Playoff Picks: #JETS and #SEAHAWKS

For those that know me, I’m a multi-team fan.  Football started having a distant family member play for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Always kept me excited, and never discouraged from a loss.

The Seattle Mariners pulled me into baseball.  Ken Griffey Jr. was the ultimate human being  for a long time.  Finally making it to Safeco Field after many years of waiting,  I couldn’t help but notice the roar coming from Qwest Field. I get curious about what brings fans on the edge of their seats. The Emerald City became the first package containing all my interests for a little while.

Favre got picked up by the New York Jets.  I was more curious than ever how that acquisition would affect the team and fans.  Never heard much about the Jets except through @garyvee.  After watching a few games,  I realized it wasn’t Favre keeping me glued in.  There’s lots of good things happening here.  Rex Ryan is my favorite coach.  Knowing there are solid guys like Cromartie and Revis tying the knots with defense. Holmes, Keller, and Edwards for big yards. The Jets might be an unreliable team to the media and some football fans, but I’m a firm believer in growth.   People are pinning that growth to Mark Sanchez.  I’m even guilty of saying “I could sell my Sanchez jersey right now”,  but I’m a believer.

J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!
