The New York Jets have a plethora of fans all across the world and especially celebrities. Here are the top five celebrities that are Jets fans.
Fans of the New York Jets come from all walks of life as celebrities are no exception to the cause. For decades now, lots of fans have endured the highs and well, a lot of lows, when it comes to being a Jets fan.
From incredible performances, playoff appearances, and those that are old enough to remember their Super Bowl III championship, the Jets have provided many great memories to fans across the world. Every now and then during home games, famous celebrities will be in attendance to hopefully witness more of that Gang Green magic.
Television actors, acclaimed writers, and even famous comedians have all pledged their allegiance to the Jets and have incorporated the franchise in some way, shape, or form in their respective fields. It’s all about being proud of who you root for even when the going gets tough.
Here are the top five celebrities that will forever chant J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS to the top of their lungs every single time they’re at a Jets game.
5. Ray Romano
The “Everybody Loves Raymond” star, Ray Romano, has been a Jets fan all of his life. He tends to make an appearance at the first home game opener of the regular season to be there to hopefully witness a victory.
Romano was born in Queens, NY which would be one of the biggest reasons why he grew up a Jets fan. Queens is home to many Jets and New York Mets fans with friends and family always attending home games when their teams are playing.
Owning a plethora of Jets jerseys, hats, merchandise, and a lot of knick-knacks, Romano is always proud to speak about his fandom with the franchise. Win or lose, he’ll always speak fondly of his childhood growing up watching the Jets on television, admiring all his gridiron heroes.
Romano is one of many celebrities that root for the Jets and regularly puts videos and pictures up on social media whenever he attends games or functions wearing green and white. Now we know why everybody loves him.

4. Adam Sandler
Adam Sandler loves the Jets so much, he even made a movie in which he actually purchased the team. “Mr. Deeds” will forever be in the hearts of Jets fans since, for a long time, they’ve been wanting someone else to own the team so he turned that fantasy into a reality, at least in the movies.
Sandler also mentioned the Jets in “Little Nicky” in which Satan was actually a fan of the franchise. The story goes that he refused to buy the soul of legendary quarterback and Jets nemesis Dan Marino in exchange for a Super Bowl ring. Yeah, we all know how much Marino yearns for a championship to his name but us Jets fans have no problems with him never winning it all.
Born in Brooklyn, NY, Sandler also grew up a Jets fan and regularly attends home games. Nothing would make Sandler happier than seeing the Jets win another Super Bowl championship since he was just about three years old when they did it back in 1969.
Hopefully, the Jets will bring him and many other fans a championship since the city that never sleeps was only able to have them featuring the blue football team of New York. One can only imagine how the city would react when the day comes it’ll be Gang Green instead.
Next: 3. Kevin James
3. Kevin James
Born in Long Island, NY, Kevin James has been a Jets fan all his life. He has incredible memories from the days the Jets shared Shea Stadium with the New York Mets. The hit show “King of Queens” captured the magic of what it was like growing up in that borough with his hilarious storylines and jokes.
James always brags about how much he loves his Jets and dislikes the New England Patriots as he made sure to include Gang Green in an episode of his show. For those of you that remember, James proposed to his wife, Carrie, at a Jets game.
What a beautiful way to begin a new life with the person you love that started at a football game, eh? James wasn’t the first nor will he be the last to ask someone to marry them at a Jets game but that moment will forever be captured on television.
Back in 2012, James checked off an item on his bucket list as he got Jets fans at a home game in MetLife Stadium to do the J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS chant to rally the team to victory. Talk about a moment he’ll never forget for the rest of his life.

This will probably be a pretttyyyy, pretttttyyyyy, pretttttyyyy interesting one if you love the television show, “Curb Your Enthusiasm” thanks to the wonderful mind and comedy of Larry David. Besides that, the co-creator of “Seinfeld” isn’t shy about being a Jets fan.

David enjoys going to Jets games and a few years ago, showed up at training camp to give his support and take on the current state of the team. It was there that he boldly predicted he’d make a fantastic offensive and defensive coordinator with a little studying.
Besides his confidence in being able to handle both coordinator duties, David also took credit for getting then quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to shave his legendary beard during training camp. Basically, David felt it was too much of a distraction to the team.
David continues to show his support for the Jets but last year didn’t like that they actually won some football games. For the record, he also wanted the Jets to select Josh Rosen over Sam Darnold so he’s probably also mad about that too.

1. George R.R. Martin
Believe it or not, writer George R.R. Martin not only wrote the legendary “A Game of Thrones” books that turned into a blockbuster television show but he often blogs about his two favorite football teams. Besides being a fan of the Jets, he’s also a huge fan of the New York Giants.
It’s a rare sight to see someone love both the Jets and Giants but it does pop up once in a while. He’s adamant about both teams proving that the big apple should always be competitive and contending teams on a daily basis.
Martin will often times attend a few home games of both teams every season as he was born in Bayonne, NJ. He doesn’t have a preference between either team but undoubtedly must have enjoyed the two Super Bowl championships earned by the Giants in the last decade.
Hopefully, one year, Martin gets to sit back and enjoy a championship season by the Jets. While it’s doubtful and unlikely anything regarding the Jets will be featured in the “Game of Thrones” universe, it would be a great read to see a blog post detailing how he feels about the Jets winning it for just the second time in franchise history. One always has to have hope that it will actually happen one of these days.
