Boomer Esiason Prank

Recommended Posts

When Boomer was a Jet, I vaguely remember him pulling the free turkey prank on rookies that year.  It was recorded and broadcast on MSG, I think.  Those were some hard partying years for me, so I may have it wrong.  Anyone recall something like that being done in the early 90's? If so, know of a possible link to the video?  Couldn't find anything with Google, so I figured I'd ask here.

I did this at my government job I told the new guys to go to the main office to get their free ham for Easter 2 of them went. LOL I was called in and I said well if these are the people you are hiring who believed me then I have nothing to say. We all laughed and still do to this day when I see some of them.

We did this every Christmas to the newbies. We even had FREE HAM stickers made up for them to "turn in" to HR. Great times.

Respect is earned not given, same job for 35 years with many promotions I know they did. 

Why do you continually try and troll me, did I hurt your feelings somewhere along the line.

Its a shame some people walk around with a stick up their ass and act all prim, proper and professional when in reality they aren't. 

It was a harmless joke no one got hurt, great times for sure.

Hey, the comment was just meant as a practical joke.

In a fit of rage after being humiliated by your practical joke, one of those men you pranked actually ran down my grandfather with a pickup truck.  Luckily he didn't kill him.  But both his legs were severed at the knees and could not be reattached even after 11 hours of micro-surgery.  And Pops also lost all sense of smell which haunted him till the day he was trampled by a crazed elephant at a Ringling Brothers performance.  Just couldn't smell the peanuts on its breath. Although Pops tried valiantly, he just did not have enough arm strength to propel his wheelchair past the rampaging beast.  RIP and hugs, grandpops.

Neither own a pickup truck. 

They both returned to work after lunch laughing about the entire thing,

We are good friends till this day.

Just curious, what was Booners best season as a Jet? Record wise..

Any clever person would have gone out and bought a turkey or ham made up a certificate brought it back and said 'Hey thanks!'  H/R was great, they only have a few left though.
