Earlier this month, Jets punt protector Tim Tebow was booed at a Yankees game. Tonight, two of his teammates received similar treatment at Madison Square Garden.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that quarterback Mark Sanchez and receiver Santonio Holmes heard boos when an image of the duo sitting courtside was displayed on the video board during the game between the Knicks and the L.A. Clippers.
It has been widely reported that Holmes and Sanchez were at odds last season, a rift that began because Sanchez couldn’t get the ball to Holmes enough to keep the receiver happy, a standard that possibly would be satisfied only if Sanchez completed a pass to Holmes on every single play. The inability of the two men to act like grown men apparently hasn’t been lost on the citizens of New York.
Jets fans likely will post comments explaining that Knicks fans predominantly are Giants fans. If Holmes and Sanchez and Tebow don’t get it together for 2012, the Jets fans at MetLife Stadium will sound predominantly like Giants fans, too.
