We made the trek the New York today for the draft, and at roughly 9:15 p.m. ET, I strolled with Mrs. PFT and Florio Jr. past Radio City Music Hall, across the street from a throng of roughly 500 jersey-wearing fans who jeered every 10 seconds or so at someone who was being particularly demonstrative about the team whose colors said fan was wearing.
When not create noise that sounded like a roaring murmur, the assembled fans periodically broke into this chant: “We want football! . . . We want football!”
We expect to hear that chant, and variations of it, tomorrow night inside Radio City Music Hall.
Of course, what many of them don’t realize is that they’re well on their way to getting football, at least for 2011.
