Here’s a preview of the New York Jets’ 2012 “Flight Crew” Cheerleader Swimsuit calendar. Owner Woody Johnson’s daughters created this year’s calendar. His daughter Daisy Johnson shot the photos while sister Jaime served as art director. It’s selling for $18 at jetsshop.com, says spokesman Jesse Derris.
UPDATE: New York Post Outs Teen – Eliza Kruger – From the Post:
Sexy rich girl Eliza Kruger not only bragged on Facebook about “MARK F–ING SANCHEZ” texting her after they flirted at a hip Manhattan nightclub on New Year’s Eve — she also took photos of a mussed-up bed in his boudoir as “proof” of their huddle just days later.
“We went back to his place in Jersey after dinner. He lives on a golf course. There was a big storm,” Eliza told Deadspin.com, according to that website, which identified her only as E.K.
Asked if she “hooked up” with the 24-year-old Sanchez that night — after they dined together at Midtown hotspot Nobu the first week of January — the Greenwich high-school senior said, “Yeah,” albeit somewhat reluctantly, according to Deadspin.
EARLIER: The guys over at Deadspin have their claws on another NFL player (remember the Brett Favre-Jenn Sterger fiasco?) and once again it involves a Jets quarterback and an unusual relationship with a young woman. Something in the NYC water, perhaps?
Please note (as Deadspin does frequently in their article) that it is legal for Mark Sanchez, 24, to uh, “date” a 17-year-old. (Here’s a handy “Age of Consent” reference guide to those of you who might need it.) So what’s the big deal, right? The fact that the girl’s lawyer is trying to get the story killed–even though she contacted Deadspin–tells you something is up. Or it could just be that she doesn’t want them posting a picture of her smoking a cigarette or that somehow she and her other underage friends were at a nightclub on New Years Eve when she met Sanchez.
No comment yet from Roger Goodell or the image-conscious NFL.
This is a story about a famous quarterback’s courtship of a 17-year-old girl and the girl’s conflicting emotions about fame. No one committed any crimes, as far as we know. It’s perfectly legal for the New York Jets’ Mark Sanchez to date a 17-year-old girl. He can do it in Manhattan. He can do it at his home on a North Jersey golf course. She’s legal. This story has stormy nights and 2 a.m. text messages and cute photographs and mean professional gossips and very angry lawyers, which is to say it’s a story about love.
If you thought that the New England Patriots were going to be among the things to bet on for the Super Bowl @ BetUs, you’ll have to change your plans. There also won’t be wacky lines on Tom Brady’s hair, his girlfriends or anything relating to the Pats or their star quarterback.
On Sunday, the Patriots were stunned when the New York Jets sent them packing from the postseason with a 28-21 loss.
The Jets were talking trash all week long and many people felt that they should walk the walk before talking the talk – especially since they were talking to a team that has more Super Bowl wins than any other franchise in the NFL over the last decade. But instead, the Jets backed it up with one of their best performances of the season. They stifled the Patriots in the first half, holding them to just three points.
A lot of people were shocked by the halftime score of 14-3 because in the previous meeting, the Patriots stomped the Jets 45-3. Sunday’s game was supposed to have a similar result as the odds makers listed the Jets as 10-point underdogs to start the week. As it turns out, the Jets should have been favored.
New York did much more on offense than anyone expected as they scored 28 points. Their most important touchdown came early in the fourth quarter, just after the Patriots scored their own touchdown along with a two-point conversion to cut the lead to 14-11.
On the first play of the fourth quarter, Mark Sanchez found Jerricho Cotchery for a 58-yard gain to get the ball to the Patriots 13-yard line. Two plays later, Sanchez found Santonio Holmes for a seven-yard touchdown to extend the lead to 21-11. The Patriots were simply outplayed and outcoached, and while they have been extremely dominant at home in the regular season (27 straight regular season home wins when Brady starts at quarterback), this is now their third straight home playoff loss.
The Jets will visit Heinz Field next weekend to face the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game.
