The Longest Week: Jets announce game plan for 9/11

joshsternberg:

ESPN’s Rich Cimini reports:

The Jets announced details of their plans to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of September 11th. The plans have a Super Bowl-like feel to them. Check it out:

PRE-GAME:

• Each fan will receive an American Flag upon entrance to MetLife Stadium.

• Taps…

* At halftime, a man dressed as Osama bin Laden will be concussed
* Penalty flags will be American flags.
* Placekickers on both teams replaced by Alan Jackson and Lee Greenwood.
* A safety will be worth 9/11ths of a point.
* If the Jets are losing at the end of regulation time, they will be allowed to extend the game indefinitely, switch opponents to an unrelated team, and add a “surge” of fresh players.

    I’m sorry - I love my country, I live in NYC, whatever. I was only 8 or 9 when 9/11 happened, and it didn’t affect me...
