Germans like to make a joke about why the Dutch hate them so much. “Every time we invade France, we have to go through them.” Ah a little Nazi humor. One would think the Jets would have a little humility considering that’s how the Patriots did them on Monday Night Football earlier this season. Last time it was 45-3. They beat the Colts last weekend thanks in part to bad decision making on Jim Caldwell’s part and they’re still talking shit.
Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie, taking the baton from Rex Ryan, who criticized Tom Brady’s post-touchdown “antics” earlier this week, ripped into the Patriots quarterback in a profanity-laced rant Tuesday, calling him an “asshole,” and claiming he hates him.
…Cromartie, in his first year with the Jets after four years with the Chargers, backed up Ryan Tuesday when he was asked by the Daily News if he’s ever seen Brady pointing after the Patriots score.
“We see that a lot. He does it a lot,” Cromartie said. “That’s the kind of guy he is. We really don’t give a damn, to tell you the truth.”
Okay, what kind of guy is Brady?
Well then. Expect a 56-3 win for the Patriots this time.
That’s what the Jets have to say to anyone who wants to name dishes after the team.
The team set their spokeswoman on Prime KO Japanese Steakhouse after they found out the kosher restaurant was serving dishes with names like “Green on Green Jets Salad” and “Jets Dragon Roll”.
Jets spokeswoman Jessica Ciccone called Prime KO Japanese Steakhouse at 217 W. 85th St. a few weeks ago to complain the gourmet Gang Green fare wasn’t authorized by the team.
“We were really shocked,” said restaurant spokesman Steven Traube. “I think she was just being spiteful.”
So far the restaurant is holding its ground. They added a “Jets latke” for Hanukkah. Can’t wait to see what they add for Kwanzaa. Something with a poached egg called Revis Island perhaps.
They might have better luck naming dishes after players. They could have a tasting menu and name all the dishes after Antonio Cromartie’s kids. Customers can get it at a reduced rate if they can name his kids faster than he could on Hard Knocks. Ordering the “Rex Ryan” could mean getting the whole menu. I’d suggest a dish named after Braylon Edwards but the wait staff would always drop it before it ever got to the table.
What is happening here? This photo was taken by NY Jets tight end Dustin Keller, apparently on the team plane back from Cleveland where the Jets just beat the Browns 26-20. Keller stuck it up on his Plixi account for us all to see and I am now forever grateful.
What is Sanchez doing here though? Is he doing his impersonation of De Niro or Brando? Is this just how Sanchez actually talks? It would really warm my heart a lil bit he did talk like this all the time and I have no idea why. Also, side note, why does he look so much like Adam Morrison here?
The most astounding thing about this picture, to me, is surprisingly not so much the raccoon hat that Sanchez is wearing, no, it is that the star quarterback of the New York Jets does not get to sit in first class. That is full on coach seating there. Sure he gets a whole row to himself, but c’mon Rex, hook the kid up.
I’d love to see the picture of first class with Rex Ryan and the whole coaching staff sipping on champagne and smoking Cuban cigars while lounging around in NY Jets logo’ed plush robes and slippers. That must be happening up there. It must.
Mark Sanchez, raccoon hat wearing, coach class sitting, man of the people.
Hard Knocks on HBO this season has been amazing from the start and this clip from the show is no different. It might even be one of the best endings to a pep talk ever in the history of endings to pep talks. Why? Well because of snacks of course. Who the fuck doesn’t want to eat a snack after getting pepped up? I know I do. Stick around til the end, its just randomness.
