Just about 3.5 years ago, Rex Ryan took over as head coach for the New York Jets and began raining guarantees on the New York media (too early for a Hurricane joke here). One of his very first guarantees… meeting President Obama in the Whitehouse after winning the Super Bowl. In fact, Rexy made that one during his first ever press conference.
“First off, with all the cameras I was looking for our new president [Barack Obama] back there. I think we’ll get to meet him in the next couple of years anyway.”
Welp… a slightly less fat (but not slim) version of that man must have been sitting anxiously in front of his TV set last night. Would Obama win and give him 4 more years to try and make good on his promise to Jet fans? Would Romney win and keep his owner, Woody Johnson, happy enough to not fire him after the season? What do you think Katie Couric’s feet look like?
In the end… it looks like Rex will have another 4 years to meet Obama in Washington. But he has his work cut out for him…
