jets rally in times square

New York Jets AFC Championship Game Rally

by Joe on January 23, 2010

This Sunday the New York Jets head out to face the Indianapolis Colts for the AFC Championship for the first time in over a decade and the first Super Bowl appearance in over 40 years. Leading up to the game, the Jets have had a few events for Jet fans and New Yorkers to participate in, the biggest being a Thursday night rally in the heart of New York City, or as Mayor Bloomberg dubbed it this week, Revis Island!

Some of the notable guests were Leon Washington and All-Time Jet great Curtis Martin, along with the Flight Crew, Fireman Ed, Mayor Bloomberg, and Governor Patterson. I took the subway up to Times Square and immediately I was surrounded by a sea of Green. I wondered around the rally and even ran into a few guys who are regulars at our tailgate parties. After the rally I went over to Schnippers Quality Kitchen which was in the neighborhood. Schnippers was featured on Throwdown With Bobby Flay for their sloppy joe. Obviously I had to have a sloppy joe, and I ordered up a green chili cheese dog and onion rings to give the joint a well rounded review, which gets a solid thumbs up.

Below is some video footage of the rally, along with some pics of the rally and even a few from Schnippers.
