    OK, let's say God appears to you..

    If you don't believe in god T.S. , you get the picture.

    Let's say God appears to you and says, "You can have a Jets Super Bowl victory
    or x amount dollars." What amount of money would it take for you to give up the Jets Super Bowl win?

    For instance, I think we'd all take the Super Bowl win
    instead of five bucks, but hopefully nobody turns down one million dollars.

    What amount would you take? At this point in my life I'd probably take two grand.

    I'd take the money, kick God in the nuts, rip the cash in half and throw it at him and tell him "That's for making me a Jets fan"

    $2 billion.

    I would then buy the Jets, take suggestions on how to run the team from the Landing Strip, and reach depths of Pfail that the team has never before seen.

    A situation similar to this HAS OCCURED. Joe Willy was approached by satan and satan ask him what he would do to "sell his soul". Aint no amount of dough gunna break that contract.

    :mad::(:steamin:

    edit: Just saw a post similar to this one by Plumber K. Sorry guys no plagerism attempt, Ive been saying that senerio for years.

    Trying not to sound Pious, but money is over rated BIG TIME.

    When I was a broke father, with 2 small kids sharing a coke at McD's.... I wished I could find 50K to pay down my mortgage and make my life a little easier.

    Now, I never wish for money etc..... maybe that's a sign of growing up.

    That said, I would take the money, feed some hungry children and put them through college and watch the JETS!

    Is this going to be like a white robed God with a beard or a nebulous spiral of talking energy type god?

    And then there's the matter of the cash handover....does he just whip out a briefcase, or does he have an apostle or something that handles his money.

    And, is this money going to be created out of thin air, essentially being counterfeited, or does it get moved from one earthly source to another thereby creating a possible legal wrinkle?

    IE; Saying "God gave it to me because of the Jets" to the poleez could engender an unpleasant and unanticipated response.

    This is a power beyond even God's limitations. Only a higher power can accomplish this feat.

    Who's Andy? :P

    I've put enough money in this team already hoping for a SB win. So what's another million.

    I'd ask God why He didn't have anything better to do...I don't think He needs the money or cares about sports. I'd ask really important things such as if He could see me whenever I repeatedly accidentally clicked on those porn sites :D

    I would take the money! Crap $1000 and i'm sold!

    As i told my Wife, if the jets ever win the Super Bowl i really think it would ruining football for me. As Jets fan we know what to expect every season, a few hight points and then the big letdown at the end! If the Jets won a super bowl i would have nothing to hope for and get pissed off about!
