So it was a real blast getting a chance to meet with and get to know Earl Christy… #45 of the New York Jets Super Bowl Championship Team. He an was extremely nice guy right off the bat and we became “fast friends” when he learned that I was the “prez” of the Jets Fan Club of Tampa Bay. I even handed him a few of the brand new fan club cards as I’d just gotten them that afternoon.
When I asked if he had on his ring… to my shock and delight… he took it right off his finger and handed it to me! I even got to try it on. That was SOOOO awesome.
He was also an fun and energetic speaker and a pleasure to listen to. I’ll be adding some pictures and some video I took at the event to the web site real soon.

Anyway, Earl is invovled with a number of projects including the Athletes for Education Association and has developed a Sports/Fitness game designed at getting children into shape in a fun and entertaining way.

About Festa

My given name may be Steve but my friends have been calling me Festa for the last 30 years. While I really miss going to all the JETS home games and tailgating with a large group of friends, it’s really great being here in Tampa around other JETS fans while we root for our team. When I founded the fan club in October of 2004 I never imagined it would become as massive as it now has with over 600 members from around the world and sister Fan Club Chapters in 4 other Florida cities and growing.
