“Learn to live it, learn to love it” is the slogan for “Reverend Bill” Martino and his 4B crew which started during the days of Shea. Martino boasts being part of a brotherhood that considers themselves one of the top and more unique tailgate groups that meets regularly during New York Jets home games.

Besides regular tailgate faire, the 4B weekly menu tries to emulate the cuisine and culture of the visiting team. On opening day, to celebrate the signing of Brett Favre the crew prepared beer battered shrimp and pan seared scallops in a Wisconsin cheddar cheese sauce.
The 4B crew averages 50-100 visitors per week and in 2004, was proclaimed as the "Ultimate Tailgate Party" by none other than1050 ESPN Radio and as a result of that experience we all got to party on Super Bowl Sunday at The ESPN Zone in NYC
