A Dad’s Jets Dilemma

In this clip, Rich Eisen discusses the New York Jets and their poorly timed win over the Los Angeles Rams. But he brings up something else that’s dad-related.

Eisen’s son asked him if he was upset about the win, and while he was indeed (because this means they probably won’t get the number one pick) he felt like he should say something else. Namely that the win was great because it showed character. The team didn’t take defeat lying down. Talking about running back Frank Gore, Eisen said, “I’m a hall of famer and I don’t want 0-16 on my resume.” (Paraphrasing.)

But he’s a Jets fan. And he needs to teach his son a different lesson. Namely, that the Jets stink and will always hurt you, no matter what.
