green sweatshirt.

As fate would have it I am once again gigging on a Jets playoff night.  I will, however, be DVR-ing the second half of the game.  I am fairly confident of not having the score divulged mid-evening before I am able to return to the safety and sanctity of my own T.V.  Here in the Bay Area the playoffs are an afterthought.  The sports radio station is abuzz with the news of Jim Harbaugh agreeing to coach the 49ers.  For some reason, even though he has yet to coach one NFL game, he is viewed as a savior.  Bully for them.  I will be rooting for a team, that at least for the time being, is still alive.  JETS!
