Same old Jets and Aretha’s (very) wishful thinking

The NY Jets talked the talk all season, even after a monumental beatdown at the hands of the New England Patriots several weeks ago. Last Sunday afternoon in Foxboro, Massachusetts, they walked the walk. It’s one thing for fans to say their team should win a big game, but when the entire team talks about winning a do or die game, then they go out and emphatically do it, that’s something special.
 
Consider these facts; Mark Sanchez has won 4 road playoff games in his 2 year professional career. That’s more than Brett Favre won in his entire career. More than any other quarterback in Jets history. Sanchez has been the quarterback for a team that has gone to two straight AFC championship games in his first two years in the NFL, and he hasn’t been piggybacking on a stout defense, he has been a major part of their success. I think Sanchez will have a great future as the leader of the New York Jets.
 
Prior to the season, Sports Illustrated picked the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers to play in the Super Bowl. Rex Ryan predicted the NY Jets will be in the Super Bowl. One of these prognosticators will be proven wrong this weekend. I’m thinking the Jets will prevail and the Packers will defeat the Chicago Bears.
 
Sooo….this is kind of interesting. Aretha Franklin was recently discussing a ‘proposed’ biopic of her life. She indicated that she would love Halle Berry to play her younger self in this movie.
 
Let’s just let that marinate for a minute. And look at a picture of both of these greats (R).

Halle Berry graciously has said she’s not interested…because she can’t sing like Aretha. Good save, Halle!

Slaughterhouse’s new album is scheduled to be released on February 8th, 2011. If you’ve never listened to this group, the best way for me to describe them is simply the best hip-hop group in the world right now, bar none. The first single, featuring my boys from Yonkers The Lox, is here.
 
One month to pitchers and catchers.

Who's Dwight?

Well, for starters, i'm a Jamaican born resident of New York who loves sports, politics, books (reading and writing them) and meaningful debate. I'm also a published author of two books, several short stories and articles-with more on the way-and most importantly i'm never without an opinion. I try to keep abreast of the world around me and look at things from my perspective-which is sometimes irreverent, occasionally funny, frequently frank, and at times downright weird.
