The New York Jets had a nice and easy win against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday and it was another epic tailgate at the infamous L7 Tailgate. It has been a very long time that there was a nice sunny 1pm game for the Jets, and I can’t remember waking up at 5am for a Jets tailgate (remember, I come from PA).
This week it was all about breakfast and yes, we had plenty of eggs. Was there an egg fight at L7? No but we could have as there was over 100 easy.
What another great time at #L7Tailgate yesterday… Much love & thanks to you all… It was great to meet so many new faces too!

Breakfast at L7
Leading up to the week, everyone thought it was a great idea to go big, and have a breakfast tailgate. We were talking eggs, bagels, bacon (tons of bacon), and the famous Crepes Bar from @CrepeSuz0106 and @btomaska . Oh, and the main ingredient, Parsley. HUH. Exactly.
So how did it go? GREAT but…. I’m wondering how I ended up bringing home 2 lbs of butter, 20 bagels, 4 lbs of bacon, and about 3 dozen eggs. I KNOW we ate a lot. I think there were 2 or 3 people who brought 3 dozen eggs themselves. So much for email coordination.
Double_o_six and her Parsely. It just shows up in everything but it never has a purpose.
Brian and Suz get the Breakfast Bar Ready
L7 has been known to get some guests from the media, friends and family members of the players and the officials of the Jets organization. This week was no exception.
L7Panda and Damien05Keller
I personally didn’t get a chance to see Damien, but everyone was who interacted with him said he was very personable and was glad that he popped over.
Damien Keller is the brother of Jets’ Tight End Dustin Keller, who had a HUGE game Sunday.
Wes Conducting an Interview with Brian (NYJSec133)
Wesley Sykes@Wesley_Sykes writes for the JetsInsider.com and was kind to hang out with us for quite a while. He conducted interviews with the founders of the L7 Tailgate and other fans. When we were talking, Wes told me that our tailgate was very cool and dynamic which was different than he experienced at other tailgates.
This is high praise coming from a Patriots fan. No I didn’t misspeak. He is a Hofstra alum but hails from Massachusetts. Because he is great covering the Jets, I’ll forgive him for liking the most hated team for a Jets fan.

As much as we rag on the media for their coverage of the New York Jets, when there is an event OTAs, Jets fans want access to every practice. The next best thing was to read the players' tweets.

Ah the social media debate, I love talking about twitter in particular when it comes to the do's and dont's for professional athletes. Should Jets Players continue to use social media?
