The storied New York Jets NFL franchise has long been full of pride and passionate fans, and the Jets have provided decades of incredible memories for its legion of loyal followers.  The tradition of congregating in the Meadowlands on an autumn Sunday afternoon is the perfect day for any Jets fan, and author Jeff Freier captures this tradition and others in the new book, Jets Underground: Wahoo, Jo, Willie, and the Swingin', Swaggerin' World of Gang Green.

 

Jets Underground: Wahoo, Joe Willie, and the Swingin', Swaggerin' World of Gang Green isn't a history of the New York Jets. It's the true story of the New York Jets.  From the insane to the unbelievable, Jets Underground is a collection of the maddest and baddest of everything that truly makes the Jets the Jets.  The Jets may not be a model franchise.  They may not have won multiple championships.  They may not be America's team, or even all of New York's team. But to the loyal, die-hard fans of Jets Nation who live and die with every play, they're the only team.  Notable sports author and journalist Jeff Freier goes behind the scenes with the most important and famous games, players, and traditions in Jets history, including chapters titled:

 

  • Hustlin' Harry, Slingin' Sammy, and the Birth of the Titans
  • Portrait of a Cowboy in a Strange Land
  • It's Good to Be Joe Namath
  • Monday Night Madness
  • A Fistful of Swagger: The Rex Ryan Jets

 

Hardcore Jets football fans will thoroughly enjoy reading about all of these incredible facts, people, and stories that have created such a legacy for the Jets over the years.  Joe Namath, Don Maynard, Sammy Baugh, Mark Gastineau, Curtis Martin, John Riggins, Wesley Walker, Wahoo McDaniel, and many more influential players and personnel are featured throughout the book.

 

So whether you are tailgating at the new Jets stadium, taking in a road game with the rest of Jets Nation, or watching Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez run the show on TV every fall Sunday, you know you are part of something special as a Jets fan.  If you want to call yourself a true New York football aficionado, increase your knowledge of the franchise, and experience the full extent of Jets football, then Jets Underground: Wahoo, Joe Willie, and the Swingin', Swaggerin' World of Gang Green is a must read.
