Jets Take Out Full Page Ad In KC Star Thanking Thomas Jones

New, comments

Generally anytime someone asks me if I saw the news in today's paper I say, "I probably saw it yesterday."

That's the case 99% of the time. But it was different yesterday when I actually had to buy a copy of the Kansas City Star to check out the full-page ad the Jets brass had taken out to thank Thomas Jones for his three years with the Jets.

I spent a few minutes taking a picture of it on different backgrounds in order to transport it to the site. Then I noticed the New York Times folks had already taken a photo of it.

Here's the text: 

"A person who embodies TOUGHNESS, DEDICATION and LEADERSHIP. Thanks TJ for three great seasons."

And then signed at the bottom:

"Woody Johnson, Coach Rex Ryan, Mike Tannenbaum and the New York Jets."
