It's a rapid-fire Tuesday here at PTF as we try to pack in as much sports as we can before the Holidays and that whole end of the world thing that's happening this weekend.
We start with a holiday of its own in Jets Elimination Day, which predictably took place in agonizing fashion once again last night. There is no doubt that Jets fans take some sort of sick pleasure in the fact that their team is the definition of a crash-and-burn circus year-in and year-out. I mean, even Raiders fans have their limits.
Here is a stereotypical Jets fan, cigarette firmly in mouth, attempting to destroy his Mark Sanchez jersey last night immediately after the Jets lost to the Titans on Monday Night Football. Of course, even a task as simple as that didn't go too well and had this guy successfully lit the jersey on fire we know now that Fireman Ed would not have been there to put out the flames. What a season.
If some grudge-holders still can't get that image of Boggs riding around Yankee Stadium on a police horse out of their heads, here is an image that should help the matter a bit. Here is the Wade Boggs "Fried Chicken Man" dance at an Oklahoma City Thunder game.
