Look Jets if you don’t want to go overses, in this case to England, just say no! Definitely don’t say yes and then prove that for you, leaving home, is the biggest trauma of all time. Such fear is excusable in little kids but a terrible look for grown men.
When NFL teams go to England to show off America’s football, there is of course a subtext, not spoken about but it’s there. It goes something like this, “Look England, our American guys, the ones who whupped your butts in the Revolutionary War are twice as tough and skilled as you soccer and rugby playing funny looking little guys from the old world, the world we thankfully left behind.”
The Jets and other NFL football teams even have the uniform to prove it. They stream onto the field with helmuts, shoulder pads and tight tights looking like the biggest and most fierce gladiators of all time. And then, having set the stag, they have to live up to the implicit threat of terrible violence and mayhem about to be wrought.
So the Jets ruin it all. Their management gets worried that all that foreigness will throw their players off their game. To prevent such a possibility, they helpfully fill up containers of stuff to make sure their charges still feel like they’re at home. They take along hot and barbecue sauces the players are used to, they train a chef in London in how to cook ‘American football player food’ which you know is a very rare cuisine.
And they bring double ply toilet paper, crates of the stuff, so their players don’t break down under the horrors of the single ply variety that the English use.
I just hope someone in the Jets management is currently hanging their heads in shame. This is soooo not the way to do it guys. The gladiators who can’t wipe themselves with single ply???
