Check out the priceless things to do this week in New York City, week of August 18th-24th.
That the Jets would reach out to Anzalone to help revive the chant, even if he turned them down, is proof positive that this organization isn’t tone deaf.
The Jets are hoping to find a superfan — or superfans — to keep their iconic chant alive. But that wasn’t Plan A, according to “Fireman Ed” Anzalone.
The New York Jets super-fan known as Fireman Ed simply grew tired of the increasing harassment in the stands at MetLife Stadium. Some cursed at him. Others spit on him. Beer was also tossed his way.
If there’s one person in this town who could revive the “J-E-T-S” chant, it’s WFAN’s own Joe Benigno. But he’d rather take a Geno Smith spiral right to the face.
The J-E-T-S chant is in the hands of the F-A-N-S. The Jets are holding a fan vote to pick eight season ticket holders to lead the team’s familiar rallying cry this year.
The New York Jets are doing away with paper tickets for season ticket holders, while offering those fans a rewards plan for showing up regularly and behaving properly.
Snee retired Monday after 10 seasons on New York’s offensive line. Now it’s a matter of when, not if, his name will be added alongside the franchise greats.
During this offseason they worked on improving an inconsistent offense by adding receiver Eric Decker, running back Chris Johnson, and quarterback Michael Vick, and could add more offensive playmakers in the upcoming draft. Things could be looking up for the 2014 NFL season.
Executive Director Ronnie Hakim told a state Senate committee on Thursday that the agency’s expenses for getting fans to MetLife Stadium during Super Bowl week tallied $7.2 million, including overtime.
Demolition of the James Monroe Elementary School is scheduled to start Friday.
Hundreds of students whose New Jersey school was gutted by a fire are getting a special treat Wednesday. About 500 students got the chance to stomp the football field during a surprise trip to MetLife Stadium.
Eric Kunkel was the man who never corrected 3-year-old autistic girl Kate when she called him “Daddy” and engaged her in conversation on a recent flight.
Mayor Michael Gonnelli said a representative of Touchdown Entertainment said the company would pay the town about $18,000. The company contracted to use the local high school as a staging area for the halftime show at MetLife Stadium.
The plan was for the league to use Secaucus High School as a staging area. The town had a contract with the NFL for the arrangement, but the league backed out at the last minute.
