Chicago News Station Does Perfect Imitation of Angry Jets Fans (Video)
When I heard that WGN in Chicago sent a group of guys out on the streets pretending to be angry Jets fans ahead of the 2015 NFL Draft, my first thought was that they should probably leave the sketch comedy to the folks at Second City.
However, I quickly learned that I was very wrong. WGN totally nailed the true essence of Jets fandom, and the bit turned out to be pure gold.
It starts out with the news anchors showing a short montage of angry Jets fans reacting to their team’s draft picks over the years. Then they cut to their pack of faux Jets fans out on the streets, asking people questions and showing disgust for whatever they have to say. And eventually they move on to just booing everything for the sake of being contrarian…just like actual Jets fans.
Like I said, it’s pure gold. Take a look:
I don’t know about you, but I pretty much lost it when they started chanting “Red Cross! Red Cross!” at the women collecting money for charity.
