    Another bizarre act for the Meadowlands circus. Once things go sour, the wine will be accompanied by plenty of whine.

    Cheers! Jets unveil commemorative cabernet

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP)—Cheers, Jets fans! You can toast your team in a new way this season.

    The team announced Wednesday it has started taking advance orders for its new, limited release commemorative wine, called Jets Uncorked. The 2008 cabernet sauvignon was created to help the team celebrate the opening of the New Meadowlands Stadium.

    “We didn’t want to simply slap our logo on a wine,” said Matt Higgins, the team’s executive vice president for business operations. “We wanted to make one from scratch.”

    Higgins said the Jets went to Napa Valley in California and scouted eight wineries before selecting veteran winemaker Marco DiGiulio and lifestyle marketing agency, Wine By Design.

    The wine was made solely for the Jets, and will be available for $27.99 on the team’s website. DiGiulio said about 8,000 cases were made, and several Manhattan restaurants, such as Nobu, will also carry it.

    I expect more whine than wine from the Jets this coming season.

    I imagine it's like Beaujolais Nouveau. Instead of improving as the season goes on, you drink this in early Summer, when the hype is at it's peak.

    It doesn't seem to be available yet. Let's start a fund to buy it ALL when it becomes available on line, and then drink it during a tailgate after the Pats beat them at their new Exit 16W stadium in September.

    Are any of the regulars here really rich?

    And they've got a former quarterback to come and help you drink it. Sweet!

    I do think think this is kind of cool. How many of us would like to have a couple of bottles of Patriots wine stashed away that commemorated the opening of Gillette? Of course Kraft would have sold bottles with corks instead of screw caps.

    Nah, I'd rather have a Patriots Granny Smith Apple Hard Cider.

    Along similar lines, Randy (Zip) Pierce, Pats 2001 FOTY, would brew up a batch of Bruschi Brew beer every pre-season. Good stuff.

    Bruschi could've earned a goldmine in beer endorsements but never went that route because of his own battles with alcohol.

    I'll share a bottle of that with any Jets fan. Yeah...
    Fatty Arbuckle style!

    (let's see who's schooled enough in pop culture to catch the obscene nature of that reference.)
