“Sanchez! Sanchez!” yelled the five-year old girl a few steps to my right. She wore a Mark Sanchez jersey and clutched a small poster, hoping for an autograph. “Sanchez! Come over here!” The New York Jets quarterback stood about 20 yards away talking with a trainer. He was well within earshot.“Sanchez!” she yelled. Her father and brothers stood around her, caps and yearbooks waiting to be signed. But then Mark Sanchez jogged towards the locker room without even turning around.For the Jets’ Friday, August 24th practice, season ticket holders were emailed invitations to attend as VIPs.
