It won't mean a thing to you people, but to me...a gift!

I don't post much at all anymore, but I do read the posts and let you younger guys hammer it out.  I've been a Jets fan since '64...a junior in high school when the Jets picked Namath.  Before that, not much of a fan of any particular team.  Fast forward to 1968, the Jets best team by far.  I'm in a little place called Vietnam.  Found out the Jets won the SB about 3 days after...communication wasn't like it is today.  They hire this Joe Douglas guy and to be honest, I didn't know much about him like most of you...just what I read after I knew the Jets were eyeing him.  I watched his presser the other day and afterwards, he brought his family on stage.  BAM...there it was!   Like a beacon in the dark that made my eyes almost as big as our HC.  Joe's dad standing in the back wearing a cap...it said VIETNAM VETERAN.  Like I said, it doesn't mean anything to you guys, but to me, this is an omen or it could be nothing.  Let's hope this is an omen, because I'm in the winter of my life and not many seasons left.

Thank you for your service!

This.  Don’t understand why people don’t see this.  

Grew up with mom saying “you people need to clean your room” or “you people live like pigs, and you expect me to live like that along with you”.  My mother was immaculate.  😂😂

Good stuff Hermanator!!!  Your awesome son must be very proud. How old is he now?   I enjoyed chatting with him for hours after our opening day loses at our tailgaters back in the day.  

You're a good man. Thanks for posting buddy!

Those were good times, even though the Jets crapped the bed.  He's 35 now, can you believe it?!  He was still in high school when we all last met.  Hey, he reminded me of the HOT freaking wings you made...lol.

lol That was in the infancy of the wing evolution. They are perfected now!!! :-) 

35!!!! That's crazy.  It's hard to believe it's been that long. Tell him I said hello whenever you get the chance.  He was such a good kid. Knew the Jets very well and would laugh at all the older guys complaining about the Jets losing!  hahaha
