Pats/Jets Tonight

Just a quick note to let you know that the New England Patriots play the New York Jets tonight at 8:30 PM.

The game is on the NFL Network, and is also on WCVB Channel 5. You can hear it on 95.1 WXTK-FM.

We'll expound on the game tomorrow. All that we want you to know today is that this column is the longtime and maybe only proponent of a New York Jets logo switch. I feel this way 100% because of 9/11. Calling a New York team the "Jets" after 9/11 is like naming the Boston team the "Stranglers," or naming the Chicago team the "Fire." Hiroshima and Nagasaki both have pro baseball teams, and neither one is named "Fat Man."

I think I'm alone on this one, so I'll spare you the rant... however, they should be named the "Apples" or something.

The Patriots are favored by 11.5 points, and the over/under is 43. We're taking the Jets, and the under.
