Not a great Jet, not a Jet fan, but I like the guy.
Here's my quick Boomer story -- When I was about 10 I went with my dad to a football pro-am golf tournament in North Jersey. As a little kid football fan I was pretty starstruck from the likes of Jim Kelly and Dan Marino in the flesh five feet away. Then Boomer came up to the tee, the QB of my beloved Jets. He must have seen the huge smile on my face because he walked over and gave me a golf ball and made some small talk. Heck of a nice guy.
Listening to him on the radio every day, he seems to be extremely genuine and down to earth. As a naive Jets fan back then I was a big Boomer fan, and I still am.
The band guys grow up to be VP's with six-figure salaries and BMW's in the green lot.
The jocks grow up to be grass cutters with five-figure salaries and F-150's in the orange lot.
Girls are smart now, they know where to put their focus.
You mean, the bandleader geek grew up to be one of a hundred middle manager VPs in the big company, struggling to make ends meet in the Tri-state area on a piddling 6 figure salary, while parking their leased entry level BMW starter car in the orange lot?
While the captain of the football team, in contrast, earns a ridiculous eight-figure salary, gets dropped off at work in a stretch limo keeping the Bentley clean in the garage, and is married to the supermodel or centerfold?
