Hey Jets fans! There's a new place to pick up fan gear -- Sun Life Stadium. But hurry.
Miami Herald columnist Armando Salguero tweeted a picture this morning of a shirt on sale in the Dolphins pro shop: "NEW YORK: Home of the Jets," in that self-satisfied hunter green, hung proudly next to Dolphins stickers, signs and bags that probably haven't needed restocking since the early Fiedler days.
While it seems a bit petty to be threatened by a team that hasn't won a Super Bowl since man landed on the moon, should the Dolphins be hocking New York swag when the team isn't even in town?
Salguero just posted the full run-down: The shirts were on sale for $35 (plus an alleged 50-percent discount) because the team has decided to stop selling opponents' apparel on game day, but they didn't want to get stuck with a stockpile of AFC garbage advertising teams we're supposed to hate. It looks like they'll be stuck with it now, though, because Dolphins CEO Mike Dee told Salguero that he will "remove immediately" the slimy shirt in question.
