Jets - Week 3 - Note: This is not the Agony and Defeat post- That's to come later

A separate football column – “Why I am a Jet fan” will be appearing shortly – here are thoughts not relating to my pain and suffering from the injuries.

For some reason the area around our seats smelled like shit. Not a little, as in reeked of wet shit. Fantastic job Giants Stadium. I actually thought about urinating in the drain below my seat to make the smell better. Instead, we just put food garbage over the drain until the gentle smell of sea-salt potato chips, chicken, and severely muted shit smell wafted in the area.

I think the era of, hmmm, maybe Herm Edwards can become a good coach is over. The man is a menace, sending out injured players is stupid, but calling time outs to give the other team more time to move the ball in the last minute of a game defies all coaching logic. I think Herm is awful, but, ironically (and, for once, I think I am using it correctly) I think he’s the perfect coach for this kind of disaster; because, for all his faults, Herm can always rally the troops and turn a disaster into something worth fighting for. He’ll just never lead the Jets to the Super Bowl, but he can turn a 4-12 season into an 8-8 season.

My hot betting continues, I was 0-3 and I think I would have been 0-3 if I got an extra 15 points in each game. I finally got one right though, got the under in that great Monday Night game, too bad I also took the Chiefs and LSU. Jess and I ran our record to 17-29 or good for last place in our league of 60 people. So far I’m 1-8 on the season; you don’t see anyone advertising that on television.

Seems that the best way to win in fantasy football is to bitch as much as possible about your team. Kind of like bitching about a bad beat in poker, guaranteed to make everyone else at the table like you and you certainly win hands as soon as you start bitching. Should be noted that I destroyed Greg, I beat him so bad he was crying after. Crying, I say.

I got a sympathy e-mail from a friend who I hadn’t talked to in a year and my boss about the Jets. Also the 60 year old woman, who knows nothing about football, was visibly shocked when she read the Jets signed Testeverde. I don’t think she could name ten football players but the phrase “Shocked and appalled” was used.

Brooks Bollinger, sounds like Rick Meier, Glenn Foley, or Frank Reich to me.
I love the trade rumors flying around. My personal favorite, Jonathan Vilma for Phillip Rivers, somehow, I just don’t see the Jets making that trade right now.

I like this thread from Jets Insider, apparently the Jets have been cursed by Joe Namath, or some ridiculous deal. I like it.

Also fun to read, responses to Vinny signing with the Jets. We are a miserable bunch of people.

Around the rest of the league:

I got nothing, really. I was so miserable about the Jets QB situation that I don’t care about the rest of the league. Though I hear the Bengals and Bucs are good and the Saints aren’t. Eli’s going to be good, Jeremy Shockey is a little bitch, and New Englandis still the best team in football. I guess, the big thing about the NFL this week was that nothing particularly remarkable happened, other than teh Jets thing. Pats won, Cleveland and Green Bay lost, Carolina is going to confuse people all season long the good RBs had big yards. Kind of a ehh week.

Bets for Week 4 (Please take these and bet the opposite) - For the Season 1-8
Jets +7.5 -Really, is Baltimore going to score that many points?
Jacksonville -4 Vs. Denver - I think Denver is a bad football team on the road
Oakland -3 Vs. Dallas - I would put money on this, but a part of me wonders about Kerry Collins vs. a Bill Parcells defense.

Monday Night Wings @ St. Marks, is the greatest thing ever. But I always feel so ill on Tuesday, I think that means no All You Can Eat Sushi on Tuesday for a while. In fact, I kind of feel ill just thinking about it.

Despite it all, I think the Jets still win 6-8 games this year and Vinny will be leading the team in about two weeks. Of course, I thought I thought the Jets were going to win the game in OT. So much rage.

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
