As much as life revolves around football and the Jets, there are more important things out there. Today is one of those days that reminds us of that. Memorial Day is a reminder that people fought and died so that we can debate silly things about football on a site like this.
In truth, though, every day should be Memorial Day. We should have the sacrifices made by our veterans, active duty military, reservists, and National Guard members in our minds every day. I do not want to get preachy, but if you get the chance, do something good for a veteran today and every day. Please don't forget to keep that in mind as you enjoy time today with your friends and family.
I know we have some veterans and current military members reading our site so on behalf of all of our writers, moderators, and readers, let me say thank you.
