Got a dog shortly after loss to Pittsburgh. Named her Jet. Haven't been to the playoffs since

You should now get a new dog and name that one 'Patriots' after their loss to the Bills

You' re the first guy to be honest enough to list this. It's become a disease for me.

Sitting here watching these games and hearing these crowds I started thinking about something I hadn’t before.  What all has changed in my life since the Jets last played in a playoff game?  Would love to hear others too.  This thread may suck, or it might be fun.  Maybe therapeutic. Might get to know some of you better. My list is below.

Got married.  

Switched employers  for the 1st time as an adult.  

Had 3 kids

Lost last two living grand parents 

Went back to college and finished my degree.

Bought 1st house.  Sold it.  Bought second house.  Sold it.  Bought 3rd house.  

Got snipped because I’m not buying anymore houses.

Got my first gray hairs.

Had to get glasses.

Still not 40.

Its Been A Long Time Reaction GIF

Great line. Really cool idea for a thread. Thanks.

Myself, wife, and four kids 11 and under. We're ready to kill each other in a quarantine battle royale. 

I'm in quarantine right now, day 6. The virus itself is very unpleasant, the boredom is extreme. I'm the only one in the family who has it, so I am a lonely leper.

Makes me wish that one of the things I had actually done since the last Jets playoff game was sort out the spare bedroom.

Decent TV, comfortable bed, gaming system...nope, I got around to adding precisely none of them in here since the Sanchize era.

Had my only child

Bought a home

turned 40 (yeesh)

grew my law practice from no employees to 5

competed in a spartan race

Got my BJJ blue belt

Got my Krav Maga orange belt

 

 

I had to look up Spartan race because I was unfamiliar.  Probably because an item I left of my list was get in the worst shape of my life.

Any way, that’s some pretty cooL stuff!  I don’t know if I could make it through the sign up process 🤣🤣

This is an amazing thread concept.   Really made me think about all that went on and where Iam today.  This was a period where I hit absolute bottom in my life and in many ways today I'm in the best place I've ever been in my life.   

Got my health, my business is going well and I got remarried this year.  It's been a journey to get to today.   I'm very optimistic about what lays down the road and it's always good to look in the rear view mirror and see what you're leaving behind.   I think about the people I loved who are no longer here almost every day.   Makes me love the people who are still around even more.  Health and love hang on to both as long as you can...

Your situation is not ideal. We're glad we all got it at the same time. Today is our last day. Kids are getting punted to the bus stop tomorrow morning.
