Boo To Your Booing (Not a Halloween Pun)

There are a lot of things we do well at MTS Centre during Jets games. Goalie chants, catchy chirps for players; “SILVER MEDAL” for Ryan Miller after the Olympics.  “CROSBY’S/OVI’S BETTER” for whichever one is in town.  “REF YOU SUCK”, the list goes on and on for all the cool original stuff we do at the…

How a Spider Catches a Weber

First things first, home opener against Nashville is gonna be weird for me.  Only because for the first time in 10 years (Moose inc), I won’t be working as in-game host for The Winnipeg Jets.  Nor will I even be there!!  I’ll be with every other semi-season seat holder; at home, or my local watering…

JETS PLAYING LIMBO

#457140570 / gettyimages.com The question over the last few years isn’t who will the Jets play in the first round, rather will they even make the playoffs?!?!  The conversation is getting a little old as we’ve expected to be on the bubble of the post season since the Jets made their return to our (One)…

Are We Dating?!? Or…?!?!

The Winnipeg Jets and Paul Maurice remind me of my early 20’s when you go out with a girl a few times, and aren’t sure how to introduce each other when you bump into someone you know.  Without coming out and saying it, they’re going through that awkward, ‘We’re just seeing each other stage’ in…

The Jets Suck?!?!?

I’m tired of people saying that the Winnipeg Jets haven’t gotten any better since last season.  The brass for the Jets since the get-go have stated that this team is going to build through the draft, and build a team reminiscent of The Pittsburgh Penguins and The Chicago Blackhawks.  Chevy being the former Asst. GM…
