Jets Fans Rally in Times Square
At this very moment, Jets fans are rallying with Mayor Bloomberg to jack themselves up for Sunday's AFC Championship game. The team is certainly jacked up, and its website is already selling championship gear. ("After seeing this," tweets agentdp009, "if the Colts don't win, then they need a new coach.") The NYC GO tourism page tells us that "Manhattan will even be (unofficially) renamed Revis Island until the end of the playoffs in honor of unstoppable cornerback Darrelle Revis." (Background on Revis Island here.) Adding to the reverberations: the Jets' nemesis on Sunday is the Colts, whom they met back in 1969 in what some New Yorkers still consider a memorable game.
