    Why I am rooting for the JETS....Sad Story

    I am not a Jets fan but I would like to share a sad story. A friend of mine that I worked with for many years is a die hard Jets fan. Had season tickets for many years and never missed a game. Anyway, last weekend the Jets played and defeated the Patriots. My friend was so excited about the win over such a great team that he went outside and decided to ride a sled down his driveway in Staten Island NY. The sled went right into the rode in to oncoming traffic. My friend was ran over a killed. It was horrible! So in memory of my dear friend who passed away in his Sanchez jersey, I will be cheering on the Jets this weekend and hopefully for the bowl. Anyone from the NJ or NY area might have seen or heard of this on the news or paper.

    R.I.P. my friend!! You will be missed by many!!

    Mark this story is going to make a Pats fan root for the Jets. Sorry about your friend, I will say Jets fans have some passion and I had to replace a broken glass panel after the pats game. Always enjoyed reading your posts in the past when r u coming back to the island, balashi sales are down.
