    Long time Jets fan from Long Island

    Hello all. I guess it's proper to introduce myself so here goes...

    I haven't really lurked here or anything so I'll take it a bit slow and see how things are here. From what I can see so far, I like it.

    I'm a long time Jets fan. I grew up in a household where my father and brother were both Giants fans but I always liked to travel my own road. I was just a kid in the late 60's when Joe Willie took us to the promised land and I was hooked. Been a Jets fan ever since.

    Though I had Jets stuff my whole life, (probably from Sears as a kid) I think my first real jersey was Al Toon's #88. Still haven't bought a Klecko jersey yet but I'll get around to it sooner or later. These days it's a Revis jersey.

    I live on Long Island with my wife and 2 kids who are all big Jets fans and even have a dog named Jet. I love going to games and have been splitting a season ticket plan with a buddy of mine where I have been getting a couple of tickets to half of the games.

    I was on the Jets season ticket waiting list for a long time and obviously with the new stadium, I got the call from the Jets saying that I could now get tickets. Of course, I jumped at the chance.

    I'm looking forward to being at the first real home game in Jets history. And though I have had many great times in the Meadowlands, I wish I could push a button to blow the old stadium up. (Although I hear it's going to be a wrecking ball.) We've waited too damn long to have a place that we can truly say is our home stadium!

    But for now, I'm excited about the playoffs. I really like our chances this week and I love the direction that the team is going.

    Well, that's it for now.

    Go Jets!!!
