MEET NEW YORK JETS FAN DAVID O’ROURKE!
Author: NY JETS UK CONTRIBUTOR
Welcome back to another Fan Friday! The Jets prepare to host the Chicago Bears at MetLife this Sunday, with a number of UK-based fans making the pilgrimage across the pond to catch the game live!
After a disappointing defeat to the Patriots, the team will look to bounce back in style, with their playoff aspirations still very much in the balance.
You can follow Sunday’s action on NFL GamePass or via social media as usual, where we will be providing updates!
For our fan spotlight this week, we caught up with David O’Rourke, who made his own trip to MetLife earlier this season!
- Name: David O’Rourke
- Twitter: @JetsDavidUK
- Location: Linlithgow, Scotland
- Jets Fan Since: 1985
- First Jets Memory: Watching Mark Gastineau and the New York Sack Exchange - 99 was my first Jets jersey!
- Favourite Jets Memory: At this point, Eric Decker’s overtime winner against the Patriots in 2015.
- Ever Visited Metlife?: Yes. I finally made it to my first Jets home game earlier this season. We went to the 40-17 home win against the Dolphins. What a game to go to!
- Favourite current Jet: So many to choose from just now - but I really like Sauce’s swagger. He has all the tools to be elite and is showing up very well just now.
- Favourite all-time Jet: Another tough one. I think it would have to be Revis. Guy was class. Having someone able to lock down a side of the field was incredible to have. We’ve not really had that presence since (until now!). 😁
Thanks so much to David for sharing his answers and for his fandom - entering it’s 28th year! We hope to see you at more Jets games in future!
