A friend of this blog, Ray Sadecki, suggested opening a Jets site. A good idea is a good idea, so let’s go Jets. A good idea is a good idea, so if you want to say something about the Jets, let’s go for it.
I’m thrilled the Jets are doing so well. They are kindred spirits with the team they once shared Shea Stadium with, and not just because of the housing link.
They also have a history of being disappointed.
I covered the Jets during the Joe Walton Era, and I’ll never forget on 3-18 Mark Gastineau being called for roughing Bernie Kosar. It kept the drive alive and the Browns eventually won in overtime. That was the year the Jets started out 10-1 and limped into the playoffs.
Well, they are rolling now. I hope you’ll add to the link, and if I get comments asking me about blogging the Jets-Colts game on Sunday I’ll do it.
I think we might see the Mets do some things this week. Nothing major, of course, but some fill in stuff, like adding a journeyman outfielder to replace Carlos Beltran. Hopefully, perhaps one good enough to keep Fernando Martinez in the minors to tune his game.
John Smoltz is out there and he’s been linked to the Mets.
Also, there could be the long-awaited arrival of Bengie Molina. Please try to contain yourself when that does happen.
These, and any other Mets or baseball topics are on the table for Loose Threads. So are the NFL Playoffs or anything on your minds. I’ll be checking in especially during the Jets game, so if you have any comments during the game, please post away.
I’m going to hang around the house to watch the playoff games, and later on the season premiere of “24.”
It’s really quiet this morning. There’s nothing new going on today with the Mets’ pursuit of pitching, so my attention is turning to the NFL playoffs. How about those Jets? At least for one more week, Rex Ryan is right.
I do like Mark Sanchez. Classy thing to see him chase down Marvin Lewis to shake his hand. You don’t see that too often.
If you want to post something about the NFL, go ahead. Have a thought on the Mets or something in MLB? Feel free.
Whatever you do, have a good day. I’ll be back later if there’s breaking news. And, I’ll have more baseball for you tomorrow morning.
Hi folks …. have shoveled myself out. Went to the post office with mail that needed to be postmarked by Dec. 31. Ran some errands. Ready for tonight to ring in the new year.
It’s slow now, so I’m posting another Loose Threads. Share what’s on your mind, be it your New Year’s resolutions … comment about the Jets game Sunday night … talk of the bowl games … give me a movie review … your plans for the weekend … and, of course, anything about baseball. My plans for the weekend include watching the Jets on Sunday and Ohio State tomorrow.
I’ll put up posts tomorrow and throughout the weekend, and after that, of course, every day.
Watching some football this afternoon until the game tonight. Giants losing and Eagles just picked off Manning and took it in again. I’m waiting to watch Favre back in Green Bay. I think the ratings will be high for that one.
Up 13-0, it’s too soon to say it will be a blowout. Giants score and we’ve got a game again.
The Green Bay-Minnesota game is the one with the most interest to me. There aren’t too many players as magnetic as Favre. Everybody knew last year, or had to at least suspect it, that the Jets were just a rest stop on the Turnpike for him.
Watch. Enjoy. If you want to comment on anything that would be great. Thanks.
