Tempting Fate

The New York Jets not only face the dreaded Sports Illustrated jinx this week with QB Mark Sanchez on the cover, but now they're also tempting fate by offering up AFC Champion merchandise for sale.

Teams understandably have this stuff on hand in the event they win a championship game or Super Bowl. You should exercise a little discretion though and not put this stuff on your website until after you win. Football players and coaches are notoriously superstitious and I doubt they'd want to see this.

I perused the merchandise sites for the other three championship gam participants this weekend and none of them have such merchandise available.

On the upside, a lot of kids in Haiti will probably be wearing these shirts should the Jets lose this week.
