Mr_Jet Icon : (14 April 2014 - 02:30 AM) That's right, because I was on the edge of my seat wondering whether or not Garrett McIntyre would be resigned or not.
Mr_Jet Icon : (14 April 2014 - 02:39 AM) There is not really much to update us about in the dog days of the off-season. Unless we want Santana to be like CNN and give us constant "updates" about the missing Malaysian airplane.

azjetfan Icon : (14 April 2014 - 03:44 PM) 18. New York Jets -- Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State: Surprised? Yes, the Jets need a receiver, but it's the deepest receiver draft in years, and they can find a good one in the second round. This would mark the fifth straight year with a defensive pick in Round 1.
Chaos Icon : (14 April 2014 - 03:51 PM) is he better than Gilbert, Dennard, and Fuller?
Mr_Jet Icon : (14 April 2014 - 03:56 PM) In my biased opinion I don't think he's better than Dennard.

Chris Johnson’s visit with #Jets today went well, from what it sounded like. It’s over now. Nothing final yet, other teams still circling
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:25 PM) I think he's just stating the obvious but whatever it's an update

I've decided to not raise my son a Mets fan. I've been a fan of the Mets since the early 90s and I can honestly tell you that it has not been fun. The most joy I can remember having as a Mets fan was early this year following RA Dickey. To recap, in about two decades of following a team, the most joy I've ever had was rooting for an unconventional pitcher in an otherwise forgettable season. Yes, even in 2000 when we somehow scrapped and managed to get to the WS (with our entire outfield on DL), the joy was short lived as we were slammed headfirst into the tiled wall of the prison showers while the biggest nazi f*** around had his way with us. The worst part is, I don't see the Mets ever getting any better.

I'm aware of the dire consequences of my actions. Living in Brooklyn, there's a good chance my son will develop an affinity for the Yankees, because lets be honest, little kids are front runners. As much as I'd hate to have that shitty dark navy and white cumrag uniform in my house, it's better than rooting for the Mets. Unfortunately, it's too late for me so I'll fall on the blade of the dysfunctional bullshit I chose to follow. But not my boy. You're free. Enjoy your Augusts and Septembers.

PS He does have a Jets outfit already.

Kid is gonna follow you no matter what. What do you think is going to happen when you watch a Mets game? Valiant effort but I doubt it's going to stick.

Props on the Jets outfit. :trink39:

I became a Jets fan because of my dad. when I was younger I always saw him yelling and screaming at the TV so during 2nd grade i decided to go into his room and see finally what he screams at. I have been miserable ever since

As a die hard Mets fan, I only watch games up to the All Star break. After that, there's no point.

I don't know. I have been trying to get my son to be a Jets fan since birth. He has Jets pillows, Jerseys, Footballs etc... And he is still leaning to the Packers. Living in WI and having a packer fan wife and inlaws I seem to be loosing the battle. Good Luck

I think Packers and Wisconsin is that rare combination of sport nuttiness that will not be beat by anything. My ex-gfs family moved to Waukasha, WI when we were still together. None of her siblings were little (the youngest was like 10). They were BX Puerto Ricans full of NY pride. Jets and Yankees all day. Now? All I see is Packer and Badgers posts on their FBs. When we went out there, Packers is the only thing moving. I think Rodgers can *beep* in a napkin and a 20 man brawl would break out for who gets to eat it. It's a completely devoted fanbase the likes of which I've never seen. Maybe die-hard Celtic fans somewhere in meth-lab little towns in NE are like that, but the cheese heads love their Packers... no cool Jets slippers will ever sway them.

What you are all describing is Programing by the merchants of the World to have you and your succeeding genrations to buy all their Merchandise . you are what it is put in your Brain and the body follows what the brain thinks .
teach your Son right from wrong and he will go much further with good character no matter which logo he wears.
