The New York Jets have been nominated in FanSided’s “Fandom 250” which ranks all the major fandoms across sports, politics, authors, and so much more.
When FanSided announced they were ranking all the major fandoms across the globe, it’s hard to imagine such a list without the New York Jets on it. Thankfully, the Jets have made the cut and now we wait to see where exactly they finally rank. Besides having one of the most iconic players to ever play the game in Joe Namath, the Jets, believe it or not, do bring much happiness to fans all across the globe.
While some may believe it’s mostly heartache, the Jets do indeed hold a soft spot in the hearts of many that bleed Gang Green. Fans of the Jets, collectively known as Jets Nation, are indeed a strong and passionate bunch.
It’s not easy rooting for this team in the grand scheme of things. Similar to a roller coaster in a theme park, there are plenty of ups and downs, well, mostly downs, but we continue coming back for more. We’ll always root for our team through thick and thin since one of these days, it will all be worth it when everything comes together to deliver another championship.
We all have our stories of what made us root for this team, whether it’s that famous Super Bowl III guarantee by Broadway Joe, Wayne Chrebet making a clutch touchdown reception or the New York Sack Exchange terrorizing quarterbacks, we all have our stories. Our tailgating is legendary and well, Jets Nation should hopefully rank pretty well in FanSided’s Fandom 250.
Overall, we here at The Jet Press can’t wait to see where fans of the Jets rank since they deserve a high spot in the Fandom 250. The history of this team is rich and even though it hasn’t produced as many championships as fans would have liked, we will always love our team no matter what. From the Monday Night Miracle to the time Brett Favre first wore a green and white uniform, the Jets will continue to forever give fans something to talk about.
