Found February 05, 2012 on Turn On The Jets:

Considering my track record on predictions this year, I am glad this will be my final one for awhile.

The Super Bowl? I started the two weeks ago firmly behind the notion of rooting for the Giants. Now after two weeks of listening to them run their mouths and predict parades and victories, while getting in plenty of cheap shots at the Jets…it hasn’t been quite so easy.

Hey, I really get why people hate Rex Ryan and the Jets. I always have. It is annoying to hear so much chatter from a team, when it isn’t your own.

It seems to me that everybody loves the Giants this week and they are overconfident. In a rational world, they should come out and take one on the chin from the Patriots led by Brady and Belichick. But this season hasn’t been a rational one for Jets fans, as everything that could go wrong has went wrong starting with the beating they took in Philadelphia and culminating with Giants/Patriots Championship Game victories aided by lucky special teams plays.

I have come to accept that I won’t be happy with the result either way and as a mature adult, I am going to still run my mouth throughout the game to whichever team is losing or struggling at the particular time and then talk smack to whatever fan base loses.

My prediction? Considering how this season I went, I bet today is the greatest game ever played and the Giants win on a hail mary when four Patriots defenders run into each other and the ball shoots up in the air and magically lands in Henry Hynoski’s hands…or something like that.

Super Bowl Sunday: Black Curtains for Jet Fans

Nothing will be as bad for me as the Yankees-Phillies World Series in 2009, but I've been avoiding dealing with this Super Bowl as much as possible. And it's not because I can't stomach the thought of either team's fans celebrating and laughing at the Jets. It's because those other teams and their fans have good reason to lord it over Gang Green.After three years...

Mark Sanchez should have been the Grand Marshall of the New York Giants Super Bowl Parade

I hate parades because they are a waste of money, but I do love a girl making a fool of herself on television. Who is Eli Manning in New York? Where is (Mark) Sanchez? This girl must be related to Rex Ryan or getting her feet sucked by him every once and a while.[Follow me @TravisHouser]
