SAR I (SAR I)

 

Live in Bergen County NJ (clean air, racial inequality)

Also own a beach house on the water in Maine (state that's so north its practically south of Canada)

Grew up in Huntington New York which is on Long Island (stretch of land east of Queens)

Have been a Jets fan since 1979 and have never missed a game on TV or live, ever

Was on the season ticket holder waiting list from 1988 to 2003 which sucked

Was impatient, so purchased the rights to great seats in Giants Stadium from a blue-collar worker on eBay for $10,000 in 2000

Wanted Day 1 PSL seniority so gave $4,000 to an old-timer to select my Row 1 Mezzanine A seats in MetLife Stadium

Four kids, one wife, and a full-time nanny but she's not hot and that bums me out

Three sons all Jets fans, they think we're an elite team because we sort of were since 1997

I drive a $50,000 BMW but that doesn't make me special because I can afford a $150,000 one if I wanted

Lil Bit Special- Jason

Living in Waltham Massachusetts

Originally from East Northport NY

Attended UMass Amherst

 

Season Ticket holder from 1992-2009 sitting on 50yd line... until they built that horrible spaceship

 

Attended the Fake Spike game, took bus from Port Authority back to UMass when my bus slid off an exit ramp in heavy snow. Made it back to campus at midnight, where no one was around and I trudged through a foot of snow wearing my huge puffy green Jets jacket.  It may have been the only time in life where I felt I wouldnt be mad if I died right there.

 

Been to 2 games since then... once thanks to Max and once thanks to a friend.  Hated the new place and have little desire to go back.

Married in 2011 and had our first daughter Melinda this past May.  Currently enjoying being a stay at home dad for a few months before going back to work for Party City

 

Became friends with Gainzo due to our love of college hockey- he a UMass Lowell fan. Me UMass Amherst.  Been to many games with that crazy f@ck and enjoyed as his team rose from being cut to the top of Hockey East and a bright future while my sh!tty UMass team continues to suck year after year.

 

My user name is from a Stephen Lynch song called Special Ed. off his album A Little Bit Special.  

 

Huge fan of the Mets and Islanders, while enjoying Red Sox and Bruins games.

 

Love going to Cape Cod every summer to watch as many Cape League baseball games as we can.

 

Wife is a huge sports fan, but is a Patriots fan which makes things not so fun around here on sundays.

 

Currently 21st in post count, but most of those were smilies and stupid pictures.  Im barely around these parts anymore since I just dont love the Jets as much as I did when I drove 4+ hours each way on Sundays from Mass to the meadowlands.  If I miss a game...  oh well.  It aint the end of the world anymore.

 

Thats all folks!

Sorry, who are you again? Aren't you a SAR I alt account?

Anyway...

I'm Warfish.

I like Scotch, Pink Floyd, Fishing, Military History and of course, the Jets.

I'm longwinded, bloviating, arrogant, self-important and occasionally, rarely, funny and/or interesting.

I'm really just a longstanding Smizzy alt. account myself. Or was it Bitonti. I can never remember.

And I'm not new.

So, yeah.

- Live in Patchogue, which is about 20-30 minutes from the Hamptons on LI.

- Grew up in Islip, NY

- I became a Jets fan when I was 6 years old just to spite my a$$hole brother, who is HUGE Giants fan (I showed him).

- I've never been a season ticket holder. Most of my friends are Giants fans, so no one would accompany me to games.

- My wife and I had a daughter last December.

- We took her to Cortland to check out training camp a few weeks ago.  She was decked out in Jets gear, and

  took a picture with Tommy Bohanon. Geno also signed her onesie.  I'm sure she's going to resent me for

  making her a Jets fan when she gets older.

- I am a home brewer, beer geek, and metal music lover.

- I drive a Jeep Wrangler. Because it's cool.

The flags mark the tailgate spot.  We usually get a decent size crowd each game.

The JN ole timers can chime in also if they want..

 

I will start:

 

SouthernJet (Rich)

 

Live in Raleigh NC after moving from Poughkeepsie, NY in 1983

Grew up in Waldwick NJ

Have been Jets fan since 1964 when I was 11 and my dad started buying tix to Shea

Was a Shea seas tix holder, and I moved to NJ the year they moved to Meadowlands

Three kids, 5 grandkids

Two sons now Jets fans and curse me every day for it

This is my 41st year working at IBM in Software Group

I Love Movies, science, space, Star Trek etc

I invented ThugTurd

 

Great idea SJ.

 

Live in Stockholm, Sweden since birth. Hope to move some day to the U.S. but lack the specialist skill in order to get a job there thus far.. :)

Jets fan since 98 (I think) which ain´t bad considering the lousy coverage over here back then. A football fan since end of the 80´s though.

Went to my first, but not last, game last year and loved it to bits. Pats home.

Have a fiancee, no kids of my own but big family anyway. Enjoy life and try to travel as much as possible until we get kids.

Work for a global company as a SCM and will probably continue with that until I reach specialist level and can apply for a job in, yes you know it, the U.S.

I love all good things in life AND the Jets.

I haven´t invented sh*t...

I grew up in between. :)

 

I used to work in Patchogue, right on main street. I think the pizza place I used to hit up was called something like Del Fiore's. I loved the Brick House. 

 

When I was in college, a girl from school and I snuck into the old burned out mill building to take photos. There were un-opened Christmas gifts from when it first burned, a game by Milton Bradley that was all hippie-ish about karma cards and stuff like that. Very cool experience. No, I didn't get a blowie, but it wasn't for lack of trying. We stumbled across what looked like a chop shop and had to haul ass out of there. Oh, I also almost feel through the floor, my left leg went all the way through... my nutsack saved me.
