The Goose feels his Tailgate is special because they have a variety of people with all kinds of different backgrounds and who each person started out with there own personal Tailgate but, have all come together behind the “TheVeterans” for one common goal and that is to have fun and see the JETS succeed.. Our Tailgate is definitely one of the best because we have a family oriented environment. We know how to have a good time and make the most of it every home game.
