Ya Done Good, Jets

If today's vicious rain and winds weren't enough misery for New Yorkers, it was a blow upon a bruise that was the New York Jets' defeat in last night's AFC Championship Game.

Yes, sadly, our beloved guys in green went down 17-27 to the Indianapolis Colts. Peyton Manning et al. overwhelmed Mark Sanchez and the boys, admittedly playing some top-notch ball. The Jets did well, however, racking up point and taking the lead during the first half of the game. They played hard, fast, and in control -- until the second half when the Colts, like a group of surgeons, went deep in took the game away of our hometown team. That said, Sanchez has had a pretty darn good rookie season and has a bright future. Considering that he's a full decade younger than Peyton Manning, with enough hard work, Sanchez may prove every bit his equal with time.

So let's dry our collective eyes, New York. We can't be greedy. The Giants won the Superbowl two years ago (thanks to Eli, Peyton's bro) and the Jets just finished their best season since 1969. All in all, not bad. There's always next year.
