Momentum
1: a property of a moving body that the body has by virtue of its mass and motion and that is equal to the product of the body’s mass and velocity; broadly : a property of a moving body that determines the length of time required to bring it to rest when under the action of a constant force
or
2: strength or force gained by motion or through the development of events : impetus

“The campaign gained momentum.”

Sports are all about momentum.  Which team has it and which team has lost it.  Look at definition #2 above and now look at our lowly Jets.  Events have developed in such a manner that it seems just by taking the field the Jets are giving the opposing team momentum.  Favre’s first play against the Bengels?  Here’s the ball (fumble) and go score a touchdown.  Our first drive against the Patriots?  Missed chip shot.  Our first against the Cardinals?  offsides on the defense-NOT and another “here’s the ball, go score a touchdown.”  Against the Raiders last week?  well, we spent the whole game giving Oakland momentum.

Without momentum the Jets are doomed.  We must swing the pig-skin pendulum back into our Fav-re.  We must seize the momentum, build upon it, and keep it all the way through the rest of the season and into the playoffs.  “But how can we, as mere sports fans, give the Jets the momentum they sorely need,” you ask?  Luckily, I have the answer.

Voodoo

Full on 100% lets-get-some-good-JuJu-going Voodoo.  That’s what I’m talking about and it’s not as far-fetched as it sounds.

The first thing we must do is congregate.  All good Voodoo starts with a ceremony and the bigger the better.  Through the wonders of modern technology we can congregate without actually all having to be over at my apartment in the East Village.  I mean you guys rock and stuff, but Manhattan diggs are pretty small and my fridge can only hold so much beer and my girlfriend already has trouble putting up with one crazy Jets fan on Sundays.  I can only imagine how she’d deal with the legions that we shall become over the next few months.

No my apartment as a congregation point will not do.  Instead, I invoke the Voodoo of the twitter so that you will never again have to watch a Jets game alone.  Good times, bad times- we’ll be together for all the times and our JuJu will undeniable.

All you have to do is go here.  If you don’t have a twitter account you’ll have to create one but that only takes 30 seconds and aren’t the Jets winning the Super Bowl worth a half of a freakin’ minute of your life? Look, even if they don’t win the Super Bowl this is the beginning of a very big club and you as a Jets fan (and as a man) should want to be part of it.  Go ahead and link your cell phone up too so that you can reply from wherever you are be it bar, couch, or stadium.  There will be no Jets JuJu activity except during game time so you need not fear annoying text beeps all week long.

This is only the tip of the iceburg my friends but remember that iceburgs were once part of glaciers and glaciers carved out the Grand Canyon so anything is possible.  Ok, so maybe the Colorado river created the Grand Canyon but Glaciers also carved parts of the map…  I mean globe.  Look, Glaciers are important and they’re vanishing so if you care about global warming you should join the Jets in our JuJu making.  The world will be better for it.

There is currently one response to “Read This and Never Watch the Jets Alone- Seriously”

Hot Stove New York uses Gravatars — short for Globally Recognized Avatars — for the pictures that show up next to comments.

    I had to create an account before I could join. A little confusing since Twitter’s search option is down. After you have an account, then you can click on “join the Jets in our JuJu making.”

    Go HotStove! This is good stuff.
