Max if there's ever been an opportunity for you to provide some actual entertainment to people in your lifetime, it's the chance to fix this contest so Shane wins, and then videotaping it.

Dear Mastercard, I am writing to answer the question you've so tantalizingly posed, "What would be 'priceless' about the chance to have breakfast with the Jets GM?" My answer, simply: "Bacon

Mike Tanenbaum: "Nice to meet you Tom. What brings you here?" Tom: (mumbles under breath) "Glorious revenge brings me here" Mike: "Huh?" Tom: "Uh, nothing. Enjoying your bacon?"

The way this game is going? I may just ask for my breakfast to go.

One of Rex's first moves was to put in a drive-through window so that should be fine.

i can bring my stuff and we can just all tailgate in the lot

"Hey Mike, it'd be really cool if we could meet some other people from the team....... No, we actually had a very specific list in mind. Let's just start off with Brian Schottenheimer, Mark Sanchez, and Eric Smith if you don't mind........ Why? Oh no reason, we just um, want to say hi. Yeah, that's it........ These baseball bats? Well um, we were just hoping to get them signed is all."

"Hey Schotty, can you sign my bat?.. Great, but can you sign it in blood?.." *thump*

I would just like to state that I am looking forward to the Mastercard event on Saturday. And that I know it isn't an interview with Tannenbaum but we are happy to watch his presentation and learn from it.

I think I worded that all right, lol. It should be a good time though.

Awesome, Phil! A big thanks to the Jets for giving us the chance to interview the great Mike Tannenbaum! Here are the questions I'm gonna ask!!

1. In retrospect, would you just go ahead and hang on to Chansi Stuckey?

2. Did Nnamdi at least leave a few bucks on the nightstand before he left?

3. Fill in the blank: "I deal with the humiliation of drafting Vernon Gholston by _______ violently while sobbing."

4. What algorithm does one use to measure levels of grit, and what "grit score" does a player need to offset a poor 40 time?

5. If Johnny has two apples and Billy has three apples, why does it cost Mikey multiple draft choices to make one first round pick?

Can you confirm the rumor that Bleedin Green tried to start a prayer circle to ask God for more positive press coverage of the Jets?

I can confirm that Bleedin and Sperm were both very quiet, they didn't ask Tanny any questions. JoeC and Rob asked Tanny several very good questions. That much I can indeed confirm.

Also there were no pancakes at the breakfast buffet. French toast, eggs, cereal, breakfast potatoes but no pancakes. In 2011 you would think such a thing would not be possible.

Any Bacon? Sausage? Biscuits and Gravy?

Me either, until I tried to sign up. Totally forgot. Couldn't have done too good of a job. Signed up when I was 16, haven't posted since I was 17 (I'm 21 now). And I have a -660 rating. People must have loved me.

Two things I liked about him:

1. He was really nice today

2. He never met you in real life

So he is okay in my book.

JetNation.com was invited to the Jets training facility in Florham Park this past Saturday, courtesy of Mastercard.  This was part of the PricelessNY campaign, giving fans experiences that are Priceless. The day included breakfast, an up close and personal meeting with NY Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum and a tour of the facility.

Breakfast – No complaints here, how can you go wrong with french toast, eggs and breakfast potatoes?  icon_smile.gif

Meeting with Mike Tannebaum – this was held in the Executive board room which overlooks the practice field.  A very impressive view and the event was limited to approximately 20 fans.  It had an up close and personal feeling to it.  Mike Tannenbaum started it off with a short talk, approximately 10 minutes long.  Then he took questions from the fans that were present.  Mike was very positive about the team, despite the two recent losses.  He was asked a lot about his background and told some good Bill Parcells stories that were interesting; his basic theme was to make it as an executive in the NFL you can’t be out worked.  There were some young kids present, I point that out because the questions were better than what Tannenbaum normally receives from the main stream media.

Tour of the Facility – I had taken a tour of the facility when it first opened when the Jets first announced PSLs.  What I walked away from the tour this time, is how proud they are of the facility.  As they should be since it is a state of the art building.  It was pointed out that the salary cap has leveled the playing field for players compensation but the practice facility and other amenities aren’t regulated under the cap.  So the thought process was these could be difference makers on the field.  As a fan all I will say is, I hope they are right.

It was an enjoyable experience and I recommend you check out the other PricelessNY offerings.  They have some that are for sale and provide an opportunity for pretty unique experiences.
