As it turns out, the Jets aren’t the only AFC finalist taking advance orders on gear that boasts to the world the achievement of a goal that the team has yet to achieve.
The Colts are doing it, too.
The link comes from NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy, who tweeted that point in response to our story from earlier in the hour regarding the availability of shirts and hats and other stuff bragging about victory in Sunday’s AFC title game.
McCarthy points out that it’s common practice to accept advance orders. Though my Eye-talian heritage counsels against such jinx-inducing gestures, the fact that both teams are doing it means that only one of them will be jinxed.
Unless the game ends in a tie.
