  • Should Flight Crew be Grounded?

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog

    My colleague Jane McManus of The Journal News has penned an interesting column criticizing The Jets Flight Crew.

    If I ever took my 4-year-old daughter to a Jets game (she’s already been to a Yankees game and a high school football game at Giants Stadium), I’m not sure how I’d feel about her seeing the Flight Crew or how I’d explain what they were doing at a football game.

    What do you think?

    • While we can certainly make the argument that this style of entertainment has no connection to the sporting contest we purchased tickets to, why would you single out the Jets?

      Have you been to a Knicks game lately? How about an Islanders game? Barely dressed teenage girls cleaning up the crease? Take a close look at the dance team and cheerleaders at a SJU game. Take a trip out to the Island and watch the Wantagh cheerleaders at a HS football game.

      I have a daughter and have never been embarrassed bringing her to an event where there were cheerleaders.

      I did have a minor problem explaining to her why the Governor of NY was utilizing a hooker, and why the Governor of NJ was having sex with other men.

    • Umm, Adam. Can you let your readers know where they have these try-outs? I think I’d like to attend. :-p
