Visited the old Jets Training Camp in Peekskill...

That's very cool, didn't know that existed.

Unfortunately, the Jets were the 1968 World Champions, I'm sure the Kansas City Chiefs appreciate the people of Peekskill giving them kudos though.

Thats a good point, wonder who made that sign?...I always thought of them as '68/'69 Champs but I wonder what would be correct?

See we win a Super Bowl and somebody finds something to bitch about.

It's the opposite.

Our crowning achievement should not be disrespected in such a manner.  We need the biplane guys to right this wrong, need a petition.

Good lord, who doesn't know that?  The point is that the Championship Game is played in January but the Season is what took place the months prior and that's what's immortalized.

You know this.  The Peekskill sign is wrong.  It should be corrected.  It's a SOJ moment, one that I wish I didn't know existed.

All the Jets need to do is pay a buck and a half to someone skilled and experienced in carpentry and design and get it done.

I'm sure the town of Peekskill would allow it.

If it were my franchise/business I would get that corrected today.
