    I'm sorry if this is a re post but remember im still a bench warmer. I was just curious if you guys remember you first jet game attended. I think it would be pretty cool to hear from some of the old timers who went to games at shea stadium. Im 29 and went to my first game on Oct 1, 1995 vs Oakland it was a sunday night game on TNT and they got crushed 47-10 i sat in section 301 2nd to last row and loved it. The next day i put my name on the jets waiting list and finally got the ticks last yr. My second game was the same yr last game of the season vs the saints we lost 12-0 dont ask me why i went i guess i had a good deal on the ticks.

    it was a dolphin game here in miami. I mustve been like 8 or 10. I stopped going after i was what mustve been 15 or 16. it was the last year they had glass beer bottles. I was getting up out of my seat with my pops cause the jets just knocked the phins out of the playoffs or something and people were throwing bottles at us. Not cool.

    My first preseason game was a few years ago, Giants vs Jets. My second preseason game is tomorrow, and I'm freaking psyched. My first official Jets regular season game is the season finale vs Herm on December 30.

    I went to the Jets-Giants preseason games in 1986, 1987, and 1994. The Jets went 2-1 in those games. Jack Trudeau hooked up with Stevie Anderson on like a 90-yard TD to win the 1994 game.

    The Jets are 2-5 in preseason with me in attendance. I did see Ookie Vick play in his first ever NFL game in the 2001 preseason.

    The Jets are 2-2 in regular season games I attended. They beat the Bengals in 1993 and 2001. I've seen them lose to the Lions in 2000 and the Patriots in 2005 (final ABC Monday Night game).

    I will also be attending the 12/30 game. We'll have to meet somewhere before the game.

    My First Jet Game was the Jets Miami game at Shea in 1981 , We won 16-15 on a Todd to Barkum TD in the final Seconds.

    I went with my Older brother we Took the Train From LI , I was 13 - we were sitting in the Mezzanine Level Behind the End Zone where the Winning TD was.

    Jets-Colts, AFC Wildcard Game.

    Jets: 41
    Colts: 0

    This game is when I really became a Pennington fan. That was an incredible game, the whole stadium was going NUTS

    Houston 1989 in the Astrodome -- we one after being 8.5 dogs to the first place Oilers -- we sacked Moon in the endzone and recovered his fumble for the winning score -- Mo Lewis had a big game and I was forever a fan --

    Lewis was drafted by the Jets in 1991.

    My first game was November 1997. At home vs baltimore. Neil O'Donnell vs Vinny Testaverde. We won in overtime.

    My first game was the Jets against the World champion Washington redskins in preseason in 1991. That was the year Nagle was gun slinging all over the place and the Jets looked like world beaters. Too bad Browning caught a year long brain freeze and we won only 4 games that year.

    My first Jets game was a 3-0 win vs. the Redskins at RFK in 1993. My first Jets home game was a 31-28 loss to the Dolphins in the final game of the 1-15 season in 1996.

    The game he is describing was played in 1990. The Jets won 17-12. Still one year before Mo Lewis.

    I've only been to 2 games ever, don't get ticket opportunities much.

    First game was against the browns in 02. Classic jets fashion, 21-3 lead at the half, jets lost 24-21 with a blocked john hall FG to end it. The other was the jags game in 05, another close disaster losing in OT, with both chad and jay out for the yr.

    The first game I attended was 3 seasons ago on opening day vs the Bengals. We won that game and I believe Curtis rushed for close to 200 yards and a couple touchdowns.
    I am from Ottawa Canada and have been a huge Jets fan for over 25 years so this was an awesome experience, especially the tailgate party. We now make the trip for every opening day although they have lost the last couple it is one of the highlights of my year.

    My first Jets home game was Oct 2004, against the Niners. I think it was the first time in Jets history we went 5 in a row at the beginning of the season. Had great seats and sprinkled some of my husbands' ashes on the field.

    That game was 1990, Bruce Coslet's first year. Darrell Davis had the sack of Moon in the end zone. Al Toon caught a long TD from O'Brien on a 4th and 1, brilliant fake handoff and Toon was off to the races. :up:

    My first game was 1976 at Shea vs the Bucs, who were an expansion team in the midst of their 0-26 franchise start. I think it was Joe Namath's last win as a Jet, certainly one of his last. He was splitting time with Richard Todd, a rookie. Lou Piccone had a punt return for a TD for the Jets. We were 3-11 that year, the only year of Lou Holtz as Jets coach--he made Rich Kotite look like Bill Parcells.

    You guys are all newbies. My first game was in October 1966 and Oakland beat the Jets 24-21 at Shea. I was 7 years old. In the 60's and 70's I went to a game or two a year. I have had season tix since 81.
