J-E-T-S are B-E-S-T

The Jets might stink as a football team, but at least they showed some character and decency as human beings over the weekend:  "They stood side-by-side linked arm-in-arm as the national anthem was sung at MetLife Stadium on Sunday. Not a single Jet took a knee or staged his own individual protest over President Trump’s disparaging comments and tweets about the NFL and its players.  The Jets had decided during a team meeting Saturday night that if nothing else, they would be unified in their message and when chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson joined them on the sideline the Jets suddenly became better than anyone could have imagined."

On the other hand, you have this:  "Many people heralded Pittsburgh Steeler football player Alejandro Villanueva as a hero for standing up during the national anthem…. Today, not-so-much.
Unfortunately, today Villaneuva says he was embarrassed to stand for the U.S. flag and National Anthem; and he apologized to his team and coach for not supporting their decision to stay in the locker room." Apologized? For doing the right thing? The only thing he should be embarrassed about is his about-face!
