Jets Tease Fans

I didn't receive this because I'm not a season ticket holder for the Jets. However, a member of the local media community did, and Michael Remis tweeted out that image earlier today. Why is this significant? Well, it appears the Jets will be one of the teams who sport an alternate jersey this season! After the success the Jets have been having regarding sales of their Heritage Classic jersey, should we be surprised?

If the Jets are going to capitalize on this phenomenon again, all they have to do is make the Heritage Classic jersey blue. It will sell like hot cakes in this city, and people will literally sign over access to their bank accounts to acquire one. As Terence Mann stated in Field of Dreams, "They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it. For it is money they have and peace they lack." That peace they lack comes from the lingering void experienced when the Jets moved to Arizona, and I'm quite certain those fans will buy the new jersey to both support the team and fill that void where the Winnipeg Jets V1.0 once lived.

We'll find out more on September 14, but the Jets are seemingly sitting on a gold mine here if they decided to don the V1.0 blue jerseys for select home games this season. Heritage jerseys seem to be the fad right now, and the Jets know how to deliver to their fans when it comes to their uniform choices.

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
