It Isn't Easy Being Green
Its a part of who I am. I started rooting for the Jets when I was nine years old because I wanted to be different from all the Giant fans around here. Over the years I've lived with being second fiddle, with having to start a phone call campaign to keep them on TV on Sunday afternoons. I've lived with gut wrenching losses and lost seasons. Inside of all of that what was most important was hope. Like the Brooklyn Dodgers of the 1940s and '50s. Wait til next year. Its about hope and belief. Yeah, I know sports is a business and I know that players are over paid. But there is still a nine year old kid inside me that believes in those men in green. That they will win for me and, for once, I'll be on top of the NFL mountain.
