to all you Jet fans out there.
As one who is not a die-hard fan of the team, I was satisfied about a good quality game (i.e., not a blow-out), even if the outcome was a disappointment. Lots of missed opportunity, flubbed tackles, etc. Got a kick out of all those Facebook folk who were commenting during the game. I know multitasking is the thing nowadays, but come one, people, just watch the game and stop venting in real time.
Now for the virtually endless wait til Super Bowl Sunday, where the media scrambles for things to write about. So tell me, Ben Rothlisberger, if you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?
We had another snow day at the office on Friday, so I didn’t get a chance to post this link submitted by Jason Diamond over at jewcy.com about da Jewish fan base for da Bers. Hey, if their ancestors could wander in the desert for 40 years, they can wait one more for another attempt.
In case you missed it, there was this bittersweet piece in the Times yesterday about the only two remaining players from the last time the Green Bay Packers played Chicago for the play-in game for the NFL Championship — 70 years ago. Both gentleman are now 92 and one — Johnny Siegal — is Jewish, playing alongside Sid Luckman in that game.
