Ladies and Gentlemen....there is a football game on the telly tonight.  It won't be a good one, but it's a gosh-darned actual game between two NFL teams.  I might have to take a peek.

I will watch - because it is football.  But I would have been looking forward to it a little bit more if Roquan Smith had signed.  Although living in Chicago, it is kind of fun to be able to laugh at the Bears as the only team with an unsigned rookie.

Just under two months until the Jets open up the 2018 season against the Lions on Monday Night, Sept 10. 60 days to be exact.

Just got tickets to the shady side for the colts game   

An obscure entry for Day 56.  The first man ever to wear #56 as both a Titan and a Jet.   #56, Roger Ellis.  Ellis played on both sides of the ball for the Titans as a LB in 1960 and he con

Jet Juice? Do you take online orders?

Can't.  Too busy cultivating a cannabis strain with the same name.  Problem for me right now is that all test batches leave the user with feelings of extreme anger coupled with staggering depression.  lol

Anyway, here's the recipe for Jet Juice given by Boynton Jets Fan some time ago:  One part each of vodka, light rum and Midori; two parts lemonade (limeade works well, too).  I've made gallon-sized batches or just a cocktail shaker filled with ice.  I always use homemade lemonade, but store bought is perfectly fine.  You can tweak the recipe depending on how much booze and/or sweetness you like.   Hope you enjoy it.

Rough day, Day 38.  Not many Jets who have worn #38 have had much of an impact.

Going back to the 1970s and Ed Taylor, who started 50 games for the Jets in 5 seasons as Safety and CB before being waived in 1979.

If your “test batches” are only consumed during Jets games, you might be confusing your variables. Lol

Day 35.  Another day with limited options.  And when options are limited, it is never a bad choice to go with a guy with a ring.

Matt Snell's back-up, Billy Joe.  Joe suffered a career ending knee injury during the Heidi game in Nov 68.  He also set a AFL/NFL record earlier that season when he rushed for 3 TDs in one quarter in a 48-14 defeat of the Boston Patriots.  Billy Joe. #35.

And Lee White.

White was the Jets 1st round pick in 1968.  Tore up his knee in the first quarter of his first game that season, but better remembered for his role in Joe Namath's knee injury during a 1971 preseason game against the Lions. A Lee White fumble was picked up by Lions LB Mike Lucci.  Joe tried to make the tackle, got hit by another defender and tore up his knee.

Wanted to kick this back off again, in honor of the 3rd preseason game happening today. Although his time was short, he is quite possibly the best Jet to wear the number 17, and had 900+ receiving yards in 2010, which helped the Jets reach the AFC championship game for the 2nd year in a row!

My favortie memory of #17, from that same season.

Barylon's catch setting up the game winning FG in Indy.  Was at that game with my son.  Best Jet game I have ever seen live.

I really enjoyed Edwards' brief time with us.  This memory is my absolute favorite:

 

I remember Braylon said that he had been inspired by Dennis Byrd, who they brought in for an motivational talk that week.
