The circus continues.
Jets owner Woody Johnson, in a Monday appearance on Bloomberg Television’s Market Makers, addressed whether he prefers a win by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney or a winning season from Johnson’s Jets.
“Well I think you always have to put country first, so I think it’s very, very important that not only for us but for particularly our kids and grandkids that this election comes off with Mitt Romney and [Paul] Ryan as president and vice-president,” Romney said.
It’s a fair response, but it won’t do much to placate the many Jets fans who: (1) don’t own the team; and (2) would put nothing other than the healthy and safety of themselves and their immediate family members above the Jets winning.
Then there’s the fact that half (or at least 47 percent) of Jets fans support Romney’s competitor.
So, basically, it’s yet another thing for Jets fans to discuss. And since it’s not really related to the sorry state of the team, it should be regarded as a welcome distraction.
