As you may or may not know, Boomer Esiason is the reason why I'm a Jets fan. So of course, when I found out he had a Twitter account, I had to follow him. It didn't disappoint. The following are tweets from @7BOOMERESIASON from the past hour or so, as he travelled from the CBS studios in New York City to JetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey to do the satellite radio broadcast.
In response to which team he is picking tonight:
7BOOMERESIASON Boomer Esiason
@Pparisi515 Jets tonight
On getting across the river:
On the performance of the Ravens:
@DMGTaxService had to have, most impressive. Reminds me and Us and the Oilers back in the day. They hate each other.
On a national anthem performance:
More after the jump.
On whether he should yell, "Do you know who I am?" out of his car window:
@ensane15 tried that I got booed, fond memories I guess.
In response to @Simms5611, who said the trip home "will be a cakewalk":
@Simms5611 Oh yeah lots of fun that will be. You and Lofton can do the game without me as I direct traffic on the turnpike,:)
On picking against the Ravens:
@DMGTaxService any time us 4 idiots pick the same team always go the other way.
Should have taken a helicopter! Oh yeah that would've been boooooooooJie..
Hanging with the Range Rovers, BMWs, and Mercedes. I guess they're the ones who can afford the tix and parking.
On getting a police escort:
@MariaAccardi I'm not that important. Gov Christie would have a stroke.
On taking the train:
@TomHarnisch oh yeah that would've been fun!
@RickNCincy Long season savor the victory but don't touch the money
@95Sports I'm driving a Tahoe.
On if the Ravens can get to the Super Bowl:
@DMGTaxService of course they can. I like Flacco.
On the traffic situation:
@DMGTaxService it sux
Why do I feel like skiing when I get to this Stadium?
So jackass smoking a cigar just cut me off. Feel like getting out and beating him down. Punk.
Confirming that he's doing radio tonight:
Troopers look pissed
German Shepards look really pissed. I'm not getting out of the car.
On whether he is driving:
@iamerock nope in the back seat
The world we now live in.
Wow Jets fan are into this. No #7 jerseys though. Just as I thought.
Well, I don't know about you but I found that very entertaining. Next time you go to a game, please show Norman some love and wear your #7 jersey.
