The New York Jets invite fans to celebrate the start of the season with 2009 Sprint Kickoff Week. The week features a Jets Flight Crew autograph signing at the Jets Shop at 437 Madison Avenue in New York City, a pep rally on the plaza at 1271 Avenue of the Americas outside SportsNet New York's studios, and the creation of a special "Fan Runway" to send the team off to Houston.
The Flight Crew cheerleaders will autograph copies of the 2010 Flight Crew Swimsuit Calendar on Tuesday, Sept. 8, at the Jets Shop flagship store, 437 Madison Avenue at 50th Street. The event will begin at 5 p.m.
Current Jets players will be on hand Thursday, Sept. 10, when the team hosts a pep rally on the plaza at 1271 Avenue of the Americas outside the SNY studios located between 50th and 51st streets at 6 p.m. Fans are welcome to join Flight Crew members, listen to a live concert, pick up giveaways and have the chance to win prizes.
To cap off the week of festivities, fans are invited to the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center to create a special sendoff for the team. When the Jets depart on Saturday, Sept. 12, for Houston to face the Texans the next day in the regular-season opener, fans will form a tunnel that the players will walk through before departing for the airport.
