    50 Years ago today....


    upload_2019-1-12_0-12-33.jpeg

    Well, it’s the 50th anniversary of our good friends, the NY Jets appearing in and winning their 1 and only Super Bowl.

    There but for the grace of God go we.

    I think actually Joe has been sober since that happened as he said it was the Kolber incident that made him realize he was an alcoholic

    EDIT: looks like Joe was sober from 1987-2000 but after he got divorced fell off the wagon. It was after this he really understood he had a deeply rooted problem with alcohol.

    Congrats to JETEs on their big anniversary

    today marks the anniversary of the biggest triumph in JETEs history, their only championship, when Broadway Joe Namath beat Baltimore in Super Bowl III.

    Let us all give them the respect they are due for that.

    I was rooting for them to win that game and carried that respect for many years.

    That respect is long gone now and won't be coming back.

    I was shocked and disappointed that an NFL team could be upset like that. But then I remember my dad telling me, "That's what makes the game great" -- a prohibitive underdog rising to the occasion of being crowned champion.

    Didn't matter. You see, even then I disliked the putrid Jete. Since 1969 it's been 50 years on the downhill slide to terminal suckage.

    I hate the Jets and have for decades. But, every fan of the original AFL teams owes that Jets team an enormous amount of gratitude. Before that fateful game on 1/12/69, the NFL and the fans of their teams looked upon the AFL and its fans as s### stuck to the heels of their shoes. They laughed at us and ridiculed our teams. Well, on that day which I'll never forget we all gained instant respectability after years of being ridiculed. We all owe Joe and the Jets for that one and will forever.

    I personally have never failed to give the vile cesspit of stank and suckitude that is the Jete exactly the correct amount of respect they are due. And so as they celebrate the Golden (shower) Anniversary of the only significant (flukey) thing that collection of misfits has ever done (or ever will) let me once again toast our AFCE (inbred) cousins...

    That was a guy at his lowest moment - captured for millions to see live on TV

    Joe was a warrior. He deserves to be in the HOF. And he's a good guy. And in recent years, I've run into some old timer Jets fans who are likewise gracious, good people.

    I can NOT say the same about Giants fans.

    I don't know about the AFL days, except that they knocked us out of the playoffs once or twice.

    But the animosity and hatred on the field really picked up in the 70's - which, by the way, is when the Patriots established themselves as contenders in the modern pro football era.

    Immediately when the merger took effect, all that ridicule was redirected toward the Patriots.

    And remains there to this day.
    All, except, that is, the Patriots. Sure, Sullivan was cheap and Boston wasn't in the limelight.

    But, the key point is that while most players, coaches and fans around the country disparaged and hated us, those guys who came here and played with grace and character, especially in the 60's and 70's, really elevate the Patriots franchise above all the others in football. If Kraft ever noticed this, he would never continue the ugly makeover perpetrated in 1993 out of sheer ignorance, stupidity and incompetence.
