Everybody's all worked up in a lather today about this New York Times article that discusses Jets fans' aggressive and misogynistic behavior at halftime of home games. 

[The men] began an obscenity-laced chant, demanding that the few women in the gathering expose their breasts. When one woman appeared to be on the verge of obliging, the hooting and hollering intensified. But then she walked away, and plastic beer bottles and spit went flying. Boos swept through the crowd of unsatisfied men.

I don't get it.  Are they supposed to act differently at a Jets game than they do at home?

Denisse Rivera, a 23-year-old from the Bronx, was on a first date Sunday. When she arrived at the crowd at Gate D, several men pointed at her, signaling men at all levels to chant in her direction. After a brief moment of hesitation, she flashed them. Then she took a bow.  “I don’t care,” Rivera said when told that video clips of previous incidents, taken on cellphones, ended up online. “I love my body and I like what I have, so let everybody share it.”

Wow.  What a romantic first date.  He takes her to a football game, she flashes several hundred strangers.  Mmm, I smell love.  Wait, no.  That's just the pollutants from Newark.  Now if you'll excuse me, I need to search Facebook and MySpace for "Denisse Rivera."  I got tickets to the monster truck rally — someone's getting lucky!
