I went to the Jets-Dolphins game Monday night, where we lost with a minute remaining in the game.
The blurry guy is me. I’m pretty damn die hard.
Aside from the usual cast I go with (this time only my friend Sean) we brought a newcomer, who had never been to a game before. The loss was the perfect introduction into what it’s like to be a Jets fan. They make you dream, and then they crush those dreams in a barrage of blocked punts and butt fumbles.
I’ve said it before, but it deserves repeating: The Jets never disappoint because they find NEW AND INTERESTING WAYS TO LOSE!!
What it’s like to be a Jets Fan: Week by Week
Pre-season: “All right! This is our year. Our defense is strong, and Geno’s gonna develop into the QB we know he can be. J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!
Week 1: Did you see that? We destroyed the Raiders. They didn’t stand a chance. That touchdown at the end meant nothing. J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!
Week 2: What the hell? We totally got screwed out of that win! That was ours! It’s ok though, it’s only one loss. J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!
Week 3: Ok, that was pretty embarrassing, but if we didn’t spot the Bears those 14 points, we would’ve won. Once we stop making stupid mistakes, we’ll start winning. J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!
Week 4: We want Vick!
Week 5: WE WANT VICK!
Weeks 6-9: FIRE RYAN! FIRE IDZIK! FIRE EVERYBODY!
Week 10: See? We should’ve put in Vick earlier. Vick’s gonna lead us to the Super Bowl next year! J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!
Week 11: bye
Week 12: *weeps into slice of pizza*
Week 13: You know what? That’s ok. The Dolphins helped us. We’re gonna get a great draft pick next year, and that’ll be our year! J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!
Believing in the Jets is like Charlie Brown believing that Lucy is gonna let him kick that football. It’s never gonna happen, but that doesn’t stop you from trying.
I freakin’ love the Jets.
