Jets to Honor Connecticut Shooting Victims


The Jets have announced they will wear decals on their helmets remembering the victims of Friday's shooting in Connecticut.

The impact of the shootings in Newtown, Conn., on Friday have been felt far and wide, from the immediate area of Sandy Hook Elementary School in western Connecticut, 60 miles from New York City, throughout the tristate area and in all parts of the country and beyond.

The New York Jets will honor the victims, 20 of them schoolchildren, tragically killed Friday morning by wearing decals on their helmets for their Monday night game against the Titans at LP Field in Nashville, Tenn. The circular decals will display the initials S.H.E.S., for Sandy Hook Elementary School.

It's a nice touch. The Giants and the Patriots are doing something similar. I would also imagine the Jets will be involved in the community and charities relating to the tragedy. We'll be sure to share any additional news.
