The first time I heard the “J-E-T-S” chant was exciting. I really didn’t know what was going on. If you remember, at the time, the stadium didn’t do it in unison. One side of the stadium would do it, and the other would do it back, a call and response. My Dad told me what was going on, the tradition of it, and I was all ready to scream my heart out for my team.
I don’t remember a lot of detail about the game, I remember that the Jets won in OT, on a Pat Leahy field goal(the score was 16-13). What I do remember is the action. Football action live is amazing, especially to an eight year old. I looked at the boxscore, and am reminded of a long TD pass from Ken O’Brien to Wesley Walker. O’Brien was my favorite player at the time, so I can imagine how pumped I really was.
