    Actually When I was little I first started getting into football, I liked the steelers, because of their colors, but my whole family liked the giants. When there were no steelers games on and more jets and Giants, I picked the Jets to be different, and have been a long life fan since...

    The misery started in 1977 when i was 12. My Mom married my stepfather who had season tickets. I blame him to this day!

    1998.

    I was only 11.

    My first Jets game I saw was the 1st game of the year against the 49ers which didn't have a good ending.

    I picked the Jets the same reason as you, the only person in my family at the time that is a Jets fan is my Grandpa, the rest were Giants fans.

    1986, I was 12 years old. Dad took me to the "shootout at the Meadowlands" when Ken O'Brien lead the Jets to victory over Dan Marino, 51-45 in OT.

    I was about 5 years old....this was in the early 70's.....my father was a fan since they were the Titans.

    I actually remember going to Shea stadium to watch the Jets as a kid.

    When I was a Kid I love playing Football and used to watch with my Grandfather who was a Giant Fan and my Uncle who was a Brown Fan..In 1960 the AFL started and I got my uncle to take me to the Polo Grounds for the First Titan Game against the Bills! Al Dorow was the QB and Slinging Sammy Baugh was the Coach.. We beat the Bills 27-3! Some Jet Players you may have heard of were on that Titan Team like Don Maynard and Larry Grantham! The AFL was a wild Bomb Throwing League..And to me it was the most exciting football I had ever seen compared to the 3 yds and a cloud of dust that was the NFL..1960 I became a Titan Fan and have been with this franchise ever since!
